I was a droplet of water living in the sea, Frolicking through the waves passing me, Blushing at the cold breeze that scuttle away, Giggling every time it touches me. I swam with the fishes and jumped with the dolphins, Plunging myself deeper into the sea, But every time, the waters pushed me back, Murmuring, about my destiny. I was the smallest it seems, the lightest in the team, So they said I was not meant for the deep, But for the sky, I was told to fly And was destined to reach new heights. Confused was I and wondering why, Was I treated so very differently? For I too was a droplet, a water droplet, Then why was I meant for the sky? Confused and in pain, I looked up in vain To be astound by my new sight, There was this blue space, spread in my gaze, Bigger than anything I saw my whole life. From the corner of my sight, something bright caught my eye And I saw him there for the first time, My yellow ball of fire, shining brightly as ever, Filling me with feelings of love and desire. I forgot my world, the confusion and the hurt, Only he stood bright in my eyes, For the very first time, I felt this was a sign, And wanted to make him all mine. As an answer to my prayers, I was engulfed in heat layers, And suddenly I felt being light, I was rising from the waters, to where my heart desires, I was changing my form to pure white. I was closer to him now, flying in this new form, I could just gape at him all the while, I gawked at him from very close by, And waited for him during the nights. But all of these feelings were mine alone, For he never noticed me at all, I did all I could that any loving soul would But he was busy ignoring me besides. Gloomy I became and sad in pain, Anger filled my inside, My pure white manes where now turning grey For the agony growing inside. My limits were reached, ENOUGH! I screeched, I shouted at him with all my might, My thunders and lightning caught his attention And I saw him astound for the first time. With a cold gaze he gave me, he rejected me bluntly, And I stood there blankly in fright. I changed my form, and did everything for him alone, And now he dejected me without a thought. I wasted my life; I wanted to be his wife, But he pushed me away without a sigh, I exploded in pain, and my tears flew as rain, Till I became a memory in time.
