How many gardens in this World of ours.

Hold blossoms that never come to flowers,

A sudden wind comes coldly by,

The wild tree bids its fairest bud good bye.


How many ships of ours go out to sea

In search of Havens, that shall tranquil be;

The storms of fate their fairest hopes o'er set,

And there is naught to do except forget.



How many wear a smile upon their face,

Although their hearts may hold an empty place;

None know the heights or depths of their regrets,

But God remembers,when the World forgets.

23.1.17.
