Writings Submitted by Visitors of APNA Web




It was nothing but my tear

Who put the time in gear

Quenched in the day

By shown mystic fear

But, over flown at night

Like the fane of bear !

And, for breaking my alone

At least gloom was to cheer

The reason for this tear

Was a word of my dear

Who is far away like Sun

Who was extremely near !
