अंतिम ऊँचाई – कुँवर नारायण

कितना स्पष्ट होता आगे बढ़ते जाने का मतलब
अगर दसों दिशाएँ हमारे सामने होतीं,
हमारे चारों ओर नहीं।
कितना आसान होता चलते चले जाना
यदि केवल हम चलते होते
बाक़ी सब रुका होता।

मैंने अक्सर इस ऊलजलूल दुनिया को
दस सिरों से सोचने और बीस हाथों से पाने की कोशिश में
अपने लिए बेहद मुश्किल बना लिया है।

शुरू-शुरू में सब यही चाहते हैं
कि सब कुछ शुरू से शुरू हो,
लेकिन अंत तक पहुँचते-पहुँचते हिम्मत हार जाते हैं।
हमें कोई दिलचस्पी नहीं रहती
कि वह सब कैसे समाप्त होता है
जो इतनी धूमधाम से शुरू हुआ था
हमारे चाहने पर।

दुर्गम वनों और ऊँचे पर्वतों को जीतते हुए
जब तुम अंतिम ऊँचाई को भी जीत लोगे—
जब तुम्हें लगेगा कि कोई अंतर नहीं बचा अब
तुममें और उन पत्थरों की कठोरता में
जिन्हें तुमने जीता है—

जब तुम अपने मस्तक पर बर्फ़ का पहला तूफ़ान झेलोगे
और काँपोगे नहीं—
तब तुम पाओगे कि कोई फ़र्क़ नहीं
सब कुछ जीत लेने में
और अंत तक हिम्मत न हारने में।

Let me see your eyes I want to read you Let me touch your hand I want to feel you

I’ll Leave This World Loving You Walk away leave with my blessingOnce in a while let me hear from you If we never meet againbefore my life is over I’ll leave this world loving you
You can take everything but my memories For they’re good ones and they’ll see me through If we never meet again I’ll love you forever I’ll leave this world loving you
You were mine for a time and I’m thankful Oh,but life will be so lonesome without you If we never meet again this side of Heaven I’ll leave this world loving you
If we never meet again this side of Heaven I’ll leave this world loving you.
I don’t know why you love meBut because of that I know dreams come trueAll I want is love and devotionHonesty and faithfulness from you.

Let me see your eyes I want to read you Let me touch your hand I want to feel you
Every time And every where I just search, Where are you? I dreams always To be with you Oh my sweetheat! Let it true
Let me see your eyes I want to read you Let me touch your hand I want to feel you
When I close eyes It seems you I love you sweetheart Love me too Let me see your eyes

He’s turned his life around. He used to be depressed and miserable. Now he’s miserable and depressed.”
Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example
That’s how I feel without you. Every day that we’re apart Feels like an eternity.
I miss you so much, today I was blue.I watched the time,and kept thinking of you.
If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you, and share with you its beauty on the days you’re feeling blue.I’m sending love and kissesall through cyber-spaceif I could be there with youI’d plant one on your face
Holding hands I’d whisper just gimme a little kissthen I’d close my eyes real tighthoping not to miss
But since I can’t be with youI send kisses through e-mailpucker up, and think of meuntil we kiss for real

Today I thought about youand I realized something.I felt like a part of me was missing,and I discovered it was you.

You my sweet love,I miss ever so much.The softness of your lips,And your warm loving touch.
Many uncontrollable circumstances,Have kept us so far apart.Yet every moment I carry you,
You are the love of my life,That you’ll always be.The special times we share,Just mean everything to me.

I keep you in my heart


Every now, every then,
Everywhere and everywhen;
I think about you always;
How you are and how you’ve been…
Every here, every there Every promise, every prayer;
No matter where we both shall go,
You’re with me everywhere.

I keep you in my heart
And my prayers at all times!

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

From Book by Maya Angelou

The Essence Of You

You are My Heart, My Hope, My Velentine


You are My Heart, My Hope, My Valentine 
You are my heart, my hope, my help,
The passion that is me,
The hole of which I am a part,
My peace, my ecstasy.

You are my future,present, past,
My ship, my sail, my ocean,
the wind that brings me home again,
The home for every motion.

you live within me, yet I am 
Without you all alone.
With you I am full of light;
Without I am stone.

Is this foolish? Yes, Perhaps,
But also it is true.

I think of life as something I 
Can spend with only you.

Ah, my love! Love longs for such
sweet celebrates as this!

loe is burden and joy,
slavery and bliss.

This day of love come love with me,
Come sing with me my song.

Come be my VALENTINE and I 
Will love you my life long, 
Oh! My love, I dote on you.
