Live or Leave

Live or Leave

I have to leave.
I have to leave them, who mean the world to me.
The quivering feelings and teary eyes,
The fleeting thought of how to survive!

I see the world swirl around
with the same pace, with the same chase.
Here, the ice palace is melting in rain.

My feelings are steady and wisdom rises.
It’s okay to live or okay to leave.
The karma vibration has to cease.

My call will come. I may hesitate,
But my dearest says, “I will be fine,”
Assures me the rest will be fine.

In the tree of my life, the buds had bloomed
and fragrance had loomed.
This flower did bear the fruits to share.

The work is done.
In peaceful lull my life succumbs.

I may be singing this song after many years. A poet’s compassionate imagination.

A White Baloon

A White Balloon

 Mama loves her little one with all her heart,
She looks through her tears as their world falls apart.
The girl with a smile says, “Mama! Let’s get toys,
I want to share with the girls and the boys.”

Mama wipes her tears and holds her tight,
She thinks for a while and tries to explain.
“O, my darling! Times are tough,
We cannot afford to buy new stuff.”

 Her bright hazel eyes are puzzled, perplexed,
“All I want is my very own balloon.
Please, mama, please get a big white balloon.”

The little girl plays with the big white balloon.
She tosses away her mama’s gloom.
Her free-floating laughter sails, gliding on the balloon,
A dream of this youth is flying to the moon.
