Part of me

If I can engrave every single word you message me, I’m sure I can build a stunning sculpture no one can break!

If I can turn your voice messages into musical notes, I can beat Beethhoven’s masterpiece!

If I’m able to record every single phone call of yours, I’ll create a playlist that I can listen to infinitely!

Talk to me…Tell me about what you like and what you hate..Tell me about the moments that got you in tears and the memories that you’ll always remember..

Talk to me about you..your thoughts..your goals and career.

I may not be part of them but your life became part of me..

Patience


It’s the moment when the eyelid waits eagerly for many minuites to meet its other half in a magical blink!
It’s the patience of the heart that waits to rest in a second of silence between two beats!

It’s when the trees sway crazily with the strong wind’s blow while keeping its root firm to the ground; ready to stand still when the wind is gone!

So don’t stay awake all night to see the sunrise. But sleep deeply till you welcome the morning arrival as the darkness vanishes away!

Remember that the sun waited all night and the moon waited all morning for that remarkable meeting!

Patience is when you travel within time; and with time prepare yourself…for the right time!

The Mirror


My heart sinks whenever your eyes meet mine and a thousand ideas flow in my mind. However unable to make itself out as words, it pounds my heart against my chest so hard that blood glows up my cheeks, forcing my eyes to lower obediently. But yours still stare for another comeback.

Looking up at you again hesitantly, your eyes cheer up for my return and with a welcoming wink you take my breath away. And you tell my heart to keep calm? It can’t! Increasing rythmically, I can see your eyes dancing to my heartbeat! 

A wandering boat is my heart and a sea of secrets is your eyes..I can’t know where will you take me so I’d rather stay at my shore..

I can’t swim if I feel like I’m drowning and If I’m lost, I’m afraid I’ll lose my way back to myself..

But I do confess that your eyes are so beautiful that my fish-eyes will definetely fall for the bait you set!

Silently observing the confusion battle in my eyes, with a calm nod of your eyelids, you comforted me!

Excited, my eyes search yours carefully to catch a hint for a confirmation and I catch myself see…myself in your eyes!

Time to live

A day holds a gift of opportunities for you to open; the unoppened ones will not stay for the next day. What is gone is gone..
A year holds a million gift of opportunities; were you grateful enough to open at least a hundred of them? Because what is gone is gone..

Remember that each gift is a life point for you to live the day and year. So simply you were lifeless at times!

Now that a new day, a new year is coming your way, promise yourself to unwrap all of them. You may not win at all times but you will sure lose many chances down the drain if you didn’t.

Enough of counting days and running past them; have the guts to live every passer-by because now is the time for you to live!

At First Sight

Evening was getting over, and I was wandering down the road. Trees began to chase me with their shadows. Fearfully, I increased my steps rushing the moments of being with my own company.

Slowly, a pale ray crosses my eyes and I reluctantly look up following the trace of the mysterious guest.

On spur of moment, the entire place was brightened and everything surrounding me was shining!

My eyes couldn’t resist to investigate the owner with curiosity. And there it is! Floating in the midst of nowhere. As far as it is, I can still see it clearly.

Round, smooth and full of light! Unlike the way they describe it having uneven surface and rough edges.

However for me it looked perfect.

So calm and quiet. Like a still painting; one could look at speechlessly for hours.

My heart melted as I kept on staring at the night visitor.

Even though I didn’t hear anything, I can sense the feel of vibrations reaching to conquer me completely.

Suddenly I felt it moving away hinting me that time has come for us to part.

Despite the night which came to an end, it couldn’t stop the endless radiance that defeated every corner of  darkness.

It moved slowly across the sky collapsing into the clouds. Reappearing again naughtily,  I then realized that it was love… at first sight!

The Fear

Looking up to the star-lit sky, she recalls that unforgettable night. The night when she longed to hear the three words..”I am here”. Though he said those words with hesitance; her innocent heart accepted that little lie.

He wanted to show her how manly he was. So he listed promises as much as he could say, lifting that poor foolish girl’s hopes to more than they could stand. 

She was full of life and she deserved to be loved and to love. But the only fault she was accused of was that she wanted to share the happiness of life with the one she thought will love her to the end.

The “I am here” were just words to shut her emotions. The rest of her days were empty having him beside her.

He left her weeping till her love tried to escape her throat. Her soul was trapped between the cages of her heart and her memories lost to fade away.

As a star falls in the sky, she lets out a teardrop from her eye; It may be a glimpse of that bitter memory, a rage towards her blind belief or the fear of promises..

But still..

She lights up the candles with hope; wishing for another blessed year celebrating her 9th anniversary.

She smiles at her past. How she was; what she’s gone through and how all of a sudden she met him. The one she never dreamt of meeting.

He simply lend her his hand for her to hold forever. But she was reluctant.

She was not sure of herself because she didn’t trust her own being until he showed her to…herself!

He taught her how to become the best she can be. He enjoyed her company whenever she tries to spare time with him.

He enlightened her with his presence. And whenever it’s time to leave, he fills her with hope, joy and promise of staying with her…for eternity.

Through all these years, she may have exchanged and shared her deep feelings but still she looks up with doubt.

The doubt in herself if she can really keep that bond; if she is worthy of him since he, himself is perfect. The doubt that she may betray him like his close friend did.
When she feels that she’s going to give up, she finds that there’s nowhere to go. Everything seems blank without him, everything seems meaningless.

“Trust me”; he said.
She’s been 9 years with him. Still she doesn’t know how to love him.

But still what’s keeping her hopes high is him; his promise, his words, his love.
