River Soliloquy

Through the lush green valley,

Listening the larks sing in the dark,

Inhaling the soft fragnance of dawn,

Dancing I pass out of that valley,

Bidding a sweetgoodbye.

With cherished dreams in my eyes,

I wonder of what lies ahead,

Now I pass in between the meadows,

Lambs loitering around grazing,I see,

Sky above ever so serene and azure.

Oh! my streams frolicking profoundly,

Whirling,swirling and giggling swiftly,

Waves jumping higher and higher,

To see beyond the sight what lay,

Flirting with the tulips at the edges.

Passing through a rocky mountain,

Which seemed a stone-hearted beast,

But melted seeing my twinkling eyes,

There I played with the falling spring,

Infatuated by his charms, unwilling to part.

But once again bidding a painful goodbye,

Set for what lay ahead, to fulfill my desires,

Increasing in volume with crystal clear water,

For the grace of God, I feel so complete,

Silently bowing my head in gratitude.

Hopes springing up and quivering inside,

And happiness embracing me around,

I see local fellows doing their deeds,

Passing through a small bustling town,

Oh! Lord in the heaven, bless them all.

With happy memories deep in my heart,

Moving ahead experiencing this sweet life,

Eager to meet my long cherished destination,

And throw myself into the arms of the ocean,

I walked alone the path of my life soliloquy.
