FLEETING GLORY

You came stealthily

Like the rays of the morning sun;

Without any pretensions

Of conquering the world!

Yet, slowly but steadily

In your own, unassuming ways,

You overwhelmed me;

Like the morning rays

Engulf the world.

And then,

Akin to the morning rays

You withdrew, stealthily,

Slowly, but surely.

Perhaps it was silly of me

To hold them;

For morning rays belong to all,

Whoever bothers to care?

To own the morning rays

Let no one dare!

True to your words, you are not

What you appear to be;

You came stealthily,

Like the morning rays;

And left equally stealthily.

Leaving darkness behind.

And that is in your own words,

As you always are;

Morning rays will remain so,

Always, forever.
