To all Rupali’s fans!
The response she’s received is very encouraging and we thank you all for visiting and commenting. So I have decided to dedicate a page to Rupali… Long may she write and delight us with the sweetness of her thoughts and the magic of her verse!
Rupali Mistry I asked if she Would help me To cross the street My vision’s a blur I don’t even hear My bones as they creak The street’s so wide I cannot decide Where to point my feet She took my hand And like a lamb I followed silently She left me standing At the Gate - wond'ring Of this Castle by the street “This is where you’ll be” She said to me And turned away to leave I asked her name And why she came? And where she had brought me? “Your Angel!” she said “And Heaven’s this place Where you will rest in peace.”
Rupali Mistry Piper, Piper, play me a song So I can dance And sing along Piper, piper, I hear you now And I’ll follow you Beyond the clouds Piper, piper, stop playing your pipe For I’ll stay awhile In this place of light WHITE ROSES Rupali Mistry Little white roses Growing by the road. Little white roses With hearts made of gold Little white roses though they cannot speak, say much more than anyone with feelings twice as sweet. Little white roses spreading love and peace. Innocent white roses never causing grief. Little white roses spread the fragrance of life. O erring, hurting humans May they be your guide.
My heart yearns for your love, dearest! Only you can quench this desert’s thirst. I long and long to hold you Like the night embraces the moon. You are the one and only one Who brightens my life like the Sun. I will love you forever and ever As long as I live and even thereafter.
Walk the tightrope to the end. Don’t look down. Not yet, my friend. Swim across the ocean wide Against the currents and the tide. Run along the winding road At whose end lies the true abode. Fly across the great blue sky. Win over all worries and strife. And when you come to that door, Victory will be sweeter than you know
Pitter-patter fall the drops from the skies nonstop. Swift and fast comes the rain. Clouds are overhead again.
Out come raincoats, out come umbrellas, out come the gumboots, and brandy from cellars.
Little children on the roads shout and jump with the toads. And worried mothers everywhere cry out, “Come here! Come here!”
Greenery is everywhere. Snakes and scorpions give a scare! Rivers and waterfalls overflow Silvery spray everywhere they throw.
Peacocks dance and sing aloud. All around the mist does shroud. Brooding hearts sing out again. Rainy days are here to stay.
The night was dark
The wind did howl
The streets were empty
The tramps didn’t prowl
The sea was wild
The fishermen cried
So weak; so mild
The flowers died
The sky showered
Great big drops
That filled the streets
And lashed tree tops
The children cried
The mothers prayed
“O Lord, save this creation
So weak and frail.”
I looked up towards the sky
To where the great eagles fly.
The clouds were passing by
In shades of grey and white.
And then, I saw the Miracle.
Oh! ’twas a wondrous spectacle!
The darkness parted to bring forth
The Fingers of God onto the Earth.
This was a Sign of His great design.
A sight I would cherish for all time.
There were no questions in my mind.
He bought a new light in my life.
The light of blessing and belief
Would cure the pain; bringing relief.
Happiness would now abound
Where Sorrow long stood its ground.
