Where do broken hearts go at night?

When the day buzz dims

Under the heavy blanket of the night,

And the silence reigns over the dark,

The broken hearts awake to nurse

The pains and the aches they masked

During the day.

Motherless children moan,

Widows and widowers groan,

Mothers and fathers hearts ache

Over troublesome kids.

Hearts who lost loved ones,

Hearts who suffer from someone,

Hearts who lost the dreams,

And hearts who yearn for

This which they cannot attain;

Their pain is unbearable.

It’s loud and deep and real.

Pain so real it breaks even

The strongest of hearts.

Broken hearts go down the alleys

Of their memory lane.

Memories of old, and recent

Ones too. Some are solace,

Some are torture to go through.

Only those broken hearts

Who come back and soar

Upward, towards the heaven,

Are saved. Those who kindle

The hope and prayers, start

To heal. Little by little, with

Every morning new, those broken

Hearts mend.

She Said: Go Towards The Light!©

She Said: Go Towards The Light!©

The road was winding

Curves and Bushes

Playing hide and seek

With the seashore.

I heard the ocean’s call

Alluring me to sit and talk,

As I used to talk with him

Every time we meet.

The Ocean  and I have always

been close friends.  Something

About the sea makes you want

To pour your soul out knowing

It will go deep and safe, and he

Listens clear.

I parked the car away at the nearby

Street.  Climbing the hill to the

Shore.  The hill was steep,

I looked around, and looked down

To the slippery sand beneath my feet.

The path laid in front of me

Was a maze of Bushes and sand dunes.

I reached a fork in the road.  Paths and

Trails right and left.  I was lost.

I still can hear the calls of the sea,

But where is he?

 

Something about the sea, makes you trust him.

As old friends, he greets me

With wide open heart and

Generous giving spirit, he

Greets me with waves of

Cheers and laughter of

The gulls…even when he

Is angry or grim.  “Welcome back,

You are home, you are here.” He always said.

 

I was near, but not there yet.

At the twilight time when

Not many were on the trails.

I got up and stood there and

Contemplated at life choices.

How many trails we got to choose,

And how many got us lost.

 

Only then I heard others approaching,

Laughing and calling on each other.  Giggling

Trying to find each others through the maze.

Trying to reach the sea…like me.  I heard a girl

Calling.  “I found the sea!”  “I found the sea!”

She said:   “Go towards the light.”!

Hope & The Jasmine Tree©

Hope & The Jasmine Tree©

Hope is a seed that I planted

Way in the depth of the soil

Of my soul.  It pushes through

The cracks of my heart and grow.

It withers away and shrinks by

Winds of gloom and dismay.

But forever blossom back

Green, fresh, and strong.

For, you see, my hope is a seed

Of an old Jasmine tree-Stubborn and free.

Flowers white fragrance petals in spite of

Frozen snow, blooms betwixt rocks.

Seasons of the heart©

Seasons of the heart©

Do not dwell in the moment too long

Leave in mind and thought and go

Anticipate  sunshine after gloom

Nothing stays the same, nothing

As they seem.  Weathered flowers

Bloom..again.. in the seasons of the heart.

A Dream Is A Window For The Soul©

A Dream Is A Window For The Soul©

Dare-to-Dream-quote-wallpaper

A dream is a window for the soul

A door, a porter for it to soar

Beyond the chains of reality.

A dream is beyond the three

Dimensions, beyond all boundaries.

A vision, a bubble of thought

To float around what may be,

Or should have been…in faith

Of what to come.

A dream is like breath

To the soul-breathing the air

Of the vast  possibilities of the universe.

Restless is the soul, roaming in space

Until it reaches its dream.

A dream comes true,

Here, now-living a beautiful reality.

Keep It Positive. Keep It Real.©

Keep It Positive. Keep It Real.©

Keep it positive. Keep it real.  At times of uncertainty and troubles, we tend to overcome by anxiety of all the things that might happen-the what ifs.  People tend to tangle themselves of scenarios that are created out of worries and projected fear.

I am not talking about real and immediate danger; but rather I am talking about times of upcoming difficulties-such as separation or divorce, financial troubles, upcoming surgeries, big project or event, new job or retirement, etc.  During these times, no matter how the situation is, it really helps if one live the Now.

Take a deep breath and look around at this particular moment, one will see that he/she still breathing, there is a roof above his head, food that would sustain him/her, and he/she is safe and sound.  Staying calm and focus will enable the person to better deal with the real situation rather than wasting time and energy worrying about things that may or may not happen.  In any case, never ever act, or take decision based on projected fear.

The Messenger Mohammad (peace & blessings be upon him and all the prophets and messengers of God) says: “”When someone is secure in his property, healthy in his body and has his food for the day, it is as if he owned the entire world”.

Again, keep it positive. Keep it real.

Staying-Positive

Broken & Fixed©

Broken & Fixed©

As humans,we may get broken (physically, financially, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually).  The physical and the materialistic aspects that are mentioned may be out of the range of our own control-meaning it may or may not get fixed.  But our spirit(the drive that brings the mind and the heart to life) is eternal and we have a control over it, we are responsible for our actions and reactions… as it gets broken, if we try hard, we can actually get stronger and much better than when we were before the break.

It’s what makes us human-it’s in our DNA.

Good Morning©

Good Morning©

 

 

When the morning comes with clouds of the yesterdays

A wimp of wind had been brewing from way before

Take a deep breath and humph at them until they go away

Raise your chin, rise up and smile from deep down your core

Soon the sun will shine and smile at you, smile back-smile in

deep down, feel the warmth, be content, go ahead face the day.
