O Yearning…!


The cottony softness
Of my marshmallow heart-
Meltingly greets yours

Where had you been?
All these aeons?

The brittle crust of
Hopelessness took a while
To soften, to crumble

When love oozed and soaked
Me up – from your eyes
In the feathertouch of your
Lashes, your fingertips

In tingling goosebumps
And tiny shudders,

My heart, finally
Learned to beat!

22 December 2009

Just a mushy gooey start to the new year 🙂 In hope of more love to fill our lives, and keep us going through life, keeping an eye out for each other, and helping each other on our way through life 🙂

Also for two special girls, my daughters, Sash, and Abhi, as they celebrate their lives, with love 🙂

And a Happy New year to all of you! God Bless!
