Who Am I?

Who Am I?

written by: Dr. Shalini Yadav


An open sky
And round earth I’m.

A tree’s shade
And heat of sun I’m.

A radiant dawn
And deific dusk I’m.

A day’s clamour
And night’s peace I’m.

A thread of affection
And love’s warmth I’m.

A ray of daylight
And moonlit I’m.

A tiny heart throb
And veins’ blood I’m.

A twinge in heart
And possible cure I’m.

A fascinating rose
And its fragrance I’m.

A soil’s particle
And entire aura I’m.

An embraced hope
And spread arms I’m.

A vast ocean
And a longing river I’m.

A man’s mate
Above that a woman I’m.

A life giver
And life’s mother I’m.
