Tears Of Joy
Times when our hearts are drenched with glow
by Saheb Mohapatra
And when they lift their feet to dance,
Some tears then arrive and show
The seas of success on our face.
Times when from the fields of our mind,
Are threshed our ripe wishes,
Some tears are such which then bind
And adorn them with true kisses.
Times when our dolor gets new wings
And flies in soul’s open sky,
The song of peace some tears then sing
And soothe the wailing eye.
I know these tears, the tears of joy,
Will one day clasp our calls,
Nor as we think it would annoy
But paint our barren souls.
