…and the stranger smiled!

a poem by Punit N Parikh

People wish for a fistful of happiness,
well I had loads of it.
People wish to feel fame,
well I touched pinnacle of glory.
…and the stranger smiled!

People dream wishing it to come true,
But dreams fade with passing night.
I desired and I achieved!
It’s I who talked, people listened.
…and the stranger smiled!

A gush of breeze and things changed,
Time passed I lost.
People turned their back; no one cared.
…and stranger still smiled once again!

This time I realized the importance of His smile,
Yes god’s always beside you!
