It may stay only for a while

Came to me humble and silent,
And I gave a loving glance.
Sighing loudly, I smiled at it,
As It may stay only for a while.
Precious is it to my eyes,
For it lifts me high with joy.
I love it when it comes to me,
But I let go of and wait again.
It’s a pain killer better than any pill,
Has the capacity to wake the dead.
As the responsibilities pile up,
I start counting the days now and then.
I can see it but not touch,
As it has to be given away.
So I waited for whole ten minutes,
And started to pay my bills.
