Details | Lyric |
You were so tired
You couldn’t wait to go lay down
Mom was standing in the kitchen
I was outside locking things up
As you went through the back door
You hollered, See you soon

Moments later the air began to fill with Dread 
Getting thicker with each second of Mom's screams
By the time I got to your side
You laid unmoving, straight as board in your bed
I could hardly bear.. Seeing you that way

As your Grandson dialed 911
My vision blurred and the world disappeared 
All I could see and hear were you
Twenty three Chest compression's, Six breaths later
You opened your eyes and looked into mine
I could hardly bear.. Seeing you so helpless
 
As I held you in my arms
Mom and others began to Pray
I felt each word spoken go through me to you
Flowing through your nephew's Hand that laid upon my shoulder
I couldn’t help but to hold my breath 
And wrap myself around you even tighter than before
I could hardly bear... Seeing you struggle

No one had to tell us how bad you were 
To life-flight you to St. Jose’s was the only chance you had
I tried to climbed in with you, but they wouldn’t let me
I knew how terrified of heights you were
As they closed those doors I hollered... See you there
See you there Daddy, I’ll see you there
 
There were lines and tubes and doctors everywhere
I stayed up for day’s right beside you in a chair
Mom sat across from me and held your hand
The others were circled around us in your room
We could hardly bear... Seeing you that way Daddy

Alyssa sang "Jesus Loves Me" for you in your little Church
There must have been over a mile of cars parked 
Family and Friends coming to say Goodbye

You'd think after almost 3 years it wouldn't make me cry
It’s almost like you must’ve known 
The night you spoke those words to me
That you’d be heading up to Heaven soon
Not to take a nap
When you closed that door and hollered... See you soon

We'll meet again at those Pearly Gates, Daddy
You have our word.. 
We'll see you there.. We'll see you there

Hello dear friend – so – what’s new?
Tell me - How have you been?
There’s so much I want to share with you
But I hardly know where to begin

The news from here’s both good and bad
But life can be like that, I suppose
Most things are going well, though we’re all still sad
When we’ll be through missing you - no one knows

Are you an Angel looking down on me?
Or have you become part of eternity?

This letter will travel very far
By air-mail – on the wings of a dove
She’ll turn left at the Northern Star
Watch for her flying high above
With an envelope addressed “Care of Heaven”
I’ve sent it to you, with my love 

Tell me - do you slumber, do you still dream?
Can you float on clouds all day long?
Have they got more than 31 flavors of ice cream?
Does a harp now accompany you in song?

Have you ever seen the face of God?
Are the streets truly paved with gold?
Do you spend your summers in Cape Cod
Head for Tahiti when the weather turns cold?

I know it’s silly to go on this way 
But I wish you were with me today

This letter will travel very far
By air-mail – on the wings of a dove
She’ll turn left at the Northern Star
Watch for her flying high above
With an envelope addressed “Care of Heaven”
I’ve sent it to you, with my love 

Sometimes, at the end of the day
I think I hear you softly say:
“I’m still here - I haven’t gone away”
Is that my heart playing tricks on me?

Remember that park  - the one with the pine trees?
It’s as beautiful as it was back then
Whenever I visit I have sweet memories 
And pray that we’ll see each other again 

And so, dear friend, you’ll always be missed
I seal this envelope with a kiss 

This letter has traveled very far
By air-mail – on the wings of a dove
I’ll think of you always, wherever you are
And picture you somewhere high above
Happy to be in the Care of Heaven
Enfolded in infinite love

1/ To be continued in many parts

It was a different era and it’s a different story
Of a boatman and his enchanting melodies 
An Apsara* falling in love with that boatman 
But the boatman having a different love story  

The boatman used to carry simple villagers 
From one bank of the river, to its other bank everyday
While moving his boat on the river  
He used to sing those heart touching stories 

His voice in itself was a melody 
Bestowed on him by the Goddess Saraswati*
And his love songs were the songs of true love stories
Sung by the boatman, in full throated ease and beauty
While oaring his boat in the river side stream
Flowing between a Jungle, on one bank side of the river
And long sand dunes spreading  
All over the other non ending side of the river Ganges

Charmed by boatman’s voice and songs
And charmed by the beauty of the enchanting Jungles* 
Spread all along the one side bank of the calmly flowing river Ganges
His passengers used to get lost in the melodies of his songs
So long as his boat was moving from the sand bank of the river stream 
To its Jungle end every time the boatman carries some passengers

One day the echoes of his melodies crossed 
The airy levels of earth and started flowing
Like a soothing cool breeze, even in heaven
And charmed all the heavenly bodies in the court of Indra*
He listened them almost spellbound and became enchanted 
By the echoes of those unheard melodies of the boatman

Urveshi* who was a crown beauty among the Apsaras* of Indra* 
And was much more than, beautiful and charming
Among all the Apsaras of heaven, found her lost in hearing
The echoes of those love songs sung by the boatman 

Urvasi found one day after hearing those echoes 
That she was in love with them and became restless 
To hear the real songs of the boatman, while sitting before him
In his boat in the river Ganges on earth 

Urveshi asked the Lord of Heaven Indra*
If she can go to earth to hear the songs of the boatman
As the echoes of his songs had made her restless beyond imagination
She found that even she can not enjoy the heavenly pleasures
Till she quenches her thirst of listening the melodies 
Of that boatman, he was singing on earth

The Boatman’s Song        2/ Many

Urvashi’s heart was aching to hear and to see the elegance  
Of the boatman, while he sing those melodies on earth 
A great longing started sprouting in her bosom  
To visit the earth and to listen those heart touching songs 
Which like a powerful magnet were pulling her towards earth
Where flows the Ganges and lives her unseen love 

To control her ever increasing desire of hearing those songs 
And to see that unique boatman, who lives on earth 
Urveshi tried to engage her more and more 
In the courtly dances and engagements for Indra
But the more she wanted to escape, more she became enchanted
By the echoes of boatman’s songs 
Which were tearing her heart and 
Making her mind almost intoxicated,  
By the melodies of those heavenly songs

The pleasures and comforts of heaven began to pinch her 
Like the piercing thorns 
Even the dance and music, which were her pride and passion
Became dull and charm less in the wake of those songs
For which she was hailed 
As the best among all the Apsaras in the entire universe  

Heaven seems to bring no joy and rejoicing for her any more
Her dancing steps, which were the symbols of perfection and beauty
Even started betraying her 
As her own heart was no longer in her possession any more
And she found that her mind and heart
Were swept away by that unseen boatman
Sailing his boat somewhere on earth

Apsara Urveshi after finishing her dance that day 
Told the God of heaven, Indra
That she perhaps can no longer perform any dance
Owing to agonies of her heart and restlessness of her mind
And her legs were not in tune with her mind to perform
A flawless dance and song by which she had captured the 
Hearts of all Gods and Goddess, what to say of humans on earth

She thought and thought and found that she can only normalize
If she can hear the songs of the boatman 
Singing in full throated ease on earth 
The echo’s of which were hovering in her mind like clouds
And twisting her heart to see that singer sublime

Where one very rarely finds love, hopes and joy in life
Sometimes, even the noblest souls on earth
Have suffered tortures and pains
Even some have sacrificed their lives in agonies and pains
So that others may see that beam of light

Think again Urveshi think
The ecstasies of the joys and thrills
You have witnessed in the pleasures of
Your dance, music and dwellings 
Which no humans can even think of 
Would be lost for ever and for ever
And you will also miss the most 
Prominent among all
The blessings of heaven to keep you young
And beautiful, without aging for ever and for ever

The charms of youth which you are enjoying here
Would no longer be there on earth
Aging and wrinkles, sorrows and worries would 
Evaporate slowly, the glow of your skin and charms
Time would also erode slowly the heart capturing 
Beauty of your enchanting eyes and the youthful beauty
Of your rising and falling bosoms
Slowly very slowly your dance steps would miss
The youthful rhythms of your legs
And more slowly your songs will miss 
The melody of your tongue and voice

You would also see that your fans here and there 
And dear ones too would fly 
With the passing of time on earth
Leaving you alone without any one to adore 
And no one to praise and to throw even a 
Lovely glance on a beauty on decline

The glory of your name and fame
Would get lost with the passing of time
And even the most close to your heart too 
Would not stand to console and support you
In the hours of your need and time

Can you imagine Urveshi, such a life?
And such an end of your rejuvenating beauty
And an end of your glorious 
Youthful performances of heaven
In the hands of time and mortality on earth,

Here in Heaven you are the queen of
Everyone’s heart
Your ravishing beauty and heavenly youth
And the melody of your songs and dance
Would remain young and evergreen
For ever and for ever
Without ever experiencing, what is an old age
Pains, sufferings and the agonies of departing
From your most dear, near and beloved ones
Which often kills the human hearts
Making them weeping and rolling in tears

The Boatman’s Song 6/Many

Indra again tried to convince Urveshi

But, here in heaven, Urveshi
Even the flowers are born, never to fade and die 
Unlike the humans on earth, who hardly gets a
Chance to bloom fully and smile

One day on earth, you would find Urveshi, 
You no longer remain the same
And there would be no time for you, to repent then
But today, you have all the time to think and rethink on it 

I am giving you sometime, Urveshi
As you are my most dear and beloved 
Among all the Apsaras of heaven
You dwell in my mind and soul, like the most precious
Among all, my own bodies heart
You think and rethink on your desire
To go or not to go to earth  
To listen the songs of the boatman 
Whom you are missing so much 

Urveshi, you are the most beautiful 
And the most charming Apsara of heaven
Gifted with extraordinary heavenly powers 
But your visit to earth 
May diminish or even finish your heavenly powers

If you ever go close and touch the boatman
Even for a moment to praise his songs
This would end your blessings of heaven and
You may not be able to come back to heaven

Inner Conflict of Urveshi

Cautioned by Indra, Urveshi pondered and pondered
To which way she should go?
Should she hear the voice of her heart
Or follow the instructions of her mind
Her heart was crying to meet the unseen boatman
And her ears were longing to listen 
The heart stolen melodies of the boatman
Floating in the air on earth and echoing even in heaven

She felt that her very existence was incomplete
Without the songs of the boatman 
And without meeting that unseen dweller of her heart 


Perhaps her beauty was formed 
By the blessings of God
So that, one day she may find the other half of her part

But then her mind intervened, while she was 
Listening the voice of her heart
And asked her, can she afford to bear the loss
Of the glory of her name and fame
Which has brought her laurels, crowns and applauses
Can she forgo that she rule the hearts of everyone in heaven
And above all,  the heaven has given her the sublime gift of 
Evergreen Youth

The boatman’s Song				10/Many

The beauty of that black horse got doubled
With the glittering beauty of the princess on the horse 
Who was elegantly riding that black horse beauty 
While coming towards the boatman with a speed 
He had never seen earlier, when a lady was on a horse 

Her shining long black hairs and few locks on her face, were
Blending with the ravishing beauty of her charming face
Which even the sunbeams were trying to penetrate
To kiss her rosy lips and her glowing lovely face
And with each gush of morning beams
A blush came on her lovely face
On which hundreds and thousands can live and die
And can wait for a whole life to see that face

Her body was glittering like a gem
Because of her teenage and beauty excelling her age
And her youth over sprouting from her bosoms
From her princes sly top and riding trousers
She was dazzling the eyes of the boatman
As there was no one else 
Who could dare to behold her beauty and grandeur
Which was par excellent, any where on earth

She stepped down from the horse back 
With a beautiful sharp jump on the sand
And stood beside the heavenly beautiful horse
She saw the boatman was standing near his boat
And was singing a melody unaware of her gaze

The moment the princess heard that voice
Her heart jumped from her chest
Which had just calmed from thrills
As she had stepped by jumping from the horseback
And her body had calmed only few seconds back

Enchanted and allured by the beauty and heaviness of voice
And totally stunned to see his manliness, so warrior like tight
She forgets her princes sly pride and got lost in adoring
His song and his enchanting voice
Coming from the depths of that singers heart
Suddenly she found herself standing before the boatman
Lost in his heart capturing eyes

There was no one else except these two
And the boatman could not believe
Whether it was a dream or a reality come true
He too was lost in the charms of her eyes
And even forgot to finish the song he was singing
And felt only that someone was penetrating 
In his heart and mind, deep some where very deep

Indra was aware that Apsaras Urveshi
Was the incarnation of heavenly beauty 
And her restlessness and impatience can spoil
The very beauty of her body and dance
Which was the pride and embodiment of perfection

He also knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would look lifeless, without any beauty
Everyone in heaven had thrown their hearts
To get only one glance of Urveshi’s adorable loving eyes
During her dancing sessions, the junior Gods of Indra used to remain glued
Sometimes forgetting even their breathing

Such was the magic of her beauty, dance and songs
Even Indra often found himself lost in beholding
The flawless figure of her body and her lovely dance forms  
And such was her dancing skills that even Apsaras 
Used to get lost in the sweetness of her voice 
And the thrilling and joy of her skillful dance    

Lord Indra’s realization of Urveshi’s feelings

Indra was thinking, whether to allow her to visit the earth 
To hear the melodies of the boatman or 
Not to allow her, as it could be risky for a woman like Urveshi  

Urveshi may get tempted and may fall in love
With that earthly voiced singer, whose songs
Are echoing beyond the horizons of earth
And have reached even in the sphere of heaven

Indra was aware that Urveshi was the most beautiful  
Among all the Apsaras of heaven and of the entire universe
And if she keep on worrying about the boatman’s songs
At the cost of her dances, joys and pleasures 
It was going to spoil her lavishly bestowed beauty
Which glitters and glow or get pale on a woman
As per the love or longings blows in her heart and reflects on her face

SONG   OF    SONGS 


Let me pluck ripened apples and strawberries for your delight
And put my hand under your head to soften the ground on which we lie tonight.
You  are the white marguerites in my meadow flowing with deep grass,
The melodious tinkling of small bells shaped from shining glass. 
Oh, the perfume of your soul is as a thousand roses at sway
In a walled garden on a wet and thunderous day.


Let me not stray from this place for it is the centre
Of the very heaven I hope to find; and when I enter
The dales of Paradise, let me first see
Your sweet face smiling  - as it does now - at me. 
For you are the heaven I have known
Before I approach God’s golden throne.

The Boatman’s Song 			11/Many


Many moments passed, but none spoke a word
Or tried to moved away and remained lost 
In each other’s thoughts
They were lost in each others beauty and charms
Suddenly they found, they were in each other’s arms
None spoke a word and no one tried to depart
In those most cherished moments, love was showering on them
Thousands of flowers were blooming in their minds
And the fragrance of love was spreading in their hearts

Unknowingly both of them, became so dear to one another
As if, the Goddess of love had blessed them for each other
Those were the most lovely, beautiful and memorable moments
For which one waits for ever and for ever
Life is a strange drama they both were thinking 
Where what may happen in the next moments, no one knows ever

In the meanwhile the princess heard a sound coming from a distance
She got alert and made a good distance from the boatman
So that the visitor may not know, for what purposes she was here
But before leaving the boatman, she uttered in her lovely voice, 
Few words, which were glued with love, 
“My dream man I am princess of this kingdom
I will come back to hear you and your songs very soon some day
But at present I have to go immediately from here 
Please don’t ask anything right now from me”

Without a moment’s delay she moved away from there  
To a place, where she had left her horse in waiting for her 
The Princess rode on the horseback and moved here and there
As if, she had reached on that place, without any purpose
And came because her horse ran speedily and brought her there

She pretended to move the horse towards the direction
From where, on an other horse, her father was coming
He called, O Princess you are here, we were searching you
Every where over there, but could not locate you any where
Very innocently she replied,” O father, I was trying to see the river
And the sand dunes spreading all over here there 
And was about to return when you have come over here”

Indra knew this very well that 
What ever may be the immense charms of heaven
Hidden in it’s never ending joys, songs and pleasures  
There was no match with that of the earthly happiness
Which is found like a blooming Rose bud
Opening its charms and joyful petals of fragrance and beauty
Surrounded all around with thrones like 
Pains, sufferings and sorrows of life
But once you possess it, facing the piercing thorns
You bloom in a rare heavenly joy and pleasure
Which even can not be dreamed of by those
Who dwells in the never ending and fading joys of heaven 

Indra found that there was no way to stop
The throbbing heart of Urveshi for that boatman
And for his heart touching melodies, 
Floating both on earth and heaven

Finding no way out, He thought to put a condition
So that Urveshi may not go finding out 
That a visit to earth could end her permanent stay in heaven
For ever and for ever without any returning 

Indra cautioned Urveshi 
That if she is determined to go to earth
She may go to listen the melodies of that boatman
But she should not go close to that boatman 
And should not touch his body 
Or else, she would not be able to return to heaven
As her single touch to any human would make her 
An Earthly body, which would be subject to
Life and death and mortality 

He again tried to convince Urveshi
Your love for the boatman and his earthly body
Can bring an end of your tenure in heaven
Still, if you decide to be a part of that life
I will not stop you to visit the earth, But
You will miss for ever and for ever, your heavenly abode
And your, never ending joys and pleasures of heaven
The moment you will adopt the earthly pleasure
You will be doomed for a normal life and death
As it is availed by humans living on earth

Think Urveshi think again
Can you dare to miss the heavenly comforts?
Its  non-ending joys, songs, mirth and pleasures
Where pains and sufferings are not even known
Can you really afford to live on earth, like a normal human?

Where one faces only pains and sufferings 
Throughout his life and ends one day in spite of all strife’s

Inner Conflict of Urveshi

While her mind was cautioning her to retain
The comforts and luxuries of heaven
And not to go to earth, which can take form her
The blessings to live in heaven
Her heart again tried to murmur in her mind
Was she really happy? In the heaven sublime
Was not she tired of living in comforts and 
Was not she fed-up with the non ending joys?

What was this life without anything to sacrifice
Without the joys of pains and pleasures after sufferings
Where everyone meets, but no one departs
Where everyone sings, but no heart rejoice
Where everything is gained, without ever any loss
Where seasons remain same, without any change
And never the heart moves, to sing a sad song
Where no Koyal* sings, its melodies in spring
Where no flower fades and always remains the same
Where no one feels tired and no one ever retires
Where no one fails and no one wins

Urveshi’s mind felt fed-up with these never ending comforts
Her heart exclaimed in utmost uneasiness and pain
Even these non ending comforts are useless 
Without love, loss and gain 

Urveshi’s decision

She made-up her mind to at least go to earth
To listen the songs of the boatman first 
Songs of the boatman, for which she has fought
So much so, with her mind and heart 

Lord Indra’s reaction

When Indra came to know
The decision of the heart of Urveshi
He was stunned for a moment
As the decision was beyond his imagination
His mind could not conceive 
That someone can think like this
And can take such a dooming decision
It was beyond his mind and imagination 
That Urveshi can decide to leave the heaven
Which is her most prideful possession
And a place for which every one prays
And waits and waits to find such an abode of 
Their hearts longings and wishes

Indra knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would loose its luster and shine
As its prime beauty would no longer be inspiring to smile
Or would no longer be dancing 
To enjoy the songs of Urveshi

Urveshi’s Visit to Earth 

While on way to the earth from heaven
Urveshi was still thinking and trying to find a way
How to go close to that boatman’s voice
Whose song echoes had already 
Captured her mind and heart so tightly

The Boatman’s Song 8/Many

Urveshi finding no way out 
Remembered her nymph friend Tarang*
She knew that Tarang can help her to find a way
To go close to that boatman, whom she has started loving so much
For hearing those heart touching melodies 
Which had changed her life like a magic in heaven

The moment Urveshi remembered her friend Tarang*
The airy Tarang* heard her hearts voice and 
Immediately came near her friend Urveshi
She murmured in her ears,
“O Yes, my darling crown princess of heaven,
I am here with you to help you, O immortal beauty divine,
Whose glance only can kill even the bravest of brave kings,
In heaven or on earth, even without a drop of Hemlock wine

The moment Urveshi heard the voice of her nymph friend Tarang*
Smile returned on her face with a blush, which brightens the 
Beauty of a woman, irrespective whether she is on earth or in heaven
Urveshi briefed her friend Tarang* 
About the longings of her heart for the boatman and his songs
And told her that, she finds no pleasure now in heaven
Ever since she has heard the echoes of the boatman’s songs

Nymph Tarang after listening the story of Urveshi
Told her to wait there only, till she returns after seeing the boatman

Invisible Tarang took leave from Urveshi 
And vanished from their on her wings 
To see and meet the boatman on earth
Tarang using her extraordinary powers
Located the boatman’s boat,  near the bank of river Ganges
She came near the boat, where the boatman was waiting
Looking at the sand dunes, as if he was waiting for something
His face was grim and his eyes were trying to find someone

Tarang got charmed by seeing this wonderful & handsome Youngman
Although till then, she had not heard even a word of his voice
About which her friend got so much enchanted and charmed
That she even left her permanent dwelling place like heaven, 
To see him and to hear his songs, on a place like earth

Tarang decided to wait till the boatman moves his boat
So that she may gets a chance to hear those wonderful enchanting
The thing which was left, was reading the boatman’s mind 
For which Tarang decided to wait for a while

When the wooden cover is set over me the darkness will prevail forever. Before the light is gone and takes away my song and spirit, I 
wish for time  to play my tune, then play it one more time.

No lyrics blend in, only a most beautiful voice sounding as though 
it was coming from the heavens to usher me to the gates.
If one would close their eyes and listen to the music, the floatation of
body and soul seem to be suspended while making the transition to the hereafter. 

But before that lid is closed and the light disappears I’ll set a flame to a candle that will not extinguish during my ascension.
I will continue my journal in preparation to read to my cats that wait for me. 

As I read to them they drew up their paws to wipe away my tears that flowed which stemmed from the joy of reuniting. Cuddling creates harmony which blends with their purring. 

Love was shown by their returning paw touches. They have listen to this music before and now while we lie together again, the music will once again play.

For 47 years and 2 weeks
He was there by my side
Then the sad day came
When he up and died.

On my way home he was there
And as I turned onto the road to home
Garth Brooks began to sing "The River"
It's message was so profound.

Then at breakfasts some songs they'd play
Were messages to which I could relate
"Remember When," by Allen Jackson
And Garth Brook's song "The Dance"

Rascal Flats song "The Long Lonesome Road"
Could have been his life,
It's message I first misread
Until I opened up my eyes.

With "If Tomorrow Never Comes,"
Garth Brooks breaks my heart
But with his song "Sometimes Other Than The Night"
The message was quite strong.

And then there were times I'd go to town
Where usually business was involved
One of these special songs would play
To let me know he was along.

I'd even turn from station to station
To keep the signal clear
And yes, You are right my friends
One of these special songs would be there.

Yesterday it was "The Dance"
Today I learned the news
The bank had presented the papers on the house
So they could be approved.

Today I learned it had been approved
And Our things we'll once more share
We'll look from our window
And see the buffalo there.

I sometimes wonder if there is a message
In a song Leanne Womack sings
It happens following stressful times
And it's called "I Hope You Dance."

OUR HOME ON THE RANGE, will be just that 
For now till the end of time
And I'll continue to read my books 
Sharing the life the cowboys had 
When the west was free and wild.

This morning when I was getting up I turned on the radio and Garth Brooks had just started singing "THE DANCE".

Details | Lyric |
You were just a fairy tale
a dream that sometimes felt so real
a secret I kept safely locked away
You were there and I was here
and never would I ever dare
that is until one very crazy day
Then all at once it hit me
like nothing else I've ever known
I have tried to calm this storm
but since then it has grown
and I have tried to tame this beast
but I've been overthrown
and know I'm ready to admit
what I have always known
You're a dream that's oh so real
and I love how you make me feel
and this feels something like a dream come true
I could never stay away from you

Caught between Heaven and Hell
I've been captured by your spell
please show me all the magic you can make
And when my body cries for you
there is nothing I won't do
and what you want to give me I will take
Since this whole thing started
you haven't seen the tears I've cried
but I know you've seen me tremble
and you know how hard I've tried
You've watched me struggle with myself
then try to run and hide
You've watched me come right back again
and swallow all my pride
I've been weak more times than strong
but whether this is right or wrong
you must know the same thing that I do
I could never walk away from you

I don't know where this will go
and I don't really need to know
I just know I need you close to me
You said you'd always be my friend
and I will trust you to the end
but don't forget you are my fantasy
I'm so wrapped up in desire
sometimes it takes my breath away
sometimes it seems so many things
are standing in our way
and sometimes I can't tell you
all the things I need to say
but then you take me in your arms
and everything's okay
With your love I am set free
you know you mean the world to me
and I would go through Hell to be with you
because I am in Heaven when I do

                 Wave a sea softened
                  and a pain and a tenderness
                   throw dreams in fascination
                   of the blue.
                   And let shave the waves of
                   Your eternity , oh, weigh

                    ships,
                    with bulging little abdomens,
                    flutter with mahagony pinions
                    and already in vain  expect you
                    to stop the scales harbours 
                    with hot flames for You are
                    open.
                    Far away, far away ,far away,
                    stretched string,
                    heart and frank await the 
                    hymn of June.
                    All sea sisters are dressed in
                    mother-of-pearl garment
                    embroidered of kiss of 
                    eternity. 
                    In the morning hunts them
                    fishermen and revive with
                    breath of their man’s hands.
                    In the evening girls wash 
                    their black tunics,
                    in their blue hearts,
                    their feet white ,who cadge
                    heavy chains.
                    The night is squeezed enigma
                    and ugly,
                    predatory like a bat pecking
                    of scarlet fig.
                    Sea sisters, sea sisters,
                    remember His steps 
                    which go through you noiselessly,
                  and ou swing like
                  bloody wine-
                 hold in His fingers Herod,
                 Pilate washes his hands,
                in Yours heirs
               and they bristled like winter
               icicles bristles of innoncent blood .
               There at Golgotha 
                hearing terrible cry,
                blood gushes like
               wounded river disappear
               like Easter roses,
              in weeds of flushed 
     preditory crowd,
     to open way of
     saving.
     Who is He?
     Do you heard 
     His name ?
     He is Messiah,
     God’s anoited
      Jesus Christ.
      Like little sheeps,
      clouds of candy floss,
      they welcome festivaly.
       Barefooted are feet 
      of lovely swarthy steps
     of the sun, came to bow,
      before You , Creator.
      The sea throws his 
       magnificent silver flesh,
      blue like heavently lace,
       to swallow all stars 
       only Bethlehem’s
      stays inextinguishable,
       pretty like uncreated
      like an apple of not 
      born girl.

How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

I do not fear my death that is coming;
I do not fear meeting my end;
But, I fear waiting up in heaven
until we are together again.
But, Darling don’t you hurry,
savor your time down here on earth;
And, Darling don’t you worry,
I’ll make the most of heaven for what heaven is worth.

But …
How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

I will wait for you, Darling, forever,
but heaven is sure to be hell
until once again we are together
and our love story the angels can tell.
I will wait for you, Darling, forever,
until to heaven you do ascend
and forever we will stay together
for an eternity that will never end.

How can heaven ever be heaven
if you are not up there with me?
How can heaven ever be heaven
if I am the first one to leave?
How can heaven ever be heaven,
a paradise in which I can roam,
if while I am walking in heaven,
I am walking in heaven alone?

A short poetry of Parascending by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

                                                Aviated parachute

 Parachute parachute you flying so high.
 Like an eagle you swing in the sky.
 Flourishingly Waving in an air.
 Your skill astonished me, Take me away !

 A play of lustrous rainbow colour.
 Cascaded by a Blushing rain.
 Sensing the rhythm, flower‘s crimsoned.
 Making me feel excited, Take me away !

 Inspiring me as you without wings swiftly aviate.
 Fortunately you have a flying glance at this amazed beauty of the earth.
 Give me one chance some another day.
 Move me away, Take me away !

 People will greet me, when myself Joe will be lime lighting in the sky.
 Viewing the artistic magnifying creativity, beautified by arduous earthborn 
 mortalizing persona‘s.
 my itchy feet, move me away, Take me away !

 screaking high, conveying regards to almighty and pray for celestial peace.
 Ohhh my spice jet please take me high.
 For the god‘s sake make me fly.
 Take me away or else I will die !

 By,
 Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

John Wayne will be there 
and the steaks will be rare,
in Cowboy Heaven;
And the Posse will be – not  gunning for me 
- in Blue Yonder sky
 
The saloon’s never dry, 
it’s all free - you don’t buy,
in Cowboy Heaven;
Three fingers of rye, no more patch on my eye
- in Blue Yonder Sky
         
I’ll be riding off into the sunset, 
Saddled up on my trusty old steed
But my permanent ‘get out of jail’ card, 
guarantees that by dawn I’ll be freed
 
The Good Sheriff will be 
on the lookout for me,
in Cowboy Heaven;
Keeping injuns at bay, 
sending snakes the wrong way
 - in Blue Yonder sky
 
My horse just won’t care, 
‘cos them spurs won’t be there,
in Cowboy Heaven;
He’ll be swishing his mane 
on the tumbleweed plain
- in Blue Yonder Sky
             
There’ll be pictures of me 
nailed on every tree,
in Cowboy Heaven;
But there’ll be no reward , 
cos’ I’m loved by my Lord
 - in Blue Yonder Sky
 
All the good guys in white, 
and fightin’ the good fight,
in Cowboy Heaven;
What a place it will be - 
and the Whiskey’s on me
- in Blue Yonder Sky

Stairway of Music to Heaven Fragrance of roses and grass dipped dew Moonlit night Plays a solo of romance; “I will love you tonight” With every note struck thunder rages with spirit off the piano keys, tornado spins out of control with the crescendo coming to a whisper and the music plays on as two lovers climb the black and white keys to heaven. A sense of awe, as emotions of both spirit spin on tiptoes of each step of the keyboard with love caressing them tightly as they take each step flowing so elegantly. Voices tenderly laying their lips on their structure, blessing them with the song of the heart that says I love you.

Through the valley, I walk steadfast
with the Lord's hand holding mine,
and He guides me and He saves me
when my path, I cannot find.

With the love
of my Father,
I can face each new day.
With His grace,
I’m lifted higher,
as He parts my skies of gray.  

In the valley, wild flowers
meet my path where blue skies shine. 
Some are news blooms, some are fading,
What a blessing, every life!

Through the valley, I walk steadfast
with the Lord's hand holding mine,
and He guides me and He saves me
when my path, I cannot find.

With the love
of my Father,
I can face each new day.
With his grace,
I’m lifted higher,
as He parts my skies of gray.  

When I stumble, there's a mountain
rising in a golden sky.
At my journey's end, I’ll praise Him
on that mountain of pure light.

With the love
of my Father,
I can face each new day.
With his gift,
I’m lifted higher,
as He parts my skies of gray.  

Oh, He clears my skies of gray.

A Song For You


I want to sing, such a Song for you, 
So the sleep may come to you, 
When I sing the song for you
The fairies from heaven would come,
To take you softly in dreams.

You know when the fairies come, 
The buds of your heart would bloom,
Leaving every clouds behind, 
They would take you on their wings 
On the silver surface of the Moon.

If the Moon is not there, 
They would take you to your stars,  
They fairies would tell your stars,  
To shine and more shine,
Till your dreams come true.

I want to sing, such a Song for your, 
So the sleep may come to you, 
When I sing the song for you
The fairies from heaven would come,
To take you softly in dreams.

Do you know when the Moon and stars tells, 
The sleep always comes
To rest in your eyes.
These stars tell everything  
In their own silent way,
While shining far away in the sky.

I am singing a song for you, 
So the sleep may come to you,

An Ode To LIFE


As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.
