The path leads to you

There are a thousand love stories
Each with their own legends
Each making their own sound
Setting their own expressions

I heard them for a long time, 
and set out to find my own
To cast the lingering clouds of loneliness away
"Maybe," I thought, "I'll also have my dawn."

I scourged the deepest of caves
And climbed the highest of cliffs
Just to find an image that matches
the one that holds the life's gifts.

Then I realized the mistakes of my ways
What I was looking for was there all along
Right within me were you
In me where you always belong

I heard the thousand love stories
And tried finding meaning in them.
Not realizing I don't need to look there
My story is right within

You made me what I couldn't be
free of the fears of tomorrow.
And remember the quote I heard
that lovers don't finally meet somewhere;
they are in each other all along

My only hope

Sometimes I know I am a bit much
Sometimes I can lose sight
Of what there would be
Or what is my next fight

In a world full of lies
there's only one truth
That truth is only you
You and and only you sooth

Of what I know in this world
if not for your love
I would have fallen long ago
without your shadow above

Through my bones it's only you
and through my breath it's only you
For you are my destiny
for whom I do what I do

I am just words
The song you are
I am just a body
The soul you are

For all I know of me
for you will I bleed
And if the next breath is my last
it's you all I need

For all the despair in me
or at the end of my rope
It's only you I trust
You're my only hope

Our journey

The wind that has blown today
From the damnedest of places 
to heavens, we wait tomorrow,
while roll the drums of changes
sound better than yesterday's sorrow

Laid I in the filth of broken promises;
I ended up in your arms
And the wounds I licked,
healed through your charm

It's not the end of the road,
but a beginning of new beginnings
I'll hold your hands and walk again,
and cash my winnings

And even though I stand at the edge
of an uncertain future
I stand with you, unafraid of what may come
I stand here as your suitor

While we long for the safety in our destiny
There's a reason I took a risk and dove
At the end of the fall is our victory, and 
the journey is our love

We are not intolerant!

How dare you!? How dare you, Aamir? How dare you call Indians out? Who are you to tell us what we are, or how we think? How dare you call us intolerant, Aamir? I am outraged!

Before I go ahead with my rant against you, let me refer to what you said. You said you are alarmed and want to move out of India (or it was your wife, doesn’t matter). Then next day you said you stood by everything you said. What!? How can you say that? How dare you mention moving out of India?  How can you move out of India? India is a great country! India has a rich heritage and amazing culture. We are proud that we were born in India. We do everything to preserve our culture, our heritage, and our religion. We will go to any length to make sure our culture is preserved. You can see the evidence daily. We devote inane amount of time in temples and desecrate anything and anyone who doesn’t agree with our view point. We preserve what’s ‘ours’ and whatever isn’t, we leave it to the dogs.

And why do you call us intolerant? We are not intolerant! We just do what’s right. And we do what’s right because we know what’s right or wrong. I’ll give you an example. Eating beef is wrong! Plain and simple! Cow is the holiest of animals out there. How do I know that? Because that religious book of mine says so. The same book which also tells me that slaughtering another man on the name of honor is fine. The same book also teaches me polygamy and how righteous it is. We follow it to the T. Every single word of it! How dare you denounce my actions that are based on my religion? What I do is not intolerant behavior, just reaction to the wrong by fellow citizen.

Mr. Aamir Khan, we would not tolerate you blaming us of intolerance. You can pack your bags and go to any other country because our country will not support your opinion. Your opinion differs from our opinion of what intolerance is. You can go wherever you want to. Go to the US, or Canada, you know, where another half of our brethren resides. Some of my NRI friends posted their pictures eating hamburger the other day. It looked delicious! If I ever go there, I would like to… Anyway, Mr. Aamir Khan, please, please, please don’t tell us what we should do. We know our morals and values. We beat those people up that do not adhere to our values. Pick your fights wisely, Mr. Khan because you never know who or what might strike you someday.

(This is a tongue-in-cheek piece and should be taken as such. Or interpret it as you wish)

I and you

When you come to me
Things aren't quite the same
Reasons to live become stronger
I lose all sense of shame

From the loudest of sounds
To the melodic chants
All I hear is your voice
All I see are your hands

When things get tough
You bail me out
When the path becomes unclear
You clear my doubt

I know I can hold your hands
And walk to the end of this world
I trust every word of yours
That's the revelation of moments curled

My faith may shake in me
But I'll always have faith in you
And even if we stand at the end of paradise
At least we'll be together, I and you

Love, true

There’s a reason I do what I do
A reason I think I need to tell you
A reason to my existence
A reason only you could see through

There’s not much to this life;
Sorrow and pain run rife.
Victories are few and far between,
Not enough love, so much strife

In the midst of all comes an angel
Descends on me like a love apostle
She takes away the anger, frustration
Fills my heart with the means to survival

You listen to my every plea
You make me more than me
You break through all my constraints
For all I know, a goddess is thee

So there’s the reason for you
For why I do what I do
The reason for my existence
I love you true

After all, it's your smile

I see you smile
again and again
The only thing I treasure
through my pain

When the going gets tough,
a reminder of your smile rejuvenates.
For everything that hurts,
there's nothing that your smile can't dissipate

Life may get difficult;
life may get ugly
But every time I see you smile,
even my agony feels lovely

You may have seen
how I react when you smile
Because that particular moment
makes my life a little more worthwhile

You may be thinking
why I am making such a big fuss.
It's not that big a deal, my love
It's just everything your smile does

To understand all I say
It may take you a while
But remember this, my love
After all, it's your smile

Forever we are

For a long time I waited
Standing on my own
Walking on the path shown
By this world unknown

The wait is finally over
As I no longer stand alone
I have someone to call my own
For whom I'll move every mountain, every piece of stone

As I reside in your warm embrace,
I finally found a place for me
Where I have grown
To be a man you look upon

So, here I stand
With your hand in my hand
Looking forward to future grand
Through the dust, we see a new land

Here we are
Celebrating what's ours
Forgetting all the scars
Are aligned our stars

Nothing could stop us
Nothing could take this away
As time permits our getaway
In each other we could stay

Here we are
Forever we are!

New horizon

My silence of eternity
Found a voice recently.
It rung through my ears
Calming the nerves fervently.

It pierced through my heart,
And jolted my soul.
The walls that confined me
Now bore a gaping hole.

Never was I so restless
And calm at the same time.
I was terrified of what was to come
And at the same time, welcomed this beautiful chime.

There was no giving up
As I lay down to see the stars
Behold! I found my star
In the sky, held like holy grail in a cup

I felt the grip getting stronger,
The urge to finally give in to this feeling.
It was what I always wanted
Finally, can I break through that glass ceiling?

I found my locked up sense of belief,
The reason for me to live again.
All I could see was the love you brought,
Or may be, I was going insane.

There, I found your love in me
In my heart I'll preserve it for life.
And you'll have to do is come find me
'Cause together with you, I long to be

A journey through my heart

Come with me.
Let me take you on a tour
To a place so deep
A place filled with joys of yours

Step into my heart
A place where only you live
Look into that corner
That's the first moment of you and me

You see that little picture?
That's the first one we clicked together
And though it's only one of many,
It is etched here forever

Come down this street.
Do you see that highway?
It's the road we took for our first drive
The first time we rode,
The first on my heart your hand lay

Just a little further,
That's the place we first kissed.
And it may have been just 5 minutes
But it laid foundation to a life blessed

Further down this lane
Are the moments we spent together
Every moment more special than before,
Each moment made for our pure fervor

Many such moments reside in my heart
Created by you, so wonderful and pure
And when you walk down my heart
You'll find more, of that I am sure

And when you find my love for you here
Don't be overwhelmed
It's just the beginning of a chapter
Of a book written for us by God

In my heart will you always stay
No distance would keep us apart
And for all that you have in this life
I'll give you more of me and my heart

Ever since I saw you,
My life has turned around.
I smile a little more,
I laugh a little harder,
I stop by to smell the roses,
I have turned a little smarter.
I scorn a little lesser,
I enjoy the finer things a bit more,
I want to take a risk or two,
I want to fight a little longer.

Ever since I met you,
My life has turned for better.
'Cause I love you,
My love for you is true,
And whatever I'll do,
I'll do it for you.
There's nothing more important to me
Than you.
I love you,
I'll always do!

Lovestruck I am;
Lovestruck are you!

A dream come true

For a long time
I had a dream
A dream I saw alone
I had no one to share it with
I had no one to fight for
All I had was a dream
A dream I saw alone

Some days I'd put up a fight
To realize that dream
Some other days I'd think
'Why fight when I have nothing
To fight for?'
Some days I'd have a purpose
Some days I'd feel down
Unwanted, alone

Then one day things changed
I found purpose
I found motive
I found meaning to my life
A reason to fight for

I wanted to live more
I wanted a better life
I wanted to go on
I wanted more from everything
I found my will to fight

It was a day like no day before
It was brighter than yesterday
My dream found life that day
A melancholy strain became a beautiful duet

That day turned everything around
There was a purpose new, because
That was the day I met you
And it was better than before
It was a dream come true
'Cause I fell in love with you

Friday, August 14, 2015

A place for me

I was looking for a place
To hide from this cruel world
To get away from the dreaded
From the venom of the snakes curled

I found it in your arms
Where I found safety
I checked into the unknown
Even if the price seemed hefty

You wiped my tears
You made me feel special
And I could rest in peace
Your touch was that soothing, gentle

Nowhere would I rather be
Than being in your eyes
'Cause that's all I want to see
That's where my heart lies

So let me bathe in your sunshine
Let me be whole again
Your love is all I need
It takes away all my pain

My heaven

For a long time I wondered,
"What's there beyond this realm?
Is there another world in existence?
Is there a heaven I could find?"

I met you, and I found
There's nothing else I need to look for
'Cause the bliss I was yearning for
Is right here with me.

In you I found my heaven
In you I found my purpose
I saw what it means to be with you
I found what it is to be us

Angels may be a figment of imagination
But I found one for real
And may be somewhere a heaven exists,
But I have mine right here

So what do I care of another realm
Or whether there's bliss someplace else.
All I know is you're my bliss
And I don't need anything else!

The only truth

I remember the day when I first met you.
The world had changed for me that day.
That moment brought me a new lease of life;
It felt that I had found the person I wanted;
The person I'll call my wife.

The place was electric, I could feel the sparks
In your eyes, I could see the world new
I could finally let the pain of yesterday go;
I could see where my path leads me to.

I didn't know what love meant till I saw you
And now I know nothing but love
Because I have the angel sent for me from above
And that's all that remains in my life

So, when I write this
All I want to tell you
There's nothing else to say, or to do
All I know and only thing to me is true
I love you; I'll always do...

Friday, July 31, 2015

I, you

If I don't have you,
My life would be blue.
I don't know what would I do,
Without you

I would be
A verb without its subject
A sentence without its content
Parts of speech with no parts left

A garden without the flowers
A rain without the showers
A summer without the sun
A soldier without his gun

Without you,
I won't have any meaning.
My life would be demeaning
The world won't exist for me
There's nothing I'd like to see.

But I have you.
My life couldn't be any better
You're the ocean that fills this crater
You hold my pieces together
And now nothing else but you matter

And I have you
I know everything will be alright
I am ready for every fight
All I have is your light
And the strength in your sight

No words do I need
On my land you're the seed
I'll irrigate with our love true
Together, we'll start a life new

The only truth

I may have have said this a thousand times,
Yet every time I say this
It feels like the first time I say.
Because every time I say this,
I have the same emotions.

I know that it's cliché
When I say,
"I'd do anything for you.
I'll bring the stars on earth,
Or fight the world if I need to."

But when I say so,
Deep down you know
I speak the truth;
I'll keep my word
Even if it means to give up myself

So if I've said this a thousand time
This will be still the first time
When I say this
I love you; I'll always do
Beyond this life and death

And beyond every dimension,
I'd say this another thousand times and more;
I love you; oh! I love you, my dear
And that's the only truth I know

Our tomorrow

Look at the sky gray
It has opened up
Pouring down on this barren land
From the top to the bottom,
And bottom to top

It reminds me of you;
What your love means to me!
The reason for my resurrection
Like a rain to a dying tree

My monochromatic dull life
Is filled with your colors
Like a blank canvas
That an artist in you discovered

It's your song that I hear
In my soul I preserve it
And my life depends
On what you predict

There's no place better
For me than your eyes;
They are windows to tomorrow
Where there are flowers and butterflies

A beautiful world it is
Where only we stay
It's our safe haven
And it'll remain like this forever, I pray

So look at the skies gray
It's pouring down for us
It's our celebration
In it we'll exist; we'll buss!

Never say goodbye!

Wandering around was my mind
Looking for a place to rest
To finally find peace
Away from the lies and hate

The ghosts of yesterday that chased me
They haunted me again and again
In my remains of yesterday
It reminded me of my misery and pain

I couldn’t save me from me
And all I could do
Was to destroy myself piece by piece
While salvaging a piece or two

In the darkest moment of mine
Where I was trapped, claustrophobic
Where no light could reach
And only end was nigh, catastrophic

 I saw a ray of hope
Filtered through the gaping hole
Brightening the depths of mine
Resurrecting the broken soul

I rose from my ashes
To find the force unknown
What had changed me from within?
Who had given me a different tone?

There were you
Standing right in front of me
With a smile so innocent and electrifying
And eyes through which the world I could see

I was skeptic, afraid
A feeling so strange had overtaken
I didn’t know what to do
‘Cause I remembered been forsaken

I recalled being impaled
By emotions so sharp
They had killed me before
Like a knife, or a wire barb

I remembered the tears
That they had brought to my eye
“Can I let myself go through this again?
Should I give this another try?”

But you didn’t budge
You didn’t leave me alone
You wiped those tears away
You preserved them like they were your own

You cast away all my doubts,
And touched my very soul
You taught me how to breathe again
You gathered all the pieces, you made me whole

Now all I want to do
Is give you everything I could
Move mountains if need be,
Or just be with you for good

You’ve painted me with your memories
Something I will never trade for anything
With your hand in my hand
I could imagine a life where I have everything

There’s only one thing I need from you
Whether I live in hell or fly in the sky
Always be with me
Just never say goodbye!

A vow

Ringing through my head
Is your voice
Day in day out
All I think, all I know
Is you, without a doubt

There is no reason for me
To act this way
All the time.
But somewhere, something has changed
Where your heart rhymes with mine

A connection established
Beyond our comprehension
Unknown to our senses
But a bond created nevertheless
Bringing down the walls, through the fences

Our destinies intertwined
I don't know how
I don't know why
What I do know is
The bond's unbreakable
Whether we live or die

And now our existence
Is beyond our physical forms
Our souls fused together
Promising safe passage
Through all rains and storms

And all is well
In God's own haven
Where we reside now
And in your embrace
I'll spend my life, I vow

Monday, July 20, 2015

Your love

If your love is light,
There's no light brighter,
No sun shinier
And no path more luminous

If your love is rain,
I want to stay drenched
As it is the purest of pure love
That irrigates the barren hearts

If your love is sand,
There's no desert more beautiful
No place more warm,
For I'd want to burn in that thirst

If your love is flower,
I'd want to be the garden
Where it blossoms
And spread your fragrance across me

It's only your love I long
And only destiny of mine
To wrap you in my skin,
For your love is divine

Sunday, July 19, 2015

Angel of my life

I've been around the world
Through seven seas
Through seven continents
And all the oceans

And then I found out
Everything I was looking for
Was in front of me
All I wanted was sight of yours

You spread your wings;
Flew into my life
Made me a better person
Took away all my strife

I want us to be together
And I will give up on you never

You're the angel
The one I was looking for
And we'll fly away
To the realm only we belong

Friday, July 17, 2015

God's gift: my angel

When you walked into my life
You changed me for good
You gave me the reason to live,
and do everything for you I could.

I heard that angels don't exist.
Yet, here you are right in front of me
Healing the past wounds of mine,
and showing me what I can be.

So when we get together,
and get pronounced man and wife
I know, all will be well with us
Because you will be in my life

Together, we'll scale the mountains,
Together, we'll take the highway
Together, we'll dance tomorrow,
and make the most of everyday

With every passing moment
our bond will only get stronger
We'll fight every odd out there
And love with pure fervor.

What do people know of angels?
Have they ever seen one?
They don't know of the light you bestow
You are my midnight sun

Here's my angel from heaven
A god's gift to me
And with her I'll spend my life
Together, we'll fly away; unafraid and free

I love you

I love you
Every word of it is true
There's no doubt that I'll do
Whatever you tell me to

I'll bring the heaven down on earth
Or go to hell if you say
I'll light a candle for you
Or burn for you myself

My love won't die for you
Even if someday I do
I won't give up on you
And I know you are there for me too

These may be just words
But these words mean way more
Because you're not just a person to me
You're the only world I know for sure

You love is my beacon
Of hope and life
And even if life breaks me down,
I know, in you, I'll survive

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

For the first time

When I met you for the first time,
I knew there was something special about you
Something that woke the dead emotions of mine
Reaching the deepest of depths in me
A scary thought of being undone
Mixed with willingness to lose myself one more time.

When you touched me for the first time,
I could feel my heart skipping a thousand beats
Releasing the fears I had harbored in me
Giving way to feelings I hadn't known existed within
Like the sands of time had frozen inside that hourglass

When we kissed for the first time,
I let go of the demons in my head
My heart found a reason to beat again
There were tears in my eyes, of joy long forgotten
And the beast had been slayed, the human reborn

In your eyes for the first time,
I had seen myself, perfectly fine
A reflection to cherish forever
A rhythm to be preserved in my moments
And I could feel your eyes seeing through me.

I dropped the walls surrounding me
Because for the first time
I knew
It was okay to be vulnerable
It was okay to let you reach my depths
And you found my crushed soul to breathe new life

For the first time
I am alive, thanks to you
I can see the picture perfect future of ours
And a beautiful tomorrow awaits us

For the first time, thanks to you!

Monday, July 13, 2015

And, I'll love you

Like a sun you shine upon me
And the clouds of emptiness fade away
You fill me with colors of rainbow
In your colors I want to stay

What did I know of civilities,
Or how to live without pain?
But your touch melted my heart
It put me back together again

Where do I go if not to you?
Where is my place if not in you?
You're my galaxy; I am your star
In you I heal my every scar.

Loving you is not an option;
It's the only thing I know how to
And whether I live or die
Forever and ever, I'll love you

And, I'll love you

Our path

There was a path
I was afraid to walk
A road I wanted to leave alone
An untravelled path of I talk

You held my hand
And took me on that path with a smile
You showed me what it means
To walk together a mile

And by the side of that path
Where we lay to forget our sorrows
I looked in your eyes
Full of life and promises of tomorrow

And I saw you lying next to me
Awake, unafraid of whatever may come
Your touch telling me a thousand things
About what we are, and together what we'll become

I no longer am afraid of living
'Cause I have you by my side
And whatever happens next
We'll be together, together we'll ride

Saturday, July 11, 2015


There's a place beyond this realm
Where our dimensions don't exist
Our forms are not the same
Where time defies logic
And words mean no more

Where our sounds dissipate
And life is beyond recognition
A world so far from our truth
A world beyond our comprehension

A stranger than strange reality
That exists without any knowledge
Where connections snap away
And nothing really matters beyond the edge

In that realm, and thousand such dimensions
the only connection that matters
Is the connection of love

Love's incomprehensible
Love's indestructible
Love is infinite knowledge
Love comes without any baggage

Whatever dimension we reside
Love connects us all
It goes beyond the dimensions of time and space
Love means everything, love is means to all

Friday, July 10, 2015

Come with me

Come with me
Hold my hand
Walk with me
To another land

Allow me to show you
A tranquil place
Full of possibilities for us
Illuminated by your grace

Where your throbbing pulse
Runs through me
Like blood through my veins
Your heartbeat in me I see

Where the tenderness of your touch
Sends chills through my spine
In that world only you exist
Like a sun bright you shine

Where the rhythm of your sound
Fills the empty insides of mine
And every breath you take
Is a moment in which is my life

So come with me
Embrace my pain
Make it go away
Make me sane again

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Forever, and ever

Thank you for everything you do
To make my life a little bit better than before
It's your love that made me realize
How empty I was without you
And you are everything I want to live and die for

In you I found a purpose to my being
And a reason to rhyme and sing
And when you took my heart in lieu of yours
I realized how much I wanted you, needed you

I know we are meant for each other
I know we are supposed to be together
What do I need now in life
When I have you forever, and ever

All there's to my life
Is hold your hand forever
You're the eternal sunshine of mine
We'll always be together, beyond forever

Sunday, July 5, 2015

A part of you

If I were a star
I'd have shone just for you
Like the burning fire you are
Your light would've fueled me

If I were a drop
I would've fallen into your waters
Like the deep ocean of love you are
I would've found peace in your depth

If I were a pebble
I would lie on you
Like the beautiful land you are
Where I could bloom with your flowers

If I were wind
I would've been blowing through you
Like the fragrance you are
I would've been filled with you

Whatever I would've been
I know
I would've been
A part of you

Friday, July 3, 2015

Let's go to a place

Let's go to a place
Where there is no one else
Far from this world
Away from the probing eyes

Let's go to a place
Where I can dance
In your trance
Like no one's watching

Let's go to a place
Free of lies, greed, misery of this world
Where there's only our love that exists
And for nothing we care

Let's go to a place
Where we can lose our sanity
Lose ourselves into each other
And only live in each other

Let's go to a place
Where sun shines for only us
And rain falls only for us
Where every day we live a new life

So come with me
Hold my hand
So that we can fly away
To the place that exists only for us

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

More than words

The words I say to you
They are more than just true
They carry the feelings I have for you
They express everything for you I'll do

The stars have never shone brighter
The winds have never been so strong
They give purpose to my existence
They tell me what's right and wrong

The innocent smile of yours
Is what I treasure so much
Your voice remains in my head
And I long for your divine touch

In your arms
I found my reason to live
That's where I want be forever
Whatever it takes, whatever it gives

There's no future better
Than a life with you
And believe me when I say this
Our love is divine; our love is true

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


The pain I went through
I left it in yesterday
And before the darkness prevails
I'll be gone to a better place

In your dreams will I stay
For you always I pray
Where misery doesn't exist
A life I can't resist

Every word you say
Is the word of God to me
The only thing I hear
The only thing I see

And when we go to tomorrow
There will be no sorrow
Where we'll find bliss
In purity of our kiss

It'll be our beginning
It'll be our rain
It'll wash the sins off my skin
It'll make me whole again

Our dreams will come true tomorrow
When we unite for eternity
There will be no emptiness
Only light of ours illuminating our destiny

The day I met you

The day I met you
Was the day something changed in me
The starlight shone brighter that day
A new hope I could see

A future full of possibilities
Free from the pain of past
I could see our life together
A relationship built to last

Through your eyes I could see the horizon new
In your skin I could feel my vein
A touch of tenderness
As pure as the first rain

The day I met you
My life changed for sure
I understood what is love
A feeling so pure

In love

Someday someone asked me
"Define love."
I showed your picture
"She's the definition of love."

"How?" He asked.
"Look at her smile
The purity of it.
Look at her eyes
Window to her soul."

"How do you see all that in her?"
"You don't see that, you feel that.
Her magic, her purity
Her voice entrances me,
Her look fills me with hope,
Her touch thrills my soul,
Her kiss fills me with life.

Tranquil is her song
Calming is her influence,
Serene is her touch
Divine is her embrace

In full moon's light
She sparkles like a diamond
And like a rising sun
She illuminates my world."

"Crazy you're man, crazy!"
He said.
"No, my friend.
In love I am, in love!"

Your love
Is the most beautiful thing
Your love
Is the song I sing

Your smile is stuck in my head
Your touch is etched in my heart
Your beauty is riding on my thoughts
Your purity is part of my soul

A reason you are for my smile
For the things I do all the times
You are what I believe in
You wash away my every sin

Forever I'll revere you
Forever will I be yours
And even if the world crumbles around us
Forever I'll protect you; you're my heart and soul

Dear life, for love

They said love isn't easy
That it brings a lot of pain
That it's full of misery
It is the storm, a torrid rain

And when life gets in the way
It takes its toll
Love fades away
And leaves the heart alone

I called out life on that
"There's nothing more beautiful than love."
Life laughed at me
"These are only words you see."

Life threw a punch
It laughed harder
I got back up
It said, "I thought you were smarter?"

Dear life, throw as many punches you want,
And kick me as hard as you can.
But I'll get back up every time
To protect my love divine

Is that the best you've got?
Is this your best shot?
Because no one can take my love
Even if it means giving myself up

Life asked, "why don't you give up?
Why do you fight for love?"
"It's the only thing I know.
It's where I find my strength to go."

Dear life, do whatever you want
Our love is for eternity, whether you like it or not
She's my very soul, my skin is her protection
In her is my salvation

Do what you must, I'll not stop loving
In her is my place
A goddess she is
My life is in her reverence

An offering

Take me away from me
From the cruel world I know
A nightmare of yesterday
A blinding dream hollow

Put me in your heart
The dream that my soul chases
In your everlasting love
Where my heart beats, my pulse races

Slither through my veins
And fill me with your light
Wash the sorrow off my skin
And give me a new flight

In your divine intervention
Lies the ascension of my soul
The weight of past sins I give up
So that you can make me whole

Today I bow down in front of you
And offer the only thing I have
My heart and soul belongs to you
And your love is filled in that

In my heart

I fight a battle everyday
Everyday I take on this world
Because you are with me
Because you are my love unfurled

I live because of you
I fight because of you
You heal my every pain
I breathe because of you

All I want to do
Is cast my doubts away
And protect you from every pain and misery
That's the only thing I want to do and say

So when the going gets tough
Don't just give up
I'll always be there for you
Nothing will make me stop

Your love powers me
Your love gives me hope
Because of you, my love
I fight through, with pain I cope

So, just hold my hand
Don't let it go
Keep me in your heart and soul
We'll be alright through the storm that blow

God has brought us together
And nothing can do us apart
Leave out all the rest
And just live in my heart

Us and we

There was a time
I lost every battle I fought
I had lost my self to them
Defeat was my only thought

Running away seemed the only option
Hiding from everything I feared
Everything seemed my fault
Nowhere did I belong; left were only tears

You found the pieces of me
You put me back together
A battle weary soul redeemed
A wall broken down from the pieces gathered

And now I lay in your arms
Where I found shelter from the storm
Your fingers running through my hair
No more I feel the fear I used to run from

Now that you hold me
No longer do I run
And I have everything to live for
Without any regrets of what I had done

So now we stand together
There is no separating us
We were always meant to be
No you and I, it's us and we.

No more a stranger

One fine day I met you,
A stranger you were
But more than a person,
My dream turned reality you were

I saw my future in you
The eraser to my past you were
I saw a reason to exist in you
The resurrection of my soul you were

A poet's verse
A divine song you were
An answered prayer
God's gift to me you were

So now I see you
A scene of serenity you are
Whatever I do now,
Its reason you are

So now I see you,
Here, here you are
For whom my heart beats now
No more a stranger you are

My Angel!

There was a time
I walked the face of this earth
Alone, direction less
Without the knowledge of tomorrow
Devoid of emotions
Vulnerable, defenseless

Then the god smiled upon me
In his grace I found my purpose
Of life, of existence
A sign sent my way
From heavens above
For my persistence, perseverance

A lost soul was saved
From its destruction,
A lost cause was found
In my salvation

I must have done something good,
For god sent me her most beautiful angel
Bestowed me with his best gift
Salvaged my life fragile

All I have to say now is
Thank you for everything that you do
Your love completes me
And loving you is all I do

My age is not in months or years
It's measured in beats of your heart
And my heartbeats are a gift from you
I'll do everything you tell me to

You're my rhythm
You're my rhyme
You're the lyrics of my song
The reason of my verses you are

I knew not what forever meant
And what it meant to be together
But now that I have you
I know,
Being with you is eternity
And forever is not enough to love you

Oh my beautiful angel!
The gods have united us
And in your grace I laugh, I cry
In your love I'll live my entirety
Your life I'll breathe, and for you I'll die

For us

I want you to know
That I do everything for you
That’s the only purpose I have
That’s the only way I can do

There was not much that I possessed
Just a few things within
But with the wealth of love that you shower on me
I am richer than I could ever imagine

I love the way you smile
Like a diamond shining through
And the way you look at me
That is my favorite view

In our love resides our destiny
It’s the only thing I know
Now that you and I have become ‘us’

Let the rain fall for us, for us let the wind blow

For you I exist

To your ocean of love
Flows my river of madness
The only destination it knows
The only place it’ll find calm and gladness

What is there in the world if not for love?
That exists through our very unison
In our heart and minds
The remembrance of our divine fusion

And when they ask
“Why do you love so much?”
I have only one answer,
“Her magic is such!”

No more questions are left
No more doubts remain
My destiny is set in stone
As you flow through my every vein

There is no separation
Of I and you;
Fused together forever
Like a river in an ocean blue

Let them say whatever they want
Let them eat their heart out
For they can’t fathom the purity of love
The one we share they don’t know about

In your heart, I finally found a place
A haven I always longed for
So now I can lose myself into you

And love you a wee bit more

In you I exist

My wretched soul
Was on the edge of the unknown
Ready to give up on life
Tearing through my skin and bone

There was no light
Only darkness prevailed
But then you smiled on me
When everything else had failed

Your song filled my heart
Your smile brightened my day
Like a sun through the clouds
It took my sorrows away

My existence is through you
In your name is my meaning
There is no place I want to be
Than in your every feeling

The god sent you for me
To salvage my broken dreams
In your grace is my salvation
Your calm saves me from all extremes

There’s a tranquil melody
In the union of our soul
Where miseries don’t subsist
And love is the only goal

You are the only song I sing
You are the only prayer I know
And every word I say
Is molded in what upon me you bestow

Quintessential is my existence
As I breathe in your air
It’s the very reason for me
Of nothing else do I care

So press your temple against my chest
Feel your name through every beat of my heart
Your love is what makes it go
Even the gods can’t tear us apart

New dawn

My life was never so beautiful
Never had I travelled the untraveled path of emotions
Thanks to you my love
I now live differently; I let go a world of commotions

In a world of chaotic changes
You are my only constant
Your love is my beacon of hope
Your touch is the only thing important

Your love is as pure
As god’s own pasture green
It’s deeper than any ocean, and
Calmer than a river serene

The sun now only rises for us
Illuminating my heart once dark
No longer am I afraid of tomorrow
And on a new journey of life, we embark

Our love has made me
What I thought I could never be
But now that I am with you
The world, in awe, will see

The dawn of a new day
That’ll take all the darkness away
And in your light I’ll bathe
Our love will forever stay

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Your protection

The love we share,
Is the only thing for which I care
It’s the only thing I know for sure
That our love is divine and pure

Each day now brings a new hope
Some new smiles and a way to cope
From the miseries of yesterday
I look forward to a new life everyday

My heart only beats for you
Your song gives me the strength to fight through
In every moment of adversity
Your soul gives me the sense of calm and serenity

So, here I make a promise to you
My love for you would always be true
I’ll forever be your protective shell
Whether we stay in heaven or hell!

Eternity and beyond

The shadow within me
Has escaped in the light
Like an answer to my prayer
Like a resolution to my plight

Your light has chased the darkness away
It has filled me with new reason
A reason to live again
To weather the storm and enjoy every season

No longer do I want to give up
No longer do I want to run away
All I want is your velvet touch
Like a dawn of a new day

It’s the only thought I have now
It’s the only word I say
So, don’t be afraid of me
If I love you a little more than yesterday

All I have is a hope
That tomorrow would be better than before
Because I have you
And with you, I’ll cross every sea, find every new shore

So come with me
On an adventure of a lifetime
We’ll find a safe haven
Where no doubts prevail, only stays our love divine

Let’s make a promise to each other
Never will we stay apart
For eternity and beyond
Our love we’ll preserve in our heart

In your debt

The sound of your voice
Rings through my head
The strength it gives me
Brings me back from dead

I knew nothing but lies
The pain and the broken ties
Your voice pierced through them
Saved me from a life I condemn

The path you showed
Forever I’ll walk
Whether it leads to a new beginning
Or puts me on a chopping block

I’ll forever be in your debt,
For I owe you my life
With you I’ll stay forever
Give you happiness; take away all your strife

Your voice is forever in my head
Your face forever in my heart
This was all meant to be

It’s a new life together we start

Thursday, May 14, 2015


The love that I found in you
It keeps me afloat
Gives me the strength to fight
Tells me everything’s alright

In this cruel world
I saw your light of mercy
A gentle breeze of calm
A touch of soothing palm

Let me stretch across you
Save you from this world unknown
I’ll wrap you inside me
In a place where no one can see

The world is full of lies
There are only so many truths
My only truth is you
Our love is vaster than the ocean blue

So let’s become one
Erase the distance that lies between
And then the gods will only see
I in you; you in me

Line in the sand

Love is the only emotion
That puts the world in motion
It drives everything forward
Makes things perfect and awkward

I know I love you
I know that you do too
The words can’t reveal them
How we share that flame

You slither through my veins
You are the only thoughts in my brain
You are my every heartbeat
You complete the incomplete

You’re a part of me I’ll never let go
For you, I’ll take their every blow
Just keep singing that beautiful song
That’s the only thing for I ever long

I’ll forever hold your hand
And draw that line in the sand
It’ll carry our names together
Etching us in history forever!

You, me, we!

The soul within me
Tells me everyday
You’re my only truth
I live for you each day

There’s nothing else I want
There’s nothing else I need
Just you and I together
You’re my only sacred Creed

Like the sun rising from the east
You’re my universal truth
My pain and my misery
All my feelings that you soothe

You and I are no longer apart
Now all I know is ‘we’
And the forces unknown can’t take that away
Neither me from you, nor you from me

A life together

The bond between us 
Is stronger than ever
It’s what empowers me
Reflects in my every endeavor

Our life together
Is epitome of perfection
It’s our heaven of love
It’s our soul’s reflection

No matter what anybody says
I’ll forever be yours
Even if I have to fall for you
Or knock down countless doors

No longer can we stay apart
We long for each other
No one can tell us what to do
It’s our world that we’ll build together

Now remains no doubt
Our hearts now beat for each other
An unbreakable bond we share
We’ll always be together

North Star

I love you
That’s the only truth I know
The truth of my reality
That I’ll never let you go

I love your every smile
I long for your soft touch
I burn to give you light
For you, my love is such

What do I know of earthly possessions,
For I don’t own any of it
All I have for you is my love,
And a forlorn soul that to you I commit

I’ll give you every bit of me
And take away all your pain
So that I can see you smile forever
And watch you dance in the rain

To you I owe my life
My angel you are
And with you I’ll stay forever
I’ll be your north star
