Til Kingdom Come

The 'Welcome Tune' on my mobile phone now for some time... and the song on my iPod in a loop.


"Til Kingdom Come"

Steal my heart and hold my tongue.
I feel my time, my time has come.
Let me in, unlock the door.
I've never felt this way before.

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummer begins to drum,
I don't know which way I'm going,
I don't know which way I've come.

Hold my head inside your hands,
I need someone who understands.
I need someone, someone who hears,
For you, I've waited all these years.

For you, I'd wait 'til kingdom come.
Until my day, my day is done.
And say you'll come, and set me free,
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.

In your tears and in your blood,
In your fire and in your flood,
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing,
"I wouldn't change a single thing."

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummers begin to drum,
I don't know which way I'm going,
I don't know what I've become.

For you, I'd wait 'til kingdom come,
Until my days, my days are done.
Say you'll come and set me free,
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me.

Honeybee asks the herbs in rhyme
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme
Wise said-in the garden you keep
Rose with myriad color reap

Amateur poet anon is comparing his heart to a honeybee (i.e. very small person) which flies in the garden of herbs Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. Parsley is symbolic to Spirituality; in the poetry signifies that 'I am yours'. Sage is symbolic to strength; in the poetry signifies 'I am dependable', Rosemary is symbolic to faithfulness, love, and remembrance; signifies 'Remember me'. Thyme is symbolic to courage. Poet here is trying to compare his loved ones heart with a Rose with vivid color which signifies deep empathy (entering into others feelings).

Poets is speaking with his heart that is mild & sober(Parsley) enough to dilute any bitterness between him and his loved one, who has enough strength(Sage) in his heart to stand firm when apart from each other, faithfulness to stay with him during the loneliness and courage to fulfill her impossible task (to stay apart). Poet is trying to explain to others about greatness of his loved ones heart which he believe is STILL full of empathy. Because he believes that her loved one heart still stands in the same garden that poet is talking about.

Listen again! Love uttered by natures law:
Peacock fan its train for peahen to awe
Yes fanning of train is magnificent sight
Lo. Two Peacocks or Alone means only fight

Amateur poet Anon is comparing him self with peacock and his loved one to the peahen. Peahen because poet believes that God has made her very simple and devoid of any ornamentations. Also poet wants to answer the questions asked by different people the reason for loving a person. He wants to tell others that its not silly! See the nature thats how it works! He believes that people don't know what is love. He has compared himself with peacock as peacock only has voice and a train with different colors(work and skills) to attract the peahen from a distance. Which is suitable in real world where poet is sitting far off from the peahen. Poet has used a forceful language as he is talking to others. Poet is trying to explain what does love means.

Poet has mostly written this for others. (He was once told by some one to dance and merry around alone its more sort of answer to that for which poet is still). He believes that he has shown different colors to her loved one and hope it surely must have been a magnificent and hypnotic sight for others.

Which draws them back to see the sight. He wants to emphasis on the fact of nature that peacock dances in merriment and enjoy only in the presence of peahen. And rest of the time he spends in struggle for survival (Similar to the poets life) He in real life when alone does things to keep him self alive).

Oh my friend its the duality I speak
No one is strong and no one weak
Some drink the cup of nature and flow
Some Try to change it and like a mountain grow

Well let me tell you a story. A real one! You can take it more as a product case study. :)

Story took place sometime 1 year back. There was a guy in a Product Based Multinational company.
He was given a role of defining a product, a thermostat, for the US market.
This guy liked a girl for quite some time. A simple girl whom he knew from childhood.
