Words fail to express
What I feel,
My heart would race
Just to get a glimpse of your face,
For hours I would dream
And thy thoughts caress…
The fall of curl on eyes,
The sultry style, the sweet smile –
Would keep me awake all night.
The tilt of hat, the tip toe step,
The moonwalk that set the stage ablaze,
The quick spin and quivering voice
Left me with no choice
But to fall in love with you…
Though the world may call me a fool
I know my love is true!
Now it hurts to see your feet at rest
And as you lay motionless,
To another realm your soul transcend,
Waiting with your arms stretched
To take me with you, beyond life and death…
At the break of dawn
I wake up to your song,
Across my reach you stand –
Only to disappear like the mirage on sand;
My eyes moisten at the forlorn attempt
My bubble hopes burst, my heart saddened
To lose you; and just when I think this is the end,
I feel entrapped and surrounded
By a musical maze…
My sight haze
To find myself in this strange place,
Is that you I see at a distance
With your wings wide spread?
Encircled by “Kings on the throne”,
Have you found your real home
In this heavenly abode?
Have you found your childhood
And your long lost youth?
As you pour melody from your lyre,
The heart’s abyss swells with deep desire
To be swept by your tune forever and ever…
My head feels dizzy,
As I’m drunk to the lees
With your mysticalw power
So I lay me down to sweet slumber;
And now I can sleep and sleep indeed –
As I know you are resting in peace
In God’s safe arms,
Where nothing can touch you, no one can harm.
Like this desolate night dense,
You shall remain in me in silence;
My life, sorrows and dreams intense –
You shall forever entice with your magic spell
And fill me with your songs sweet and fresh!
