Why

Why short poem

Photo by Nono Fara

The pages of life have been filled
To the brim
Only few breaths are left
Clinging to those few with hope yet alive
Only memories of those moments
Which have passed are left
Why there is a feeling of suffocation in the aching heart
Why in these days of no hope
There is still a thin ray of hope
The heart waits again and again for what kind of happiness
Why it desires that which can be a dream only
Why it desires that which weakens the heart
Why why and why

Poet’s Note:
The heart yearns for more and more knowing its days are numbered yet it clings to dear life for that one dream which was never fulfilled.

@savi_mani….live life to the fullest…every moment that you have of life need to be enjoyed and cherished…pondering on why …takes away the romance of life out of life….WHY worry when we know not what is in store ….WHY waste precious moments thinking of WHY….that could well be spend enjoying the present moment and the beautiful moments of the past….that is how I look at life….pages of life gets filled to the brim only when the chapter is closed…..till then life can be enjoyed……

…yet the human mind is such that it clings to hope and that is what keeps life going…that is the WHY of life…well written….stimulating…

“The pages of life have been filled
To the brim
Only few breaths are left
Clinging to those few with hope yet alive
Only memories of those moments
Which have passed are left” Time and tide waits for none. Only what waits is old memories. Some blurred and some fresh. Ma’am this poem is very very well penned. All the feelings carved in like the beads of gem in a Mughal ring. Loved reading it. 🙂
