Wearing a pensive look, she met me by chance
I instantly fell in love with her by chance
But love was returned with utmost indifference
My sensitive heart got wounded by chance
One failure after the other makes you depressed
Then all of a sudden success crowns you by chance
People are not that lucky to get love in life
But the crowning glory for a child occurs by chance
Wealth and education are difficult to obtain
One hits a jackpot simply by chance.
Sincere friendship is like a flower of ice
One is blessed with this divine gift by chance
Patience , hard work and perseverance
Can catapult you to your goal only by chance.
