Silver Linings (A Collaboration)

This is my second collaborative poetry with Aquib. I humbly thank him for his meaningful verses. He really knows how to move anybody with his words.

Accept my gratitude Aquib ji and stay blessed πŸ™‚

Born alone

Will die alone

Variation amid

The fleeting world

And His design

For us!

.

.

.

Wait,

For a day is

Bound to come,

A sunny day.

It will shine, but

Before dawn just

Bear the darkness

Of the night.

.

.

.

This chapter warns,

Be alone, if you want

But don’t be lonely!

Oh dear you need someone,

Or more than one!

.

.

.

There were pages,

Filled with gloom and murk,

But that’s the part of the book.

Rest all are blank pages,

All you need is to write

Afresh with smile on the face.

Pouring out harbingers of hope.

.

.

.

We were born for each other,

Still there is hatred,

Intolerance,

Antagonism,

War.

I may go out but I have to stop

The words are now smothering me.

.

.

.

We were precisely apart

But seems so close,

A string connects us,

A feeling, an ardor untouched..

We shall pass those hurdles,

& cross into uncharted

Gaiety and blissful territory.

.

.

.

Forlorn soul

Come to life!

Yours is divine

Discover your purpose. And

Don’t bulwark in those

Shadowy past,

Don’t lose your strings

Of the harp.

Don’t lose the anchor

Around your harbour.

Don’t lose the source,

Where you pour out the sorrows.

.

.

.

Open the shut windows,

Let rays of sunshine,

Lit your days and darkness.

Don’t cry and hush away,

Step out of door,

Into the world of precious gems.

Start slowly, stop being

Lonely.
