You.

Its humid in here.
The air is heavy, or is it my heart ?
I slip in and out of consciousness.
I feel some frantic movement around.
But it no longer bothers me.
I see you - younger, smiling, happy.
I try and smile.
Vision eludes me and I drift to sleep.
You are there - in a dandelion garden.
You look at me.
You say something.
No sound reaches my ears.
You smile and start running away.
Pausing to look at me.
Strength fails me. I cannot manage to move.
Suddenly I realize I can run.
I run towards you.
Stretch my hand to you.
Did you slow a bit ?
I finally grasp you.
It feels warm and strong.
Like ages ago.
I look at my fingers too.
They seem to be young too.
No more wrinkled,shaky and weak.
I realize we are running really fast.
I laugh loudly.
You join me.
We run together.

I CANNOT REMEMBER MY MOTHER ~ Rabindranath Tagore

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.


I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.


I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.
