    Dear friends

    I am sending herewith a poem written by my brother long back

    That day i was on the cricket field
    with the cricket bat as my shield
    To play for the college team
    to make it a champion team

    We played as a team with vigour
    we made little runs hour after hour
    All at once many a wicket fell
    till the Captain and I were together well

    The Captain looked every ball
    I defended without afall
    My Captain drove, I ran for runs
    My Captain glanced , there were four runs

    I made a striking century
    Our team snatched the great trophy
    Our Captain got all the fame
    for his was a glorious game

    We carried the trophy through the street
    with full of smiles on the street
    Suddenly i saw our intimate fiend
    standing on the other side of the road

    Ran I to meet him with terrible speed
    on with the boots fully nailed
    Alas my boots slipped , I fell down
    a car passing by knocked me still down

    Shouted a shriek and woke up
    Only to find it was all a dream

    Fears I have now that I may cease to be
    Fears that from life's field I have to flee
    Therefore pray I, for no century on the cricket field
    only to celebrate a century on the life's field

    For youth is pleasure, I have still to taste
    And death is its end, I need not in haste

    IF U HAVE ANY HEART SHARE IT WITH YOUR FRIEND
