In Your Eyes…


In your eyes, I saw my life,
Blossoming like a fragrant flower,
With all its beauty and elegance,
Like a queen with all her grace.
In your eyes, I saw that flame,
Which burnt my eyes to find a way to the heart,
The light which brightened my soul,
The fire which engulfed me whole.
In your eyes, I saw lyrics of a beautiful song,
Bringing rain to a deserted heart,
A melody, so divine soothing my body and mind,
The music which unknotted emotions of all kind.
In your eyes, I saw myself,
With well guarded walls, protecting myself from another hurt,
Scarred and bruised from old deep wounds,
Standing tall with my perfect imperfections.

The Treasure..


A treasure is lost somewhere in deep.
Something so valuable that one needs to keep.
A treasure is stolen by a wicked witch.
How hard have I tried to keep it safe from the breech?
A treasure I had to give up because of the sinister disease.
Can it be a reason for me to cease?
A treasure was taken from me by the people around.
Shall I hide myself when they surround?
A treasure was vanished behind my wrinkled face.
As old I get, should I be in the loneliest place?


At last, I found out how silly I was,
To think even that the treasure was,
Taken by someone or something from outside,
As I found that the treasure was all along inside.
I started to give a smile to the mirror,
First thing in the morning when no one was nearer,
And when I stepped out of the house, I gave a smile to a crying child,
Then it occurred to me that this treasure can be shared to someone in need.
It made my day as it felt like a bliss,
The lost treasure was found on my lips.
