Beyond Words

By Ashok Suri


Words spoken are sweet,

Those unspoken may be sweeter.

My lips often fumble

With thoughts that run deeper.

.

O, beauties of the Earth,

Mysteries of the universe,

Whose hands are at work!

How I will express?

.

How will I describe

Tears of joy flowing from the champion’s eyes,

Hunger of the hapless child,

Whose mother pats his back when he cries?
.

There are depths,

Where words cannot peep.

A soft touch, a tender look

Can make even a stone weep!
