Shattered Dream: a Bride story

Come near me, my love.
Come and hold my hands.
I've been merrily waiting for you.
Can you hear that wistful piano sound?
Everyone had gathered, prayers are spoken. 
 
Come near me, my love.
Come and sit on my side.
Why can't you speak a word?
Don't you think I look beautiful in this trousseau? 
Now, wear me the ring, for I can't wait to say I do.

Come near me, my love
Come now and gaze on my face as you usually did.
Oh I wish I could dry your tears,
I wish I can smile and whisper in your ear
How grateful I am for the moments we had.

Come near me, my love
Come now and bring me flowers
Hand me a perfect bouquet of love.
Because I did love you until my end
And I will be blessing you, even in this death.

Happy Birthday, Mom

Happy birthday, Mom
I wonder how many years have passed by
Since I gave you my first tenuous smile 
Since you steadied my first faltering step
Since the first time I called you "Mommy"
You are the place I came from
You are my first home
You are an angel in human form
Who lives inside my laughter
And crystallized in my every tear drop

I want to thank you 
For your heart, faith and hope
For teaching me right from wrong
For your tender care and warm hugs
For all your steadfast love
For filling my days with rainbow lights
For all the times we have shared
For always being there in my time of need
For helping me deal with life's stresses
For helping me accept my defeats
For everything you have done
For you made me a woman I am

One birthday after another
They seem faster each year
I just want you to know that
The years you devoted to me, 
You can trust, were worthwhile.

Happy Birthday, Mom.
You are the best Mom a daughter could have.

Steel Butterfly

A weak worm hatched
From an egg that is fragile
Trying to survive the world
Full of predators and guile

Romanticsm has been just an instrument
To be confined in the ego
And a faint serfage
On behalf of love upon herself

So she claims herself
No longer merely a companion
Metamorphosed as time goes by
A mild steel butterfly

Dear Gabriel

I haven't notice you for so long
You were there, another piece of scenery.
For a while I didn't realize 
How absolutely amazing you are.

I was scared to show my feelings
I was afraid to share my thought.
Then you opened me up to the world
What a different me, you've made.

Flew down from above, God sent you here
To someone who needs, someone like myself.
With a kind smile on your face
You've made my life, a much brighter place. 

Dear Gabriel, my angel
You are truly a messenger of God.
For you helped me understand His message
That this life is worth to be loved.




*Dedicated to Gabriel ~ for being such a nice friend of mine

The Tiger of Bangladesh

Between the Indian plains and the hills of Burma. Protected by the affection of its three guardians, The Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. From there - this story began. On a grassland full of hopes and dreams. Right at the edges of Brahmaputra river. Lying there without any wheezes, A sad and lonely royal bengal tiger. He remembers the smell of the Sal trees, In Bhawal Park near Dhaka, his place of birth. He remembers the sounds of peacocks, elephants, and deers His heart wish they were not yet became a myth. He has been a part of Pohela Boishakh feast. When people bathe early and dress in fine clothes. All the men put on their kurta, or the finest lungi at least While women dress in sharee, letting their beauty to be exposed. Tears streamed from his cheek. As the old tiger weep. A momentary recalled the legends of his ascendant. The story of the one whose once Sultan beloved, And the one whose survives the liberation war in 1971. The tiger now stood, underline his courage and chivalry. "Will this liberty be felt by my offspring?" his mind fly. Despite the poverty, instability, and all its vulnerability, There is more to Bangladesh than meets the eye.

Broken Promises

On a clear blue sky

Two doves fly, sadly unpaired

Broken hearted love.

A Patient and A Nurse

I'm hospitalized and there was a nurse named Jane
She said I need plenty of sleep for my health attain
She took samples of my urine and then replaced the infusion
She gave me my medicine and always checked on my condition
And every time I tried to sleep, her present made me awake again!

Virtual Love

A boy and a girl accidentally met
Through the famous world wide web
They were virtually dating
And soon the boy is screeching:
"I've found my lost virtual rib! Yep!"

Deadly Shoe

There was a charming prince searching for a bride
He wants Cinderella to be his future wife
She rushed home before midnight and the prince goes for a tag
But he stumbled on her shoe and the stairs broke his head
And poor Cinderella must clean the chimney for life
