'Read Between the Lines': My 'Pomes'

Whenever I miss you,
A tear trickles down my eyes,
If all the oceans in the world,
Flood and overflow with brine thereafter,
It’s all because of you,
Because you make me miss you so much,

Whenever I miss you,
All hues around fade,
If the whole world seems colourless and pale thereafter,
It’s all because of you,
Because you make me miss you so much,

Whenever I miss you,
The birds stop chirping,
The bees stop humming,
If all voice around comes to a standstill thereafter,
It’s all because of you,
Because you make me miss you so much,

Whenever I miss you,
A leaf falls down from a tree,
A flower wilts and a bud refuses to bloom,
If the fall were to stay here forever,
Not making way for spring thereafter,
It’s all because of you,
Because you make me miss you so much,

Whenever I miss you,
A star falls down from the sky,
And the moon wanes away,
If eternal darkness reigned over starry nights thereafter,
It’s all because of you,
Because you make me miss you so much,

You have to come this very moment,
Before me, right here and now,
Relieve me of all wretchedness,
Be my respite, and revive me once again,
Don't make me miss you so much,
I want to live my love,

Because without you there is no grandeur in my world,
Because in your arms alone rests my world…

'Read Between the Lines': My 'Pomes'


In this crowded world,
Where is too much noise,
There’s only one thing I seek,
The solace in your voice,

It’s a desolate desert path,
I tread upon,
Not a bed of roses,
Though filled with deadly thorns,

There is no mirth,
In the humming of bees and birds,
Somewhere, somehow a discord,
There is a complete loss of your words,

There isn’t any harmony ,
There isn’t any melody in any song,
There’s no rhythm in my life,
Without you around,

My shadow refuses to follow me,
The mirror doesn’t reflect my image,
Even in hillocks my voice doesn’t resound,
Without you what identity do I seek?
Because God created me in your own image,
Have waited long enough my love,
Have walked all the while in search of you my love,
The wait seems to be endless,
And the journey doesn’t seem to end,

Come over before me my love,
Not as a living dream,
But as a reality,

Lend me your hand,
And take me far away,
From this noisy maddening world,

Lend me your voice,
And fill me with harmony,
Fill rhythm in my life,

Let nothing take me away from you,
Let not even death separate me from you,
In your soul I’ll be seated thereafter,

Because without you there is no grandeur in my world,
Because in your arms alone, rests my world …

'Read Between the Lines': 'My Pomes'


In darkness was I for a long while,
With the doors of my heart shut to the world wide,
But like a gust of wind strong,
You broke into my heart,
And threw open windows several wide,
And made me see the beautiful world outside,

Because of you I saw myriad colours in life,
Because of you I sang many songs unknown,

Now that you are here to stay,
Seated within the four walls of my heart,
I close the doors of my heart yet again,
Never to let you out,

You put my broken heart in one piece,
With the warmth of your heart,
And gave it eternal peace,
With your words clement,
Like the rain bearing clouds,
You brought me solace,
And cleared my skies of gloom,
With your eternal sunshine,
And gave it happiness immense,
As the eternal spring,


This heart of mine in your hands I give,
Preserve it my love, in your care, forever,
For even if I say I have lost my heart,
I know it will in your hands forever be,

Because without you there is no grandeur in my world,
Because in your arms alone rests my world…
