The mute little boy

Walking down the streets, I met a little boy
So sweet and ingenuous in his own way,
Playfully loitering around with full of gay
As I stopped him to ask him about the road,
He just waved and showed that way that way
I was puzzled why can't he utter and just say
And I got angry as I was getting late for the day
Said him to continue in his world of play
Then, a lady passed by saying he can't speak and tell
I was amazed at the mute little boy,
For he still smiled without sadness on his face
Had I not met him I would have never learnt
To put up a smile even when things go awry
For silence speaks volumes, 
Where words fail to say!!!
