Rainbow

I see not the red sunrise,
I see not the lush greens,
The lily is drained of its blue,
I see no colour or hue,
For I am colour-blind,
When my friends rush,
To view the sky in its blush,
When people move out and flock,
To behold the angel’s arch,
Up in the sky, “It looks so cute”,
I feel “God’s so brute”
“The world’s a splash of colours”, they say,
“Can you describe red, blue and grey?”
For the blind man on the road they care,
“This colour doesn’t suit you”, they declare,
I feel caught in fate’s snare…
I may fail to see the shades in clothes,
And the ravishing hues of nature’s furore,
Though I see the forms all black & white,
I fail not to realise that sight,
Is beyond the tint on the dress we wear,
Expressions, moods, a look, a glare,
In gratitude, “Oh God”, I bow,
You made me realise the worth,
Of an eye to see and a heart to touch.

I Miss You

I stand at the doorstep,
Looking at the path that directed you,
Away from me…
When I open the window every morning,
I feel a whiff of your breath,
It’s the cool, spring breeze…
I feel your touch on my skin,
When I walk in the garden,
Oh! Its only a new blossom…
When I walk down the road,
I hear the ringing of your laughter,
Its just the distant chime of Church bells…
I sleep not at night, I feel cold,
No expensive quilt can replace the warmth,
Of your arms around me,
I eat not, I am ever hungry,
For your passionate talks at the table,
I drink not, I remain thirsty,
For your honeysweet kisses, On my lips….
I live not, I just survive,
For you took my soul with you,
When you went down that path,
Away from me…
