Now, this is my thursday poem.I hope you ‘ll love  it.


Despite counting sheep

I was unable to sleep .

I lay  restless in my bed

With too much in my head .

The window was ajar

And I could  see from afar

High up in the sky

A lonely  twinkling star

I thought The  star left  its  galaxy

To keep me  close company.

To show me  its beautiful sight

On my lonely  sleepless nights.

My starlight  delight

Lasted a full   month .

Then    on  a  dark dreary   night

I had a quick scout around

Hoping To spot my star’s light

Alas! The star was nowhere to be found.

The sky looked completely dim

And my room was utterly grim

Did  the star fade away?

Or did it go astray ?

I  could n’t  really say .

I went back to my bed

To face a lonely night  ahead.

With a mind in complete disarray

And a  heart filled with dismay.


For nomination , I ‘ve chosen megzone , a talented poet in Hindi and English .Good luck to her .
