Meaning of Life

Irom Calvin

Life has no definition
It is never the same,
How it is different,
Makes it unique,
For every living soul,
Renew  us, even if we do not reach it,
Into something else, which we hardly sensed,
We already are; a gesture waves upon us.
My eyes already touch the sunny  hills.
going  far ahead of the road I have begun.
So, we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
It has a inner light, even from distance.
The reason we are here today,
Is to dance with truth, joy and beauty,
To smile and to grow on with our lives
And make  friends  as  pleasure not as a duty.

People I loved,
Have come and gone,
But the world  never  stopped,
And we all carried on.
I stood on my own,
And still found  my own way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
Hoping for the dawn of a new beginning.
Memories are life’s special  moments
Borrowed  from  the  passing  of  time.
Ghosts and shadows from bygone days,
Etched and stored inside our mind.
To learn while still a child
What this life is meant  to be.
To know it goes beyond  myself,
It’s so much more than me.
