Trust thy timing

Trust thy timing

My soul is craving for light
Profound wisdom and insight
Amidst abyss and many barriers
I need you Lord , O my saviour !
Which path to tread on
And which one should I leave?
With my mind and heart in a mutiny
How do I  trust my destiny…
I wish I could end all that ails
I know it’s your wish that prevails
My luck on me is no longer shining
And all I can do is to trust thy timing!

-Raashi Hasteer

A Love That Keeps Me Waking

A Love That Keeps Me Waking

My heart races every time you’re around
Pounding with every bit of your sound
A face full of innocence pure
Your eyes are a magical lure
Basking in your radiant smile
Oft it makes me wonder if
It’s love or a mere fantasy ?
Or a budding love in its infancy ?
With silent glances & bonds in making
I feel it’s love ~ A love that keeps me waking !

-Raashi Hasteer

India-My Pride

India-My Pride

India! A place that is so rich in its history,
Her contribution to the world is no longer a mystery.
Zero and the decimal system originated here,
Calculus too has its roots down there.
She gave the world the knowledge  of the Vedas,
The profound spiritual  texts that she has !

It’s the land of rich cultural  diversity,
People from different  religions thrive in every city.
All festivals are celebrated together with love,
Nothing but unity and brotherhood stays all above.
She is the proud mother of many  brave sons,
Who sacrificed their  lives and never thought  once.

She is the home to exotic species of animals and plants,
To see her mother beautiful  is what every man wants.
Hundreds  of rivers and streams that flow,
Sparks of beauty they enkindle and glow.
India is our beautiful  motherland,
Which carries beauty  in every grain of its sand.

Let’s  sing a song and glorify her name,
Let’s  work together  and bring her lots and lots of fame.

-Raashi Hasteer

Online We Met

Online We Met

Online we met on one special day

Never knew so long you’re gonna stay

From strangers to close bosom friends

O , I wish the journey never ends !

Though miles away in a land so far

I feel we meet every single hour

With many a million words to say

If time could stop , I wish it may…

You’re the lyrics of my song

You’re someone I’ve always longed

With you , I know what happiness is

Being with you is my heart’s earnest wish ! 🙂

-Raashi Hasteer

Speak Ye, Ruddy Drops

Speak Ye, Ruddy Drops

Oozing from my bleeding heart

You tiny ruddy drops of blood

Drenching my soul as you pour

Deep down from my heart’s core…

He broke my heart

Ripped it apart

And as he left my ‘tender’ hand

Did he ever care where the pieces land?

‘Morrow if he comes here to see

Tell him that am no more ME

For if my lips doth fail to utter

Tell him my life hath cleared it’s clutter!

-Raashi Hasteer

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

After long days of sweltering summer and pain

I see thee pour . Pour ! O gentle rain !

Thou awaken the dreamy leaves

Giving moments of respite and relief.

Birds fly back to their eyrie

After days long and weary.

I see men jump and dance

Embracing the calm , a state of trance

Men are happy and so are birds

Life is happy and so is nature

Blessed is the Earth and all its creature

In an aura of thy mystique perfume

Wettens the Earth , gets soft like a plume

The Earth is at peace and so am I

Wet I am after days hot and dry

Thy falling drops  quench my thirst

Making my soul crave and lust

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !

Wash away all my heart’s pain

Cried I have , alone in my world

With tears unseen and sobs unheard

Thy drops today are some solace

When the world has left me lone

O heavens ! Thou art my secret companion

Bid thy clouds to pour more and more

To drench my soul and wipe my pain

Pour thee ! O gentle rain !
