Like a scarlet leaf caught on the east wind
I loitered aimlessly, wherever the life took me
Before I could touch the ground, you came
Came in like a hurricane and blew me away
Away with you, to the skies,
Skies, where I thought I didn’t belong
My illusion faded to reality
As I stood holding your hands
I got lost in your eyes,
drowned in your gaze
Just to find myself.
On this special day, I confess
I confess that I am yours, every bit of me
And I promise, you will be mine
As long as you want
Hold my hands and walk with me
Let the void swallow us
Let us drown to the place we want to be
Let us drown in tomorrow
I shall be telling this with a smile
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood and I –
I took the road less taken,
Or I took the one most taken
It makes no difference whatsoever
In the grand scale of things,
Not the road, but YOU matter.
To read the original poem, go here.
Starlit nights and moon beneath skies
The mild breeze and ever stretching seas
The bright sunny day when little birds play
The icebergs that look like foam
I’m greateful for the Earth we call home.
It’s my thoughts, my emotions
My life, diligently painted
Dot by dot
I put the brush away, and stared
As everything fell into a single line
My past, present and future
I carefully hung it in the wall
And I stepped in
Into my magical world. Adieu!
we know when
the bees buzz back to hives,
the breeze becomes cold,
the chaotic world pauses,
blushing red sun hides
behind the horizon.
