On an eventful journey all alone
Met someone totally unknown.
He struck up a conversation to my utter distaste
And spoke and spoke and spoke
In absolute, hurried haste.
I tried my level best to keep pace
To reply and communicate
And to specifically understand and absorb
All that he said
But a meaningful conversation was hard to come by
He never gave me a chance to speak,
He spoke his heart out
With words came out his blood and tears
Not visible to the eyes around
And people busy with themselves as usual.
I knew that he was a loner
And wanted someone to hear
Wanted someone to talk to
Someone that would understand
Without giving him advice, lend a helping hand
And a patient ear too, to dump all his woes
I felt somehow privileged
That he was sharing with me all this and more.
He told me all that he loves
And all his pains
His triumphs, his sorrows, all his little big gains.
He wrapped the five hours
In a bittersweet story
While I lent a patient ear to all his happiness and worries
It wasn't much of a job for me, to be true
But he was at peace with his world,
After that discourse.......
