If ….

February 15, 2009
tags: ,

If my life was a song…

it would be a melody that enchanted….
it would be a tune that you would hum…
it would be a foot tapping number you couldn’t resist…
it would sometimes be out of tune…
it would make you yearn….
it would say sorry for all the hurt…
it would heal all your wounds…
it would compell you to search for your own tune..
the sad tunes would be far…..far apart…
it would sometimes soothe all your stress….
it would make you pause and wonder some more…
it would make you laugh out loud…
it would be the beat that you’d want to join in…

If my life was a song…

it would make you rise and shout out loud..
it would lead to revolutions long due…
it would be an anthem for freedom..
it would sing of peace..
it would hum of all that you are….
it would speak gently in a whisper..
it would tell you tales of a past forgotten…
it would sometimes break your heart…
it would sometimes make you see…

If my life was a song…

you would hear only romance….
it would hook you right in…
it would sometimes be all mushy …
it would make you yearn for those left behind…
the lyrics would all be mine..
it would be a tune you couldnt define..
it would be a gift to you..
you would join in too…:)
I would make you sing it with me..:)

If my life was a song….

it would sing of apologies long due…
it would sing of your passion for freedom…
it would make you slowly smile..
it would bring out the romantic in you..
it would cocoon you in its warmth…
it would sing of a friendship undefined…
it would sing of a connection that’s crazy..
it would make you laugh at the follies of a kid..
it would sing of an honesty rarely seen…
it would be seem ordinary and yet be a special tune…
it would give you knowledge ,the kind that you have never seen…
it would speak of things that you never knew…
it would make you yearn ….for a friend far away…
it would be a young heart that would beat with yours…
it would sing of a face in a land I have never seen…
it would be of a woman who stands ever so strong….
it would hug you and never let go…
it would be warmth defined…
it would sing of an innocence so pure…
it would sing of new friendships forged…

PS:-Thank you so,so much for all the valuable suggestions and inputs..I loved reading all of them.As freespirit says,its about what you want and as Ajit says whatever! just write :Dthat matters..:),so indeed I am back to usual and it feels like coming home….
Poonam I loved your suggestions and will keep them in mind:)Thanks friend:)
Back to long(:D)posts from tomorrow..
Vinod Sir,A big thank you for gently suggesting in the very beginning to not use short forms.
That advice has helped a lot.:)

The post above was written just like that,kind of ‘spur of the moment’
It’s corny and cliched maybe..:)
But search for glimpses of you.and of each other.Some lines are simply for friends who have been here since the very beginning.
These lines are for all of you. specially the fourth part…:) but yes other parts too:)
Go on..search..:D

    If…you can write like this “just like that…on the spur of the moment”, continue doing just that!
    It was a lovely little expression which would not come to many of us even if we tried very hard!

    it would sing of a friendship undefined…
    it would sing of a connection that’s crazy..
    it would sing of an honesty rarely seen…
    it would make you yearn ….for a friend far away…
    it would be of a woman who stands ever so strong….
    it would sing of new friendships forged…

    Life is a song. We sing it the best we can, and then we are silent. The echoes remain for others to hear.

    I think it is not possible for me to better the praise that all others have rightly showered on you…this is great stuff. You better get serious about making your blog like no other and start writing that novel, Meggy.
