Light a Deep of Happiness or Hopes

Light a Deep of Happiness or Hopes


Light a Deep of Happiness or Hopes
Today is Dewali,*
Light a Deep* of happiness or hopes 
in your life,
Even if, you are not celebrating Dewali,
just wait a little more and
Light at least a candle of hope.

If, no hopes are visible all around you,
Bring a smile on your gloomy face,
and wipe all the tears from your eyes,
as your hopes are bound to bring your dreams
sooner or later close.

Today is Dewali,
Light a Deep* of happiness or hopes 
in your life,
Even if you are not celebrating Dewali
just wait a little more,
Light at least a candle of hope.

*Dewali. The Indian festival of lights based on Indian culture.
* Deep is a Hindi word means an earthen Lamp
