Lights

Light a lamp
for yourself
tonight,

let the night
also
celebrate you
tonight,

the day
you dedicated
to the miscellaneous
chores,

the one’s
that are thankless
in spite
of efforts endured,

Light a lamp
for yourself
tonight,

the stars
too need
an inspiration
to shine,

and I’ll see
your reflections
in a thousand
mirrors,

scattered
across
this soulful
night.

Hi, I write on my blog vidursahdev@wordpress.com what comes to mind, and the mind is often as restless as the unpredictable waves.

I love this poem & post. I have updated my recent post on street lamps to include your poem.

Thanks a lot Cheri. May I request a correction in the name of the writer of the piece to Vidur Sahdev instead of Manish Thakur 🙂
