And i sing through the tears

I sing and I smile,
but today I cry
and so I sing
I sing through the tears

I sing as I see the moon inch closer to my window
the man in the moon calls to me
ready to step onto my balcony riding his pearly white stallion,
the great big orb will consume me, soon and then I will be one with the stars.

My name is already written amidst the stars
sprinkled with dream-dust
it sparkles and glitters,
as tears bounce off its edges, glittering in the moonlight like uncut diamonds.

And so I'm lost,
but my soul is found, You found me
and I found salvation, love, purpose, existence, life, dreams, nightmares, pain, pleasure, beginning, end, love, lust, hate, anger, wrath, smiles, tears, cries, melody, song, i found rhyme, poetry, I found the sun, moon and the stars
and everything else in between.

And for that I thank thee,
and for that I cry as I sing, for its the song of happiness.

There's absolute fluidity in it, no doubt... I loved it

And though i didn't really find myself relating to this piece of yours, I could say it has a nice feel... and a nice mood in general. For me, somehow, it wasn't intense..

reminds me of a line

'our sweetest songs are those made of our saddest thoughts'

smthin like that, dunt even remmem the poem's title

der Bergwind said...

@ the gypsy..

'our sweetest songs are those that speak of our saddest thoughts...'

u seem to have come full circle, as the emotions listed in the poem? have to felt and mastered them all?? aha! it also covers quite a timeline from the fairy tale stallion to the mature demands of human life.. who do u thank? for ur own world creation...??

Raghav said...

bergwind...myself, who else is there?
