Poems by Anu Pillai

My Love

a poem by Anu Pillai

They say that he is out of my sight
But I say he is there in my melted heart
Which keeps me smiling the way he smiles

My Love

a poem by Anu Pillai

I sit in my gallery waiting for my love
To enjoy my first summer in front of the red candle light
All the year long
During the festive mood
That gives me a smile on my bright face

A Prayer

a poem by Anu Pillai

Oh! Lord, I pray to thee
Neither for money nor luxury
But I pray to thee
For your firm hand to hold me
I pray to thee
To give me a chance
To serve the old age and the sufferers of this world
Let me die in peace
And never in grief
As I am weak
You are a source of strength
As you are a great physician who heals
The unwanted people of this world

In Memory of a Father

a poem by Anu Pillai

It is again that time of the year,
When a question popped in my mind,
When I knew what was passing in my mind,
When my desires and wishes were to be fulfilled,
The cruel notch of the time by GOD happened,
My bleeding tears came down my face,
Not knowing What to do next???,
I stood out there with a little courage in my heart,
And got the strength to become stronger in life,
As my father taught me to live this Man’s World,
And to take up his legacy forward,
And to live on forever in this world happily ever after
The way he wanted me to live.

Mother’s Love

a poem by Anu Pillai

Full of surprises for me, always, whenever I needed it
My mother forgot her struggles and her pain at that time
When I started murmuring for my things, she gave them with a cheerful smile on her face
The purity of which, you can never measure with a scale at all
I share with you my love and you share your love with me
My Mother though it is your day today, you have no rest
You are going on working with all my ears deaf, for what you are doing for me even today
And I do away with what I want
I forgot the invaluable possession
The mother’s immortal love
That’s the precious thing than anything else in this world
My mother, you are waiting for me
You want to let me know, how much you love me
And Mom, you want to tell me in my ears the mantra of love
Nothing else but the mother’s love
Long live mother’s Love

In Memory of a Father

a poem by Anu Pillai

As days, months and years have passed by me, all through the way
Twenty five long years flew away today, it is time for me to go by the past lane
To remember my daddy as a emotional release of the past evergreen in my heart
Who had a battle in the end days of his life with much pain
Never to come back again but just to loose it with ease
Daddy you had a life of a hero and you were the best
Years don’t make it easy, it makes all the more harder
Just to make me cry in the nights remembering you
I hope I have made you proud, though there might have been some fall outs in my life
Always wishing to hold your hands and scream out and call upon you
And show you how proud I have made you all these twenty five years that passed by.

A Mid Summer Night

a poem by Anu Pillai

The night is darkening
In the mid summer’s mellow night
The solemn hour of the night
The leaves murmur rustling in the air
And the huge trees are bending slowly
For the moon to show off its light in the darkness

An Unknown Dreamer

a poem by Anu Pillai

An unknown dreamer comes on my way I know not who he is,
But he gives me a fragrance of love that never goes away from me,
And this unknown dreamer puts a sweet beam of melody in my heart,
Never to let me forget his presence in my life,
Even if a distance is there between two hearts.

My Pains and Sorrows!

a poem by Anu Pillai

Oh Alas! Crippled with a broken heart no one to love
The pain struck into the body with a giant blow
Your love for me was the only healer
But knowing not the truth you left me
With a heart already broken long ago
And now broken into pieces by you
Leaving me all alone with my pains and sorrows

My Thoughts

a poem by Anu Pillai

How do I explain the pain in my heart
Which is filled with your thoughts
That is never ending
Wish I had another life
To explain to you that
How much I miss you
As each day goes by

Leaving the country

a poem by Anu Pillai

Though I left you and departed for good to another land
I left behind a thousand memories to cherish
The utmost care which I got from all of you
I will never get in this side of the world
Since I will miss you my friends Udit and Arou
I will miss the laughter and giggles that we had together
The tongue will never utter a word of love any more
As the path to another world is fearsome
And since now I am departing from all of you
I will never get another glimpse of the happy me
I will be like a guest from another world
Who is unsettled from her kin and friends
Who still lives in the dream world.

Loneliness

a poem by Anu Pillai

I cry, admit my lonely thinking of my dark fate
I have no one other than my loneliness
Which makes me faint to go into my sweet dreams

My Flights…

a poem by Anu Pillai

The early rays come and go,
And I start to learn to fight,
Trying to achieve my goals.

My fights are like the birds caged,
Like the soldiers who lay down their lives,
In the battlefield,
Never to come again.

Like the crow which is thirsty,
But cannot find water,
Like the person who has legs,
But cannot walk.

The real truth is- will I ever win?
And say goodbye,
To my departing smile.

My Teachers

a poem by Anu Pillai

Oh! my teachers,
You are the paragons of knowledge and love,
You are the temples of light,
You are the wings to protect me,
From the snares of life.

You are the one I can hold on,
You made me stand,
To show my breeding.

In distress and confusion,
You are a great force,
To turn on.

Teachers, I was your child once,
Can’t I be forever?
My teachers, let me take your footsteps.

Dreams

a poem by Anu Pillai

Dreams are seen,
But never fulfilled,
Every day a new dream,
But never foretold.

Dreams are dreams,
That never help us,
To be happy,
At any time.

Dreams never come true,
For they are seen,
To make us feel,
That our wishes will come true,
Whenever sad.

Dreams, Dreams and Dreams!
