You’re on a voyage to my soul
You’ve travelled my whole body,
You’ve been to each and every place,
You know all the whereabouts,
It’s as if you aren’t even a traveller anymore,
You have resided here,
And claimed that this body of mine
Belongs to you,
You think you own every inch of this land,
But let me tell you about that one place
You could never discover,
It was the road to my heart.
When she thought she finally found true love,
She realized that she was just another uninteresting book
In the shelf of his heart,
Years went by,
She got buried in dust but she never left hope,
She knew that one day, one good day,
He’ll come and pick her out of the dirty shelf,
With unconditional love, he’ll clean her edges and read her,
I look for peace
A sign of ease,
Or that flirty breeze
For the scent, I remember
Was of homely warmth,
Pastel yellow were those walls
Echoes of felicity that filled the halls,
Were a source of music for these ears
When tears flowed in heavy falls.
Ethnic birds, take me back,
I look for this and I look for that
Something of familiarity seems to lack.
This homesick spirit
Is a hindrance to remedying,
Every surrounding seems to be lying
For I am not at home,
Until this soul starts rectifying.
