My shining star

My shining star

A Poem by Manpreet

life could be anticipation or hope but most of the time it is acknowledgement of our being


My shining star

All these notions of joy seem so true

Each stretch of my thoughts reaches out for you

Your being is so peaceful and looks so serene

Contours of my being regained a new sheen


Waiting heart aches to hear known footsteps

Desire quiver and search for new depths

Waves of notions splash through the soul

To break all boundaries and lose control


Spread is the warmth that didn’t exist before

Just like a shipwreck suddenly finds the shore

New flash of life softened the tough sores of life

I was dead for ages and suddenly felt alive


It struck me like a lightening after a great storm

Altering correct matches seems destiny’s norm

I want to solve jumble of fate lines on my palm

Waiting a while to watch this game will do no harm


 Why wish for results just worship efforts

Just move on with hurt and always wait for reverts

this is the only ray of hope that can be seen

God will be merciful towards my being


You stumble, sparkle and smile enchanting me

You deny ignore and avoid encircling me

I tried to move far away only to be back around

You control your dazzle but get more profound


I will pray my star of hope to see you rise and shine

Will surely solve this puzzle one day and all will be fine

I will face all storms and failures and withstand them alone

Light of your sparkle will suffice me to live when you will be long gone

Life is a beautiful gift most of us forget to unwrap it and therefore don't know what exactly it holds inside. more..
