Days of thunder

This weekend I metup with friends. We had a lot of rounds of 20 questions as AJ just got engaged. He was at the receiving end as we fired away with questions. He was treating us, so were polite in our queries :-) AJ was all charged up and replied to one and all. As we drifted towards the lean end of dinner the conversation stabilized towards the rhetoric. Sometime around that very moment a stray query hit Deepa on the head. She looked at us and replied that she was also engaged. She told us that she was to tell us the coming day but decided to tell us about it today itself. She then told us that the proposal came a few months back. The guy was on his knees and stuff :-) Well we'll be having another round of 20 questions soon. AJ was silent as the focus now shifted to Deepa. I then jumped up and shouted, "You just stole his thunder". :-)

Immaculate Dream

Immaculate Dream

A brand new life, a sculptor's clay,

To see it form, through night and day.

And as it grows a dream is born,

As seasons change, with every dawn.

Unwavering thought, thru the passage of time,

Stand up and walk, through means sublime.

The guiding hand always shows the way,

Incase we falter, incase we sway.

Empathy's glance, the gentle touch,

The daily struggles don't seem that much.

The day will come, our heart is told,

We will take over, the dreams unfold.

As reality abides, we walk on our own,

The Secret of Memories, we are not alone.

The Angel's lullaby, the soprano's song,

The silent whispers still linger on.

Read the following lines somewhere eons ago... I think it was the Reader's Digest.
"Someone once said that you don't need to tell your parents you love them, they already know. Well I guess that someone is not a parent."

btw the name 'Immaculate Dream' comes from 'Immaculate Conception'.

Happy Mother's Day.
