When you are down and want to lay low.
When your charming face is devoid of the natural glow.
When you sense the whole world to be turning against you.
And things that interest you are suddenly few.
When you feel that you’re almost done with life.
And that there’s no purpose for which you should strive.
When the smell of the morning coffee no longer interests you.
When the aroma of the tasty lunch has nothing to do with you.
When you imagine people around to be giving an arrogant stare.
Filled with jealousy and scooped by an evil glare.
That’s when you feel that you can never get up.
And almost make plans to unconditionally give up.
But the next morning after sleep, there’s someone whom you meet.
We know that Heaven lies under her feet.
She’s your Mom who nods and grins.
And stays by your side through thick and thin.
She changed your diapers when you could barely walk.
And had best conversations with you when you could hardly talk.
Again after school, you meet someone sipping tea.
To the Doors of Heaven, he is the key.
He’s your Dad who taught you how to walk.
And shoo’ed away the dog who used to occasionally bark.
Every single time, he believed in you.
Looked in your eyes and said, ‘Son, I trust you’.
When you are in the company of these wonderful people.
You feel more confident about not to stumble.
Their belief in you lightens up your mood.
And makes you understand that there is still good.
Just when you were about to simply quit,
They make you realize that life is a valuable gift.
It’s a treasure and not any waste.
And its decisions shouldn’t be made in haste.
That’s when the natural glow comes back to your face.
And you stand up to take life’s challenges in any case.
Remember, when you were down and feeling sad,
You had your Mom and your Dad.
