Tears of the War--By Dr. Upma A. Sharma--India

Tears of the War

In pure love entwined,
The knittings of a mother.
Through icy cold winds,
Embrace child's subtle being,
As warmth shows on rosy cheeks.

Tears flow silently.
Pride digs deep into the heart.
Dare you defy grief.
Bravery etched in gold.
Mortals are now immortal.

To lifetime's essence,
Memories freeze in aeon,
Stay alive in epoch.
Interim generations,
Can needles of the clock rewind?

Passion for poetry can enthuse anyone, Dr. Upma A. Sharma has proved this so well. A doctor by profession, she finds time from her busy schedule to satiate her appetite for words, words that rhyme with her heart. She feels that nothing in this world happens without a reason and so is poetry. A purposeful expression of emotions and thoughts, positive words certainly are a way to serenity.
