Droplets of life

These droplets of life are born every moment
They give us memories for long to cherish
Moments that go on to become a life’s event
A unique opportunity to start over and accomplish,

These droplets keep falling, till there is no more
It’s all up to us to make it worthy now or never
when all they do is stop falling, we always ask for more
A second chance, a few more drops, once more

These droplets are devoid of color and odor
We paint them all with our effort and values
Never leaving chance to wait at our door
We drink each drop to the fill of our hearts

And when these drops stop falling for someone close
Grief stricken, we always stand beside and mourn
While we should bid them farewell with an applause
For they have lived a life worthy of a standing ovation
