Love and Eternity

Tree asked the little bird to go to sleep
As it feared that the bird might fly away...
never to come back again.
But the little bird said,
‘My dear tree, forget sleep, I won’t even close my eyes,
for I can’t afford to lose sight of you...
not even for fraction of a second.’

hugely touched, kalpana ... isn't this what we do to our loved ones? Ask them to 'sleep' so that they won't fly away ...

birds fly away but they return to roost, each evening they come back. the tree is always there to receive them when they come back

there is music in your lines.

True Venuji....that is what we often forget that every evening the bird has to come back..... :-)
