Golden Temple Amritsar

My heart in your hands……!!!

images

So many roads I’ve traveled
That brought me here to you
A winding path that led me
To arms so warm and true

You hold me like no other
I feel so filled with peace
My heart is filled with rapture
My soul feels such release

Forever you are captured
Within this love we share
Together we know happiness
Our love beyond compare

No road I ever traveled
Has brought so much to me
Journey that will always be
Love’s sweetest destiny

Cleave to me in spirit
While on the roads you roam
Your spirit lives within me
Your heart is now my home

Valentine lovers …..!!!

Be My Valentine


Be my Valentine, my love,
As I will be for you,
And we will love the whole day long,
And love our whole lives through.

For love has no parameters
And does not end with time,
But is the gift of paradise,
A pinch of the sublime.

So let us take this holiday
To resubmit our love
To those within that know no sin
And with the angels move.
