The wavering cloud

The wavering clouds
-------------------------
I had only known him for a few weeks,
We visited the places where he grew
In summerr, he said, we have heavy rain
And all our sufferings go into the drain

My mother will think a lot about you
What you eat and drink and your habits
She will love to sing with you
But will like to know what you really do

After all we can not eat the music
And can not live on the wisdom of your poems

He looked at me accusingly.
I smiled at his innocence.

We were now feeling cool after the hot day.
Now we were walked to the broad The Mall

I saw the luxurious cars in this world of consumers
And he saw the moon in his glaxy of stars

I want to live forever here where I grew
With my all the wisdom of sages for the ages
The Life of town never became my home

Kissing him last time I said,now go to your path
And find your destined solace
What we are doing here together
