My Angel , My Man

My angel ,the beautiful bliss of my eternal soul

Your immense light makes my shattered heart a whole

When you embrace me with your silvery wings

The sacred bell of peace in my heart rings

A heavenly ecstasy makes a way from your heart to mine

Instantly, we both climb to cloud nine

On the altar of love ,my prayers weave a wreath

Time stands still and spirits stop to breath

The rising sun is jealous of your luminosity

Does not know , you are an angel, not a deity

The moment ,our longing hands touch each other

Inside our veins, a mighty storm starts to gather

You occupy a special chamber of my heart always

Our nights are starry, and glorious are the days

Tell me ,my lovely darling , why does an angel like you need an armour?

What makes you sad ? What brings you to a corner ?

There will be an end to your heart wrenching suffering

You make me proud when you stand tall and refuse a bending

Men like you

He sits alone in his room at midnight

Having dreams as bright as his youthful eyes

His inventions take forms of drafts and sketches

And his eyes begin to sparkle

A satisfactory smile adorns his dry lips

Then a sigh of peace spreads in the darkness

Would the world even appreciate his evergreen spirit ?

Would his hardwork of years receive due respect ?

Or just taken for granted ?

His struggle to make a difference in the lives of poor countrymen is so precious

Happily he wards off a dream of luxury life for himself

For him the real life means to live for others

Never give up on them my dear !

For men like you are not born every day

Dear God

Dear God , only you accept me with my broken wings

With you , I am never worried what my fate brings

You fix and heal my heart when it gets shattered

I don’t count , how many times it is battered

You make it intact and brand new

Though the process is trusted by a few

You created me and gave me a good name

When I tried and found you , I was never the same

You brace me and help me after every fall

You shower me with the strength to compose and stand tall

That’s how I recognize your eternal love

You gave me the faith to see you above

A heart has no peace, without your light

If I lose you , I lose my dear sight

When I forgive my hurt and embrace my enemy

I cleanse my heart, the way it should be
