Oh Child !!! Do what you love, coz you won’t get this life again


Oh child, will you ever get by?
Will you listen to things I say?
We don’t know the difference from your wrong or right

We’ll learn it along the way
Oh child, will you drink in the night?
Will you make all the same mistakes?
Do you get around with chasing all the highs
Forget all on your lowest day

And I know that I can’t pretend that I haven’t had my regret
From the memories that I’ve kept, to the history I forget
Oh, my father before he left
Oh, there’s one thing I wish he said
“Oh child, just do what you love, ’cause you won’t get this life again”

Oh child, oh child, no, no, don’t you worry
Oh child, oh child, I know you’ll be okay
Oh child, oh child, no you won’t get this life again, yeah yeah
Oh child, oh child

Oh child, will you travel the world?
And see all of the things I missed?
You can tell me all about it when you’re back
Like I always did
Oh child, maybe you can fall in love with a husband, or a wife
If you’re happy when the road is getting rough
I’ll be right there by your side

And I know that I can’t pretend that I haven’t had my regret
From the memories that I’ve kept, to the history I forget
Oh, my father before he left
Oh, there’s one thing I wish he said
“Oh child, just do what you love, ’cause you won’t get this life again”
No, you won’t get this life again, yeah yeah
No, you won’t get this life again yeah, ay yeah, ay yeah, ay yeah

Oh child, oh child
Oh child, oh child
No, no, don’t you worry
Oh child, oh child
I know you’ll be okay

Oh child, oh child
Oh child, oh child

Oh child, will you know this song?
When I’m gone and I fade away
Will you sing it back? I know it word for word
Back to your child one day
No no no, no non no don’t you worry

Oh child, oh child
No no no, don’t you worry
Oh child, oh child
I know you’ll be okay
Oh child, oh child
No you won’t get this life again yeah yeah
Oh child, oh child
No you won’t get this life again yeah, ay yeah, ay yeah, ay yeah

Sitting by the Ganga


14 May, 2016

Sitting by the Ganga – flowing past, fast yet serene, majestic,yet graceful.. gurgling, gushing, powerful, purposeful..pure, clean air..the cool breeze and lo! a light drizzle …..and the raindrops dancing on its surface … the full moon pouring its silvery sheen as the gushing waters sprinkle the shimmer.. It s almost midnight and not a soul around .. only the soulful, beautiful, resolute yet gentle Ganga …and my love ! .. And with a slight blush i realise, i am in love !

Years have passed, and yet the memory is still fresh …this day, that year.. and since then, The Ganga has known all my secrets , my dreams, wishes, prayers ..she has been my messenger, my secret-keeper, my guide, my mother, my love …how often has my love made me pine to be in her divine presence…many a time has she brought me messages from down her course which brought news of hope, life springing back from the jaws of death, .. brought me the hint of love..made me feel beautiful and alive.. she knows my love, my pain, and has shown me the beauty of love…she has even more intimately seen the pain and love of those whom I loved ,the angst of those who loved me once but gifted me this pain..

This year.. I stood in despair, scarred and scared, shedding tears ,,but no sooner did the drops touch her, she leapt up.from below . . her furious gushing waters washed away my tears ..gently..as i wept and a barrage of emotions threatened to sweep me away…. she has seen the beginning of love, joy and purity upstream, ..coursing onward happily, with bountiful hope and.. seen it ending in agony, pain and murk .. downstream..

She tells me not to despair .. For she has seen and borne much more..for she has seen the pain of those whom I loved ,the pain of those who loved me and made me love her even more but gifted me this pain ..she tells me every one is fighting their own battles…,she has seen it all and with her silent yet kind,graceful presence, she has time and again comforted and assuaged the desolation, the loneliness and misery of those who went to her.. like me and my love..

With great fortitude has she tolerated sacrilege upon herself..by those very people who claim to respect her but have indiscriminately violated her ..she tells me that the only way out is to keep loving and keep giving ….as she has done over the ages..as she courses down from her icy mountainous abode, meandering down valleys, meadows,forests and plains, bustling cacophonous cities, holy towns, unknown villages, islands and into the sea.. .find no fault and blame no one, she says..Just be kind and keep loving…I am her child, sitting in her lap as she takes me down her course, i leave everything to her ..

Every river is beautiful, but there s none as great as The Ganga .. and what have I given her, nothing except my tears ..I wish I could do something for her..I wish her children learn their lessons and stop violating her….And then, I wish she d take me away, the way she s taken away my tears..And who knows, in the next life, we may meet again by the eternal Ganga.. a fresh new start with her glory and purity restored.. A joyful tale with a happy ending ..till then till then i ll keep my love alive…till then I ll miss those conversations .. Sitting by the Ganga..

“I Was Here”

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I wanna say I lived each day, until I die
And know that I meant something in somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because

I was here

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I wanna leave my mark so everyone will know
