Impermanence



When I was lying there,
Where the stars shone brightly,
And the moon,
Gazed back at me,
A cloud went by.

She paddled her feet,
On rippled water,
The waves rose up,
To greet her,
Before deciding to subside.

A sweet song,
Hummed its way,
Into my ears,
Before it was hushed,
By a careless smile.

A moment passed,
Before my eyes,
I held the moment,
For a while,
And let it fly.

brilliant...
i can sing one song for this..
It wud be on the same lines as u feel for the moment u let fly away...
Hum hain is pal yaha..jane ho kal kaha..
hum mile na mile
hum rahe na rahe..
rahegi sada yaha
pyaar ki yeh daasta
sunegi sada jisee..
yeh zamin yeh aasma....

Feels the same yeah??

Certain moments only need to be held for a moment before they etch themselves into your heart.
