I want…

I want to do what I’ve never done before
To go to a place where I haven’t been before
I want to take off and fly up high
Spread my wings and soar through the sky
I want to watch the rising sun
To hear the birds’ song as it is sung
I want to live in a beach house
Wake and sleep to the waves’ sound
I want to be at the bottom of an ocean
To be alone and witness the great illusions
I want to live in a forest with tall trees
Lay on branches and witness the sun’s beams through the leaves
I want to live in a peaceful valley
To feel her warmth all the time all around me
I want to live in a secluded cove
Where the sea comes up when it gets dark and cold
I want to stand on top of a hill
And feel the breeze as if it would blow me away
I want to do so many things
That I can’t even think of, let alone pen down
But what I do know is this
In this life or the next, I will get my desire and my wish.

No one like you…

I don’t remember the first time you held me
Those everlasting arms in which I slept peacefully
Speaking in a language people did not understand
You alone understood all of my demands
Every time I cried, you held me close
Telling me, comforting me you would never let me go
My growing up older does not change a thing
Your love for me, day by day, keeps on increasing
Every step of the way you were there by my side
You alone are the most precious gem of my life
For the one too many times I may have taken you for granted
I certainly was the biggest fool on the surface of this planet
At times when I’m away you pray for my safety
I see the glow in your eyes when I return from my journey
The countless nights that I have spent away
Unable to sleep, you counted minutes pass like days
The hardest thing for me to see in my life
Is to witness tears fill up your beautiful eyes
Everything I am, I am because of you
There are no words to express my love for you
The one person I always want with me is you
Now and forever mom, I love you.
