A Paper Boat
Life journeying through waves of events
With each breath drawing to its terminal point
Like a paper boat braving the turbulent currents
And every move loosening its folds and joint
How to spend love’s inexhaustible treasure?
How to drown in this fathomless sea
How short is the time to share this pleasure!
Merge souls defying recognition as you and me
Enjoy the boat ride while its strength stays
Deny not to your eyes the beauty of open seas
Lend your ears to the music of serene waves
Milk every moment each possibility squeeze
Petty squabbles and clashes steal irretrievable time
Let the fine instincts of giving emerge from soul
Let the poetry of love float in horizon and rhyme
For death is lying in ambush to play its role
