Belief

20 Comments

It’s Spring-
Wafting music
And fragrance
In the warm air.

Only on the outside.

I wait, like the
Selfish Giant,
for Spring to visit-
My heart;

I wait, for the
Benediction of
A loving thought
that I know
will come.

I’ll wait;
For Spring
will not deny me.

Cannot.

For,
I believe.

  3. Waiting for an instance is perhaps one of the most defining part of our lives, isnt it? We know we will pass the instance, but even then we wait! Anticipation!!!! For the many things to happen!

  4. from despair to belief in a heartbeat..:)and thats the beauty of it..and then I think no,it cannot simply be called a belief..It is a stuuborn refusal to accept anything less than what the heart desires..is it not?:)And so with such a stong conviction,how can Spring deny you indeed?”I’ll wait;For Springwill not deny me.Cannot.For, I believe.”I believe too:)((hugs):) for all the dreams and the fierce beliefs that do come true,will come true… that you share here:)Spring..and your words ..a beautiful combination:)

  7. Devika, thank you 🙂 Vinay, thank you too 🙂 Rakesh, you put it across so well. Indeed, the wait, the longing, is what defines one’s life at so many points in existence, and as you say, though we do know, we still wait 🙂 Thank you for the visit and for sharing that:) Meg, A stubborn refusal to accept anything less than that, indeed is the heart of the write. How beautifully you too have captured it; in a similar vein, but a more passionate one, to Rakesh’s observation too! Thank you, thank you thank you 🙂 I like the strength of your belief too, and how it spreads from those words to the heart! Thanks!!! Praveen, I do hope so too, for everyone 🙂 Thank you!!Sanket, thank you, so very much!
