When I was five,
I went running to Mom;
Complaining and whining
I don’t have enough friends.
That was exactly when
Mom introduced me to the enchanting world of books;
With the first tender handshake,
Books have been my most persistent companions till date.
I grew up with magical fairy tales
Till poetry lured me with its captivating verses;
Within novels and short stories
I found my secret, small paradise.
The aroma of books
Reminded me I am never alone;
Cute and funny fictitious beings
Ensured my day never end without smiles and laughter.
I left myself a little
In every book that I read;
During times of adversity
They came back to me as my loyal savior.
Books made me wiser
And made life a lot easier;
For me, a life without books
Is no less than a body without soul.
Happy World Book Day to all the bibliophiles out there!
