stand up i say!

called up my rickshaw guy
wanted him to pick me up
so that i can go somewhere

i asked him "how are you doing"
he says "oh great couldnt be better".

he asked me "how are you doing "
i said "fine, can you pick me up today"

he said "oh, my vehicle is on repairs since last night
i am sorry, really sorry, wont be able to pick you up"

i said "that is alright, thank you very much"
he asks cheerfully "i am at home now, having my lunch
have you had your lunch?"

my face brightens up and i say
"not yet, but in a while i will" and we hang up

Something about this whole episode cheered me up once again
it is these little things in life and small steps we take once a while
which will makes all the difference i guess

The lows and the deppressions will try in vain
to pull me down
the tsunamis of pain and hurt will try again
to flood my heart

but in once a while,
the waves receed back
and the valleys brighten up

flowers blossom once again
fresh strawberries scatterred all along

anu picks them up happily
and starts walking once again..

You're so perceptive when you say that it's in these little things that there's so much comfort.

I hope you have a lovely weekend, Anu. You've brightened up my blogging experience... thank you.
