Our Daughter Puja

Her  Husband Ram: 

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.....

Sometime too hot  the eye of heaven shines.....

ram...can u make the sun go away?!


Give your Hearts
Kahlil Gibran

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

La Vita Nuova (excerpt)

Dante Alighieri
In that book which is
My memory...
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words...
Here begins a new life.

From This Day Forward

Author Unknown
From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be your home.

Let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between


Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the

shores of

 your souls.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,

 but let


 one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they

This was sketched by Ram. Below is the original.

Always smiling
Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.


When the one whose hand you're holding
Is the one one who holds your heart
When the one whose eyes you gaze into
Gives your hopes and dreams their start,
When the one you think of first and last
Is the one who holds you tight,
And the things you plan together
Make the whole world seem just right,
When the one whom you believe in
puts their faith and trust in you,
You've found the one and only love
You'll share your whole life through.
