The Song of life and love

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As long as you have the fire
Burning your heart,
And the iron flows in your veins,
Live on.
 
Though you be alone, and beaten,
If you have the faith
That you can rise again,
Live on.
 
As long as you can look at the world
In the eye, and laugh
At its irrelevance,
Live on.
 
So long as you know that pain
And loneliness and defeat
Are a part of the journey
Live on.
 
As long as you do not compromise
Or bend, or yield,
Before tyranny or greed
Live on.
 
So long as the opinions of others
Do not matter, and only
That of your heart does –
Live on.
 
So long as strong winds
Merely ruffle your hair
And storms strengthen your resolve
Live on.
 
So long as you can sing, fearlessly,
The songs of revolution –
Or of love
Live on.
 
So long as you are free
Of any bondage of the mind
Except that of love
Live on.
 
So long as anyone needs you
Or waits upon you
To cheer them up,
Live on.
 
As long as you have the hands
Of your beloved
Firmly in yours –
Live on.
 
So long as the setting sun
Reminds you of your heart
Melting in her eyes
Live on.
 
So long as the music of her bangles
Beckons you, intoxicates you,
And draws you towards her –
Live on.
 
So long as right or wrong do not matter
And only the smile
On her face does –
Live on.
 
So long as every breath that you take
Every heart-beat, holds the promise
That she will surely come –
Live on.
 
So long as the bitter cold winds
Hold the promise
Of her warm embrace
Live on.
 
So long as the gentle river
Slowly takes your boat
Towards her village
Live on.
 
So long as you can remember the moments
When her silvery laugh
Had set your heart aflutter,
Live on.
