Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

I would know how beautiful I am

It’s a beautiful dawn, birds chirping in the bush.
Mist of love touching my cheeks and made me blush,
Oh that cool moist breeze gave my curly hair a soft push.
But my mom says I am more beautiful than all of those.

Warmth of the sun making my skin glow,
That little stream in my garden I hear it run slow,
Beautiful fields of paddy where men walk with their plough.
But my mom says I am more beautiful than all of those.

Pretty jingle of the cattle bell, as it returns home.
Merry laughter of the child when it is hugged,
And all those beautiful birds returning to their nest.
But my mom says I am more beautiful than all of those.

I can sing and dance with this beauty of nature,
I can hug and touch these splendid gifts of god.
I can hear and love all these being around me.
But If only I could see, I would know how beautiful I am.


-Dedicated to a sweet person I met this weekend, who had no sight but loads of dreams!

loved ur dedication - to someone with loads of dreams. u must have been deeply touched by that person if u could come up with such a lovely poem .

"if only i could see" - had the right feel and touch of sadness to it in an otherwise happy n sweet poem

It's wonderful to meet such people, isn't it? They put things in perspective for me. Make me think. Dreams are lovely to have. Especially on lonely nights. I love the way you have penned this one.

I was the first to post a comment on this post!!
Wonder what on earth turned a blind eye to it.. !!

Ramya.. Such special people have eyes in the heart. We realize that when we interact with them. As I read the lines you had written, I was imagining you. But the last line came as a wave. I read the written lines again, had a different meaning.

I am in love with this poetry.. :)
Wonderful work Rams.

@Spicy Sweet Friend:
Thanks a ton, You gave life to me!!! Let me explain you why

When I wrote this poem I exactly wanted readers to see themselves till the end and the last line should make them reread the lines to get the exact meaning of it

Thanks thanks and thanks again you got exactly what I wanted the readers to feel.

Keep Encouraging :D
