One Day One Life
One day one life I want to live in your eyes,
Where I am not the object of attention,
But the person & subject of delight.
When you see not only me, but also
See through me as to what I am inside.
That your eyes make me feel the most beautiful
Woman in the world,
Yet you are also aware of my emotions’ vibe.
One day one life I want to live in your ears,
My voice is the only sound then you want
Our talks are more melodious than any music,
Our wordless conversations dearer to us, than
any sweetness this world can spare.
When you listen to all that I convey to you,
Yet manage to understand all which I am unable
One day one life I want to live in your nares,
You recognize me by my scent, like always,
Still at times you are curious enough to know
the secret of my new fragrant wear,
Making me come nearer to you, for you to find out
All the mysteries of my smiling tears.
You not only smell out my worries that one day,
But also give me a lifetime of rosy memories
One day one life I want to live on your lips,
When petals of your rose convey their readiness to
Their messages carrying the gift of love forever and no
Which I’ll cherish all the more, years after this bliss.
That day mine will be the first name after God,
Making your day busier with my thoughts.
Heavenly whispers for each other make stars even
My name is the last in the words your mouth knits,
as we wish sweet ‘morning-dreams’, compensating for the
One day one life I want to live in your heart and mind,
A day when I’ll not need to search for any love signs,
The special moments when I’ll be sure of the value of my
Wait for you,
Then you’ll tell me I read your heartbeats right.
When I will show, how you make my own senses come
You were the reason of my songs, and sole cause for me to
Even if apart, this ‘pure allegiance’ was our only itch,
My special place will always be mine,
And it is me whom you will always miss,
This one day a lifetime of love, we will live!
