Aching feet difficult path, breathless becomes my heavy heart;
A quest unknown far and wide, just endless on my heavy heart.

Memories of roses – soft like feathers – touch and tickle me,
Memories of thorns – sharp like blades – slash my restless heavy heart.

Days and nights appear like apparition – white and black pigeons;
They perch on the weak, rusted bars of my helpless heart.

Endearments in the air, I hear- soft like sweet rain-drops whispers;
They evoke love amid soreness of my wistful heavy heart.

Where to find you, I know not – the faint echoes intensify;
Am I chasing the Ruby feelings – my helpless heavy heart?



Let’s bring back the smiles and tears of our bygone days;
My love, you tread on the dreams of my bygone days;

The moonlight through the window, merging silhouettes,
Silver purple silence we breathed in our bygone days!

A thousand ships sailed towards the sun; waves quivered;
Happiness leaped at our feet in our bygone days!

You and I hand in hand in a long long journey,
Have still preserved the essence of our bygone days!

At sunset we explore the beauty and wonder –
Remains with us the Ruby of our bygone days!



In a moonless midnight, your thoughts invade my mind,
familiar strangers create brainwaves in my mind.

Your memories I don’t have wish to create some;
They drop like stars into the landscape of my mind.

The cocoon of your thought’s weavings of memories;
Dispelling darkness, the deep canyons of my mind.

Stars in the stream; up above the soft milky way,
memories made- star-pearls shine and brighten my mind.

Your approach like Ruby streaks of a silver dawn-
Faint whispers, frenzied words, emanate from my mind.
