A Tiny Miracle

Running errands and talking on the phone, 
I am pleasantly reminded that I am not alone.
Little tiny hands, a precious rounded knee,
pushing and twisting that no one can see. 
Oh sweet child kicking up your heels, 
it is our little secret that only I can feel. 
I look forward to your birth, 
when I can kiss your skin, 
but for now I will just smile, 
as I feel you play within.

Let Go

When we were still together,
I truly loved you,
but what’s happening right now,
I guess we are through,
it’s really hard for me,
to get off with you.
but I know this might be good
for both me and you.

Krishna Rasleela

Why should I live? O Krishna
Without you my breath fades
Into a cold loneliness.
Alone without you, why live?
Pain pulls my heart, O Krishna.
Without you, all purpose is lost.
I sleep, I wake and sleep
And know not why I live!

Looking through the eyes of a child
what wonders they see.
Playful fluffy clouds
foreign to me.
They observe their surroundings
with wonder and awe.
Pointing out things
We've never saw.

Marilyn Monroe

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

My Mother

Who fed me from her gentle breast
And hushed me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
My Mother.
