Time to blow out!

It was only yesterday
when everything seemed perfect
heavens had showered blessings
sea had made a pact with sails

time a soul-friend became
events then hardly mattered
love was the only anchor
peace prevailed every hour

then darkness suddenly gathered
a gale approached too close
entire harmony got shattered
a stirring moment for the soul

a flame had stayed upright
fighting this oncoming gale right
in every cloud with silver lining
source of strength kept searching

the gale had touched the soul
not a string there was to grope
flickering flame struggled, lost hope
it was time to blow out and bow !
