The stories…



More stories to unfold ,

of moments new and old

Some are better to forget.

some with encores are told


Some were special some were rare

of lost love and care

Some had you n me in them

some had those no more there


Some pass down to ages

For the charm that they hold

Some suppressed n put down

Go unheard,untold


Some blossomed, some lived

and fonder they grew

Some withered and died

in moments so few


Some will be cherished n retold

for ages to come

rest  will fade with time

the world will wonder at some


Those stories of past

Of long walks by the woods

hand in hand ,

side by side

sharing joys of childhood


Of those who saw blossom

their first love so true,

like first snow of winter

so pure fresh n new ,


There were  stories that were woven

in the  showers of rain

that still stir up the thoughts

refresh them yet again..


Some stories speak of those

who were dear who were close

who left us  ,with a void,

till day which echoes


They were erased and lost

in this worldly strife

like some missing chapters

in the story of life


Some stories are of treasures

that those dear ones left for us

an aquarelle of  memories

drawn on life’s vast canvas


 Some stories belong to those

who cherished who chose

to break rules, live dreams

not just move on with the flows


They moved out,explored

not wondered and seethe

They knew life was to “live “

not just exist and breathe


Some stories are our own

that we live on till day

moulding them each moment

like those sculptures of clay

we break them, shape again..

till we re done with the play.


the big book then closes

with secrets buried deep

off the shelf now  it goes

becomes  part of a heap


with some stories unfinished

n some pages old n torn

it paves way for the dawn

where new stories will be born


Time flies away, it just goes

its always on its toes

it wont slow down,it wont stop

for your joys or my woes

it wont rest to look at

life’s ugly burlesque

just a blink n there you see

lifes dawn turn to dusk


but it keeps weaving memories

in our lives night n day

this is what dreamz are made of

life’s a story they say,…….





You are…



Here’s a song that my heart

often whispers in glee,

A lil note to tell

what you are to me..

How do I start

and what do I say

 You are

the sunshine,

that brightens

my day.


You are 

the cool breeze of may,

with a gentle sway,

which blows through my heart

and takes my sorrows away.


You are

a special someone

so precious, so rare,

You are a dream

that came true

You are the answer

to a prayer.


Your love completes me

Your love makes me whole

You are my first wish ,

my longing,

You are

the last dream of my soul..


You fill my world with cheer

and love so profound,

What a blessing it is

 to have you around.


You have been my strength

 through life’s lows and highs,

through years of waiting

through my  smiles and sighs,

 through the snowy Decembers

and the drizzly  julys,

Feels like it was just yesterday

Oh how time flies .


Even today your enchanting smile

is like a rainbow through  rain

It ignites same love

n same emotions insane,

Just a glance and I lose my heart

All over again…

A Shadow Unknown



That shadow stood frozen,

in night’s darkest hour

still as a picture,

as a sole withering flower



with curios eyes laced with fear

I dared to move n step near



I saw that shadow move

n stare at me from a shady groove

I could see nothing but those eyes

those so familiar eyes

so dark so deep,as an ocean blue

those eyes so special,

those eyes belonged to YOU



When those eyes met mine,

they glowed for a while

then got filled with the sorrow

that lay hidden in that smile



What brought that gloom

on that once charming face

stealing all its charm

robbing’ all its grace

I wanted you to tell

what turned that heaven into hell

what made that enchanting smile,

so faint,so fragile



your lips parted to speak.

but the sound was so bleak

the words that you spoke

were lost in the clouds

and lost their meaning

in that misty shroud



That shadow turned away then

and vanished in the mist

I stretched out my hand to stop it

but it moved away with a pace so swift

Away from my eyes,forever was it gone

melted in the dark

n became a shadow unknown

leaving me with the darkness

that spread far n near

and incoherent thoughts of

that shadow once so dear,

left me groping in the dark

and struggling to find

a meaning for those lost words,

I never did hear

which never could travel

from your lips to my ears….

Last Goodbye


Digital Image

Torn between emotions

Now gone dead and dry,

The anguish within

and  dreams in my eyes

Your eloquent promises

That agony, those lies

My soul seeks salvation

I  Say my last good bye



I writhe in pain

I crawl I bleed

The world turns around

But you pay no heed

My shrieks my sighs

My suffering and tears

Pierce through the skies

But fail to reach your ears



The solitude once my pal

Now stabs me so deep

It cripples my soul

I cringe I weep



I stare at the sky

with wait in my eyes

on the threshold of next world

on the last step of life



There’s a tug there’s a struggle

between death and life

Come free me from these shackles

Come and end this strife



Come free me from the bondage

of love, life and death

And give me that lap

where I take my last breath.

The Lost Bird



Warbling in the sky

a chirping bird was I

Humming a canorous song

in the land where I belong



Then one day I had to leave

that verdant place  that sand

and I became a forlorn bird

in a faraway distant land



In that strange place

I was left all alone

missing my home and wondering

where those days have gone

Will those days return?

will there be an end

to this woe of pain?

will I ever find a friend?



Then one day I saw

a flock of birds chirping loud

and wondered if I would find

a dear friend in that crowd



Yes, said a little bird

in sweetest voice I ever heard

I  had found a friend at last

so pretty, demure and shy

We spent each day each moment

just rollicking with joy



But one day that friend vanished

like a shadow in thin air

I searched I screamed I cried

but Oh it was nowhere



He might have moved to

pastures more green

did my love lack

that truth, that sheen?



The sky was sneering

and laughing at me

that very sky

where I once did reign



I sat down to count

my losses n gain

that love those tears

was all this in vain?

was I so foolish?

was I insane?

he could never could read

that deep love that pain

as perhaps my feelings

were not ornate but plain



That love got lost

in the flux of time

the autumn shroud has silenced

that faint vernal chime



But this deplumed bird

will resurge again

n I’ll rise like a phoenix

from ashes of pain.




They tell me your moon is too far

then why are you craving for him

his gleam his glitter is not for you

your share is just one ray so dim



They say you have fallen for a stone

whom no love no feeling can move

but still the love of this one stone

over thousands of roses I chose



They say that in the end

I will get nothing but pain

But loves sees no reason no logic

It never sees losses or gain



He is not yours he never was

some say scoffing with a grin

Come my saviour and ‘redeem’ me

they say loving you is a ‘sin’

The Winter Rain



Its that time of the year again

That chill that calm the winter rain

I stand at the window ,

sipping coffee steaming hot

Seeing clouds play cupid,

giving wings to my thoughts



I so love the Rains

for the nostalgia they evoke

A warm blanket, cold nights

that fireplace and smoke

Come alive in the mind

as if the slumber just broke

I see those lil boots

that I now did outgrow

How we ran around in those

Wet and  drenched head to toe

Feels  like it was just yesterday

and not ages ago



Same coffee same rain

but the times were insane

We’d run , slip and jump

on that bumpy terrain

How we enlivened with laughter

Each street and every lane



Lost in my thoughts I see a  lil kid,  who brings me back to “today’

Cold and hungry  sad and homeless

He is rebuked and shooed away

He is running too he is running fast

but not for fun not to play

he is running  to find a shelter

From harsh cold and rain

I see him fighting with hunger

I see him fighting with pain



Rain for him  is not a time

To play ,to jump and run

He has to earn his loaf of bread

Fight his battle and get things done



But  life  failed to dim his smile

and the glint from his sparkling eyes

I wish some day life smiles at him

And answer all his “whys”



His eyes met mine

and we shared a smile

So bright, so pure,,

I loved the warmth of his smile



I smiled back too

but a guilt crossed my mind

Is there nothing I can do

I wondered I whined

Then voice says to me

There are millions in his clan

Its God who plans our fate

It’s  just a part of His plan



I sit down and take a sip from the cup

Back to the coffee back to my world



But that’s life and its true

That in just a day or two

I’ll Forgot the kid forget his world

Isn’t it what we so often DO?

And wonder  I ponder at questions few..

How do I define people how do I define me n you

are we heart less or just helpless  … ?

or May be both I confess.



Then my thoughts take me afar

To that land across the sea

the seashore sun n sand

That was the place to be



An early winter  evening

of twenty eleven(2011)

Our abode for a week

the place was heaven



The dawn of a new life

And  a life time of glee

Same rain same winters

and those clouds floating free

The  hearts humming a soulful note

mesmerizing as the sea

reminiscing events of  past

all the moments of years four

A time full of warmth

full of magic n amore

talking of all what was

and of what will be

Here we talk of our tomorrows

Near the  window , you and me



The rain captured and treasured

all  the moments  in its heart

That place that time and us

we will never be apart

And years down the line

we’ll cherish this start



A small world is weaved in this box by now


Some thoughts some  dreams

and some journeys our own

A few poems from that evening

some faces unknown

A blue scarf of silk

so carelessly thrown

On the couch besides the window

Where all my thoughts have grown

That  red coffee mug

`inscribed with the word “cheers”

That saw me growing strong

Through smiles and tears

Through confusions and worries

of my growing years

Some questions unanswered

some moments  so dear.



Today right here at  this moment

. I  add some more to the vault .

some fights a few giggles,

and a laughter so bright.

some whispers of the soul

and the promises few

That chit-chat , long walks

some tiffs and frowns too


They’ll  come with the  next rain

to delight to enchant

when the raindrops  touch the earth

and capture  my heart

I so long to feel  the spell

and the magic yet again…

And see the treasures come alive

in next winter rain.
