Animated

by Shreya

A drop of a thought of you brightens my day –

Reminiscing the time spent with you

cheers me up even when you’re far away.

It’s true that times are difficult and stakes are high

but my life is so animated, now that I know you

because the ghosts in my dreams have been replaced

by pirate rabbits, penguins, and cats.
