an ode to movies

In loving memory of Yash Chopra, an ode to movies.

Curtains roll with a muted silence
the drama unveils before the world.
Your quest to hide, thus begin
camouflaging the reality around! 

To explore the emotions, I was born
not the esoteric, but you.
Conceived, contemplated by a mass
who seldom speak of this mundane life! 

Tears, laughter and cheer
its bliss to see you sway.
Rejoicing my birth, you dance
fervent admirers of art! 

Fuelled by your verve, I breathe
in your thoughts I live.
I am your soul, your reflection
your incarnation, I am YOU!

What a soulful tribute!

Loved these lines, infact the third and fourth verse but somehow these lines stand out.

"Tears, laughter and cheer
its bliss to see you sway."
