The Lesson By The Nun

The Lesson By The Nun

2 mins 446 2 mins 446

It was a peaceful night

Moonlit sky was a heck of a sight

The two friends decided to go for a walk

They had their problems, and a lot to talk

They were worried about money and food

Oh how they thought, life was no good


As they were passing by an abandoned building

They suddenly felt a cold shivering

Startled, they looked at each other in fear

It was a sight they could not bear


Standing calmly was the ghost of a nun

They lost control and tried to run

But seeing her stand in peace,

They regained strength and stood with ease


She stared at them and uttered quietly

O dear souls, you two have a wonderful family

Still, you discuss issues that are materialistic

Oh, don’t you see the night today is so artistic

Rejoice and be thankful for what you have

Whether you have money or not is not the issue

Happiness is the real wealth, know only a few

This time is a gem that you will never have again


Look at me, all I ever did when alive was to complain

And here I am, mourning over the lost time

Oh what a habit I had, what a crime

Everything you have will be lost in a day

But family will be with you, come whatever may

Learn this lesson, o dear sons

Enjoy the dusk, enjoy the dawns


Enlightened, the friends shared a big smile

 They realized how life can change in just a while.
