Some memories like guardian angels act as saviours in your hour of gloom...

Your Reflection in the Star


Last night I plucked a Star from Heaven

And tried to see your reflection in it.

The silver light was shining bright

And you were smiling with it.


I recalled the tinkling laughter

that use to light up your face,

The crinkling at the corner of your eye

As the twinkle of your smile

Made my heart warm up to you.

That night I fell in love with you…


And the night sky whispered softly:

don’t wait for me, don’t wait for me,

‘Cause I am not returning to thee…'

And yet my heart, so full of warmth,

Feels your breath close by, talking to me…


Tears glistening in my eyes quietly tell me:

Memories are like Moon in the sky-

Waxing and waning, waxing and waning

Keep recurring, tenderly, inevitably…
