The Way I Live My life


when i get up
i look at my lord
fall in love with him
with all my heart and soul
show my gratitude for his unconditional love
reassure my self that i am at his feet
my only possession
i relish the golden rays of the rising sun
the symphony of the wind blowing across
ceaseless rain and the charm of the chill winter
meadows and mountains, rivers and rivulets
again and again, i fall in love with life
for what it has given me
and have no regrets
about what i don’t have
have no complaints and always feel that life has given me the very best
one can ever have

i look at my mother, brothers, sisters and kids
my friends and neighbours
my surrounding, plants and animals, my work, obligation and commitment, freedom and bondage, joy and ecstasy, worries and agonies, and feel so fortunate to have all of these that make life so complete and fascinating
i look at my wife
as if i am looking at her for the first time
as and when i unveil the veil
i find the same teenage love
sensuous and passionate
living and dying her moments
for me and my love
for me, she is the most beautiful
and virtuous lady on earth
always nice and captivating
full of elegance and grace
passionately i take care of the greatest gift of my father, my life on earth, with which i am always in love
this is the way i live my life
I don’t know any other way to live a life
one has to accept it as it is
and be honestly satisfied
with whatever he has
whatever comes his way
without thinking about others
about what they have
for they are as incomplete
as i am and as you are

Something I Look At

i know not
how many deaths i have died
but i will live life to the full
before i die my last death

i know not
how many times i ran away
how many times i escaped
but i will be with life and reality once again

for a change
let me see life in me and others
plants and animals
add beauty and glamour to years
rather than making it just another year

let me dream a better life
hope and wish to have all those things
love, life and concern, peace, brotherhood and freedom which i badly missed over the years

let me realise the reality
all along i have been betraying myself
running away from life
i will dive deep into it, to feel it, feel its warmth and beauty

i don’t remember
how many times i was loved and betrayed
how many times i became the cause of other’s sorrow and happiness
how i utilised my time and resources
let me learn and develop upon my lapses

if there is a time
it is right here knocking at me
this is the year i have been looking forward to
and by all means i will make it count

let the sun come out with all its colours
to have a glimpse of the blooming lotus
the moon and oceans rewrite the lyric of love in the silent hours of the dark night
let the moist earth romance with the twinkling stars and make our life a heaven of glee and mirth
