Lost


I’ve traveled to many places
wondered and wandered
over life, love
and “what could have been’s”
I was once lost

lost

lost in the wilderness
lost in the crowd
lost in my own pursuits
of “happily -ever- after”
of “dreams-do-come-true”

and

somewhere along the way
I was stuck, stuck and couldn’t
find my way, navigating was harder than ever
re-routing maybe the only way, but even then
road blocks were heavier, mightier than
any of my will power

until

somewhere in between
heavy rains and clouded skies,
beyond the horizon just beneath the rainbow
where they say a pot of gold rests, where no man
has ever ventured, I found, not a pot of gold

but, you

and, together we got lost
over gentle kisses and sweet embraces
over smiles and sighs and reliefs
over pieces of thoughtful memories
over love and dreams and plans

oh babe

let’s be lost together, forever
in love, for it is the best gift ever

I Remember You

 

’twas not so long ago
I came to know you
over exchange of
small talks and “hi” and “hello”
how long has it been?
I can’t even remember then
but I remember you in days
when I’ve run out of things to do
and my muse is in an ultimate unannounced break
I remember you over galleries of photographs
and stunning images of people, of nature,
of even the most insignificant photo
I remember you over wonderful thoughts
about life and motherhood
about living the daily extraordinarily
I remember you
and you reminded me of a
wonderful and brilliant poet, Helene
who’s soul have joined the rest of the lovely angels
and magnificent minds and thinkers
of writers and poets
who have gone ahead of us
in heaven
and so today
I am pretty sure
Helene is up there waving
and smiling as she warmly joins me
in saying “happy birthday, dear Sadje”
I remember you
always

In Your Eyes

I felt your pain
your agonizing pain
among the creases in your forehead
in between the blinking of your eyes
and even as your bedimpled face smiles
the smile I always remembered
gentle and sweet
tugs the heartstrings of my soul
lulls me to sleep and
tucks me to bed
but your pain
your pain
I can feel
keeps me awake
all through the night
and even with my eyes closed
I still see it
I see your pain
In your eyes

when you smile


I want to be the reason
you smile with your eyes
again

I’d Paint You A Life

if I can create a life for you, I will paint
you a life of many colors in different strokes
I’d first color it red, for I want
it filled with love and passion
of prosperity and happiness
with lots of good luck too
then I’d splash a bit of orange
to make your life more vibrant and energetic
and since it is the color of autumn,
it will be a constant reminder to you
of the promise of a new life and a new beginning
that autumn brings, wouldn’t that be wonderful?
yes, it is dear, as that’s how much I love you
and oh, by the way, I’d put a dash of yellow too
to bring sunshine and happiness to you always
for what is life if you will not be happy all the time
my painting sounds magical and whimsical
but I guess, that’s just how it is my love,
for I love you with all the magic in the world
I’d probably sprinkle some cool colors too
like green, blue, and purple
they are the colors of night,
of water, of nature,
and are usually calming, relaxing
because at the end of the day
I wish you peace, love, and solitude
even in the silence of your heart
and in the comfort of wherever
the world will bring you,
and when at night you go to bed my love
you will be reminded that life,
your life is more colorful
and meaningful
with me around
for what else is life
if not shared with the ones
who makes it more vibrant
more colorful
and more meaningful
but for now, let me put my brush at rest
and see what tomorrow’s color maybe.

P. S

I will be very slow in reading and commenting to all of your posts. My internet connection from where i am right now is really very frustrating. Navigating from one site to the other or simply downloading documents is really a struggle.

i miss my regular engagement and interaction with you all.

keep safe everyone…
