An Optimist’s Diary

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When your whole world seems to come to a stand-still,
Remember that every storm has its shore
Every problem has an open door…

The world is what you see it as,
Joys and sorrows each one has…
When you are surrounded by darkness to the core,
You will always find an open door…

They say every cloud has a silver lining,
Each day can be made bright and shining;
The key is to bring hope and optimism to the fore,
The key is to recognize the One open door…

The Only One….


She came up to me, and flashed her brilliant smile,
I stood there rooted, looking at her for a while…
Her pretty eyes seemed to ask me a question,
What was on my mind, I could not then mention…
Time seemed to halt, when she started talking,
Slowly towards the gate, did we start walking.
The very presence of her, took me to a different world…
Where pain and sorrow were all unheard.
Her deep voice sounded like music to my ear,
Why does my heart beat so much when she is near?
We slowly reached the exit, I pushed the gate ajar,
I was so close to her, and yet so very far…
It was finally time for us to part ways,
A final smile accentuated her glowing face. 🙂
