Open the windows wide
let the sunshine in.
Let the gentle breeze blow
fill up every corner.
Every corner of your heart
which you kept under restrain,
for all these years barring
light, air, happiness, laughter.
See, it was just like then
when love broke your heart!
The birds are singing sweet
flowers are blooming in vibrant hues.
Life does not changes for anyone
it treats death and life the same!
If you close your window darkness wins,
so don’t close it, let the light shine.
No matter how beautiful life is
how much gift it has showered!
If you don’t open your heart
those flowers will just wither in dark.
