    Life is all about
    learning to love
    and letting go.

    And what do I do
    With this residual pain
    That haunts me in the
    Darkness of day
    My eyes are dry
    But the memory's alive
    Like flashes they appear
    And out loud, they cry
    Tell me, oh Lord
    How do I stop this hurt?
    This slow healing is
    Burning me up
    Only you know
    How it's like
    When two walk
    On paths, unaligned
    I look to You
    For peace and comfort
    Don't leave me Lord
    These needles hurt
    So, stay with me
    And hug me tight
    Be my moon
    In this dark, dark night.

    Letting go...

    you hold
    a bird in your palm
    you feed it, caress it
    play tunes for it to sing
    you go with it everywhere
    to the bazaar, the office,
    the bed,
    to the farthest of dreams
    and the closest of realities,
    unheard and unsaid.
    It makes you happy,
    less lonely
    loved, in a way
    even though, you know,
    all that the bird wants to do
    is fly away...

    Love and forget 🌷

    Love,
    and forget
    as spontaneously as
    the sun-beams, the bees
    the waves in the seas
    Love, not
    for any reason,
    not how the world sees
    but let the heart speak,
    how it feels
    like fluorescent tulips blooming
    in a pleasant summer breeze.

    Breathe.

    Let go.

    My only Valentine for a lifetime ~ Meher Baba 🌷

    He pulled me out of an abyss
    Turned my world upside down
    Or right side up
    It was an adventure
    Of a lifetime,
    of something only worth experiencing
    in every life I live
    With all the joys and agonies
    The separation and longing
    For there’s nothing more to want
    Nothing more to have
    Nothing more to live for
    But His love.

    The sun had set
    The stars had departed
    The echos continued
    Of a love once unbated
    They’d shut their ears
    And try to run
    from the echos, the abyss
    that longed their return
    The soil was wet
    From tears and rain
    They’d skid and fall,
    their attempts in vain
    How they ached
    To not look back
    For the fall was steep
    With no upward track
    Brushing off, they tried
    They tried to stand
    To resume their run
    With hearts in their hand
    Tired and weary
    now, miles apart
    slowly helped them
    to a fresh start
    A dozen came
    A dozen passed by
    Hearts were tested
    with every goodbye
    Till One of them
    realised
    the transience of
    this labyrinthine life.
    And so, It decided
    To search for the Truth
    that couldn’t be deterred, nor altered,
    just naturally understood.
    Hope accompanied hopelessness
    Joy and despair swished
    But the will was strong
    Not an ounce diminished
    Years passed
    New lives grew
    One had long moved on
    And One was about to
    Till the day arrived
    When It stood before a mirror
    The reflection was but
    a light, growing bigger
    and brighter, embracing,
    making It lighter
    The heart in Its hand
    engulfed in the glow
    Found its way through
    the transcendental shadow
    For it knew, its cradle, its birthplace
    Its everlasting shrine
    Wasn’t ever meant to be with any other
    But only with
    the Divine.

    I’d take baby steps
    Breathe in and out
    When it was time to plunge
    I’d be entangled in doubt

    Slowly I realised
    Only by Your grace
    If I didn't follow my heart
    My life was simply a waste

    That’s when I decided
    No matter the times
    To do what You'd want me to
    To listen silently, in rhymes

    Now that’s what I try
    Mindfully, everyday
    What is the use of all this writing
    when it’s not what You say?

    A misty Sunday evening
    We walk,
    our feet soft, on the rain-soaked path
    while our heads prancing in the clouds
    Our hands clasped tight
    with the lines on our palms, entangled,
    weaving stories of love,
    of hope,
    of joy
    I feel the cool gust of breeze on my cheeks
    It's chilly, but my heart is at peace
    We talk, we speak in silence too
    We share our minds, unseeming
    Rejoicing the feeling of just being
    And amidst the skies
    whispering sweet carols
    We feel our Beloved's gentle hold,
    as He walks with us quietly
    and paints smiles
    on our souls.

    If only we viewed apparent calamities and miseries as stepping stones to God-realisation and as necessary uprooters of past negative karmas, the world wouldn't be in such turmoil as it is now.
    We need to accept everything, good and especially bad, with poise and grace and to believe that whatever happens to us, is as per a divine plan that we know not of.

    I take comfort in this belief and try my best to embrace every moment with love and blessings.
