Hope

Here’s something I had composed a while ago. It’s not related to COVID-19 in anyway. I guess we all must be having an overdose of corona virus related news and write-ups. But if I decide to stretch this poem too have some connection with the current situation, it all can be summed up in the last two lines…Coz that’s what is keeping us afloat in this dark types. HOPE…

via Daily Prompt: Disastrous
How, why and when it happened I don’t know. It just did. Whole day today I tried my best not to think about it. Tried not to think of that beautiful rainy day, about that mere coincidence of random events but most importantly about you!
