Looking out of the window,
I saw a cute little puppy,
Outside, a wondrous rainbow,
The darling was so happy.

Playing with tufts of grass,
Butterflies flying around,
Lovely, jolly little mass,
Lolling, going round and round.

Seemed not to be worried,
By the world around,
Did not appear at all hurried,
By the commotion all around.

Black clouds loomed ahead,
Heavy rainfall, thunder aloud,
Terrible screech of tyres, I heard,
Spattered all around was blood.

The happy puppy was no more,
Lying peacefully was a dead puppy,
Serenity lost, sadness felt even more,
As I queried, can't a puppy even be happy?

Reasoning and logic has lost its meaning,
Death follows even the best of men,
For all, the rule is the same and even,
All I wish is the puppy goes to heaven!

A tear left my eye, rolled from the cheek,
Sense of sadness, feeling of pain,
Truth slapped me on my other cheek,
Even the heaven cried and poured rain.




 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.

A Crazy Monster, a.k.a Ski

Ouch Sudhir  -----I am on my way to bed.
very tired  -- such a sad last poem
to read before retiring to my bedchamber,
where I shall, dream that tne negligent
owner of that puppy ----------gets hit
by a car -- and the puppy finds a sweet
little boy and they live happily ever after.


Well written poem ----------thanks for sharing - I am just persistent in happy
endings --)

Netswan,
I love happy endings too, but this is just another hard fact of life, is it not?

Denise,
It is sad, but ....

Thanks to the both of you!

regards, sudhir

You touched my heart with this one Sudhir ...  I see far too much of this sadness on country roads.  Beautifully written with caring sentiments.

Hey James, thanks once again...

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall
