The Hero

Its been a while for me without a muse to write
On a high scraper reflecting all of my fears and anxieties

I took a leap of faith and jumped on a new platform
I wore my heart on my sleeve and there you recognized me

As confident as confidence came
A star flew right across the sky and I couldn't ignore the signs

A hero in a regular suit with such dark prominent mesmerizing eyes
Came with a purpose to touch my heart and light up the dark skies

Days go by so quickly and things happen too fast 
We don't have the strength within us to hold on 

These moments even if we could be the only ones to know
we cannot choose the path for us right now

You taught me:

Life is how we make of the moments presented to us
We either treasure them or let it pass before our eyes

Most of us spend our whole lives searching and reasoning

instead of living in the now and making memories

We may never know what tomorrow brings
Whether we will live another day to tell tales of yesterday

So we live through today choosing the right kind of people
Trusting the choices we make without being afraid 

The Hero came at a certain time and lives within me now
Pulled me away from the chaos of the heart and calmed the rough ocean shores...

No Good in Goodbye

The smell of you lingers on even after you've gone
I close my eyes tight and try to recall the last moments together
How my heart was happy and calm for a change!

Nothing lasts forever
Not even you
Not even me
But somehow I will remember you...

The warm affections of those kisses
The extra squeeze in those hugs
My kind of safe Haven it was

An interference so pure in intentions
the color and shape of the eyes
There was only happiness reflecting
Sometimes you have to see what I see in you...

Six moments it took for all the anticipation
It simply wasn't enough
A risk higher than the number
Into the night a masquerade we danced upon...

Thief of the night

We will all leave this world in ashes one day or another
So before we go
Let us make memories to carry forward

Who knows what tomorrow may bring
Whether we will continue to be here or not
So embrace all that we have and LIVE

Life is a series of events
With our emotions always on various frequencies
The feeling of high unlike any other feeling
And low hits hard like a point of no return
So choose to seek BALANCE

I've seen bright sunshine here and now
But haven't witnessed the darkest of days yet
I will not anticipate any coming
For there is no glory in knowing
But accepting what is yet to be..

Unbreakable Bonds~

I still get amazed at how things unfold
The people we are suppose to meet
and how they come at certain points in our life
Even the people we distantly grow apart
The timing of their departure
comes at another terminal marked "Arrival"

Somehow it all makes sense now...

People usually come into my life
To bring and add a positive change
Where I learn from them and they help me grow
If I let them
And equally I help them somehow in return

An unbreakable bond is created
So no matter when or where I might be
I know that these people will always remain in my life...

Encounter with an old cow herder~

Places take you to people and each person you meet has their own unique story... 

This is my journey, my story:

I stumbled upon this old man who goes through the RBA Football ground everyday with his red jacket and his cows. I noticed how every afternoon around 2:00 pm he goes from his house towards the forested area and returns around 4:00 pm. So one day I stopped him and asked him a few questions. He told me he and his wife look after cows for this man and they get to sell the milk and cheese from it to earn their livelihood. When asked if he had any children he told me he has one daughter who did a diploma course at the local Engineering College and is currently unemployed. He told me he had 2 sons from his previous marriage but both passed away. He spoke to me in Sharchop and in broken Dzongkha to which i gleefully asked more questions using the few sharchop phrases i knew and took pictures with him. After a short conversation we bid farewell in hopes to meet again the next day but I had forgotten to ask him his name....Perhaps tomorrow I will ask his name!

New Year, Old Thoughts~

It's crazy how people come and people go
Like a lightning flash seen only briefly
You notice it but it's not there
Like false promises and plans made for two
Accelerated speed of happy days
Then no good in our Goodbyes...

Nothing can turn back time
Trust me I've tried everything
I'll only remember those salty tears I cried
And I still don't understand why
But I guess people never change
They just put on a facade to tease you.

My mama was always right when she said:
"Leopards never change their spots"
I thought we were 'different'
I thought we were 'It'
I never thought you would slip away
time and again...

I was afraid to let go
But I needed this change
since I was causing you more grief and pain
I didn't want things to turn out this way
But you needed a happy ending most of all
You shut down your emotions
and trampled upon the same path you use to walk upon...

Thus I had no choice but to wipe my own eyes!
