It only takes...


It only takes…

A selfless act of kindness,
Lending a helping hand…
…To bring a soulful smile across the wrinkles,
Of a betrayed lonesome tramp.

It only takes…

A reckless moment of madness,
Insane portrayal of anger…
…To shatter the dreams of an innocent,
By the pull of the deadly trigger.

It only takes…

A sincere and heartfelt ‘Yes’
Expressed by a fondly loved…
…To make the world seem magical,
For the ecstatic lover, who had jus proposed.

It only takes…

A flashback of stirring memories,
Reminiscence of the past,
…To evoke bitter-sweet emotions,
Of a relationship that did not last.

It only takes…

A forgiving teddy-embrace,
Warm, loving and tender…
…To get back the sparkle in the teary eyes,
Of the child who jus owned up his err.

It only takes…

A hasty squabble,
Battle of egos and wits.
…To distance relationships,
And unintentionally wound hearts.


It only takes…

A few moments of merriment,
Some time off from the daily humdrum…
…To make her feel special,
Ever caring Grand-mum.


It only takes…

An instance of weakness,
Momentary blindness of what is right.
…To opt to go the wrong way,
And let be misguided.

It only takes…

A simple sweet smile,
Served with wholehearted generosity,
…To create a lasting first impression,
Rather than sinking into anonymity.

It only takes…

Earnest enchanting desires,
Fantasies and wishful dreams.
…To make life beautiful,
Decorated with glitter and gleam…!
