Wandering Clouds

NOTE : I have missed my PS friends quite a lot,
while I was away from PS, due to various reasons,
but writing today something is giving me lot of pleasure. 

Wandering Clouds

Time never stops for any one, O’ beloved,
It comes and goes like the wandering clouds,
Never stopping for more than few moments. 

Without caring ever for the charms of anything,  
It goes away from our hands, as the sands slips away.

Even pleasure hardly stops for few moments, 
After reaching the prime of its youth and peak,
No one can hold the beautiful moments for ever,  
As it too comes and goes like the wandering clouds.

Leaving only the fragrance of its presence for ever,
On the horizons of our minds and heart, O’ beloved.

But pain always stays with us, more than the pleasure,
Being the true companion of every suffering human,
It stays to make us more bold and beautiful, and 
Capable to face the lofty pleasures.

    Your words are so true Ravi, for every up there comes a down and vice vers - so it goes, just hope we are flexible enough to enjoy the ride.

    Heya Ravindra, nice to see you around again. Strong message that you have woven so well into the imagery. Very nice imagery, in fact. This poem definitely has a lighter, softer touch than some of your other poem. Well done.
