That One Tear by Poonam Sharma

Candle still lights
Wind still blows.
Love between our hearts
Even now flows.

Blood in our veins
Has the same colour.
Same is the passion
Common our valour.

Love is all around
Faith still abounds
Then where’s the difference?
I think just one.

A storm of hatred
Has sweeped the air.
That was once pure
And happily did we share.

What’s now left
Is just one tear.
That has blurred eyes
And we can’t see clear.
