Jharna झरना [Waterfall]







i watched you sleep

like angels
birthed
from the golden eyes
of heaven


i watched you sleep
as the rain
fell
peaceful and calming
to me


my soul
watched you sleep
and your spirit,
spoke


and i watched you sleep
as rivers raged
and oceans roared
and Mother Nature quaked and came
then bellowed
from the very depths
of the crusts of caves


that this time is precious

like diamonds buried deep within the snow
and sand
as it falls from the palm of one's hand
and every solitary tear
never wasted in vain


like every smile


a song of hope

and i watched you sleep
like angels
birthed
from the golden eyes
of heaven
