Heartbeats

Standard

It’s hard sometimes,
to make a decision, my dear,
when your head pulls you one way,
and your heart another.

Nothing in this world,
comes easy,
especially love and
everlasting friendship.

Its never in your heart,
my dear, to hurt another,
but you can’t shield them,
from pain, from loneliness.

Disappointment and regret,
will come and go,
but love will remain,
through all the heavy storms.

If you are not ready,
then say so, my dear,
for your life is yours alone,
we come and go in that fashion.

Lata, Kabir and Haresh,
folks in the bitter play,
but the love doesn’t lessen,
although their roles have changed.

If you need time,
my dear, ask for it,
the answer will come to you,
it always does.

Broken Roses

Standard

As the warm summer breeze blows
and the petals fall, one by one;
dried now, unlike before
brings memories of the heart
that within them store.
White, like snow they were
with a smudge of red amid them,
that brought the pain, I suppose
like the bleeding of a heart
over the blanket of snow.
And slowly now, as the petals fall
the pain fades away,
it is now time to move on;
to start afresh,
to hide those memories deep inside.
I lay down those roses to rest
that carry a heart filled with pain
and whisper a prayer

‘RIP dear roses,
and may the heart that
you shield, love forever’
