Dear Life
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 
I thank you
Dear life of mine 
for moments empty and full
with dignity I live through each
no matter how you push and pull 
 
I thank you
for your untold treasures
they will not be mine in the hereafter
the day I leave empty-handed
What then do I need to chase after? 
 
I thank you
you have filled my years to the brim
with unswerving loyalty of loved ones
and the tinkle of their laughter
Grateful my cup of joy overruns 
 
I thank you
for the gift of life-long friends
and the echoes of fun-filled youth
together they bring me untold cheer
and gently my worries they soothe 
 
I thank you
For all that you have not given
Or taken away over time
I have learnt many a lesson
staying in tune with every clime 
 
Thank you, I say over and again
For all your summers, winters and rain
