Some Other Day

By: Ashoo Malhotra

The parts of me

softly fading away 

every time I say 

some other time 

some other day 

 

the stories told 

the poetry wrote 

just those words

still left to say

for some other time

some other day 

 

the smiles spread 

the jokes cracked 

some tears I’ve

yet kept away 

for some other time

some other day 

 

the roses red 

the fragrance shed 

but hidden are some

shades of gray 

for some other time 

some other day 

 

I hope one day, to

a dandelion flower 

a shooting star 

I make a wish

heart un-squished

right then ... right away !!
