Leave the bitter memories behind,
Learn to let hard feelings go.
Forgive and forget is not as hard
as it is to keep bitterness in store.
Sometimes what we see is just an illusion
so try to avoid falling in the trap.
Remember better times are still ahead
and this phase too shall soon pass.
Absorb the goodness of the festival,
soak in the warmth of earthen lamps.
Open your eyes to bright dreams,
taste the flavor of brand new start.
The evil in us is not as strong
as the goodness of our pure soul.
And so this festival let you and me
get drenched in love to the very core.
A very happy Diwali to all of you!!
