Rashmi Ravishankar


Until I Saw You


What is that change in me today?
what did that cool breeze whisper
in my ear?
I said that there was no god,
until i saw him in my mother.
I said there is no such thing called
dream until i experienced one.
I said love is not true
until i saw you.

I have seen beautiful flower bloom
without great fragrance.
I know languages without words,
But i cannot see my life
without you as my love in it.

The sweetness of a poem can be felt
only when you understand it.
The sweetness of Ganges is
only till it reaches the sea.
But the sweetness of your love
is something that can be felt
always.

Like the dew drops love the flowers,
like stars love the sky.
I love you till my last breath and
even after that.

Maybe the cool breeze tried
to tell me that i am incomplete without
you.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
