To Just Be!


Just the other day
My breath caught
As I met your
Warm gaze.

That knowing smile
Simply lit my day,
And my heart sang
In sheer pleasure of being!

A quirky thought then
Flitted through my mind-
So this was what was
Meant to be – this

Was what I dreamed up
Those many many
Million moments ago-
In my dreams, my hopes…

A naive foolish dream
My young-girl’s-heart thought,
Never for a moment realising,
Her heart had seen

And met, and known
The blessing of the Infinite,
The sureness of believing
In the Wonder of you!

And in that warm gaze
That now touches me, I feel it too –

Every step we’ve taken,
Every choice we’ve made,
Separately, unknowingly
Has led to this threshold

Of a day that burgeons
With unspoken vows
We never need to make now,
For we made them before
Our eyes even met-

When our hearts knew
So long ago, in time;

You and I were meant to be
Just be,
With no yesterdays
And no tomorrows-

Just be!
