Water: A Gift

By: Shahzeb Khan

Water is truly important,
Arrives from a source distant,
Every year we have monsoon showers,
Which bring to life, attractive flowers,
All of us need water for our health,
Whether or not we possess any wealth,
Children anticipate jumping in the pool,
Especially on hot days in school,
Next to our cities rivers flow,
Dripping from the mountains’ melting snow,
Gurgling water gushes in blue streams,
Reflecting the picturesque view about which one dreams,
You fill colors into spaces grey,
It is it for you that I pray!
