Lonely Lampost by the Street

Share


Guiding every wanderer,

Standing every night,

Staring every wanderer,

Showing every path,

Keeping every secret,

Silently, silently, and silently

Stories of the newfound lovers,

Aching heart of a mother,

Burdensome heart of an old man,

Stressful heart of a man,

Frighten heart of a thief,

Panic heart of a woman,

Carefree laughter of the teenagers,

Joyful and curious heart of kids,

Oh! lonely lamppost -

You never denied your light

You never denied your light

To any wanderer of any-

Religion, caste, community, and nationality.

You never compare

Gender, rich, poor,

Failure, and successful,

Lonely or joyful;

And, that is the reason why -

Every night when I see you,

I try to become more and more you.

I try to become more and more you.
