YEAR 2020

On the stroke

Of midnight

The year 2020

Under a canopy

Of a moonlight night

Will slowly fade away


I have a very

Special request

Let’s sprinkle the seeds

Of Tolerance Respect Dignity

Understanding for all of humanity


Let’s focus on the innocent victims

Who have lost loved ones

Causing agonising excruciating pain

Wondering when will they ever see

Their loved ones again?

Wiping away their

Sun drenched tears

Or no amount of consoling

Will bring their loved

Ones back

Alas! all they have is

Precious memories

To keep the flame

Of love alive till eternity
