About Love

Blow a whisper on the flicker
Cover it with dried leaves and twigs
Whisper till the flame grows taller
Let it burn your anguish and grief

__________

Smiles as smooth and sweet like wine
They quench my thirst for love and care
Come fill my cups, the heart and mind
Redeem me from the gloomy snare

__________

The long gloomy nights have died
When the sun rose in your lips
The wells of sorrow have dried
When your warm lips touched my cheeks

__________

Your heart echoed a wrath so loud
You cried I left because I must
My eyes shed tears my friends deride
Why leave the one your heart desires

__________

A poem’s a song that must be felt
The mind wouldn’t fathom its depth
Only the heart can scale its breadth
The mind’s too dumb to comprehend

__________

Those beads streaming down your cheeks
Strike my heart like painful whips
Pains I wrought that wreak you tears
Twinges my soul causing me grief

__________

The songs the wind breathes to my ear
Songs exhorted by Cupid’s cheers
In every note and rhyme I hear
Strains of our laughter and tears

__________

There’s a wish I breathe to the wind
An appeal to the Lord my King
If to meet again we’re destined
May the glint of love go burning

__________

In deep recessess of my mind
Our sweet memories are confined
In melodies balladeers hum
The beats of our hearts are entwined
