Pain,despair worry,

I see on faces as I stepped into  the new city.

Children with hidden smiles,

Youth with lost dreams.

Disappearing into  a sea -like crowd.

Never did I know life was this hard,

As I paused and looked around.

Lady dragging a cart,

Child begging on the street,

and then the sun set,

Leading way to a magical night!

Mumbai in its glory,

Where everyone lived on in merry,

Where old dreams were yesterday’s worry,

City of maximum mystery.

I was hopelessly in love with.

I strolled along in a dreamer’s path,

As the night passed by.
