Oh Heart, why is it that you cry? - Javed Akhtar

• When clouds of pain loom in the sky..
   When a shadow of sadness flickers by..
   When a tear finds its way to the eye..
   When fear keeps the loneliness alive..
   I try and console my heart..
   Why is it that you cry..?

• This is only what life imparts
   These deep silences within
   Have been handed out to all by time
   Everyone’s story has a little sorrow
   Everyone’s share has a little sunshine

• No need for water in your eyes
   Every moment can be a new life
   Why do you let them pass you by..?
   Oh heart, why is it that you cry..? - Javed Akhtar
