For Best Things Are Free

For Best Things Are Free

A Poem by Shalini Dinesh (Poet's World)




We march forwards towards a new dawn,

Where things are old, but yet a new!

Numbers are what makes a change,

For the rising sun, the twinkling stars,

The floating clouds, and all you think,

Are same, and just the very same!

Years older are we, for it wrinkles the skin,

And not our precious heart, the one within!

Shredding behind those hurtful thoughts,

Paving way for the fresh forgiving mind,

A chance to live another day! The gift of today,

Kindle the love, for best things are free!

The gift from above is showered upon,

Upon our wondrous earth we live,

A new day, a new year, is all that’s given!

Blessed are we, for we see 2013!!

A beautiful and powerful poem. I like the hope for good things to happen in 2013. I believe this year 2013 is important. We (Government) will change direction for good or worst? I agree best gift is love and kindness. Thank you for the excellent poem.

What a light-hearted write. I too hope 2013 delivers upon mankind fewer burdens. We all deserve a break I think.

Ohhh that's lovely, truly is, full of truths and hopes, blessings and more. You obviously feel every word. Great lines, ' Numbers are what makes a change, ~ For the rising sun, the twinkling stars, ~ The floating clouds, and all you think,~ Are same, and just the very same!'

Tis true.. we move into another year, another number yet so much remains the same. Many thank yous for writing what is like an anthem for the coming year! xx
