I promise you. . . . . .

July 22, 2006

A thousand promises
for you I hold,
each as pure as
the first drop of dew,
love me once,
and a deeper meaning
of love,
I’ll reveal to you.
I’ll be the picture
that you’ll paint
Of love,
on the twilight skies
I’ll be your soul,
I’ll be the vision,
Of hopes and dreams,
in your eyes.
And if there be,
a darkness to your life,
I’ll be the warmth,
of the morning ray,
I’ll be the comfort,
that you’ll return to
At the end of,
a long weary day.
And I promise you,
that I’ll love you,
The way you have
never been loved before.
And with each day,
that you love me,
You’ll know,
that I love you even more

Yet another leaf

July 22, 2006

I look up at the stars, night after night;
Twinkling brightly in the dark sky,
And think of the million years,
Those have silently passed by.
Since they first shone,
Nothings ever been the same.
Thousands have gone,
From thousands who came.
Faces who smiled,
And faces who cried,
Souls who came to live,
And unknown, alone died.
I wonder why am I here
To my life, is there a reason…
I know, I am just another leaf
In yet another passing season.
I see only questions here,
Thrown up new by each new day,
Some perched like milestones
Others, just pebbles on the way
How do I matter? Do I count?
Is there a destination, near or far?
When I look up at night, I hope
To find the answers behind a star.

Yesterday

July 22, 2006

Yesterday I woke up with a smile,
And I hadn’t done that in quite a while,
Scolded the mirror for being a cheat,
When I saw your face and skipped a beat,
I told the day, ‘you are great’
‘Come let’s write a story for my fate’.
Walked into the sun and grinned at the sky
Knew how it felt to be soaring high,
Walked at a distance above the ground
Guarded a secret I knew I had found
Touched a flower on my way out,
Knowing, you would bring spring without a doubt
Out in the sun, I waited for long,
Strained my ears to hear your song
Fell over myself to catch your words,
Before they flew away like stray birds
I waited past the sun’s drowning hour,
Till the darkness could descend no lower
Waited for warmth to come my way,
For the time to come when there’s lots to say
The rains came down, colder that night
I waited for them to put everything right.
But the storm came to carry you away,
And there was nothing that either could say
The black that lasted was longer than ever
Light seemed infinitely farther
All I knew was, truth had to be shed,
A wish had to be killed; a heart had to be bled
A desire had to be rested in a grave
A façade had to be donned that was brave
An age had to pass before winter weaned
Time had to stop, before the ice thinned
An infinite second to go before I smiled again,
A reason for the sky to cry tears of rain

As I stand alone……..

July 22, 2006

Standing in the middle of a happy crowd,
With music, talk and laughter around,
I hear no song, no words, no sound,
All are drowned in a silence so loud.

A silence that speaks only to me
The silence that follows loneliness
As I stumble through life’s madness
Loneliness, constantly keeps me company.

Even when soaked in warm sun rays
I feel a cold shadow creeping over me
A feeling from which I cannot flee,
I know ahead only a long lonely road lays.

I need someone to call my own ,
To talk to me softly , lovingly ,
To listen to me selflessly , quietly ,
To tell me tenderly, “you are not alone”.
