My love is like an ocean

It goes down so deep

My love is like a rose

Whose beauty you want to keep.

My love is like a river

That will never end

My love is like a dove

With a beautiful message to send.

My love is like a song

That goes on and on forever

My love is like a prisoner

It's to you that I surrender...!

well Talaash, thats some geniune heart felt stuff. getting inspired by it i have decided to add some good poetry that i think is really pure. i had originall posted it elsewhere, now that u took the initiative of english poetry so i am relocating my post .

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into yo...ur being, the more joy you can contain.

Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?

And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

Unfolding the Rose

It is only a tiny rosebud,

A flower of God's design,

But I can't unfold the petals,

With these clumsy hands of mine

The way of unfolding flowers

Is not known to such as I,

The flower God opens sweetly

In my hands would surely die.

If I can't unfold a rosebud,

this flower of God's design -

Then how can I have wisdom

to unfold this life of mine?

So I will trust him to lead me

Each moment of every day,

And I'll ask him to guide me

Each step of the way.

For the pathway before me

My heavenly Father knows,

And I'll trust him to unfold it

Just as He unfolds the rose.

I sit in the park where I dwell

For this Girl I love so well

She took my heart away from me

Now she wants to set me free

I see a Boy on her lap

She says things to him she never said to me

I ran home to cry on my bed

Not a word to mother was said

Father came home late that night

He looked at me from left to right

He saw me hanging from a rope

He took his knife to cut me down

And on my dress a note was found

Dig my grave Dig it deep

Dig my grave From head to feet

And on the top place a dove

And remember this, I Died for Love

I wake each day

with someone on my mind.

That someone is you, whose never been anything less

than sweet and kind.

I can't imagine you not being with me

for the rest of my life

because if that were the case,

the only other option would be heartache and strife.

I hate when we fight,

I'm unhappy when we cry.

No matter what, these are not good enough reasons

to ever say goodbye.

You are the perfect love

in every way.

No matter how much I try to say how I feel,

there is still so much left to say.

Everything I told you about my life not being

complete without you in it, is true.

Then I guess our future can only be determined

by a decision that is to be made by you.

Thx Rust...... very Nice Sharing

Nice Hayya, Aryaan n Emaad..... Keep Sharing

Life is a miracle

Don't let it slip away,

Open your heart to others

Give of yourself each day.

See the beauty in everyone

Regardless of where they've been,

Some have a difficult journey

And really need a friend.

Share your gifts and talents

Listen with your heart.

Do the things you dream about

But don't have time to start.

Pick a bouquet of flowers

Show someone that you care,

Be gracious and forgiving

Life is never fair.

Hold on to your courage

You may need it down the road,

We all have a cross to bear

It could be a heavy load.

If you practice all these things

No matter where you roam,

You may find both sun and rain

But you'll never feel alone!

friends here is another work that is simple and yet touches our realization deep inside:

You would know the secret of death.

But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?

The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.

If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;

And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.

Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.

Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?

Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

friends here are some more feelings clad in the beauty of words

What if a man cannot be made to say anything?

How do you learn his hidden nature?

I sit in front of him in silence,

and set up a ladder made of patience,

and if in his presence a language from beyond joy

and beyond grief begins to pour from MY chest,

I know that his soul is as deep and bright

as the star Canopus rising over Yemen.

And so when I start speaking a powerful right arm

of words sweeping down, I know HIM from what I say,

and how I say it, because there is a window open

between us, mixing the night air of our beings.

A woman's best Jewelry is her Shyness. - Lady Fatima Zehra (sa)

The beauty of a woman:

Is not in the clothes she wears,

the figure that she carries,

or the way she combs her hair,

or the style she does make up.

The beauty of a woman:

must be seen in her Hijab, and her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart,

the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman:

is not in a facial mole,

but true beauty in a woman,

is reflected in her soul.

The beauty of woman is in her modesty.

And the real glamour of her is her honesty.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,

the passion that she shows.

And the beauty of a woman,

with passing years - only grows!

Verstile Vsh!

I am sorry my tears

Coz I have trapped you ,

Whenever you wanted to flow

I have always stopped you.

I know inside for you

It is very suffocating ,

But even if you flow

Nothing you will be getting .

You will flow

And get vanished somewhere ,

And till that time

People will show that they do care .

So better don't expect

A anybodyآ’s sympathy ,

You are true

You don't deserve false pity.

I know you wanna come out

To make me feel relieved ,

What you think ?

Will this make my wounds get healed?

Rather than you

Its more painful for me

My dreams getting shattered

Is what everyday I see .

Still I smile

And pretend to be carefree ,

But whats behind ?

Nobody ever tried to see .

Like a poison inside me

Still I wanna you to hold ,

Desperately I wanna breath

But my breaths have turned frozen and cold .

Through my body

Like blood you run ,

Now you are my night

And the only sun .

So don't feel hurted

And never do leave my eyes ,

A bond of love

Ours relation is so nice .

Whenever I smile - you glitter

And make my eyes glow ,

So please wait till my death

Maybe then from every eye you will flow.

Veryyyyyyyyyyy Nice Sharing ... keep it up :yes:

Lighting The Way

If I was one thing, I'd be a candle

Lighting the way so you can handle

Your life easier without woes

Not having to fight with your foes.

I'd help keep you from stumbling over

Things blocking your path to an open door.

If I light your path, life is easier,

Even strong winds, my light will not deter.

No matter what, I'm here for you

To cheer you up when you are blue.

Do not fret when times get tough,

If things look down or kind of rough.

Just remember, I'm always here,

In your heart, close and near.

I will help you out in every way,

Happiness and love in your heart will stay.

Don't blow me out, that's one request

Unless it's me you do detest.

I do not try to hurt anyone

That isn't good or any fun.

But one day you may leave me behind

You may no longer need my light to shine.

If that day comes, go on your way

And I will hope to see you again one day.

If one day, I don't appear,

Do not worry, do not fear

I may be gone, but in your heart

The light I gave you did not depart.

It will be there forever and a day

To always bring happiness and light your way.

Farewell for now, I'm needed elsewhere

If your path grows dark, in your heart, I'm there.

So I'm really not gone, just not seen,

I would not leave, I'm not that mean.

Only one simple request that I must say,

Please, never forget those who lit your way...

You Are Not Alone

When ever you’re feeling down,

Or at times even feel pain

Don’t think we don’t worry,

Call on us, my friend.

Never forget, you’re not alone.

We will stand by your side.

So there’s no need to feel this way

We are here to wipe those tears away.

Ill dance like a clown if I have to,

Ill even tell silly jokes,

I will do what ever it takes.

So you don’t feel alone.

Many nights I pray

You will get better soon

So like children we can go outside and play.

Till it gets so dark that we can see the moon.

And that day will come, you will see.

It will be just you and me.

So please, when ever you feel sad again,

Call me, Ill rush right over my friend.

We will joke and smile that day.

Ill make you feel loved again.

And when you call if I’m not there?

Read this poem I wrote.

I know it’s not the same,

But it lets you know you’re not alone.

~*~ TRUE LOVE ~*~

You will never find

a love so true,

As the undying love

I have for you.

This love of mine,

could never be matched,

There’s nothing

I wouldn’t do.

You could point

to the highest mountain,

I would climb to the top with ease.

You could point

to the deepest sea,

And I would swim to the distant shore.

I would do this honey,

Because it's you, I adore.

If I had to reach you

in the heavens,

I would find a way to fly.

If I had to cross,

the hottest desert,

Than surely I would die.

Because only for you,

I would give it my best try.

Ask me to give my life,

I will.

Ask me to bare my soul,

I’ll do it.

I would do anything that you ask.

There’s only one thing

I can not seem to do.

The last which is the greatest

Of them all.

I would do all of the above,

And more.

I would give everything,

if I could do just this one.

I pray and pray,

every single day,

That there was just one way

For me to get you

to love me,

As much as I do

You Taught Me How to Laugh Again :biggrin:

You taught me how to laugh again

And gave me back my smile,

Restored my faith in people when

Everyone seemed vile.

You were as if the sun came up

Upon my bitter night

And bade the blackness rustle up

Some joyful morning light.

And inexplicably my heart

Rose up and twirled me round,

So sudden in its expert art

I scarcely touched the ground.

With you I am still filled with light

And all my feelings dance.

When I'm with you,

eternity is a step away,

my love continues to grow,

with each passing day.

This treasure of love,

I cherish within my soul,

how much I love you...

you'll never really know.

You bring a joy to my heart,

I've never felt before,

with each touch of your hand,

I love you more and more.

Whenever we say goodbye,

whenever we part,

know I hold you dearly,

deep inside my heart.

So these seven words,

I pray you hold true,

"Forever And Always,

I Will Love You."
