If My Fingers Had Ink

If my fingers had ink
The winds; a blank slate
I’d write a letter to you, my love
A love letter in the air

Across the waves and oceans
Through the vast forests and seas
The winds will journey to you, my love
A journey to your ears

When the winds do whisper
Words from my deepest chambers
I’d miss the joy on your face, my love
The joy I can envisage

Sleep peacefully, my dear darling
Distance makes the heart grow fond
How far apart can we be, my love
If the same winds envelop us?

Love, Love

If the house seems to haunt us
The devil comes to daunt us
I’ll knock on her door
Till Happiness wants us
It’s love
Love love
Love love

If the world stands divided
Battlefronts have collided
We’ll stay together
For our hearts are united
If dark clouds are descendin’
Night knows no endin’
My armour and I
Your heart be defendin’
It’s love
Love love
Love love

When all hearts are dyin’
When all tongues are lyin’
I’ll keep you safe
From harm and cryin’
It’s love
Love love
Love love

Oh, oh, oh, oh
It is love
Love love love love
Love that keeps your heart beatin’
Love that keeps my lungs breathin’
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It is love
Love, love, love, love
Love that makes your heart stronger
Love that makes me hold you longer
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It is love
Love, love, love, love

A Spider Weaved A Web

A spider weaved a web
Giant and intricate
Looked at it in awe and muttered —
Oh what an architect I am
Here I will protect my eggs
Here I will trap a fly
How pleasant it would be
Oh I’m so proud of myself

A man looked at a spider
Weaving a web in a corner of his room
He looked at it with disgust and said —
Oh what a low-life
Weaving a no-good web
Wasting his time and energy and life
Let me put it out of its misery

And he did
And he was so proud of himself

Godster

Imagine finding out
That the entire universe —
Yes the entire universe
Comprising of stars and galaxies
Clouds and planets
Asteroids and black holes
Light and darkness
You and me —
Is in fact an eye
An eye of a larger being
It could be of a god
Or a monster
Or something else entirely
Let’s just call it a Godster

Imagine finding out that we
Are microscopic beings
Dust-like particles in Godster’s eye

There’s more to the Godster than just the eye
But we can barely wrap our heads around this
Forget ever getting to see its face

But here’s the best part
If this is true then
We have always been staring at Godster
Looking straight in its eye
And it has been looking back at us
Without either being aware of it

Holy Human

If you give a child the Gita he will grow up to be a good Hindu
If you give a child the Quran he will grow up to be a good Muslim
If you give a child the Bible he will grow up to be a good Christian
If you give a child the Talmud he will grow up to be a good Jew
If you give a child the Tipitaka he will grow up to be a good Buddhist
If you give a child all the holy books and scriptures in the world what will he become?

Just Put Up A Smile

When you’re blue and feeling down
All the worries of the town
Are dancing atop your head
Don’t you fret no don’t you dread
For I’ve got a perfect cure
To help you through this mess
It will help you that’s for sure
So relax and don’t you stress
Though it may not be your style
Just put up a smile

Your rotten luck is grinning on you
Your heart is aching ain’t that true?
Nothing seems to go your way
It’s even worse than yesterday
Well you’ve tried all that you can
You’ve worked hard that’s clear to see
You don’t have another plan
So for now have faith in me
Every once in a little while
Just put up a smile
