The hourglass

The glee, that lit up my face,

The rapture, which made my mind race,

The ecstasy, which elated my heart,

Was all, short, indeed very short lived…


The dejection, that unfurled all around,

The melancholy, that filled the air,

And that yearn for the moment before,

Mortified my soul, spilling tears all around…

    The good thing is, the hourglass can be turned and the dejection short lived too 🙂 I guess that is life. Lovely poem 🙂
