To be in Love

The silver beam of moon light
Pierces through my heart
The twinkling stars send me
Millions of little sparks
The happiness dancing on toes
And sometimes the pearls of tears
I have been collecting
These priceless gifts for years

I bathe myself
In that light divine
My inner being screams
With joy and I shine
The pain gives me a pleasure
I surrender to give in
The music in my heart echoes
I dance with joy within

The world today seems
How so beautiful I wonder
I never noticed the beauty
How does life bewilder
How wonderful is, I realize
To be in Love
I found it after all
The priceless treasure trove. 

 

My Best Friend
by Manoshi Chatterjee, November 13, 2005

Awaken from dreams
Woven in golden thread
With silver bells twinkling
Wrapped in velvet
With a touch of a wand
Disappears the magic
The sand slips through
My clenched tight fist
I watch amazed
My old friend childhood
Passed by me waving...

The beautiful moments float
My youth smiled at me
Today from far away
I am walking slowly
On the path created yesterday
I am not alone
I will never be
I have a friend
Who won�t leave me.

I speak to him
In my distress, in agony
He doesn�t let me down
He guides my way
The world left me alone
Time flew away
My best friend lives with me
It�s in me, my Self always

Happiness

Tears come rolling down
Remembering the beautiful days
I knew somewhere deep down
It wasn't true anyway

I never though believed myself
Now with my shattered faith
Deep within when I delve
I see nothing but only pain

Those moments will not come back
It was a pure illusion
A mirage I thought to be real
In my state of delusion

That strong mind of mine
Is not strong anymore
Lesson that pain has taught
Every part of my being is sore

I cannot give up though
My strength to fight the bitter truth
Why is reality so harsh
So hard to accept, so crude

Why was it so beautiful
Why it all seemed that way
All wrapped up in velvet
Reality cannot change, they say

Accepting the harsh truth
Though is not an easy game
However hard it must be
Time changes when nothing's the same

So why to cry why to yell
I look within myself to see
The happiness is right here
It's 'I' who has got the key. 

Live Now...

Never complete
Always looking for
A choice, the best
To fulfill the unfulfilled
Never true
Always in a world of illusion
Wearing a mask.

Try once
Stand naked
Bare without make up
And you know yourself
In this vast world
Totality is nothing
But completeness
A destination
Which you don't go after,
A period after any dream.

Don't dream and that is
The destination
Live now...
Now or never,
Feel now, fulfill now
Or never, ever. 

Someone Told Me Today...

I know today
I am not perfect
The golden illusion
Disappeared but
A ray of light
Reached me today
To show the right path
And I know now
I am not supreme
I can be defeated
The path showed me
There are pits on the way
But falling gives a hope
you will rise one day
When I fell I knew
There is someone to see
That I get up to walk
There is someone to
Give me the hope
And I know now
I am not supreme
I am not perfect
But I am me
Someone told me today...

Clouds

The dark clouds
That pass by
I wonder sometimes
How fast they fly?

A bright sunshine
Suddenly they cover
And in minutes
The darkness is over

Sometimes they give
The feeling of a chill
And without pouring
They go on their will

Sometimes they pour
And after they go
The beautiful sunshine
People enjoy more

Sorrow is like clouds
The darkness it brings
Doesn't stay for long
It flies away on wings

To enjoy the beauty
Of our beautiful life
One has to go through
The suffering of life

That's how one becomes
More pure, more true
That's the test of life
One has to go through. 

My Search

I wanted it for long
I wanted it to happen
I see it happening
And I cry with joy

How is life so beautiful
As beautiful it was
But I wander in search
Of beauty again

I would like to have it all
I look for the pearl
In the vast ocean of pearls
I have it but I don�t

Do I have it? Or I don�t?
I don�t have that silk thread
Or the pin I yearn for so long
My never ending search

I am still looking for...
