Jeevan Bhagwat Poems
The Song Of Peace
Once, you were a pretty bird With the rainbow's colours in your mouth, Singing hallelujahs that were heard From east to west, and north to south.
I am getting too old to Write of love, And yet Each time you come to me,
Tonight the sky is aglow With the fleeting shimmer of northern lights And the fiery brilliance of countless stars Scattered across space and time.
Come child let me teach you peace for you know too much of war and despair,
Beauty lives in your smile, And joy within your dark, dark eyes You are my everything My everything and more.
I am getting too old to
Write of love,
Each time you come to me,
Your mouth, a violet
In full bloom
Your eyes, a sanctuary
To fallen stars,
My heart arises
From the ashes of youth,
With the flame of desire.
