A Tribute To My Readers

A Tribute To My Readers

A Poem by Saumya
"

A writer is incomplete without the readers, so this is a short tribute to you all....

"
My dear readers,
I'm grateful to you all,
for being here...

Each time i write a poem,
i earnestly wait,
wait for your reviews,
because, they tell me the depth,
to which my poems are true..!

I never thought,
that I'd write,
but there's a story
a story, behind it,
full of insight,
that makes one smile.
which I'd like
to share with y'all
tonight...

When I was a kid
of twelfth grade,
it was the day, i think,
third or fourth of May,
I remember the day,
I remember the date,
it was the Moral Science
class on 5th of May,
My teacher told us
to write something,
on the topic, `When I'll bid Adieu`
While others wrote
one or two lines,
I was there
with four lines..!
she checked everyone's writing,
by her keen mind,
and intense understanding..
And when she came to me,
and read those four lines,
the situation, i feel was truly divine!

I  know not
what she saw in
those lines,
she came to me,
and urged me,
to complete that poem
By May nine...
the next day, i did it,
and later,
it got published in our
first school magazine,
for the first time..!

Everyone who read,
appreciated it a lot,
and encouraged me
to continue this
great work of mine,
In the coming time.

but all that happened,
was because of Her
my lovely teacher
that time,
who fell in love
with those four lines!

yes, my dear readers,
I'd really love to tell,
that,
if i write well today,
its entire credit goes to her.!!

Then i came here,
and wrote more poems,
and the result i think,
y'all have in front of you!


My dear readers,
i really cherish your presence,
in reading and reviewing my writings,
and i cordially thank you, and wish,
that, in future, you will be even
more supporting.



if i am a poem, you are my words.!
if i am a book, you are the pages.!
So, i request you, to always be
with me,
in this race of chaste,
as a book is empty, without pages,
and a poem, useless, without
words and phrases..!!

This poem tells a lovely story. Your teacher was indeed correct in perceiving your talent. The greatest need we writers have is encouragement and sadly, it is the need left unfulfilled for the most part. I am glad you received this at a time in your life when you could actively pursue it. Let no one tell you to put it away, let no one it is time to learn something practical, it is time to make a living. I shelved my dreams forty years ago, and the talent that I did have seems feebler now. Run with your dream -- run like the wind.

thank you for the lovely review Vani:) glad you loved this write:)
you have so much meaning in your words.
Is sweet how this one goes out to all your readers.
I give you much respect for that.
I don't really like it much only because it doesn't really sound like a poem, and i prefer poems that rhyme more.
Although as for if i look at it like a story i do like it.
Great write though thank you for sharing.
Keep writing :)
