A Woman


I dare not describe what women are, my vocabulary falls terribly short of worthy words! So, here are few of my most favourite quotes of all time:

The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes because that’s the doorway to her heart, the place where LOVE resides.

Audrey Hepburn

I alone cannot change the world. But I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

Mother Teresa

Extremists have shown what frightens them most: A girl with a book.

Malala Yousafzai

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.

Oprah Winfrey

Women are meant to be loved, not understood.

Oscar Wilde

Don’t let anyone tell you, you’re weak because you’re a woman.

Mary Kom

A charming woman does not follow the crowd, she is herself.

Loretta Young

A woman’s guess is much more accurate than a man’s certainty.

Rudyard Kipling

One is not born, but rather becomes a woman.

Simone de Beauvoir

And, the last but not the least, an anonymous quote:

Every man needs a woman when life is a mess, because just like the game of chess – the queen protects the king

Happy women’s day to all the women in the world!

The Empty Swing


15-the-empty-swing

The Empty Swing

I wait for her to come and play

Everyday…

I spread my arms to cover her from the sun

To watch her having fun…

I tell the wind to gently pass and make no hustle for a while

So that she could smile…

I tell my leaves to moist the air

As she rolls down her hair…

I tell the grass to be gentle on her feet

As she climbs the swing to sit…

And as she sways swiftly underneath my shadow, her legs stretched facing the hill

I cautiously hold on to the ropes and keep vigil…

And when she asks “How are you?”, and plays me as her confidante

I just want to hold her in my arms; alas, I can’t…

Now she does not come to see her friend anymore, years have gone

I stand here alone…

I keep looking down the valley to hear the bell

She used to come riding her bicycle…

But, In my heart I know, I will see her again before I go

Though the cold bites harder now when there is snow…

Let the seasons pass by, the fall and the winter, the summer and the spring

Till then, I will hold on to the empty swing…

Never Let Me Go


There’s a ocean’s difference between us…but why can’t I still let you go?
