All English Sonnets
When you with downcast eyes sit and think,
I plead with you to raise your head and see
The truth into the eyes and slowly drink-
The Love’s nectar, outpouring from me.
I lift your chin and make you raise your head
And make you see into my loving eyes.
A quickening, quickly, weary Time’s tread;
Astirring dead emotions, dormant sighs.
You look at me with fear and confusion,
And ask me why you should and why you must
Believe in faithless world. Your confusion
Is based on jilted faith and cheated trust.
I think, my dearest Sudha that I should
Repeat that love is great and life is good.
