The Life Colours

by Ehsan Sehgal

That's the great
And beautiful
In the journey of life
If someone becomes
Realistic and fair companion
To spend with happy
And pleasure
All moments together

Life will go peacefully
If we keep honestly
An eye on every event
To guard ourselves

You are as like a flower
I am as like the dew
Naturally connected
Each other

Dew falls on the flowers
As like the pearl
I wish that
I pray that
The life stays
As beautiful
As like dew and flowers
Far from the evil hands
until our life journey ends.
