6 Yellow Roses

Poem By Syed Karim

Carole Bilotta Clark

Many decades ago
I met a guy I wanted you to know
He sent me these Roses on Valentine's day
They were like the fresh air by the ocean bay
No note no condition just a word of admiraion
He was like the distant sky beyond the sea
Never could touch him, his spirit was vibrant and free
Simple and fun things he shared
He showed me that he cared
He believed in me with all his heart
He was like a kid always playing with dirt
No one had ever made me feel so good
Made me laugh when I was in bad mood
Yes, he told me I can do any thing and succeed
He planted in me the dream seed
His 6 yellow roses are still with me
They are dried but as pretty as they could be
Now I have all the worldly goods around me
But he is gone with the wind not here to see

Play With Rainbow

Play with Rainbow, wear the Rainbow
Ride the Rainbow high and low
Spread the color of Rainbow wherever you go
Paint with Rainbow, create a magnificent show

They Say I Am Old

They say I am old
So I should not wear colored sari and gold
Why can't I laugh and giggle, in a party, I can not mingle
I have to watch what I say, never to joke and feel gay

Have Fun, Sing Along

Have fun sing along, enjoy life all the way
Hurt no one be kind watch what you say
Life is precious, it is a gift
Touch others who are down, help and uplift

Call My Name

When you are lonely and no one to talk to
Call me, I will listen and hold your hands too
When you had a bad day and feel terrible
Call me, I will make you laugh and make you giggle

I Am Grateful To Be Here

I am grateful to be here where beyond the sky is the limit
All carry the torch of freedom so bright and that is lit
All races, Jews, Christian, Hindu, Moslem whatever you believe in
Under one flag, in God we trust and that we mean
