Little boy of age nine,
Loved his mother so,
One day she bought him some paint,
They thought he was the next picaso,

He painted a beautiful painting,
One of a flower in a garden green.
It was the best painting anyone had ever seen,

So they framed it and hung it on a wall,
Which made him feel ten feet tall,
The picture looked like famous art,
She held it close to her heart,

It was placed where his mother worked,
In a rented apartment to start,
Years went by,

The boy became a handsome man,
The painting was long forgotten,
No one knew where it would end,

In his mothers footsteps,
The son whose mothers shoes he was filling,
Became the manager of the same apartment building,

Years went by,
One day he was showing a apartment to a family,
As they came into the room their eyes looked upon the wall,amazingly

After all these years, the painting was still there,
Some one had cleaned it and took care,
The boy took the painting down,

It was a treasure of his past found,
As he carried it home to his own family,
He remembered the day of his beautiful creativity,

So now the beautiful picture of a flower with green,
Hangs still on a wall with love in between,
All the color, all the paint, all the memories
Of a little boy with big dreams ,

Like the painting so touching and strong,
The little boy had finally placed it where it belonged,

As the painting,
So was his love everlasting,

For love is a treasure upon a hearts wall,
And if you take care of it,

Years will come and go,
But the painting of love it will always hold.
Within every painting there is a story to be told!

(was inspired by a close friend)

Life is a painting,
Many have a look,
Few actually wait to admire!!!


Great words from you, O Romantic Heart,

Keep on with it,

regards,
sudhir.

 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

Fair maid  thy talent and beauty

I kneel before thee and pay thee honor
for truly worthy are thee
