                                               SILENCE OF THE LAMP

                              That day the sunrise was not so beautiful
                               The flowers were pale without fragrance
                                  The day was neither sunny nor rainy
                       No breeze and no humming of sweet songs of birds
                                 Silence everywhere! Freezing silence!
                           She lay on the pink bed like a pale rose petal
                                  Her face with a broken little smile
                                Bright yet like the silence of the lamp
                            A bolt from the blue to everyone knew her
                      Leaving a puzzle to all she pulled the curtain down
                             And rode alone to a world never to return
                                 She was eloquently bold yet charming
                  The course of her life took a wrong turn with some buts
                           The incorrigible buts led her to an imbroglio
                                From which one rarely finds way out
                        Once written one cannot rub out and rewrite;
                              The story of life cautiously be written
                           Once we’ve mounted on the horse of life
                             It gallops only to forward heading fast
                                The rein must be safe in our hand 
         The traveler must control the horse; and not the horse the traveler
                            The distance left behind is left forever
                         Along the road of life we travel only once
          It moves only in straight line from the first to the last breath
                    Everyone asked each other the stale questions
                                     What happened to her?
                                       Why did she do it?
                   She hoodwinked all with that little broken smile
                          Bright yet like the silence of the lamp
