Jane’s Welcome Song

A song welcoming my daughter, Jane, into this world!

Welcome, Jane! You can’t understand this or make sense of this song right now. But, one day, when you hear this, I hope you smile 🙂


And she bloomed into our world one morning,
The only time, we laughed when she cried!
A feeling, fresher than the day’s dawning!

The Light in Your Eyes

When I woke up,
I saw the light in your eyes.
In that moment,
I saw the day’s first sunrise.
Planned a trip to
Heaven later in the day.
But I already got there,
Before I started on my way.
And as you closed your eyes and turned,
Oh! My heart, it crumbled and burned.
I wish I could let it be,
But light has gone from me.
Oh! My light has gone from me.
I saw in your eyes,
Only truth, no lies –
Certain certainty,
No rolling of the dice.
And as you opened your eyes and turned,
My heart, it raced and churned.
I wish, it could, for eternity be.
The light has come back to me,
`Cause my light has come back to me.

The Call (Song)

Wrote this in 2010. Used to stay close to the office when I was working for Siemens, and walked to office for the first few weeks. Started writing this while sitting on a small wall outside the office, and completed it while walking back home.

=== The Call ===
I was walking down the road,
Wondering how the world would be,
When my children came around.

I saw a man hit a woman,
And she hit him back –
Man and wife seem to be just archaic words.

I saw nations at war,
Destroying each other from afar –
Peace just seems to be an archaic word.

This is a call for love,
This is a call for peace,
This is call for everything
That we don’t have now.

This is a call for hope,
Well, it’s is a call for trust,
This is a call for everything
That we need right now.

I saw a man lying on the road,
And they all passed him by –
Good samaritans seem to be an extinct breed.

I saw men cutting down trees,
And raping forests with glee –
Nature seems to be another betrayed friend.

This is a call to care,
This is a call to share,
This is a call to help
Every poor brother out there.

This is a call to wake up,
It’s a call to take up,
The arms of truth and love,
To fight the hate everywhere.
