The still driven Road
Rattling along the tumultuous road, some road this
the long road of life,
With all its pit falls and pot holes
We still go on with this toot-toot bumpy ride!
An arduous journey right from inception and conception
Each element of Nature leashes out its fury time and again
Bearing the scorch of heat, brunt of thunder claps
and some bone chattering icy chills,
Rolling on and on with the turning wheel of time.
Oh! the twists and turns, perplexing cross roads
Some new adventure each time undercover and camouflaged.
Feel blessed when driving down the silken smooth carpeted paths
Lush green meadows passing by as lucid flowers waltz..
butterfly caress of the musical satin soft breeze,
And then again yet, the wobbly rough rocky terrain
A jolt of bleak reality from the suffused sunlit dreamland,
Some stark pitch dark nights to test one's faith
Trust the guiding star in the sky, the bright path finder
After the day's warm sunshine submerges deep down in the ocean.
Truly gifted are those endowed with their soul mate
To cherish and cheer on these much trodden paths
A shoulder to shed a silent tear when the blues hit hard
That God sent Angel especially for one
To share joys and ease sorrows, soften brutal burdens
Making one feel so loved and desired
A friend, a partner, a guide, a lover...
Who could bunch up a cluster of joys from life's thorny thickets.
Or else like millions before us have come,wandered
traversed and left, vanished
Solitary we come and solitary we go
Empty handed we come but hope so, to depart
with one handful of worthy blessings
Spreading the fragrance of beautiful existence
that lingers around for at least some time to come.
