On A Cold Winter Night
‘Twas a cold winter night
As I sat on the bench ~trite
The windchime echoing to the breeze
Soft ,sombre the music of the leaves
Leaves that danced sullenly to the breeze
Lost in thought with eyelids heavy
Constant musings kept me busy
So lost in though that I hardly realized
A soft hand held my hand unapprised
Those were His hands to my surprise.
Holding hands we went on a heavenly ride
Together we pierced the starry sky so wide
Lost in His calm empyrean smile
I was ready to cover a million mile
How deeply was I beguiled all that while !
I had no clue if I was alive
Or of my family’s love I was deprived
His presence made these thoughts subside
Such was the magic of His smile
That I was so deeply beguiled !
” Unfurl the banner that witholds
Many a secret that are untold “
I gently asked the King Of Kings
By now my curiosity had taken wings
No sooner did he gave in to my pleadings
Than I heard the birds who had started to sing.
Night descended slowly , light started to shine
His hands no longer held mine
I was alone on that bench trite
Slowly and gently I opened my eyes
And embraced the new day so bright.
Ah ! I gave a faint smile
Once again the secrets took their veil
But that’s life! Sometimes it doth reveal
Sometimes it doth conceal
If not yesternight, maybe tonight
One day everything will be alright
I shall find my answers one day
and that day is not too far away!
