I always know..

When the day is bright
and the sky is blue
when the clouds smile
like angels too
I know that you are thinking of me

When a butterfly passes me on the street
whenever I get an unexpected treat
all those times when I smile for no reason at all
and whenever anything breaks my fall
I know you are whispering prayers for me

Whenever there is an approaching storm
the sky is grey and hope is gone
and I suddenly find shelter beneath
some old roof in the wild heath
I know it is you protecting me

When I am in pain, broken and lost
when I cant find my way back at all
some song is played in my heart
and I know I just won't fall apart
because you're there,
always there with me

And when I breathe and when I cry
whenever my heart beats out of time
I always know
Just somehow know
I just crossed your mind...

Do it anyway...

This isn't by me... Its by Mother Teresa.. But it inspires me to be my best everyday... I thought it would be a good thing to share it!!

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight.
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis
it is between you and God;
it was never between you and them anyway.

I had this feeling today evening. One of those feelings that you get by intuition or may be some instinct that something that I have been waiting for is about to happen. I spent the whole evening today really happy. My heart kept fluttering and nothing anybody said or did made me angry at all. Because I was going to get what I had been waiting for. That hope was enough to keep me happy. Not just this evening, but probably , forever.
I think this is what life is about.
When you have a dream, when you know that what you want will happen someday, that little hope becomes the reason for your existence. It does not matter what it might be. It does not even matter what lies on the other side of the mountain you are so happily climbing. It does not even matter if the mountain even has an end or not. You might even be living on the hope of doing something and don’t even do it.
Ultimately, it all comes back on just the hope, because until hope remains, life is a bliss everyday.
And so as I said, I don’t know what happened today evening. Maybe it was the little kid who smiled back at me on the road. May be it was the wonderful time I had with my friend today. Or may be it was just the fact that it rained today in my city and I got wet. May be god had put a cheering charm on me or something.
Whatever it was, I still don’t get it.
But nevertheless, I looked up at the sky and said thank you anyways. Because I think it was god’s way of telling me that he still cares and loves me a lot…

When the rain comes down
I can hear the sky cry

Listen to it, it won't fall forever
catch every tear
of sorrow and joy
Hear every story
Of love and life

When I hear the sky
I hear you too
I hear you calling out to me
Your voice stays in the wind
its whispered back to me by the trees

I hear you from this side of the glass
You speak to me from the other side
Only a thin sheet of art
Keeps the two of us apart
But I won't open the windows yet
For the fear of things rushing too fast

I hear you when I close my eyes
and the wind soothes my tormented soul
It carries your song along with it
I hear it and I sing along
My heart melts in the beauty of it

So listen to the falling rain tonight
I know you'll hear my voice too
For we must not meet as yet
The meeting hour shall wait some more
but you must sing, without fail
so waiting shall not hurt no more...

Shadows beneath those eyes...

In the shadows under those eyes
I still see the ghost of our past
It lingers in your heart
It still haunts the inside of your head

You go through every memory
one by one, each second of your day
Wishing I wouldn't come back
wishing I would fade away

You are confused, frustrated
You don't know how to react
You left me years ago
Why does it all keep rushing back?

You sleep, you eat
You go out in the park
you try to work
sit alone in the dark

But you see me in your dreams
and in every stranger's face
you try to erase me
I set your heart ablaze

You pretend you are happy
that you are so alright
but inside you are hollow
in darkness too bright

And now you search for me
so you can go back in time
but till my heart bleeds
I'll stay right there in the shadows
beneath your tired eyes...
