Don't Lose The Tender Touch

Don't lose the tender touch,
My friend.

I know life is unfair
I know you've known despair.
Life hurts and haunts and
Kills your joy
It messes and snatches
Your favorite toy
But like a stringent parent
It only means to teach
Lessons in love and truth
In bliss beyond our reach
You have it in you
It'll always remain
Don't lose the tender touch, 
My friend.

I remember the day
When you'd relentlessly pray
That when you woke up
Your love had come back
You opened your eyes up to pain
Reality seemed like a devilish trap
Not trap, 'twas but a test
With no wrong or right.
Go ahead, don't fear
Win the test of life
Love flows through you
It has no end
Don't lose the tender touch
My friend

Each failure, each step taken wrong
Is His attempt, in making us strong
Remove the facade
Let love touch you
The world is waiting
Kiss the brightest hue
I know a door has closed forever
But don't you hear the knocks on others?
Flash your brightest smile, 
Wear your heart on your sleeve
It won't break, don't fear
To many out there, you're precious and dear
Feel, and breathe and
Preserve the essence
And never ever lose the tender touch, 
My friend.

To all those who feel life has been unfair, this is my plea. Stop for a second, and count your blessings. You will never know how fortunate you are till you see another one survives on less than half of what you have been bestowed with. Gandhiji's Talisman has a relevance in our world. Consider yourself fortunate if you can touch someone's life and make him smile. Extend the horizon's of your life to accommodate those many people who love you, who want to be loved by you. Flash your warmest smile to them, and give them an unexpected hug, a careful kiss. Make them believe you'll be there even if you fear otherwise. Don't cage all that love inside you. Let it flow around, let it touch lives. If you've been hurt, you would know how feels. Being hurt should empower you for protecting someone else from hurt, for applying balm an someone else's wounds. Live and love. Its only one life which all get, dear friend.

A picture is worth a thousand words
