Passion to write
I hardly remember learning the alphabets in nursery.All I recall is learning, rather singing ABC along with others.
I had never thought how words would become an integral part of my life, so much so , that every feeling felt, every emotion expressed, that of sorrow or filled with glee, that of sheer pain, or of ecstasy, would be hand carved by nothing but WORDS.
Over these years, with every piece I wrote, an article or a poem, my love and appreciation for this form of art has increased and matured, just like a tiny seed takes years to take a shape of a full grown tree.
And here in my very first blog, I offer my gratitude of my 8 years of writing to "WORDS", the soul reason I m here!! May there be many more years to write and to express.....
IN LOVE WITH WORDS
Right from the time I first saw you,
To now, this moment, which is so true,
Who knew I would attach this way to you?
In my moments of aloofness, happiness or bidding adieu?
We have come a long way indeed,
And my love for you shall forever be a need,
You know my heart, more than I do,
You know when I cry, before my tears do,
You know my smiles, just when my lips say,
You know me all, through some or the other way,
Not having you, is like a barren land,
With nature in sight, yet the air not to breathe,
With a life to call, yet lifeless from beneath,
You are my language, you are my soul,
You are the thread, that connects me to my "inner role",
You complete me the way no one can do,
The way "we" two connect, not many, neither do some few,
My gratitude to you, I offer in my prayers,
My thoughts belong to you, which you forever wear,
I' m an open book to you, my life I duly share,
And God up there, knows this too well,
It’s to whom I many a times address,
Until, it was "you", a pearl in the beautiful shell,
My compassion, my desire,
My lust, my need,
You know how "you" mean this world,
And help me know its meaning,
Had I not met you,
Life would be not easy to express,
With its share of dealings,
And today I'm proud enough to have,
Fallen in love with "you",
Oh! dear I loved you all this time,
Didn't know, until a seconds few!!
