A Thousand Drops

A Thousand Drops

The rain spread love in drops,
And a thousand flowers bloomed;
The wind blew kisses in air,
And a thousand flowers blushed.

The drops fell on a thousand leaves,
Waking them up from slumber;
The leaves swayed on a thousand trees,
Sprinkling down pearls of water.

Gurgling with carefree laughter,
The water flowed in a thousand little brooks;
Rushing with abundant energy,
The streams caressed a thousand rocks.

In a thousand different paths,
In a thousand different ways,
Flows a thousand streams,
With life in thousands of drops.

Wait

Wait

i ask the clouds,
did you see her walk by?

i ask the winds,
did you hear her voice?

i ask the sands,
did you feel her footsteps?

i ask the waves,
did you wash her feet?

the waves remain silent,
even as they crash on the shore.

the sands remain still,
even as the footsteps fade.

the winds fly by,
even as the voice trails off.

the clouds roll in,
even as they lose sight.

i still hear,
the tinkle of her laughter.

i still feel,
the warmth of her words.

i still see,
the love in her eyes.

i still wait,
with hope in my heart.

Mist

..
she walks into the mist,
melting into a hazy form;
the mist envelopes her,
drawing her into it.

i walk off the mist,
freezing into a numb form;
the mist clears around me,
steering me away from it.

Fragrance of Roses

i can’t keep the roses forever,
i can keep the memories;

i hold the hand,
with nervous ease;
i keep looking up,
to see the smile;
i tighten my grip,
afraid to get lost.

i hear the voice,
soothing, soft and sweet;
i feel my heart beat,
calmly in rhythm,
with the words
echoing softly in my mind.

i lie down to sleep,
afraid to lose you when I wake up;
i pray with shivering lips,
fingers clasped tight;
hope keeps me afloat,
i would drown otherwise.

the fragrance of the roses will remain,
until the last whiff of air i breathe.

A Tiny Speck

 

Dark clouds loomed,

Waiting to rain on with fury:

I felt small, a tiny speck,

Stranded alone to face it.

 

A bolt of lightning struck,

Sudden and swift;

Swept me off my feet,

Slammed on the ground.

 

The rain came on,

With all its might,

With all its rage,

With all its pain.

 

The tiny speck I am,

Stranded alone to face it;

On my knees I stood,

Palms folded in prayer.

 

I have not the power,

For I am left alone;

I call out to thee,

Spare me the agony.

A Steady Hand

the hand that pulls me,

up from deep chasms;

the touch that calms me,

in the midst of chaos;

I will not quit,

for it’s you by my side.

 

the footsteps that i follow,

into the mist;

the voice that guides me,

through the haze;

I know I will not falter,

for it’s you ahead.

 

the light that leads me,

out from the darkness;

the wind that propels me,

through all the vastness;

I will sail to glory,

for it’s you at the helm.

ഞാൻ അറിയുന്നു

വേനൽ വന്നു പോയതറിഞ്ഞില്ല,
കുളിർമഴയായി നീ പെയ്തത് ഞാൻ ഓർക്കുന്നു.

മഴ പെയ്തു പോയതറിഞ്ഞില്ല ,
മഴത്തുള്ളികൾ നിൻ കയ്യിൽ തുള്ളികളിച്ചത് ഞാൻ ഓർക്കുന്നു.

മഞ്ഞു മൂടിയത് ഞാൻ അറിഞ്ഞില്ല,
ചൂട് പകർന്ന നിൻ കൈകൾ ഞാൻ ഓർക്കുന്നു.

വസന്തം വന്നു പോയതറിഞ്ഞില്ല,
എന്നും വസന്തമാക്കാൻ നീ ഉണ്ടെന്ന് ഞാൻ അറിയുന്നു.
