In Conversation With Myself
by Tanuja Chatterjee
It's night again
My day begins
Writing notes in diaries
Sharing pleasant things.
My heart is young
Alone I stand
With the wrap of
Solitude all around.
Be my bell that announces the dawn!
Be my sun that ushers new morn!
Be my powerhouse of energy!
Be my source of all possibility!
Did you say something?
What is it I hear!
Are they just the silent whispers
Of yester years?
Let it be.
With you, My Heart!
I've travelled all these years.
Oh my heart, be my source of wisdom!
Oh my heart, let through me flow all compassion!
Be my strength and say to me "I'm invincible!"
Be my strength of all jubliation!
The starlit sky
The midnight chill
That burning fire
You needn't try!
You needn't cry!
No one will ever
Understand a thing.
Be beside me, I need you there!
Forever reside in me, for I know you care!
Be my courage in my unremitting struggles!
Be there for me, now and forever!
