The Solo Rose

I got up with brood,
Like past few days,I was in explosive mood.
The lonely nights,
The absence of fights,
Dinner and lunches got burnt ,with my thoughtful mood,
Lack of some beautiful company,
and unshared worries added to the agony.
It was a hot hot day,
and to keep random thoughts away,
I took a walk in my dying garden.
I was stuck with the sight of a solo rose,
smiling at me,striking a pose.
My mind turned sides
i beamed a smile so wide.
I was not so alone after all,
A rose had survived the heat and the fall.
I thanked my unknown bosom buddy,
and decided to live the days on a better note.

    WE SOMETIMES THINK THAT WE HAD THE WORST…JUST LOOK AROUND AND SEE HOW SOMEONE SUFFERED MOST YET CAN SHARE A SMILE…THINGS DO happen IN TIMES UNEXPECTED BUT THEY TOO WILL BE GONE AWAY IN TIME UNEXPECTED AS WELL… 🙂
