Tears

Toddler sniffling,sobbing,nose drooling

Incessant tears from wondrous eyes

Like clear sparkling raindrops from the skies

Cause of tears? the bursting of a mere balloon

Buy him another and his face lights up like noon


The turbulent ,anxious sleepless night

Preparing for the "greatest fight"

English examination for Class eight

Results emerge very soon after

Teenage tears of joy followed by laughter


School is over ,college classes have ended

Youngster is happy for the degree contended

In his tiny childhood room a drop he sheds

His heart feels leadened and heavy

Yearns for a fragment of school............


Ten,twenty,grows to thirty grands

Monthly take-home salary package

Two decades have passed ..now mid-age

His dear loving elders have left him

Tears trickle down... his face is grim


He is now old- the Zombie Frankestein

He has all he wanted save his yesteryears

His"body machine" is now on ventilator

He is mortally scared - death he fears

He is leaving us ! should we shed tears?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I have pasted my words on the PC screen.Read or not read is readers' choice.I don't have much vocabulary being a non-English speaking person.


I pick up my colour tubes of words

Very few I do really have ,wish I had more

Nonetheless I TRY POE-TRY it's fun

Mostly the paintingTRY  is gibberish

To make it somewhat presentable that's my wish
