I thought I have forgotten, how it is to love
How blissful it is to be in your loving presence.

Ever since you came and enkindled my heart
I knew, I was never, ever to be the same again.

You have brought so much beauty, so much color
So much meaning, into the empty recesses of my being.

It is unfathomable, how, I would always come alive
Each time, we come together as in a meeting of minds

For to love you is the most natural thing that I can ever do
And to be loved by you is but a product of my imagination,
A dream which should have been joy everlasting!

I Hope, I Found, a Soul Mate in You

When replete with joy with no one to share with
I hope, I found, a soul mate in you.

When tears would flow with no one to wipe them away
I hope, I found, a soul mate in you.

When uncertainties seer into my being with no one to console me
I hope, I found, a soul mate in you.

When times get rough, as they sometimes will
I hope, I found, a soul mate in you.

When everything has fallen and there is only you and I
I hope, I found, a soul mate in you.


Parting is such sweet sorrow, so they say…

But parting is not a sweet thing
For it leaves so much uncertainties
And the fear of the unknown!

But parting is not a sweet thing
It is like waiting, waiting and endlessly waiting
Like a love that never was but only, a fleeting fancy!

But parting is not a sweet thing
It leaves ugly scars etched deep within
As it cries for wanting and the longing to belong!
