In the stillness of the night
doing nothing at all, I,
envelope myself in deep silence
where I cast everything else aside
and, stop to pause to make sense
of my current state of affairs
musing over what caused it all!
In a pensive mode as I contemplate
asking myself whether is this person
whom I wanted to be all along, and
is this the place where I wanted to belong
the answer unveils in my reflection
where I fail to recognize both
for this is not how 'twas meant to be!
I reflect over the chronicle of my life
marked by my events of success and failure
where at every milestone; I revelled or learnt
and realized that it's the candle of life
masked as a cog in the moving wheel of time
harbouring me to the safe shores, whenever
I've lost my sense of direction n' purpose!
Such candles unexpectedly come n' go unbidden
the onus is on us to value n' savour every moment
of their guidance while being taken care of;
and then continue with our journey of life
renewed with vigor n' a sense of pure faith
that there's an angel up there for all of usto watch over us and our life's musings!
