Sometimes all you need to do is

Stay back, and let it all pass.

To sit awhile, and let it all pass.


Sometimes all you need to do is

Let the blood drain away to your toes.

To let the air be sucked out till your ears.


Sometimes all you need to do is

To close your eyes, and not talk.

To just lie down and not walk.


Sometimes, all you need to do is

Let it all go,

To let it all be in the past.


Sometimes all you need to do is

Turn the page of the book.

To end the chapter.

To close the book.

To just forget everything.

And start afresh.

To let it all be and have faith.

To try and smile and have faith.

To simply believe and let it be.

Sometimes all you need to do is

Simply do nothing.

  2. Lovely lines Moushmi.. Are you okay? Spend time with your loved ones to heal from inside out. It all takes time. Sorry honey, not been with you. Going through some stuff so barely hanging on.
