All Because Of You


(for Sri) @ Pf

Indeed, my smile
is wider than the oceans
spanning Canada to India.
and now...
I'll open my library door
and let the waft of air
fill my room
with aroma
of hot dal and paratha
and scented agarbatti
my God! ! so much ecstacy!
and so happy to hear
a koel chime
like the bell on my altar
all because of you
