I want to have trappings

I want to have trappings
And yet be able to fly...

I want to able to run
As far as I want
And wherever whenever I want
While walking back, every step will bring me closer to you

I want to climb trees
Explore branches
Pluck flowers from different bushes
And make a bouquet and bring back the fragrance for you

I'll walk around alone
I want to carry my own bags
I want to go shopping at flea markets
And bring back the gifts for you

I want to listen to music alone
Learn lyrics and practice notes
And then sing and play the song
For you

I will travel the world
Meet people and pick up an experience
Build new thoughts and take new steps
And in every thought and with every step
Will be the thought of coming back to you

I want to bungee jump
And bounce back to you.

@ rads: No actually. The "you" is a virtual concept. ;-D
And thanks again.

I want to have trappings
And yet be able to fly...

Till the time i was in solidarity
I wanted to have trappings with openings very few
But since the days you have come in my life
I wish to fly far away with you,


I want to be able to run
As far as I want
And wherever whenever I want
And While walking back,
Every step will bring me closer to you

I want my flight with you to be as beautiful as it can
Be as smooth as it is, to float on a swan
Yes, in this messy world full of people all around
Its you with whom i wish to be closer with,
You're the greatest gift of god i have found


I want to climb trees
Explore branches
Pluck flowers from different bushes
And make a bouquet and
Bring back the fragrance for you

If you wake me up with a whisper so gentle
My mornings are as bright as the light of lantern
I might be alone in the dusty plains for hours
But the very thought of you makes the whole place
Filled with a sweet smell, life the fragrance of flowers


I'll walk around alone
I want to carry my own bags
I want to go shopping at flea markets
And bring back the gifts for you

It takes a lifetime to live life to the fullest
But not so much when I have you and I and you become "we"
And now that I have you my love, let me carry the bags, let me do the shopping for you
Coz I have you, and you're the best gift that can be given to me.


I want to listen to music
Learn the lyrics
Practice the notes
And then sing and play the song for you

I wish to listen to the songs you sing near the sand dunes
And dance along with you, we shall fling to the tunes
But the gentle breath of yours when am closer to you my dear
Is the sweetest of music I can ever hear


I will travel the world
Build new thoughts and take new steps
And in every thought and with every step
Will be the thought of coming back to you, only you..

We shall travel the world, scale new heights and dive to the depths,
we shall enjoy life to the fullest and spend each day as it is so new
My dear, whatever steps we take, whatever things we do
May they be for getting closer to each other,
And remember, I always and always shall love you ,
Only and only YOU

@ shivaji: Read it. Finding peace with her after a day spent fighting the devils.
I was looking more at having the freedom to explore but stil have somthing to come back too..
So the peace at coming back is similar, but I was looking at enjoying the freedom,not about coming back weary.
Thanks. :-)
