You

You are the smile on my face
You are my beautiful days
You are the curtain swaying in wind
You are the fragrance of summer in my mind

The mist on the ocean is you
The red in the rose is you
The wrinkles on my bed is you
The maroon on my lips is you

You are the golden eyes under the sun
You are the green grass on my shirt
You are the bed-sheet on my chest
You are the shoulder on which I rest

The pillows on sofa is you
The pictures on the wall is you
The flower vase with lilies is you
The hammock in the balcony is you

You are the air I breathe
You are the dreams I saw at night
You are the light when I am low
You are the love I did not know

And now that I have found you, I am all you.

When I love you is not enough

I know you did not understand,

when I said I love you

while  we were holding hands

The kiss I had put on your lips

you washed away the same

without a moment missed

The love song that I wrote

you read and tore

for you it was just a paper

but It was my heart inked on

I should have tried harder

found a way to tell you

how much more I love you

Should have searched for the words

that meant more than just plain old

I love you

But I don’t know what else

I should do

to tell you that I loved you

and I love you.

Scarlet Lips

In that dazzling red gown
scarlet lips,and pink cheeks
when you stood under the 
oak tree.

And the evening birds
flying back to their nest
singing melody on the tree.

The setting sun,slowly fading 
from yellow to red, to orange, to dark dead.

A glass of vine, you held in your hand
and stroked a pose for the guy with paint brush.

The shimmering eyes, tint of green and blue
like an evening sky, in northern hemisphere.

The halo invisible to naked eyes.
but heart can see and visualize.

I can’t explain, the pounding of this heart
I am sure, I skipped a breath or two
when I saw you play with your hair
my jaw just dropped.

What is beauty in this world if its not you?
The hair, the eyes, the lips
your heart, your soul, the pure you.

If I could just keep looking at you 
for life time, I would certainly do.
hold you in my arms, with warm embrace
stay with you till the end of my days.
