April to April

Written by: Fatima Bhopali

Last April, for me, had dull and dark days
God will bless, had said, the Hopeful May

Than came June with a shower of love
Happy was July as, I found my beloved

August we planned for bells to ring 
December the fifth, for the vows to sing

From shop to shop went sweet September 
Flowers and star to adorn the December 

Waiting and longing for my lover
Please skip the year, Oh Dear October

The naughty November, bought me a surprise
And you left me alone, breaking all ties

With broken dreams came dear December 
Memories of past hitting like a hammer 

New hope I will get, to me, said January 
Leave the past behind and do not worry

February came and then came March
Your love in my heart, still like fire, a parch 

Looking at my life with a blank gaze,     
April, for me, has dull and dark days.
