If at all my words live beyond me..

I am not comfortable with writing poetry without a definite rhyme scheme....But somehow penned these lines this Saturday afternoon with music scattered here and there. Who can stop heart from doing things it wants to do?....so the poem


If at all my words live beyond me..
You too will live in them….vibrant, radiant as ever
In all my little joys…which left me and never came back
In all my pains..which I proudly won over
Yes you were there…very much there
Igniting my thoughts..helping me dream!!!!

You lived in all my stories untold
In all those secrets…which my heart dared not share
In all my truth and lies…you were there
Hiding behind the dying sparkle of my eyes….
In all those elusive blissful moments….under the October sky
You stood there…still… unmoved.. Inspiring…..
Inspiring the rhythm of my heart
Creating music…unabated,unknown,unheard…

And my music played on…with your notes entwined
Instilling life to my loneliness…
Bringing back all those paper boats…which I set on sail once
Ah! The demons of complacence
I have overpowered them all…have learnt to dream big
So I dream and pray…

If at all my music defies death…
And lives beyond me…pristine in its innocence
You too will live my dear…in all my words…in all my music
Radiant and vibrant as ever……………..

Loved it!!!!

If at all my voices lives beyond me, you will know that even in the darkest moment under a cloudy sky, or in silence of the night, they will keep saying: "keep walking"... :D

@ Anorak- Thanks!

You kept asking me to walk...and I kept walking...till the end of this road...feet pained...soul exhausted....alone I walked...treaded this trecherouos terrain..in quest of love. This is the end of road now...and you still urge upon me to walk...? If I have to go beyond this dead end ...i need wings to fly... Enough of walking now......have to learn flying :D

@Tulika di- The very concept of love is spiritual in itself. We have shared many beautiful moments together...and we have shared many secrets..you know me and my writings quite well.....so your feedback is always awaited and much valued :)
