Dreams of a Girl

Before I Die..!!

To that Guy,, Before I Die..
To that Guy,,
Before I Die..

I am oblivious of this fact
That I am breathing,
The moment I realise the act
I’m afraid, I’m close to dying.

For many things, I want to be certain
Wakes the dead, I want to cry
I want to laugh loudly
All this I wish, before I die

I want to meet that one someone,
Who thinks of me with the sun rise
Who knows what I won’t be able to say,
Whose love is true amongst all the wordly lies

I want to feel the breeze against my skin
See every nook and corner of the world with my eye
Holding that someone’s hand, I sit on the sand
All this, please Almighty, before I die

Simple be you, simply be me
Simply we live in the world of complexity
Create such a moment that makes me shy
Make me yours and be mine, before I die

Is there any such someone
If you are anywhere, please come in my way
Look at me, or atleast say a Hi
Just this much, before I die

Gimme that one moment,
Hold me close and tight
I dont feel the world around,
No matter what, but it would feel so right

Make me a world of surprises
Ring my doorbell at midnight
Play me guitar, take me out in the open
Let me loose but keep me in your sight

Don’t tell me I am beautiful,
Narrate what’s beautiful about me
Tell me why am I different for you,
Show me myself that I could never see

Can you stand with me
Let’s sit down!
Soundless, placid, and endless
Let’s gaze into the horizon.

Isn’t this new world beautiful
No plans, no complaints
Mornings, I sing a song to you
Evenings, it’s you who paints

By the time you arrive
I can be entangled,
Wanting to soar
My destiny would have failed to make me yours
But before I die,
I want to be sure you did come and stopped by

Talk to me, smile with me,
Brawl, chide me away, shout, then let’s be silent
Get depressed together and cheer up again like never
Laugh away on those moments with me and cry
All this, Yes all of this
Before…
I die. . .

            I know that.
            Well, sometimes we just want that person who does what you mention in your poem.

              Uhhh…
              Do they exist?
              And if they do, don’t you think they become someone else with time?

                Or, someone can become that person with time.

    God forbid they become someone else. When that person comes along, your heart will sing just like that, with full orchestra!

    Yup that person does exist. Took me till i was 51 to find him but it is nice. When the honeymoon periid was over he was and is the same. I accept him as he accepts me with all our flaws and perfections. Smile pretty girl smile

      Hey Donna,
      You can’t imagine how happy I am to learn you found him..That’s what I say in my poem too “By the time you arrive
      I can be entangled”..so he can arrive anytime..be it 51 or 61 years:)
      Go bless you!
      What a feeling it would be!! 🙂

        Yes i think it happened when i was personally in a good spot with myself. Then there he was riding in on his white horse lol. He is far from perfect but he is perfect for ME and i realised that.

          Yes totally agreed!
          We can’t be perfect..yet we can be perfect for that one person 🙂
          Hope you enjoy a very relaxing poem on this Sunday “Droplets” that I posted! 🙂
          Have a great day, Donna!

    Hi Shruti ! I just read it and I am at loss of words. It’s a rare thing! The poem was beautiful! The passion with which it was written, the venting out, the hope.. shout out through every line. I wore a smile since you started describing the perfect person and kept it on till the very end. But Shruti, no one can be perfect, right? There is always a scope of improvement 😀 And I am sure that with a heart so honest and selfless, you would be able to improve anybody upto perfection, and that too before you die 😉

      Hey Prateek,
      Gawsh! I’m speechless and very emotional after reading your comment. Thank you, thank you and thank you! 🙂
      You are right nobody is perfect, only that we all look perfect to the one we fall in love with. I mean, we aren’t perfect can never be, but we seem perfect to that someone somehow.
      Thanks for your wishes.
      Thanks for reading my stuff so closely. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to get readers like you:)

              Understanding poems make you know, feel and live some moments a poet wants you to feel with him/her.

                Couldn’t agree more. Only readers and actors have the luxury of living a thousand lives. So congratulations to us 🙂 And you too take good care 🙂
