My Special Glider

This is a poem I wrote for my grandparents when my mom brought me to United Kingdom with her to study.

My Special Glider

I close my eyes to be in a different world
A world where I could be with you
Just like the old days.

Alas! I could see you, Itay, feel you,
Hear your heartbeat as I lay my head on your chest,
Feeling wanted, protected.

Once again, I could feel Inay's gentle hand
Stroking my hair, lulling me into sleep,
That feeling of being cherished.

Tired from a day's play, I would sit between you
As you watch your favourite programmes,
Eventually, my eyes get tired that they close,
But I would be awake, 'though I'd pretend not to be!
Slowly you would lift me to put me in bed,
It felt like gliding in the air, only much safer,
More peaceful.

Not like the long ride which brought me
Miles away from you - so noisy, so impersonal
All I kept longing for was
To be in my special glider!

Whenever I close my eyes I know I can be with you again
But, when I close my eyes next time
There will be my silent wish,
You will be there!

Beauty of life for all to see,
Moving place to place, great mystery.
Seeing smiling faces, great the crowd,
Screaming fan, crying out loud.

So much love, just all around,
The beauty country, all surround.
Feeling the love, that surges my soul,
Bringing back memories, making me whole.

Moving through the fields of green,
Dancing the Dance, Silver Movie Screen.
Majesty Royal, free spirit in heart,
Creating a Riot, knighted in art.

So much love, just all around,
The beauty country, all surround.
Feeling the love, that surges my soul,
Bringing back memories, making me whole.

So many dishes, so to taste,
Tranquil lakes, so pure and chaste.
Sheep adorning the english plain,
Liverpool Music, I can't complain.

So much love, just all around,
The beauty country, all surround.
Feeling the love, that surges my soul,
Bringing back memories, making me whole.

Heartbeat of music, beauty in rock,
Paradise of discipline, now take stock.
Rulers of the World, conquering each part,
Gave beautiful Diana, Queen of Heart.

So much love, just all around,
The beauty country, all surround.
Feeling the love, that surges my soul,
Bringing back memories, making me whole.

Sting walking fields of Gold,
Desert Rose to unfold.
Bringing forth the Summoners Tales,
Rich in music and in scales.

So much love, just all around,
The beauty country, all surround.
Feeling the love, that surges my soul,
Bringing back memories, making me whole.

Clarkson raving and in Top Gear,
Hammond baking bringing good cheer.
Then comes mystery, yes thats Stig,
With a Dark Helmet, test car no rig.

Lived in England for a shortwhile and enjoyed everything out there especially music. Not a party goer but loved the ancient relics and and the memories from out there. Studied there too, am sure you would love it. Which University?? I went to Coventry in the West Midlands.

Hi Anisha! Thanks for the message. I used to stay in the West Midlands too. However, I wrote the poem ages ago. I was still in my early teens when I had to leave my grandparents then. :)
