You are

You are the first rays of the sun

That come like light from God

To dissipate the darkness

Hanging around lazily.


A million thoughts tussle in my mind

With the ticking of time, in elemental wonder.

I Think about my heart-felt desires

While my eyes look at the frosted windows,

Circumspect and diffident.


Taking all strife in your strides,

You pull me from the labyrinth of illusion

And whisper in my soft ears,

I will make the holes of your flute,

I will repair the strings of your harp

And do everything possible

So that your stars of luck never fade.


I smile in delight delirious

Like sparkling wine in crystal glass.

My pent-up feelings get rearranged.

They shine in myriad colors.

I pour out my heart in his arms.

Smilingly, he touches my beautifully arched eyebrows

And I breathe the fresh air around

Scented with fresh jasmines.
