My Husband Came Up Missing


My husband came up missing, I`ve looked all over the place.
Under the couch, in the closet, theres not a single trace.
He was home when I went to work today, I heard him snoring.
My neighbor 3 blocks away, said he heard that he was exploring.

It doesnt make any sense, why would he go away.
He didnt bring any luggage with him, where would he stay.
Ive checked in the bathroom, I even looked in the shower.
I looked inside the frigerator, and underneath the flower.

My husbands got to be somewhere, his car is still at home.
I checked the bed and under the covers, I even checked his comb.
Now I`m frantic looking everywhere, he`s got to be playing tricks.
I heard a noise in the wall, so I tore down all the bricks.

Then a neighbor walked in the front door, and asked what I was doing.
I told them about my missing husband, and how I been pursuing.
They looked at me and laughed away, I felt like a tiny mouse.
They said the reason I couldnt find him, is I was in the wrong damn house.

I Love YOU

In case I forget
today to say
I love you!

In every way
every single day
I love the sweet things you say
no code plays

I admire your strength to believe
to be a man who goes after his needs
in all of the people I have known
you are truly one I will NEVER let go

You lift me up higher than yesterday
something in all my life I wanted to say
I wanted to know I wanted to believe
now my sweet baby you made love my reality

Ohhhh Rain : Shower again

A small romantic rain poem dedicated to hubby.
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

"Ohhhh Rain..Shower again!!!!! "  

Showering in the rain, 
Draining the pain!
Enflueraging the essence of arenicolous sand,
Feeling blessed porting on this beautiful greenary land! Trees were roaming 
under fiercing winds,
Thanks nature for benevolently so kind!
Sip of sizzling coffee With Caramalized sugar,
Cheers hubby to accompany me my gelling agar!
Wanna capture this Driplets of aromatic water nearby lake,
So that I can make an icy snowflake!
That's amazing, "but ohhhh God,  I wish my honey is here".

Missing You

Missing you is like feelings of thee morning dew. The very first time I glanced at you, something like a widow a woman that husband has died. Wishing we had just a little more time. Wishful thinking believing everything you ever said was true shows how bad I want to be with you. Reminiscing over here dwelling on the past, indicating a desire of admiration I grasp. Adoration and appreciation is what I feel for you, longing suffering missing and enduring the lost just to speak to you. From morning till midnight, sunset to sunrise moving into the afternoon time I’m missing you. Arousing emotional response in motion missing you is my religion. My system of belief, therefor you’re an apostle sent by Christ making me a flock of one in your missionary. Leaving me with anxiety and tension I stay missing. Impatient for your fulfillment, missing you is an addiction and psychological dependence. Needing to see you even for a minute, in a recession I remain unchanged retain missing you.

Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love

A small poem “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” wrote by Mrs. Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

 “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” 

Seating nearby valley side,
Astonished by seeing a nature's serene beauty. 
Amidst Grassy hills,
zigzagically mounted on the stupefying homeland.
Pristine Water, Sliding from the highest peak,
Flowing in its own way,
Wondering about its challenging destiny.
Love the way you are.
I owe you for myself!!

Wind's whispered, Cheering in its ain way.
Chanting of music beats,
Recited with a soothing intonation.
Birds speaking eloquently..
Dazzling due to marvellous rainbow..
Love the way you are,
I owe you for myself!!

Amazing and enamoured environment aroused my emotions,
Feeling Shy to express.
Missing my dream person,my Mr.Adam.
Versatile persona where are you?
Come here and hug me.
Fuel me up with spirit.
Gift me a smile.
Until forever fades away, Endure me.
Love the way you are..
I owe you for myself!!

Finished dropping stones in water.
Gladly waiting for your arrival.
Testing patience is all enough now.
Wanted to feel the gist of love.
Desire to fulfil wish with pure heart and soul.
Auspicious moments provoking to capture 
Love the way you are, 
I owe you for myself

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

The Intensifying love story

The Intensifying love story by 
I simply adore you, my Mesmerizing 
As you are my first love.
Who lighted my heart with full of pride and 
Who ignited the ecstasy towards lovely life.
Who relieved my pains and took sorrows 
as boon.
You made me fall sick in your love when I 
see your madness.
I like the way,
The way you gazed at me and my smoky 
The way you smiled at my mystifying and 
enigmatic appeal.
The way you every time praises me.
The way you galvanized me and proved 
the meaning of life.
You are the one,
Yes, you are the one who aroused my 
feelings, my emotions.
Yes, you are the one who explored my 
passion of love, flaming in my charismatic 
Yes, you are the lovely treasure which god 
had baptized me.
Yes, you are the one who turned the page 
of my life.
Eureka, I found my true love!!!!
Bewilderedly I did not know, where is my 
love taking me to ??
But still I like the way,
Like, the way you clutched me into your 
Like, the way you kissed my palms.
Like, the way you hugged me, caressed 
Like, the way you rubbed your fingers on 
my lips.
Like, the way you tickled me on my neck.
Like, the way you squeezed my cheeks.
Like, the way you holded me up towards 
the sky.
Like, the way when you inspired me to fly 
so high.
Tears dropped from my eyes and the very 
next moment I realized that it is my 
sensational love. My true love. Then I 
decided that no one had right to do this 
except you. If you want to know the 
reason?? If yes??
Yes, because I seriously fell in love with 
Yes, because you are the one to whom god 
had assigned me to.
And here comes the Swifted instance 
When, the moment you wore the golden 
ring in my finger and I was happily waving 
Just can’t forget the time when our long 
lasting friendship turned into lifetime 
It was just the blooming of two lover’s 
indicating the herald of the marriage. It 
means a lot for any girl in this amazing 
And yes, you will always find my heart 
topped with love showered only for you. 
For you!!
And till my last breathe, my heart beats, 
beating for you, only for you SUYOG!!
In fervour I wanted you to be mine forever, 
We both sojourned in each other soul so 
deeply that we just can’t wait for a single 
second, unless and until, we share what is 
running in our mind. It’s just because we 
are so much accustomed to each other 
I Love you, adore you, adore you forever 
my Love.

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

Missing the Man in the Hat

It was early one morning, when you arrived..
You entered the restaurant and I noticed your stride..
Your manner of dress was quite elegant.. and ..
It appeared you were having breakfast...
With a very important guest..
Seated at the table, and I couldn’t help but notice,
The strange thing you did , when you removed from your purse..  
An old and tattered faded hat..
You took it lovingly in your hands and..
Proceeded to give it a kiss..
As you placed it across from where you sat...
I knew it belonged to someone you missed..
Then you did something strange...
You did a smile and a wink.. 
Poured two cups and I began to think....
Perhaps the car was being parked,
And soon your friend would join you..
As I sat and watched you seemed to be...
Engrossed in a conversation...
The twinkle in your eyes and the smile on your face..
Sent the message you were in a happy place...
Then you got out of your chair...and hugged the air..
And left the same way you came...but ..
I heard you say as you walked away..
Same time..same place next year ?

Distant Love

The hours dwindle slowly by- 
When I want you by my side. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath 
As you kiss away my pride. 
The anger melts away, 
When I'm held within your arms.
My balance quickly faltering;
As I fall for all of your charms.
The weeks are always longer-
When I don't get to have you near.
Wishing that I could run to you- 
The distance heightening my fear. 
The hours go by rapidly-
When you are finally home. 
 Leaving me all by myself;
With my thoughts to roam. 
The cycle starts all over- 
I'm wishing that you were free. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath. 
Until you come right back to me.

3000 miles from 3am

You're 3000 mile away
its 6 am
I'm in my own bed
dead asleep
my phone rings
its 3am
but your voice could wake me from a coma
you're 3000 miles away
and its only 3am

The warmth of your afterglow lingers

                        Even when we are apart, I feel you, deep inside of me

                                      Your love is a raging fire, so strong

                               it leaves an afterglow even when you're gone.

                   The warmth of your afterglow lingers, heating me to the core

                    Your essence penetrates me, fills me up through the pores

                   Even when I'm cold outside, I'm warm inside, because of you

                My heart beats in time, counting the days, when we'll be together
                     No matter how much time passes my love won't grow cold

                        because our love is a fire, my heart burns with desire,

                        ignited by the embers that linger, from your afterglow.

and the sun caresses

Going Fast

Caught with glances past
Holding memories going fast
Faces lost pasts caught
I am sorry but I have no memory 
Of any times with you

As good as you look
Your only a odd felt hook
And what we had is now only you
As I open a new book
You would be some thing new

Yes I remember
But theres nothing that I feel
Here to remind me, nothing now here to do
I have nothing but pains for the memory
Your not even a fact or a smell
So untill you are actually bold
I will count you as cold
Some where in a dream I can't hold

Voice Of My Heart

Daniel, My Loving husband
 You are my love, my true soul mate, my best and closest friend.
You are my rock, my strength, my protector and Man of integrity.
You’re the one I had in mind and you’re the one I prayed to find.
You are the person I miss throughout the day, 
The person that I want to be beside in good and bad times.
You are the one who has given a new meaning to my life.
You are the one, Sent from heaven above.
You are the one I put next to God in my life.

You are the one with whom I want to spend the rest of my life.
You are the person that knows me better than anyone in the world.
You are the one that I’ll forever love.
You are the person that supports me through everything.
You are the one that I’ll forever love.
For every day, good or bad, you're always on my mind

Your love is embedded in my soul forever and I could never go a day without think about you.
You are the man who completes my life 
You are the one who stand out in any crowd
You are the one who lights up my world.
There is something wonderful about my husband that brightens my days 
You are the one comfort and love me when I'm sad and down 
You are the man I pray every day to grow old with and to spend every minute of my life 
You are the one who loves and always appreciate me for who I am

I wouldn't be who I am without you.
Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy
Thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return.
Thank you for choosing me to be your soul mate and your rib bone 

Thank you God for trusting us with each other’s hearts.
Blessing us with the covenant of marriage.
Thank you God for giving us an opportunity.
 To love each other unconditionally.
And to have a nice family to fulfill the purpose you have for us.

Daniel, I love travelling life’s journey with you for you are God’s precious gift to me.
I love you with all my heart and soul without you I feel weak, so lonely, and empty and lost.
I loved you yesterday, I love you still, I always have and I always will, forever.

The Widower

What is there too say now?
What is there to do this evening?
Nothing for I am without you,
I remember you, when my eyes first looked upon your brow and beautious eyes,
Your luxurious features and a heart of gold and platnium,
I am lost in a garden of cluelessness, and lost and forgotten.

My heart aches and shivers in the lone days of the mid December evenings,
You are gone and lost without a single trace,
But soon I had lost you for good and could never find you again,
I buried you in the gardens of the dead,
and the tears from my broken heart showered your grave.

Oh now I wish you were here,
To listen to my heart,
For it is out of tune and the orchestra is playing a slow melody,
and the chimes ring me to the dinner table,
To eat alone the lonely supper for the mourning of my woman.

So I eat alone tonight,
The house is quiet and empty,
The butlers and maids have gone home,
Nothing but lone, empty halls,
Once filled with love and music,
keep me company.

The slow music plays in my study,
I sit in my red chair,
I cry and cry again,
I read a book of poetry and think of you,
Not a life worth living without you.

The house of the dead

At the doorstep the little girl sits
Misled by a false hope
Daddy will come soon
And gather into his arms his sweet dove
What will he bring for her today?
A flower? A bar of chocolate?

The young wife grows silent as the night
Grief pouring out of her eyes
Her youth, her dreams lost 
Just like that, in a flash
Wishing she could be like the little girl
Too young to understand death and demise

Shuzbee wonders why his master aint home yet
His wagging tail drops down
His ears alert to pick up the silliest sound
Its time to play fetch
Shouldn’t master be walking up the path right now?
Flattening the grass?

A silence hangs over the house
Death eminent from a mile away
The air is heavy
Deprived of breath
A step into the house of the deceased
And you feel the chill of the dead

No More

No more kissing you insanely
Feeling passion blush across my body
The warmth of your hands to guide me
No more feeling your heart beat next to mine
The sweat of our bodies meeting, cling
Cling onto one another lost becoming one
No more, rhythmic lovemaking in our own time.
Lost in our own obtuse formation of tangling 
Struggling to please each others' fixation
Delighted and thrilled 
No more to you the man I love
No more love

Tragic Love

I’ve never felt like this before,
I’ve never loved a man.
I’ve never felt completely safe
Just by holding someone’s hand.

I can’t believe we lasted so long,
What do you have there?
I can’t believe you’re on your knee
So this is how much you care.

I love you so my dear,
Enough to say yes.
I love you to the ends of the earth.
So much, I’ll even wear this dress.

Why are we fighting like this?
Won't you please sleep next to me?
Why don’t you come home on time?
I’m too scared to face reality.

How did this happen?
I can’t believe I was so stupid.
How could I not have seen?
I though it had been the work of Cupid.

Now my heart is shattered.
While your heart is just fine.
Now I'm all alone again,
Knowing you were never mine.

I’ll never fall in love again.
You’ve destroyed me.
I’ll never trust another man.
Seeing as you’re left with ALL our money.

I must thank you though.
You’ve taught me a lesson I hold quite dear.
Never fall in love.
And never believe the words that you hear.

My heart is so broken 
It's tearing me up inside 
With all this distance between us 
I feel so  far apart and un-twined 
We are not as we should be 
There is just too much space 
How can we have the closeness 
We did way back in the day 
I lay in my bed and think about you 
I love you so much I don't know what to do 
I feel your warmth at my side 
The pain In my heart moves to my eyes 
So far away yet always so near 
You are the reason I am still here 
With every breath that I take 
Every beat of my heart 
I never want to be apart 
I Waite and wish for it to be just me and you 
I tried so hard to like her 
And  still trying too 
you have no idea but, 
It's really hard to do 
After being your only one for years 
now I'm having to share you 
Believing what you said to me years ago 
That I was the only one for you 
and you couldn't see your self with anyone else 
And that you couldn't love anyone else 
Has broken my heart in two 
I feel like you let your self stop loving me 
enough to love her 
And now she fills my space 
Where my heart used to go 
All the times you thought of me 
Is Now it's split in to two 
There is not enough of just me and you 
I crave the feelings of you wanting me so bad 
But when your eyes look at me , they look so sad 
Im trying to love you like I used to do 
But when your loving some one else 
It makes it hard to do 
I'm not the only one anymore 
And it tears me up inside 
I feel like I'm dying 
And won't wake up inside 
I miss those day 
When the love was so strong 
I could feel you thinking of me 
Even when your not around 
Your eyes would undress me and you would smile at the thought 
Now u just think I dress like a slut
Is there something I can do to get that feeling back 
The feeling of you wanting me 
So damn bad 
I'm longing for your lust 
I'm addicted to your touch 
for the day when you tell me I'm the one.
 I love you , I always will 
My heart is for ever yours 
Please be kind to It and keep it safe and warm

Long Distance Marriage Part I

Please darling, 
Close your eyes
During the busiest time of your day

Think back to those smiles of mine,
Which you memorized
Those laughs,
Which only you heard

Please darling,
Just for a little while
Stop your world, and remember me

The distance between us is too long,
The differences in our lives are too major
So think of me

My eyes,
My laugh
My smile

Just for a few seconds
Close your eyes
Dream of me

And I'll dream of you

To Drown

She walks along the empty beach,
She looks over the ocean, what does she?
She sees a ship sailing by,
But alas- just a trick of her eyes
A single tear drips down her cheek
And hits the sand beneath her feet.
The sea breeze ruffles her linen gown
And draws her to the water, the water to drown.

A Widow's Walk

When my neighbour's spouce
Goes out to the sea
She is left alone
or a couple of months

While he is gone
She keeps occupied
Going out with friends
Or shopping alone

In the late evening 
Sadness creeps upon her
She feels very depressed
Staring at the darkness

So at night she climbs
The staircase to the top
Looks out to the sea
Until he returns home

Missing my husband

My husband, my friend, when will I see you again?

I've been sent to war, not sure where I am going 
All I was told was that I was deploying

I miss him, come back, i never thought i would be sent to Iraq

I joined to serve my country and make my family proud
Now all I hear are bombs exploding and sirens aloud

Being here in this far away place
I look at these foreign people and don't see a familiar face

I want to go home, I'm scared for my life
All i wanted was to be a good wife

She waits for him to call her
But the phone just doesn't ring
A knock on the door, shatters her soul
From the heartache that it brings

There stands two men in uniform
They ask her to be seated
Her heart weighs heavy with sorrow
Her hopes and dreams depleted

They tell the woman, "He's not dead,
He's only missing in action"
But for a soldier in Afghanistan
This brought her no satisfaction

This was his second tour of duty
And was scheduled to get a leave
This news that her husband was missing 
Was impossible to believe

She's heard about the horrible things
They do to a captured G.I.
She falls to the floor in a puddle of tears
As the woman begins to cry

Three weeks later, and still no news
She's numb, for there's no more tears
She hears a knock, for the second time
Could this be her deepest fears?

Once again two men stand in uniform
As her heart begins to bleed
Then suddenly, a third man appears
For her husband had finally been freed

This poem was written in honor 
Of the soldiers who keep us free
And we should never take for granted
This thing called Liberty

Lonely Husband

The house is not the same
Without having you here
No how was your day honey
Or holding you near

No kiss on the lips
To wish you goodnight
I can't wait till your home
To hold you so tight

It's been only a day
But I want you to know
How happy you make me
For I love you so

Missing Love 
Love sometime is missing ewe 
I'm blue but still alive 
All that rally matters most 
Is seeing ewe my host 
A day a nite a day a nite again 
And worth more than all of them 
A word from ewe to tell me love 
And everyone okay 
The time will pass away anon 
Today into Today 
While eye am missing love.

Missing Piece

Missing Piece 

When someone you love is gone..
You feel no use to carry on..

Memories are the only things to hold onto..
Reminiscing them to help you get through..

Even if you cannot bear it no longer...
Have faith and you will grow stronger..

Love is wonderful; but, also has pain...
When separation is long; more is gained..

Longing to see the one you love is almost too much to bear..
Trying to hang on; wondering if they are still there...

So, it seems obstacles stand in the way..
But, the love between us will always stay..

Promises held in the future; but, will they come true?
With love, hope and patience all will come due...
