I have been busy doing things
        Time has been a tyrant from the beginning.

Too busy to pen the poem inside me as it died,
        Too busy to notice my friend by my side.

Never saw the rays of hope in the sunrise,
        Nor that of love in the sunset.

Missed the kiss as i caught the bus,
        Forgot the gift of the smile as I got caught in the rush.

I danced too hard to listen to the music,
        I heard the song, just don't remember it.

Maybe I have been sleepwalking through life
        Even though its been strife after strife...

Trying too hard, its been quite a while,
        I have to step back, let go and just smile.

    Delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed this! Please keep writing, Girish. Too busy you say, then maybe keeping a pad in your pocket and jotting down your thoughts as they come may help! Fantastic write! Peace and love, Audrey

    I can agree with you on this one. Somewhere along the way I got trapped and forgot to live. I worked and was stressed until I don't know how I was living. I like every line in this one. Keep writing. Sara
