a forgotten friend

I saw you the other day

As I walked down the lane

Was it of shock or delight I cannot say

The feeling of familiarity that came

I thought you were gone

Or at least they told me so

Should’ve known they were wrong

Should’ve known you wouldn’t go

Missed you when the day turned dark

And in the sky when the stars did spark

Missed you when the rain poured down

And the arch of the rainbow touched the ground

Remember the dreams we shared?

About princes and castles and fairytales

If I asked you to, would you still care?

And join me again as I sail

Along the flow of memories I left behind

And with them, you, my dear friend

I kept you out of my mind

I thought that was an end

But now I know you were there

With me in every laughter and pain

When I gave up in despair

You were the voice that said “try again”!

I live in a free world

Inside my mind

And float in the sea

Of words and rhyme

I paint my days

With colors of wine

And dance to the tune

Of the flowing time

With every song I sing, I create a symphony

And in every dream I see, I end an agony

In every breath, there’s harmony

And I live….

…with passion

Happy Potluck!!

 

MY ANGEL…

Take me with you my angel
To a place nobody knows,
Where the sea of hatred ends
And the river of love flows

Take me to your land
Where my soul resides,
Where fear loses its grip
And hope becomes my guide

Take me to the winds
Carry me along as you fly,
Let my wishes be my wings
And my dreams the never ending sky

Hold me my angel
And always do so,
Never leave me alone
Even when life lets me go

 

 

This is an old but a very special poem of mine…it is one of the first poems I wrote when I tried my hand at poetry around two years back 🙂

…….a long time ago…..

 

Born in the mountains

As a tiny stream I flow

Destined to meet you

Following the only path I know

Forcing against the currents

Of the winds that come and go

Hoping someday you’d join me

Among the lands high and low

I would then cease to be a stream

And into a lovely river I’d grow

As we reach the sea, we’d be one

Like we were, a long time ago

And carrying the wisdom of the sea

Towards the sky’s heavenly glow

We’d fly once again

Like we did, a long time ago….

 

 

This was written for the Poetry Potluck 🙂 Hope you all like it!!

I am…..a rose

I was buried deep into the ground

In the dirty wet mud

I was bitten by the bitter snow

As I started to bud

 

I kept quiet as you stepped on me

Or chose to ignore me

I sobbed quietly resting on the womb

Of the earth that bore me

 

I did not ask the rain why it hit me

I knew I needed it to grow

I just listened as you complained

That my growth was too slow

 

I built a barrier of thorns around me

From the wounds that no one saw

And here I stand today…a beautiful rose

As you watch me bloom, with awe!

 

 

a moment too late

The sun slowly died

As she watched the edge of the sea

Another day gone, another wish lost

Another reason to believe life is cruel as can be

The waves were risky, the shore safe

But there was no hope for the poor waif

The shore was not her home

She was alone

All she wanted was a ship to come and carry her on its deck and flee

Along the horizons, towards the sky, to the clouds, beyond the eyes could see

Another sunrise, another hope

No sign of the ship, only a boat

Offering her a ride she couldn’t deny

So for one last time she waved the shore goodbye

This was not what she wanted, but accepted it as her fate

Turning back to the shore now, she saw a ship, just a moment too late

once upon a night

Flickering shadows on the wall
A dim light from the street lamp
Tapping sound as the raindrops fall
Upon the soil, now oh so damp!

Visions flash through my mind
Of places from forgotten past
And the dreams that were left behind
And the moments that just went too fast!

Of knights and palaces, and swords and horses
Of ghosts and witches and magical forces
Of seas and stars and skies and sands
Of peaceful nights in faraway lands

My heart goes back to them again
In a state of complete tranquility
Not bound by reality and its pains
Not held back by threats of inability

My eyelids slowly cover my eyes
I’m floating in a free open space
And as my sense of reality dies
I leave this world without a trace….

………never apart……

The winds that blow through my hair

Must have surely touched you

The moon that stares at me tonight

Must be watching you too

These drizzling raindrops in the dark

That gently hit my face

Must have passed through your hands

Sometime, in some distant place

The flying pollens in the garden

Bring to me your fragrance

You must have seen them flying too

You must have felt their presence

The dreams that take me to you

Must have knocked on your heart

Tying us with a bond so strong

Like we were never apart…………..

wishes…..

Give me no dreams of the clouds

Hold me close, when I cry

Give me no promise of forever

Stay with me till I die

Bring no stars from up above

Be my light when it’s dark

Bring no colours from the sky

Paint me with the love in your heart

Throw me no clever lines

Stand by me, when it calls

Build no castles for me

Protect me from   downs and falls

Ride no horse, carry no sword

Come to me as you are

Climb no stairs, throw no pebbles

Meet me when hope seems far
