Paromita - Page 4


My father gets quite mad at me;
my mother gets upset—
when they catch me watching
our television set.
My father yells, “Turn that thing off!”
Mom says, “It’s time to study.”
I’d rather watch my favorite TV show
with my best buddy.
I sneak down after homework
and turn the set on low.
But when she sees me watching it,
my mother yells out, “No!”

Mouth Organ

Kaustav found a mouth organ
Among his gifts in class seven, that year,
Given by his dad
Amongst many other possessions near.
Silently he circled his dad,
Staring at the new thing.
How would be the usage of one chosen
To make his small heart sing?
Circling the organ yet once again —
He looked so small in the rift —
Examining each new treasure,
He got excited at his new gift.
Carrying it from room to room,
He kept it always near;
The silvery little tunes he played
Were such a joy to hear!
With years of many instruments
And much, much music made,
I wondered if he remembers
Those first notes he had played.
His eyes lit up as he recalled
The silvery notes, tone and fun —
The love for music he had gained
From that small mouth organ.


Though you are here, and no longer far,
I’m always thinking of you, where ever you are.
Indifferent to reason, ignoring all facts,
My heart is still hungry, even when you’re back

A glimpse of what our future may hold
A beautiful story waiting to be told
Waking me in the middle of the night
Thinking of your smile- “my only light”

As you held me in your arms and stared in my eyes
my heart fell to my feet and I erased all other ties
from that moment on, I was yours all the way
i knew you were special, and i wanted you to stay

But though love comes through senses five,
Love comes from the heart,
For there resides the greater love
Of which ours is a part…………


I need you…
Day or Night, Sunlight or Dusk
Even in rain,
Waiting for my Cupid, my joy,
And my pain.

I require you…
Like the Star is waiting for the Sun
In the Sky;
To see it, to touch it, to love it
and to die.

I demand you…
Never so I wanted, Riches, Might
Nor Fame.
Wherever I go, whispers me the Wind
Your Name.

I want you…
I’m bound to Time (my endless mate),
Together we go.
Tell me recipes how to make it quicker –
It’s too slow.

I am waiting for you…
I myself do not understand
To be true;
Why the Spring is a Winter for me
Without You.


The enveloping nature
decides to take warning
as the clouds turn to gray,
and cloak 25th May “09’s early morning.

In the many deep browns and greens,
Loud chirping arises from the ground,
until it harmonizes
with all the panicked sounds.

The boiling clouds flood the cauldron of the universe,
And spill into a crystal sky.
Lightening flashes in the looming darkness.
And ascending high and high…

A tepid breeze rustles the leaves
high and above,
Thunder claps in the distance
as if a flock of doves

Lightning illuminates the path,
signaling the rain to start
Winds terrorize the trees,
swirling them together and apart.

Water rushes from the heavens,
an enormous waterfall upon the Earth,
Soaking everything in sight,
including a seedling’s birth.

“Rain” it’s a curtain hiding a vicious finger.
“Wind” symbolizes of a cacophony of destruction.
In the mist lies a twisting, snakelike shadow.
Infracting all high –raised construction.

An aftermath of destruction comes rue.
Lives pounded into reality.
Bodies smashed into ground.
Tantalizing the ruins of cruelty.

Many people will never be the same.
Nightmares that will live on forever.
Fearful, struggling, devastating storm.
Will cast everlasting incubi forever and ever.

Beneath the Canopy of GALAXY

Beneath the canopy of moon and stars
We two tiny people sit, for now together.
Love binds them, they would like to hope, forever;
But there is much that such a union feather.

Heaven is so vast; the Earth so small,
Yet large enough to stretch a great love thin.
For love to flourish, it must turn within:
To the single soul that unifies us all.

Within this soul the walls of fear dissolve:
Distance, difference, history are no more.
The holy silence stills the sounds of war.
We love as round us miracles revolve.

We know we cannot live within this shell
Of heaven both above us and below.
Day by every day the world we know
Will guarantee we recognize it well.

Yet there are truths far greater than the sun,
Beyond the blanket blue of every day.
In love’s dark longings, we will find a way
To make our human separateness one.
Love’s a stream that knows no borders,
Passports, visas, lengths of stay,
Laws and papers, rules and orders:
All these lies it sweeps away.

Love knows no color, race, or creed,
Spilling over states at will,
Submerging memory in need,
Drowning walls in waters still.

No bar can block it as it flows,
Tumbling towards eternity,
Gathering wisdom as it goes,
Yearning for our common sea.

Our First Osculate

I stared into your beautiful brown eyes,
I felt the blood rushing throughout my lip.
And as I brush the hair out of your face-rise,
I slide my hand down your soft slender cheek,
as my skin touches yours, our hearts beat wise.

As you run your hands through my body heat
You lean towards mine,
I breathe you in.
And when our eyes close, our lips meet.

Our kiss is soft and wet,
smooth and warm,
sensuous and passionate.

We stop for our first kiss inside I begin to shake
Our kiss, it seems so natural somehow, I know you’re mine to take!
This moment between us it’s surreal and we realize our desires the key!
You touch me on my chest and I realize the passion you stir in me.
We hold each other and you kiss me again as we ponder what a wonder fully exciting night this will be.
The kiss hits our whole bodies like a tidal wave.
We both feel all of our emotion no nice;
it’s a feeling to become the love’s slave.
As we pull away, you look into my eyes
and I look into yours,
we smile realizing that was our first kiss,
Which we dared not to miss.

To My Cupid

May you have warm words on a cool evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
May you have soft words on a tough morning,
To make your paths right.

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

May you have a sunbeam to warm you,
May you have a moonbeam to charm you,
May you have a sheltering angel,
So nothing can harm you.

May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
May someone remembers, someone cares;
May your name is whispered in someone’s prayers.

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night—- (Irish sayings)

Natal Day

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.
Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
“Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!”

Some people give the gift
of peace and tranquility
to every life they touch in rift.
They are blessedly reliable in regiment,
dependably good,
predictably pleasant,
treasured and loved
by all who know them in segment.
You are one of those people.
You are a gift
of peace and tranquility
in my life to uplift.

Your worth comes from our Creator who made you unique
Who gave you knowledge and words to speak
Who doesn’t care about a past success or failure
But only cares about your heart that His presence makes pure.

On your birthday, special one,
I wish that all your dreams come true.
May your day be filled with joy,
Wonderful gifts and goodies, too.
On your day I wish for you
Favorite people to embrace,
Loving smiles and caring looks
That earthly gifts cannot replace.
I wish you fine and simple pleasures.
I wish you many years of laughter.
I wish you all of life’s best treasures.
I wish you happily ever after!


How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?

My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we’ve shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.

My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss,
I wake and cry for all that I miss.
How do I mend a broken heart,
when my one true love and I are apart?

My heart knows to love only you, it won’t let go, what do I do?
Our moments together were precious and few,
but I cherished them all more than you knew.
I love you my Cupid and always will,
I loved you then and I love you still.

I used to know you
I used to care for you
Even though you weren’t true
I saw something in you

That made me to want to stay
I have my life ahead of me
Even though sometimes it feels like I can’t go on
I know accepting what you did and forgiving you
Was what I had to do to make my life right.
