My gifts for today

On my birthday, I cant hep but think about you...about the love you showered me with, about your warm hug and soul snatching kiss..I miss linking my arms in yours, I miss catching your eye across a crowd, I miss falling in love over and over, I miss speaking without words, I miss the dimpled smile,  I miss you so much everyday, even n the days I think I don't....

A dozen dried roses,
In a decrepit old carton,
Preserved in a desolate corner.
A crimpled cream card;
Crammed characters in black print,
Tucked away in a hackneyed purse.
A jacket, moth-eaten and timeworn.
A letter, memorised but unwritten.
Words unspoken and orphaned.
The recollection of a hasty hug, faint,
Yet, relived once too often.
My gifts for today...

Loneliness

Remember my Child,
As death cracks a smile,
All the love gathered,
Is rendered futile.
And at your side
Will be one;
Who you greeted
With tears and dread
Who you fought
With all your might
She who is wise
And shunned often
She who thrives
In your powerlessness
She who is called 
Loneliness
Remember, my sweet child
Hear my plea
Treat her kind
Hold her hand
Love her freely
For she will be, 
Your sole ally
As death cracks a smile

What is love?


What is love?
But all that I feel
For daughter, for friend, for mother, 
For brother, for father and HIM

Love should not hide
Behind veils of vulnerability
Or cower in front of eyes
That see too much
Love should burn us down
Blazing, Scorching, Searing
Till nothing is left but,
The burnt wick of our souls

What am I,
If not Love!
What are you?
