Homecoming

give me a hug
for the road ahead
give me a smile
so I remember again
show me the way
down the winding road
towards home

Which I haven’t seen
In so many years
just the thought
brings up my tears
not that they
are worth anything
and there’s not
much to bring back
the empty room
screams for your absence
and the labyrinths
whispers in my ears
can’t help it but i wonder
if you’re okay out there

wherever there is
hope you know I care
and that I forgive you
for all the bad times
’cause there were good times
to make up for mine
and all the mistakes
that swirled around us
held no bearing
didn’t make us fuss
but I miss you
in this cold empty place
doesn’t feel like home
there’s no trace of you.

give me a hug
for the road ahead
give me a smile
so I remember again
show me the way
down the winding road
towards home…

Fin.

Transcendent Bouquet

Sweet memories of you still reside
when it reflects, I cannot hide
a sense of the vibe; ahead of pride
And a flavor of those nostalgias abide.Of a time in my life, years transferred
Taking a turn of good times retrieved
Relieving gift of memories redeemed
an innocence of worship, blossomed.

Glooming my heart out for your sake
Only if you were real & not a fake
I’d have put everything on stake
For that mere resemblance & intake.

Birds Chirping around the corner
Comes inside my room with a screamer
Nothing did I knew any better
Woke up from my dream wearing your sweater.

Fin.
