A Moment to Smile...

Treasuring memories of the past
In painful nostalgia and mystic grief
In present, while attempting to relive
Spare a moment, to just smile.

Time takes from us, what is due
What life giveth, not lasting true
In a struggle to be of heart; content
All wealth abounds in that little smile

Volcanoes erupt as temper lost to disrupt
Massive landslides and friends to foes
As time sets sail and calm prevails
Crossing paths shall merge, just smile

Hurt at mind, hurt at heart
A tiring life, wounded with scars
To forget all, O` Lord!, I need…
All I need is a moment to smile
Some wise person once remarked.. "The most beautiful thing in the world is a child`s innocent smile" So very true.
Life would be so much easier, if all of us just remembered, all of us just spared a moment to smile at Life!.

Your message is very clear! "Spare a moment to smile" Must check whether this curved line indeed puts thing straight?! And yes, kids smiles are adorable!

Aswin said...

Very heart touching blog, what made you write it, did you face any such experience like losing some of your cousins. Anyway great blog , keep up the good work:-)

Vinesh said...

You need no reasons to smile.
And reasons will be born!

Srijith Unni said...

@Lavanya : Sure , you must try it. More often than not a simple smile has worked wonders.

@aswin : Thanks aswin, Have I lost cousins..? Yes aplenty, during the tsunami, during the earthquakes etc.. but what made me write this.. Well!, I`ve found out that a small smile can often repair relationships as well as form them.

@vinesh : Your words are perfect, as smile will sure create reasons to smile again.

Thanks for all your coments..

Another excellent one Srijith!

Yes, so very true - there is no describing the...lifting of worries moment that occurs when you see a child smile. Its as if the whole world has stopped! It amazes me how often we overlook and underestimate it...


Srijith Unni said...

that was a really cute thought and i completely agree with u. i personally believe that on days, when i started off for work, seeing some innocent child smiling; i have had a very good day throughout.

Srijith Unni said...

Hi Amrita,

Yes, I always try to find a child every morning..

And to smile is truly something, we need to put across to the next generation.
