Songs

I sat there singing her
Songs in the dark.

She said;
'I do not understand
The words'.

I said;
'There are
No words'.

    A cryptic note is well evident in this poem. It isn't what it seems!

    A song with no words. It must be a song never sung by man. Very philosophical poem

    Let this song be sung till eternity and fill the vast emptiness of this universe and let us enjoy its melody ever after. I am humbled.
