The Man & Magic !

MJ

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!

A Searching

Home of my own

I have been on the run,

For what it seems – forever,

I am searching –

Looking everywhere

For a home to call my own,

Where I can lay my head

In the warmth of your caress

For days, without fear,

Knowing that you care…

In the midst of laughter

Of loved ones long lost!

I have been searching –

For these little treasures,

A longing that never dies

Oh! I am so tired…

Looking and searching

Beyond the rights

Beyond the wrongs,

Where lines of hatred

Are blurred …

Just a realization prevails

Of death and loss,

Of pain and sorrow,

They belonged to them

They belonged to us;

A place remains

Where sweet peace

Is brought on the wings of wind

That belongs to them

And belongs to me,

Where the land is lush green

Not crimson from trampled lives…

A land where love there is still,

Out beyond the wires

That make hope bleed.

A home for you.

A home for me.

And for all humanity.

 

 

 

 

 

Four Little Steps

DSCN2230

You called my name

I heard from afar

I had searched yet never found –

Love that was the same

In the years gone by.

Sweet and untainted

Honest and uncomplicated…

You come near, I am drawn to you

The warmth of your breath

Melts with tears unrestrained

From these eyes in hopelessness;

We utter no sound

Yet, our silence is spoken aloud….

Desperate to break

The chains invisible.

No!  The steps that will take me to you

Your arms of tender love

I cannot take,

For lines between us are drawn by those

Who never knew the love

Between me and you.

For they are fools

To not know,

In our heart and veins

Run the color red – 

The color of love,

Power and endurance.

They are fools indeed, 

To never realize 

That love transcends all

And in the life after

Nothing can hold us

From taking the four little steps,

L.O.V.E;

From taking your hand in mine, 

And soaring in the sky

Above the blue seas

Chasing sunrise

Into the horizon;

No more bindings,

No tears or distance,

Only the glow of the day

And a million starry nights,

Sweet nothings, smiles so carefree,

A thousand little dreams,

And only you and me.

 

Hollow of my Heart

images

Years went by

Days slipped away

Hours tip toed slowly out

Minutes bid farewell

As seconds died a slow death.

Springs came by,

Summers burnt in fiery rage,

Rains soothed parched heart

Autumns wilted fresh wounds

Winters numbed the pain.

And yet,

They won’t fade…

Yearnings –

Of your touch,

To hear your loving call again,

To hold you in my arms,

To feel you near

To know you are safe,

Though so far away.

I know, yes, I know..

Nights will wane,

Dawn will be here once more

Many more springs, summers, rains and cold

Will come and go;

But memories of you

Will remain,

In the hollow of my heart,

Preserved with tender sweet love,

By the promise of tomorrow.

Little Heart

mural-1347673_960_720

A little heart, afraid to trust

The first steps on earth…

A little fear, an unknown flutter inside

Tiny wobbly unsure of touch

Little steps, one at a time

A small smile accepting

Touch of love

Jumping, running, tossing, turning,

Playful in its merry self

Oblivious to the unknown

A step was taken –

A step too long into the darkness

But soon the light shone..

The light of everlasting happiness

In the soft arms of tender love.

The little heart now drifted

Into tiny dreams

Smiling inwardly…

Sleeping tenderly,

No fear will ever touch

The little heart that feared.

 

 

 

A Waiting

waiting

 

The heart moved slow

Losing its beat,

A song of life

Accepting defeat,

The mind could not feel

The rhythm of its surroundings

Visions were blurred

But something far far away

Strained its strings…

A waiting for the last song

Touch of the known

Voice of someone close

What is it? Who was it?

The eyes could not tell

The ears never heard

A smile was not formed

By the curling of lips

Joy could not find voice

Nor was there a stir …

Only the soul felt the warmth

Of that known soul

Bound alone by the music of love,

Of faith & trust.

A little sign found its way –

An great effort was made

 To show happiness that was known

Someday, in a land too far away.

A ripple of soothing calm

Drowned all sorrows

No grief touched

Only a release from

The ties on earth;

A love was felt,

No pains remained – 

And yes, at last

A waiting will be no more…

At last amidst the heaven above

A home was found.

 

 

A Promise…

Gir Evening

In the fallen leaves

Of withering autumn

The winter chills

And gray so still

Cool summer breeze

Every new leaf

Flowers of spring

I SEE YOU…

In morning calmness

Quiet of the noon

Late night’s bright moon

In all things good,

All things seen

Flowing of a stream,

Burst of shower

I FEEL YOU …

In little cloudy faces

Blue skies on clear days,

Whispers of sea

Comfort of warm waves

Dying sun far away

Rolling lush of greens

Kiss of sweet mist

I MISS YOU …

Realm of earth

Can never hold back

All that is pure,

As some day in a wonderland –

Beyond known paths,

Reasons of trapped hearts,

All words unsaid,

I WILL MEET YOU …

Please hold on my friend

For my days have not waned,

No, not yet –

But I will be there, soon I know,

To see you

Love & hold,

And never to say adieu again.
