The newly painted wall

The pleasant smell of  fresh paint

The bright colors; the  warm curtains 

Framed to perfection

The picture!

Filled with joy; full of smiles!

One happy family!

But life is no snapshot!

A raging river it is !

Swept away by  its  turbulent currents

A sudden twist it was !

Torn apart by its bare elements

Through the rapids of  prolonged uncertainty

And the torrent of  unforeseen death

Emerging one less

 Love lost; a  family shattered!

Alas now ! Back home !

The walls and curtains are the same

A lot has changed since!

Now left alone in my couch of misery

Life relentlessly flows on !

But the  picture still perfect; stands  still and silent !
