So it happened

a poem by Rati Saxena

It so happened this time
Sunlight jumped in the well
Darkness went on sleeping, covering its face
Prayers spread in the sky
Daylight could not open its mouth

So it happened this time
He closed the door quietly
Footprints also disappeared
Closed lips could not shed a tear
Not a single word dropped from eye

It happened only this time
Journey lost its way
Who could take pains to search for it
Life kept rolling on the track
