One summer you were on the top of the world Smiling with friends and family The sunlight shining bright from the glass pane You hung out by rivers, roamed around the light fests The air around buzzed with love and hippie songs played in the background
Another summer brought emptiness along The gloom and sickness thick in the air Previous bonds severed and no one to lean on Eyes always shining with tears, your heart thundering Nights spent sweating due to unbearable heat
The glad summer however was followed By a cold winter that shattered the joyous aura Just how after a painful summer Came through a snowy and festive winter
Thus concluded little Sarah That life has phases far too many and evolving Facsimile of how the world has seasons Cold and warm, dry and wet Life’s occasionally hard to bear But also easy to live with a smile every so often.
How foolish and mindless The move of a mortal Who wrecks his faithful family To fabricate happiness with strangers A true sense of his false perception Tragic fate then awaits his choices
The stranger shall extract their greedy motives Abandoning the mortal afterwards Mirroring his action Towards his blood sharing sacreds
Now as the mortal roams the earth alone For he has driven far away from home The time that went by painstalkingly slow for his family Shall not return for him to regret and repent A heavy price paid for spending the rest of his life in pitch loneliness
