It's desert... but it's HOME

I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the camels roam
Land is flat and water is scarce

Mirages play with human minds
And if you dare chase rippled patch
To quench  your thirsty throat
Lost you will be in a lonely desert

Hot winds blow in summers
Days are hot and nights are cold
Sun shines like a fire ball
Ah..this is what a desert is like

While yellow sandstorms cover the sky
Cactus rules the vast barren land
Blooming flowers are hard to find
Heat is intense but hey... it is home!!

My Chidhood Beliefs

Once I was a child with cherished beliefs
Sky wasn't the limit and being a fairy was the aim of life
When Sun had its home behind the hills
And if you travel across ocean you would fall off the Earth

Problems were limited to how to make house of cards
Possessiveness was who gets to sleep next to mom
Dreams were all about fairies and games
Truth was all I ever spoke

It was a time when everything was a magic
And no logical reason to explain when and why
But as I grew I realized
Magic was in my eyes and not in the surroundings

Though I know now most of them aren't true
But I still choose to believe then doubt
'Cause once I was a child with beliefs
And if beliefs made my childhood so beautiful
I believe the beliefs will take care of my heart....

It's not only Love...

The little games that we play
Long night walks
Random fights we have sometimes
Times when we talk a lot and times when we don't
When you make me smile even when I am sad
When we share the little we have
Little surprises and gifts that we plan
It isn't only love that binds me to you
But it's all those little things that we do together
And we do for each other ....

Tick... Tock

Tick tock tick tock goes by the clock
As it winds up another day
Time is passing unnoticed
Stealing all it can from me 
And nothing I can do to stop it

While I am lost in memories of
Beautiful time that is now past
Life shortens with each turn 
Of the mighty time wheel 
Not enough time, never enough time

It is there for a second
That is all we have of it
Then it slips forever beyond grasp 
So do whatever you have to now
Cause time has its own plan for tomorrow 

And our plans aren't its priority 
And never will be....
