POEM FOR MY DEAREST DIVINE SHREENATHJI
Some words in love for my ShreeNathji – my ShreeKrishn;
with whose blessings and grace;
in whose Bhao and Mahabhao I have realized my divine nature; my reality
“YOU are the dawn of everyday to me, the Hope that sees me through,
The Light that guides the way for me, the Love that’s always true –
YOU are the Joy that fills the heart in me
The BLISS that completes the dreams in me.
YOU are the reason for my tomorrows
YOU are the reason for today
YOU are the reason for my life’s living
YOU are the reason for my soul’s shinning.
YOUR love, friendship, grace
Has shown a new dimension -
I had never thought
I’d attain such contentment.
I want to be possessed by YOU.
I want to belong to YOU.
In my deepest thoughts
I want to hold on to “YOU”.
In total surrender and Bhakti
I offer my total to “YOU”.

A POEM: ME – ONLY ME !!
Me and Myself
Is that all I am concerned about?
Worried only about my well being
And to hell – with the rest of the world.
The anguish of pain – the cry of despair!
I am deaf to these cries
Because for me, I don’t see beyond myself
Why should I be bothered?
At what ails him or her
I want to be happy – I want to be free!
The rest of them can go look after themselves
Some one needs my love, I don’t care-
The love lost soul crying for help-
The destruction of nature- The pollution of environment;
Is not my responsibility.
I am me – I am myself
I shall continue with my life and myself
No time to be bothered
With the concerns of the world
There is so much out there I have to possess
I need more money
I need more fame
I need more power
How can I waste time on what gives me none of this
Life is so short,
I have to fill my bank accounts
I need more – I need more
Cannot waste time
On what does not give me my returns….
Does it not describe all of us to some extent in our greed for the material trappings in the world?
Have we all not become selfish and blind in our needs for more of everything?
Are we not cutting the branch of the tree on which we are sitting,
in destroying the natural resources for our greed?

A POEM: GREED – SELFISHNESS..
A rainbow today.
Its not the rainbow in the sky;
That’s just an illusion
It’s the rainbow
The innumerable colours of life.
Represents today’s human;
Jealousy seems to be
Each ones policy;
For money, Fame, Power
Has blinded the world!
Their minds seem to whirl.
Love, Beauty, Sacrifice
Where are they
Where are they?
The depth of love
Has hidden in the dark alcove.
For today’s man
Lies on the surface
To search the soul
Who has the time or place?
Who believes in sacrificing?
It has been named as dumbness,
Has no worth left;
A feeling which all try to push out of their mind.
The strength which it gives
There is so much darkness in every soul!
For the light of happiness-
Seems to be present only in pearls.
The red yellow orange
From the rainbow
Have long since turned grey
Burnt to ashes
In the hearth;
Through the greediness and selfishness
Of today’s human.
SHER IN HINDI : GAM KA PYALA ..
(a few lines for the unlucky in love)
रहे मुस्कान सदा तेरे चहेरे पर
पिए जा गम का प्याला प्यार की सौगात समझ कर.
बसा ले अपने प्यार की याद अपने सीने मैं,
दर्दे मुहब्बत का बसेरा बना कर.
बहाना ना ये अनमोल अश्क फिर कभी,
ना दे सकेंगे ये जालिम कभी इनका मोल,
सारा जहांन बेच कर.
