Info

I knew a man who loved the lillies that grew in the wild woods,
Every now and then he would walk miles to go into the forest to have a look at them.
He dreamt of holding them in his hand,watching them bloom,
He would feel that once he will have those lillies in his hand and he would take care of them and never let them wither.
He prayed hard to possess them and adorn his beautiful home.
He felt the lillies were there just for him and he would be the best one taking care of them.

He believed that the ones who call these beautiful flowers 'flowers of death' have never paused to see its beauty.
For him this flower was his source of joy.
He found his solace in them and felt at peace seeing these beautiful white ones sway.

He brought a tiny one and planted in his garden,
Every day he would water it and wait to see it grow.
He wanted to touch the first bloom and waited for them patiently.
He danced in joy when he saw the buds blooming beautifully
He felt like a winner and wanted to adorn his room with them.

He brought a few and kept it in the vase and admired the beauty of them
He felt they were the most amazing thing on Earth and sat down watching them.
Days passed by and it was his routine to get them and keep them in the vase.
He now hardly gets time to watch them or admire their beauty.
He hurries out sometimes forgetting to water the plant.
He flaunts the lillies whenever he has guests but often  forgets to find solace watching them.
He now has a gardener who manages his work and he enjoys the fruit of his labour.
He now feels that those lillies are a common sight for him to watch every day.
He now misses to look out for the new little buds ready to bloom.

The lillies that grew in the wild charmed him and his only wish was to have them
The hand that once took care of them now cannot remember the last time it held them.
The eyes that once sparkled with joy now feels the presence of them as ordinary.
The heart that once pined for them feels that his desire has been granted
And the wish that once felt like a dream seemed pretty attainable .
