Silent Tears Flow

Old expatriate 

Far away from home,  alone

Every morning,  fear

Separation wide

Technology builds bridges

News flow instantly

Every dawn new fear

Instant message, news of loss

Dead,  lost someone dear

Mind flies away fast

Limp body outwardly calm, lies

Heart weeps silently

Memories disturb

Silent tears flow unseen

Loneliness company

Burdens of the Past

I carry the burdens of the past

All these years a deep sorrow

Clouded my heart

As the years rolled by

Every year one step nearer to the grave

I can neither take sorrows with me

Nor can I leave behind to share

What good are these sorrows then

These burdens of the past

Will no longer weigh me down

No longer I will be crying alone

Words will not bleed anymore

A heart lightened, weight lifted

Look forward happily to the day

When the call will come

To travel to the land unknown

I’m Happy where I am

I’m where I am
By choice or destiny
Where I could have been
Where I would have been
What does it matter
Now at this moment
Here I am
Wanted or not
I do not care
Will extend my hand
Open my heart
Left behind the
Garbage of the past
Carry the nectar
Of love in my heart
If you accept
As it is
Both of us gain
If not
You wallow in the
Filth of your hatred
I move forward
Spreading gospel of love
I’m happy where I am

WordPress:Week Fifty One of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

It’s wrapup time. One more week to go and I am done with my yearlong journey.  But before I wrap up, I must say my thanks to WordPress.

WordPress opened a window through which I peered into a world that was hidden from me before.  I had no idea about blogging, did not know anything about posting a blog.  Wordpress gave me a platform to express my feelings. It allowed me to explore a medium that was dormant in my heart for a long, long time.  I made many friends across the seven seas, friends unseen or unheard but very near and dear to me.  Their words of encouragement have kept me going on my year long journey with the letter W.  Looking back over fifty one weeks, I think I must have been a fool to take my first step in this journey.  But there was WordPress at every step of the journey providing me with the much needed confidence to carry on.  Varieties of stories, poems, articles, the plethora of knowledge, each contributed something to this journey.

So here I am today, on the penultimate week of my journey, looking for a word that starts with W for my poem.  Where can I find a better word than WordPress for week fifty one of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter W to start my poem.  Hope my dear readers will agree with me.
