Lone guardian of the limitless ocean.
Helping sailors in navigation.
Away from dangerous reefs and coastlines.
Towards safe harbour’s confines.
The guiding light to the ships.
Braving endless journeys & trips.
Bellower of the mighty warning horns.
During treacherous, thunderous storms.
Protector of tired sailors’ last hope.
Encouraging them to cope.
In the darkness of moonless nights.
With merciful bright lights.
Standing tall for centuries till now.
Withstanding nature’s fury somehow.
Constant companion to the loneliness of Moon.
Like a friend, a boon.
Witness to miracles of nature everyday.
It was there, it is here, it is there to Stay.
Can eyes capture beauty? Can beauty be beheld?
Is beauty a joy for ever? Even for the beholder?
Does one mean everything, for The One, for the rest of their lives?
Do promises hold their ground, do they survive?
Can love stand the test of time? Can time really fly?
Can love be summarized? Or is it just glorified?
Can time heal all wounds? Can wounds not leave scars?
Not leave any hint of pain? Inflicted through egoistical disdain?
Does love mean the whole world for us? Does it grow roots?
Does it make one grow fonder? Or compiling years make it wander?
Do lives get entwined with each other? Do two hearts beat as one?
Do souls find their mates for ever? Do they exist always together?
To each his own, answers to questions vexed.
Everyone’s idea of love, differs from the next.
What matters most is the experience of love.
Either momentarily or for eternity.
Love heals broken hearts and souls, back to whole.
My father’s or my husband’s name doesn’t define me.
My career or my earnings don’t define me.
My children or their achievements don’t define me.
My education or my social status doesn’t define me.
My clothes don’t define me, my home doesn’t define me.
People’s opinions about me , don’t at all define me.
Warmth of the Sun, coolness of the moon, calmness of the oceans and brightness of the stars define me.
All the love in the universe harbouring in my heart defines me.
What defines me, is that I am a woman.
I am who I am just the way I should be, just the way I was meant to be.
I am joy, I am the reason for celebrations. I am the sponge that soaks everyone’s worries.
I am defined by birth and death, I am defined by myself.
