Theme: Love


Love you have shown me your many faces
You have graced me with many graces

At my birth
You gave me my mother's unconditional love
Taught me how to receive it
With my baby hands
Flailing in the air
Like the wings of a dove

In my young adulthood came my first lover
I learnt about sexuality
What is done in the dark under the cover

My marriage was arranged
I gave myself to my husband
A deep friendship unfolded
A deep love bloomed
That lasted a life-long
Two peas in a pod
Made for each other all along

Now as I age
I fall in love with my God
So is the wish of the Lord
He is ready to free me
From my mortal cage
So I won't suffer as I age
To earthly things you don't tether
A life awaits you in heaven way brighter
Dear God I'm in love with you with my heart and soul
Let me finish my earthly toll
Then I shall be in heaven
That's my only goal

You are always around me
In umpteen shapes, in variable forms
Sheltering me from many life-storms

So are your many faces
That has graced me with many graces

Comments on this Poem

Comment Mam,You depicted a true picture of love.We come out of worldly love to universal and spiritual love after a period of age.God has
managed it step by step love types play role
and after finishing the role of a creature,He call
him or her near to Him to hand over a new charge according 'karmas'.We call it "Aavagaman"or Janam-maran. Rare spirits may free from it.It is all depends upon God's will or
fate.We can't do anything about this matter,for
we are puppets of God,s hands.As He wants to
make us dance,we do all that.A lot of thanks for real description of love.It is bitter truth of this
