Momentous Night

Sky is bright and gay
Night is bejewelled with enchanting stars
Moon and its beauty crafted trenches
Chirping crickets are pleasing to the ears
Creating a loquacious night.

As we stare in the vastness
Memories reflected into our senses
Awaken our souls till it cannot breathe
Longing for your love in the wreath
That brings us to eternity.

It was a momentous night
When I first gazed upon your eyes
Terrified by what I would see
Slowly drowning in a perpetual river of
broken hearts and lost souls.

You are like a thief in the night
You take my heart to paradise
You rob me of my anguish and
Drown me with your affection
Till the last breath of my soul.


The first time I saw you
I know you are the “ONE”
When I look into your eyes
I see my reason for existence.
For forever and beyond.

You painted rainbow colors
to the grey and cloudy skies
Made the sun shines
through the stormy weather
You made life wonderful

You give me wings to fly
and soar like an eagle
Wind beneath my wings
when I am about to fall down
Bed of roses for the weary soul

You made me see life
from a different perspective
Making most of my moments
What counts most and
Will last in the end.

You are everything I wish
I want to grow old with
till my mind won’t remember
How my heart is still beating-
The last breath of my soul.

Amore Mio

Accept me as I am, with my imperfections
And see my weaknesses as my strength.
Drown me with your affection
that is deeper than the deepest sea
Excite me with your kindness
uncountable as the stars in the cosmos.
Thrill me with your overflowing patience
that keeps no record of my wrongdoings
Mesmerize me with your surprises
till the eyes shed tears of happiness.
Embrace me till I couldn’t breath
and bring me into paradise.
all of it -------
Love me….
Till the Last Breath of your soul...
