Catch the glint

Old sparks hardly glow
in today's faint embers.
A child's dreamy gasp
is now a 49 year wheeze.
A frayed dawn may come
with the morning mist
Yet whispers waft through
telling me not to let go,
Don't dare go out
into the night lightly.
Tonight, the Diwali lights
will bring back all the hopes.
Once again I will know
where I'll have to go, boldly,
where no pessimism goes.
I have to teach me, myself
to catch those sparks
which I once thought
were mere fireflies
but were actually glints in
someone's beautiful eyes
