Tigers in My Life.
There is something about you in the air,
In my dreams you come and stare.
I see your eyes and strips oh-so flare,
Not only of this life is our affair.
It’s been a while in the jungles I have gone,
In this concrete jungle I sit and yawn.
Thinking of you day and night bygone,
When will I get to see you/chance upon.
You are something for me to cheer about,
Once I see you with joy my heart will shout.
The restlessness I feel will fade without a doubt,
Come on baby from this misery bail me out.
Happiness is a state of mind the wise ones say,
To see you will make me happy everyday.
Even a tail or a nose if I see in the jungle display,
Spine with tingle like being struck with gamma ray.
Tadoba, Bandhavgarh or my favorite Corbett and Ranthambhore,
Wherever I see you my spirits are bound to soar.
My dream is to see laying in the ruins and to see you roar,
Another is to see you under a Banyan tree for sure.
Jai, Bamera, Teliya cubs or my favorite Paarwali and T39,
I think to see you all, my trips I have to redesign.
If I do not see you at intervals I am sure to whine,
My last wish – next life I wish our lives will intertwine.
