Reshma Ramesh

Vault Of Heaven

I was running across the fields with the wind in my hair,
Lying on the grass and counting the stars,
I was picking the shells digging my toes in the sand,
Picking up the bits and pieces of my life, looking at myself
In the shattered pieces of mirror on the floor
Looking for love in an empty urn, believing all is well
Holding on.......holding on......

Lost in thought lost in time
While the world turned around and time did fly,
With all the things you said and did, running in my head,
This irresistible tug I felt at my heart
Through our silence we found our way
Through the memories which never existed
I took a celestial ride through our hush
Its time to take your hand and ride the waves
Waves of unending affection to the vault of heaven
Holding on..... holding on..........

    First, thanks for the invitation to your 'vault' - splendid job - true feelings always show the warm heart from where they spring.

    And hilarious intro - had a hearty laugh. Bangalore, hah!

    Thanks again!

    When it is for someone.. it will be our blood that we shed... on paper, on the shell of heart

    Nostalgic muse in Nature is always inspiring with renewed vigour to poets like me. Your Vault of Heaven has revealed that sense very well. Enjoyable piece!

    a poem made from heartful dedication
    was picking the shells digging my toes in the sand,
    Picking up the bits and pieces of my life, looking at myself
