love poem

This poem was written by me during our courtship days for my husband.We are childhood sweethearts and the poem was written during my college summer vacations when i couldnt meet him for a long time.A bit childish yet ..very sweet.

caution:Read it with the mindset of a teenager

You are always near me
when i open my eyes every morning
You are always close to wish me a hearty good morning
as i proceed with my daily chores you are there following me
Sharing the morning tea and breakfast
You are always near my heart

As i walk along the lane
u r again there to make me feel secure
At the study table u help me with my studies
u share with me my ideas,plans and schemes

The long evenings are spent cosily together
listening to soft music
In nights as i try to sleep
u slip into my dreams
I feel your presence everywhere
as far as i can see upto the horizon

u r always there in my creation
Like a GOD
u lift me from the realms of this world into the never ending land of
love,hope, trust and affection.

i came across a beautiful story in a book that i was recently reading.
it goes like that..........
a man and his 6 year old daughter lived in a village.
while they were strolling one evening they came near a river that had a rope bridge on it.
they were to cross that bridge
the father ordered his child "hold my hand,while we cross the bridge"
the daughter said " no papa,u hold my hand"
the father was amused and he said " what difference does it make?"
the child said very innocently yet firmly
"papa if i hold your hand and something wrong happens i may leave your hand u hold my hand no matter what happens u will never leave my hand."
the father was touched by the trust bestowed upon him by his darling daughter.he held her hand and together they crossed the bridge safely.
each one of us needs one such person on whom we can completely rely on.
it can be a parent,spouse,child ,friend or may be some distant relative.
and the best part is GOD has given
each one of us that one person with whom we share everything , in whose company we are carefree , we know whatever happens this person will be there to take care.

My niece who is a typical teenager declared to me that she cannot live without her friends.
They meant everything to her and as she said this I myself was transported back to my school and college days where friends were nothing less than semigods.

BUT then something struck me more

At different stages in ones life we come across people without whom we feel our world would end that point.
It would be a sad place to live in.
Parents , friends , lovers , spouses , children ,- to name a few we think at different stages in our lives we cannot live without
But as I thought some more I realised that all these are external influences they may have a significant impact on the way I lead my life but definitely not permanent.
Life moves on............with or without them
We meet different people along the journey
we hold dear some , we forget many.

But ultimately

WE cannot live without ourselves , our knowledge (i am not using the word education here,they are different)
If we dont enjoy our company our life would be miserable sooner or later.
We will be frustrated , sad , blame others for our depressive state
You must love the person u see in the mirror.
For that u have to pursue things that nurture your mind,body and soul.
The sooner we realise this and start working on it each day of our life would seem more worthwile.
I hope someday my niece will also realise this and construct her life accordingly..........till then I let her enjoy the best , happy ,carefree days of HER TEENAGE LIFE

"......can we twist......"

Writing this post in very unusual situation.
Usually people write in peaceful atmosphere but i am typing this with DJ playing right under my window,there is a wedding tomorrow in my building and people are enjoying to the hilt.
As I am typing this even my body is steadily shaking to the foot tapping numbers played down
( multitasker I am,u see).
Music always has this kind of effect on me.
It transforms me to another world.It is estacy.
Sad times , happy times , romantic times , stressful times , anytime is music time.
Give me any situation and I will give u a song to match that mood.
It evokes those frequencies in me that may be match with the forces of universe that satisfies the love for life within me.
Music is passion, its life itself.
Everything around us is musical if u have ears for it-----our heartbeats , the swishing of leaves , the dancing waves , revolving fan , "OHM" which we Hindus believe, in which the soul ultimately resides...
Even our SILENCE has sound of its own and it is heard and understood by the people who love us
So while u think more about the magic of music in your lives I shake a leg to the tunes of "...can we twist........."
