Always Remember

Always Remember

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue
But don't forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day

I,m a paper

I,m a paper
you can write you,re feelings
scribble you,re anger
use me
absorb you,re tears
dont throw me after use
because when you feel cold
I,ll burn myself to warm you

Me



ME


I cannot promise you a lifetime
''OR''
even a day
for my days and hours
are bound to others
through a life time comitment
what i can offer is
simply ''ME''

The World Of Your Smile



The World Of Your Smile


What would it take to make you smile?
Is it something as simple as the gift of flowers,
Or maybe the enthusiastic greeting of a loved pet,
An ambrace from someone you love?

I`d celebrate with you in your triumphs,
Comfort you in sorrow,
Be a companion in trying times.
If it were in my power
I`d give you the world for your smile.

What does it takes to make you smile?
Something so subtle as the happiness of others,
The soft soughing wind on a hot summer`s day,
Or could I smile at you to prompt one in return?

I`d tell you a thousand times how I care for you,
Listen to you speak if only to hear your voice,
Support you in any endeavor.
I`d give you my shoulder to lean upon when you grow weary,
Hold you until we both drift asleep
I`d give you my world for your smile.

To see the gladness of your heart reflected in your smile
Brings such warmth and happiness to me
To have the chance to share it with you
My world is yours only for the asking.

A real relationship


A real relationship,
Has fights,
Has trust,
Has faith,
Has tears,
Has hurt,
Has sweet smile,
Has genuine laughter,
Has snorts because of the laughter,
Has weird, stupid,
Unnecessary arguments,
Has patience,
Has communication,
Has secrets,
Has jealousy,
And most importantly it has "Love".

From the very day we met

From the very day we met
It seems I never could forget.
The wonders of your loving heart
And the feeling I get that well never part.

I think about you all the time.
And cant believe youre actually mine.
The love I have for you is real.
And as I say this I start to kneel.

I take your hand and squeeze it tight
And look into your loving eyes.
Now I have figured out
That you, are my greatest prize.

I want to say I love you
But really don't know how
The only time I've felt this way
Is right here and now.

Now the time has come at last
I hope it doesn't go by too fast
You have filled the void in my heart
And I really don't know where to start.

I guess I'll just have to come out and say
That I love you more each night and day
You're love for me is all I need
And more than I can stand

I hope that you will take my hand
As I slip on your finger, this little band
It has no beginning, and it has no end
Just like my love for you, my very best friend

Now I have to take a chance
And tell you after all this romance
I want you always by my side
And so I ask you to be my bride.

The thought of you starts me trembling



The thought of you starts me trembling
A fire is raging deep inside my heart
I can still feel your body close to mine
The way you held me so tenderly

I still taste your kisses on my lips
Alone, I hunger for those kisses tonight
My mind recalls the words you spoke
The way your hands explored my body

The time spent with you passed quickly
but your loving has left a burning fire
A fire that only your love can put out and
I wait for your return with open arms.

I dream of the hill that we shared



I dream of the hill that we shared
I only then realised how much you cared,
your smiling face your warm embrace
mean the world to me.

The touch of your hand upon my face,
your true love is full of grace.
You touched my inner most feelings,
like you did from the begining.

So much love ,you opened my eyes,
and for me such a beautiful supprise,
I think im dreaming.
We walk down the hill hand in hand
and I think of flower blossoms all around.

Oh my love for you is so honest and true,
just like the first morning dew.
And if dreams can come true,
my love will only be of you.

How I love you my darling,
If I could make time stand still,
my love would be only of you and the hill.

If, when I get up the skies are grey



If, when I get up the skies are grey…
I think of you…it clears away…

When I get troubled and feeling blue…
I lift my spirit with thoughts of you.

When thoughts of distance sadden me…
I think of us… and what will be…

When I hear of a love that’s true…
My heart only lets me think of you…

What she said was not what she meant.



What she said was not what she meant..

She asked me to stand near her house,
As if a cat's trapping a mouse!

Not thinking what she said was not what she meant,
Never gave it a thought and there I went,
Not knowing that her brothers were hell bent,
Never expected that I'd end up in a tent!

I could hear my friends' advice sounding,
When her brothers started my pounding!
Blind love made me cross all bounds,
I was the rabbit and her brothers were hounds!

The blows I got hit with such might,
I forgot what is left and what's right!
Nearly lost one of my eye's sight,
And was short by 2 inches in height!

After darkness then came the light,
The fact that when it comes to fight,
With one-on-one you may stand some chance,
But with four-on-one you must take the flight!

As they say 'once bitten.. twice shy',
Never dared to say any girl 'Hi'!
To that girl I gave a handwritten register,
That from then on she was my sister!

Tears

Tears


They say that sometimes life's not fair
At times it gives you laughter, at times it gives you tears!

I know that two lives... we shouldn't compare,
But it's a fact my heart can't seem to bear,
That I didn't get my share of laughs,
But deserved this share of tears!

Wouldn''t have hurt if he was straight,
And had made clearer my fate!
After so long making me wait,
He tells me that it is too late!

The thought of losing someone dear,
Was in fact of my greatest of fears,
That loss has given me pain, which my heart forever bears,
No matter how hard I try to hide, it come out in drops of tears!

I Wish....

I Wish....

I wish in such a morning, I find myself awake
I'm lying below a tree by the side of a lake!
The sweet songs of the birds echo in my ears
The pristne and serene landscapes erase all my fears!

As a slow and gentle breeze pushes the lake's waves,
A pearly white cascade falls beside the caves!
I take a deep breath and relish the fresh air,
A place so untouched that none's ever been there!

Like a glass of cold water on a hot summer's day
My soul finding comfort in just the similar way,
Gazing the clear blue sky in the grass there I lay,
I wish it's not a dream and forever there I stay!

She's My Destination

She's My Destination


Her mind is crystal,her heart is gold
When I look into her eyes, I become stone cold!
To the world I'm tough, but infront of her I just fold,
I just cannot move, she's got me in such a hold!

Her thoughts so clear,her acts so pure
Every move she makes beckons,all her looks allure!
Even about certainties,I've become unsure
For my heart's disease,I believe she's the only cure!

What do I do next, I just don't know
Can't figure out which way should I go!
She's given me such a high, can't think of getting low
She's holding the bow, pierced my heart with an arrow!

Difficult for me is now, living in seperation
I pray she sees my love's real and not an abberation!
Every single second, my heart makes the affirmation
Her love is my road and she's my destination!

The beast in me

THE BEAST IN ME!

The beast in me shrieks for peace,
The pain its going through never seems to ease!
I plead to the Lord to ease this pain,
Before the world says... never again!

The Beast In me is full of dark fire,
A fire which always burns and never ceases to retire!
Its a volcano about to explode,
Every passing moment only increases its load!

It's the beast's wish, to be hit by a lightning bolt,
Before it unleashes a fiery revolt!
It wishes the bolt lights up its darkened heart,
As it has never seen the light from its very start!

It's heart's a dark ocean, full of raging storms
With high tides of pain beyond physical norms!
I wish those storms never go on and merge,
As this would unleash the beast to emerge!

People come people go



People come people go
'Need to be reminded so!
Time never stands still..
Only obeys God's will!

Love life, love friends,
Life's journey, never ends!
Different phases, different faces,
Same result different cases!

Cherish always what you've got,
Not waste time on what you lost!
What's gone ... never meant for you,
What remains was sent for You!

On Another's Sorrow


On Another's Sorrow

Can I see another's woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief,
And not seek for kind relief?

Can I see a falling tear,
And not feel my sorrow's share?
Can a father see his child
Weep, nor be with sorrow filled?

Can a mother sit and hear
An infant groan, an infant fear?
No, no! never can it be!
Never, never can it be!

And can He who smiles on all
Hear the wren with sorrows small,
Hear the small bird's grief and care,
Hear the woes that infants bear -

And not sit beside the nest,
Pouring pity in their breast,
And not sit the cradle near,
Weeping tear on infant's tear?

And not sit both night and day,
Wiping all our tears away?
O no! never can it be!
Never, never can it be!

He doth give His joy to all:
He becomes an infant small,
He becomes a man of woe,
He doth feel the sorrow too.

Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by:
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.

O He gives to us His joy,
That our grief He may destroy:
Till our grief is fled and gone
He doth sit by us and moan.

Can I see another's woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief,
And not seek for kind relief?

Can I see a falling tear,
And not feel my sorrow's share?
Can a father see his child
Weep, nor be with sorrow filled?

Can a mother sit and hear
An infant groan, an infant fear?
No, no! never can it be!
Never, never can it be!

And can He who smiles on all
Hear the wren with sorrows small,
Hear the small bird's grief and care,
Hear the woes that infants bear -

And not sit beside the nest,
Pouring pity in their breast,
And not sit the cradle near,
Weeping tear on infant's tear?

And not sit both night and day,
Wiping all our tears away?
O no! never can it be!
Never, never can it be!

He doth give His joy to all:
He becomes an infant small,
He becomes a man of woe,
He doth feel the sorrow too.

Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by:
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.

O He gives to us His joy,
That our grief He may destroy:
Till our grief is fled and gone
He doth sit by us and moan.

Sorrow came today

Sorrow came today,
And left me full of shame,
It’s right down here inside of me,
A feeling of disdain.

We cannot all defend ourselves,
As do the mighty foe,
Please rid me of this emptiness,
Just let this sorrow go.

Here in the twilight hour,
I feel like I could die;
When sorrow comes a rushing in,
To send me to the sky.

In Sorrow

In sorrow,
She mourns her beloved son,
What’s next to follow,
No one knows.

In sorrow,
He mourns his beloved daughter,
What’s next to follow,
His heart is hollow.

In sorrow,
She mourns her beloved husband,
What’s next to follow,
She is now a widow.

In sorrow,
He mourns his beloved wife,
What’s next to follow,
His desire for life is renounced to zero.

In sorrow,
They mourn the passing of a dear friend,
Someone they wished to be there tomorrow,
It hurts without pretext, whatever sorrow sends.

And we know and I know,
Sorrow returns not the life’s it borrows,
Sorrow is a walking deadly shadow,
Sorrow is the virus we dread tomorrow.
Sorrow is the devils spell of lethal horrors

Therefore my dear fellows,
In sorrow no more I mourn her sorrow,
In sorrow,
I have closed on her all my doors and windows.

A fat girl Standing all alone

Fat Girl


A fat girl
Standing all alone
Such a big heart
But only God that knows

She cries tears of pain
But not a single soul would know
Such a big heart
But no one to hold

She suffers through life
But deserves much more
She opens her heart
But every man slams the door

A fat girl
Standing all alone
Such a big heart
But no one will ever know

Sometimes We Wish To Be Care Free



Sometimes


Sometimes We Wish

To Be Care Free

Like An Innocent Child

Without A Single Worry

The Tension In Life

To Dissolve Away

The Race To Gain Wealth

We Have To Follow Every Day

Seems To Be Just Meaningless

Sometimes We Want Ourselves

To Be Emotionless And Feeling Free

So What Is Said Or Done To Us

Remain Immune To All Around Us.

If You Forget Me

If You Forget Me


I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine

How Great My Grief

How Great My Grief

How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee!
- Have the slow years not brought to view
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Nor memory shaped old times anew,
Nor loving-kindness helped to show thee
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee

How pleasant it is at the end of the day

How pleasant it is at the end of the day,
No follies to have to repent,

But reflect on the past and be able to say,
My time has been properly spent!

When I’ve done all my business with patience and care,
And been good, and obliging, and kind,
I lie on my pillow and sleep away there,
With a happy and peaceable mind.

Instead of all this, if it must be confest,
That I careless and idle have been,
I lie down as usual, and go to my rest,
But feel discontented within.

Then as I dislike all the trouble I’ve had,
In future I’ll try to prevent it,
For I never am naughty without being sad,
Or good—without being contented.

Follow Me

Follow Me


Take my hand and follow me
to that place I long to be.
Take my hand and trust my way,
in that place forever stay.
Follow me toward the sand;
we'll run and play, hand in hand.
Take my heart and hold it true;
forever I'll stay close to you.
Seize my words and listen well,
then forever I will tell.
Release your heart and feelings too,
just as I will do for you.
Trust your heart and follow me,
to that place we long to be

Between The Miles

Between The Miles
Because existence can become severe
in one day,
just sense me and I'll be there.
In the minds eye,
I'm not so far away.
If you hold out your hand,
in the whispers,
I'll become the zephyr.
and besiege you.
If your eye's upon the stars,
in the crystalline darkness,
I'll become the moon.
And the light shall guide you.
If you rest upon the ground,
in the warmth,
I'll become the grass.
And embrace you.
If you turn outside,
in the wetness,
I'll become the rain.
An upon your forehead, kiss you.
If you free the air,
in the light of day,
I'll become the sun.
And smile for you.

Between the miles-
if you need me.
If you need a friend.
Let me be the friend, I want to be

Up In The Sky

Up In The Sky


When you are down
And you want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

What you will see
Are the stars above,
And all you need
Is to proclaim your love.

Who you will find
And see so clear,
Are friends in mind
You want to hold near.

Whenever you need them
Just look up high,
Call their name
And see them fly.

Every friend you meet
Owns a star
And you can see them
No matter how far.

Whenever you are down
And want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

Rain

Rain


When it rains
The soft grey sky
Drifts to the ground
Brown rivulets
Trickle away
Trickle away
Washing sadness down
Weather vanes
Weep and turn
Weep and turn
Forgetting in the damp and grey
That by and by
The sun will shine
Sun will shine
By and by
The sun will shine

Rain is Sweet


Rain is sweet

It drips and drops

You can dance in the rain

And even drink the rain.

I love rain.

Rain is the water that falls from the clouds

From the beautiful sky at night.

I love the dancing rain that comes

And drips down.

It sparkles in the night of the moon,

On the leaves and on the grass.

Rain is so sweet.

Rain is clear and drips down to earth.

It feels wet and soggy.

It looks like tears from my eyes

Touches my heart and

Makes me happy.

I love the rain.

Waiting For You

Waiting For You

I still remember those days
I still remember those silly fights,
I still remember myself,
Crying over sleepless nights..
I still remember your smile,
I still remember your gaze,
I still remember myself,
Catching you through various ways..
I still remember those days,
When we were together,
Yes I do remember you,
Saying this love's forever..
I still remember when we talked,
Continuously for hours,
I still remember how my words then,
Changed from sweet to sour..
I don't know why you left me,
I ask myself what I said,
Was it in my destiny?
The forever love so easily fades?
I remember this evil past,
And hope in the upcoming days,
He will do a miracle,
And bless me with His Grace..
If my love is true,
He will bring us together,
I know He loves me too,
And wants us to be a couple..
So I remember those days and finally smile,
I know God has a plan for me,
So I'll wait for a while,
I will wait for you,
I will wait for you baby,
Though it may take long,
I will wait and never cry,
Because the show must go on,
Marrying you dear,
The Love Of My Life

Everyday The dates keep changing

The dates keep changing

But with every setting sun

the time pilfers you away from me

Everyday the velvet meadow

keeps on losing its butterflies

After The Storm


After The Storm

along the way,
a road we travel
less,
and less
a place
of earthen heaven
where barley
swayed,
sunshine’s laughter
filled our days
hearts despondent
overgrown,
by forgotten dreams
gray clouds
brew in waver
another evening storm
ready to strike
with moments,
of revelation
no place
can we find cover
but in
each others arms
and
after the tepid tears
fall
I will hold you more tightly
re-sowing,
dormant seeds
to our love,

Rose garden


ROSE GARDEN

tonight

i promise you

a rose garden

dead centre in my heart

rainbow colours

as colourful as you

when the morning sun

cut diamonds from their dew

i will take you smile

and paint our love

over oceans wide

and mountains high

for the world to see

the truth

between you and me

There are no words to describe how beautiful she is



There are no words to describe how beautiful she is,
or how special she is,
or my love for her.
To put these things into words would be to define them,
To quantify them, which means to limit them.
There would be a beginning and an end.
There is no definition fitting, nor any limit,
nor beginning or end to her beauty,
or to how special she is, or my love for her.

This pair of small eyes



This pair of small eyes,
Help in saying big things,
Love not expressed from lips,
Is confessed by a wink.

At any place in the world,
Her eyes keep searching for me,
Sparkle of her eyes is moved to her lips,
After she finds me.

Each feeling of her heart,
Is said by eyes of hers
Whenever I leave her,
Droplets of water stroll down in form of tears.

Can always find,
Unconditional love for me in her eyes,
Confirming the thought to be true,
That the pair never says lies.

I have a feeling,
She has a straight heart to eye connection,
As she expresses everything, by her eyes,
That?s needs to be mentioned.

When I can?t find her eyes around me,
Don?t know what happens to my day,
Smile from my visage,
Remains at bay.

In the night when I lie on a gathered hay,
Under the starry layer of the endless worlds,
I trace your eyes in the maze of stars,
Like a pattern laid out by two beautiful pearls.

This pair of small eyes,
Help in saying big things,
Love not expressed from lips,
Is confessed by a wink.

I chose to love you in silence

I chose to love you in silence
For in silence I find no rejection

I chose to love you in loneliness
For in loneliness non-one owns you,but me

I chose to adore you from a distance
for distance will shield me from pain

I chose to kiss you in the wind
for the wind is gentler than my lips

I chose to hold you in my dreams
for in my dreams.....you have no end..

The hissing wind and the swishing sea


Dedicated to our beloved quaid e azam


The hissing wind and the swishing sea
with a vengeance turns the wind to lee

Ragging sails, the ship is free
Seagull screams in the distance see

Distraught people in a ship at sway
Creaking stern and the ropes'll, fray

Vociferous sounds of the angry spray
To ghastly thoughts the heart a prey

Not a soul aboard that doth not pray
Rising hands against the wicked gray

O' Lord 'Save us from the swishing array'
Confusion mounting screams of dismay

Such was the scene and even yet
A man in white I cannot forget

Unaware of all the cold and wet
he sat eyes closed and face all set

He muttered to himself now and then
free from feelings of where and when

The calm of his face in darkness shown
with a majestic grandeur; he left his throne

Thus he spoke to the people aloud
'Brothers and sisters look at the cloud

The lord remembers his creation's plight
Through the crevice comes a ray of light

The rescue boats you need not fight
For yonder look the land’s in sight'

Broken land has long since died



Broken land has long since died,
clouds now for years have lied.
The awaited rains so often fail.
Million’s hearts with hunger wail.
Scorching sun bears to burn.
Hardened tilth, refuses to turn.
No burden beast left with a drive,
nor baked son who harkens strive.
The wooden yolk cracked and dry,
as sheep and dogs all lazy lie.
Village square where elders sat,
laughed and jeered, tobacco spat.
Drinks they downed by the score,
with caution now in tea cups pour.
“Targa clan’s women are whores….
incredible tusks of a shot down boar.”
Broken dangles the shanty’s door,
and hollow rings the folksy lore.
Humming wheel of miller’s store.
Hurt and pain of farmers bore.
That drove it once, the feed is dry,
at parks no more the children cry.
Silent cringes the neighbor’s cat.
Now scarce to see a scurrying rat.
The calling kith, from dusty deed,
watch with horror, our lives bleed.
Wordless in graves our fallen kin.
While we entombed in our dusty bin.
Hear their footsteps echo still.
As we slink! The graveyards fill

From fated gashes gurgle streams

From fated gashes gurgle streams.
Snatch carmine rags from the seams.
Where gold peaks, from proud hills.
Peppers life in dales, humming mills.

A son lies sans cap and open mouth.
Softly on grasses that creep from south.
Sleeps, stretched, under the blue sky,
pale in his green bed where rain drops fly.

Gladioli tickle his feet, he sleeps, smiles.
Like a stricken child without the guiles.
Cradle softly nature, for he is cold.
Ah! In life, was so warm and bold.

No earthly incense shall quiver the nare.
Nor mortal cares transgress his lair.
He sleeps in the sun, hand on his breast.
Calm! Red roses ooze from the side of his chest.

Last breaths he exhales and sighs

Last breaths he exhales and sighs.
He lies so still and does not move.
Mother earth’s wished him byes,
gyrating youth now dancing groove.

Darkness swallows, runs amok,
crescent of death swallows land and sea.
From far far Oceania to Innsbruck,
cares not dawn for these years to be.

Across faded land and jaded life,
shiny facades and abject fleas,
through peeling bells and human strife,
humming birds and ceaseless bees.

Like caution too is today cloth to wind.
Auld Lang Syne and this pack’o six.
Like clothes too bonds of human kind.
Revel nubile youth in a heady mix.

For millennia sages forced to drink,
deathly potions to tread in immortal time.
Our lives too fast gone in a wink,
drowned years now, not worth a dime.

Fiery hands paint the dying skies,
reflect and grimace at the sham of shine.
And as tick by tick the night dies,
Wonder, what is yours and what is mine?

Mornings come and mornings go

Mornings come and mornings go.
Ceaseless winds timeless blow.

As kismet rolls its enduring gall.
Another domino tumbles falls.

In the merge of days and nights.
Or the urge of dizzying heights.

Awed we gape unfolding paths,
barren scapes, yon greener swaths.

In Hedonic shadows collecting debts.
Karma silent prances, weaving nets.

Along rut and creek of passing days,
jilted songs and jarring forays.

Oblivious we sail on endless fret.
Lonely to hush of the last sunset.

Magic in thine words swirls around

Magic in thine words swirls around,
aplenty abounds.
Over frozen wastes,
glen and sculpted fate,
wandering gypsy flute sounds.
Waft winds melodious songs.
Far of desires,
enmesh conspire.
Ah! those thongs.
Heard over daily wandering trysts,
amaze in coiling mists,
wrap ensconce.
Bundled beset in dazzling morns,
like gold cascades from corns.
With me covert and surge,
in blinding urge.
Reality conceals.
Wishes congeals.
I silent for reassurance, grope.
Tumble, befuddled hope.
Reverie thus elopes.
Sun and the moon dance,
an eerie romance,
like northern lights.
Contrite!
In shafts of elusive delight.
The distances howl.
In shadows prowl
Lie by my companion’s jowl.

A bundle dropped in far off hut



A bundle dropped in far off hut
a lumbering pelican eyes shut

Flapping wings in departing glide
Amply leers at the starting slide

Slowly fades in morning mists
In wake and vortex strewn gists

On cotton pledgets by loving hands
skip and dance on burning sands

pranced by ponds and banyan trees
chewed on canes, combs of bees

Ebb and flow of many a tide
Cantor, gallop of youthful ride

hand in hand skip and dance
as fate casts a bemused glance

pitter and patter of tender feet
in time to steady trudging sleet

hushed reflect the fading eyes
and painful sear of broken ties

snatched moments on the sly
truth bobbles on many a lie

Kaput heart and beaten brow
Splintered yolk and broken plough

From hearty laugh to silent dusk
from cheesy tops to dried rusk

lustrous verve to barren dune
Blusterous fresh to dried prune

Fading display of blurry sights
Tangled play of st Elmo’s lights

Numbered days on weary ways
Befuddled slog in swirling clays

those swanky leathers now lay by rot
but The Cobbler’s anvil is searing hot

Clouds float as billowing clumps

Clouds float as billowing clumps,
seeding life deep in earth.
Wandering across the lazy humps,
goat and gazelle shading birth.

Lavender jasmine burst in blooms,
as roses peer at you and me.
striking throw out vivid plumes,
nature’s marvels for us to see.

Soft the music of falling rain,
dancing drops on cobbled walks
life proclaimed for sown grain,
fluffy birds on bursting stalks

distant honk that steamers make,
waft across those waters green.
as dancing salmon in their wake,
showoff style and their sheen.

lean and dry days lost behind,
to buzz of mills and copious goods.
nature’s gift is smiling kind,
stirring bears in sleepy woods.

nectar ooze from many a flowers,
in happy dusks and breezy morns.
you and me in yon blissful stars,
by shade of tree and rustling corns.

An angel whispered me


Hey!
An angel whispered me.
Said,
all the roses that you see.
Butterflies,
and the ceaseless honey bee.
They,
so happy gay and free,
add,
such color to our world,
on,
these amazing sunny days,
Pray,
you heard what I had to say,
gazing,
out an azure lapping bay,
It’s,
so due jingles of her birthday.
Otherwise,
wouldn’t be a beautiful sunny day,
never,
Until she graced this worldly way.
You!
Tender and gorgeous dreamy babe,
Always,
giggle and tell me to behave.

I am a baby girl for mum and dad

I am a baby girl for mum and dad
Toiling hard for some hefty wad
Calm and composed but mostly mad

By the waters or over the sedge
Seasons have their sullenly edge
between my moods a surely wedge

he’s been around for a year or more
finding time amid work and chore
speaks so glibly of tale and lore

Oh! I need to do my girly bit
He’ll surely run if I let him hit
Let him be for picking some nit

Days and nights are whizzing past
Don’t bear when we were online last
But it seems for him the die is cast..

An aged face in the dead of night



An aged face in the dead of night
Flashing blinkers coax a fight

Bleeps are myriad and so the lamps
Age and gurney falter over ramps

Raanu and Laago by old lady’s side
Comforting the jerks of a bumpy ride

Tending and tucking trailing lines
A score of tubes and cluttered twines

Dr Ramee and Nasaree by patient’s bed
Wondering of the wind, the code is red

Labored the breaths, flicker the lights
Through lead glass pane vexing sights

Nurses and doctors spin like tops
As the CT tech in earnest hops

Composed the nurses, counting drops
Cleaner by the door side with her mops

Clueless and detached the maids eyes
A year of turmoil won’t build those ties

In muddle of languages no us or them
Professional and cool my staff is a gem

The huff and puff of strained thread
Amid whirr of my CT’s motorized bed

Weary eyes on the vital displays
For pulses now lap at distant bays

Baking days and desolate nights

Baking days and desolate nights
Well enshrined from far off lights
By daunting minarets high above
Scarce the flutter of a passing dove
Raging storms that rise to heights
Promises engulf in lasting blights
Alien lands stretch all around
How far away life’s muffled sound

Amid sandy land and strewn rocks
Lies Auburn curls with lil’ Goldilocks

Adorned in shards and twisted steel
By contorted circle of a rides wheel
Got with useless shekel’s, pounds
Soaked and ruddy distant mounds
Never a murmur shall escape
From a treacherous landscape
Lie both together clipped wing
Like in life never to ask a thing

Amid sandy land and strewn rocks
Lies Auburn curls with lil’ Goldilocks

All they knew was care and give
for else to love and solemnly live
yanked by fate for heaven’s delight
angel’s abode and nameless sight
the best aloft in earnest leave
sprouting soaked hearts sieve
left behind in sobs and heave
streaming tears, eternal grieve

Amid sandy stretch of strewn rocks
Lies Auburn curls with lil’ Goldilocks

If you’re sick or even worse



If you’re sick or even worse
thank lord for making a nurse

Tender care and her vows
Shiny white and her bows

Broken bone or ego bruised
She by your side till its fused

Do her job with an even keel
ease the pain her patients feel

Oft she’s needed for a smile
For a dying soul, time to while

Words of comfort that she says
Beam as beacons and its rays

Do what she can to do you mend
Failing which for the doctor send

Stand by you to have you hope
As you vex and answers grope

Then there surly comes the day
She’ll lend a hand on your way

To muse the gist of a special friend
Who stood by you to the final end

In heated frenzy of swirling times


In heated frenzy of swirling times
Peeling bells oft deafen chimes

In knotted string of life’s turns
Choking sighs the monster churns

As caravans inch the woven paths
Down the way few emerald swaths

Water and care for greener buds
Yanked in frenzied harsher thuds

Ageless dominions care two hoots
for trustful tender springy shoots

safe in the shadow of shady trees
Seek that nature’s harsh decrees

Wither and wilt of a promising morn
Whet the ethers, their vengeful scorn

Tattered strings frayed and worn
barely hold as weights are borne

Ahead! The horizons darken yet
to a travelers brow adding fret

Oh! Come my friend!


Oh! Come my friend!
hop this ledge of borrowed time!
Let's do the stars, not blink at life
Nor lose forays to silent winks, that
still, in a hazy space wretchedly lost, to
unfold the promise of natures mirth; which
stems and bubbles in vistas grim
yield ourselves to outlandish whims
then peep and peer like children lost
with ginger hands to tattoo frosts
beam through crevices at the first full rays
at glistening columns of piled up hays
Wrest from an hourglass elusive dreams
to seek from time, the where and when
from whence the light shall silently call
lift from our face the numbing pal
let's go and see!
Lets tap in glee!
let's turn the tide of seas, the moon...
shield our naked being from noon..
solve the mystery of a rainbow’s dance
so in a wholesome happiness prance
float on the skies and sands alike
wide eyed soar in dazed amaze
as body and soul the heavens graze.
Sleep like an angel in natures lap
leisurely wake and blissfully clap
from divine dales of pleasing slumber
ripe flowers and fruits pluck in numbers
float on waves of a melodious spring
past dark and silent dreary nights
past shoal and grove of unseemly sights
touch those bewildering foggy dreams...
float on the mist of a breaking dawn
naughtily pluck the veil of a night
let's go and see the moonlit sky, to
shake the limbs of frozen trees
soar with the birds and hum with the bees.
let's go and steal the rising sun
absorb the bracing rays as one
Oh, come my friend
before it dips, low again
before the day, is lost in vain.

Piling mounds of plastic bags

Piling mounds of plastic bags.
Rotting heaps of oily rags.
Sifting ,rifting weathered hags.
Cut and scarred by piercing jags.

Baking days and restless nights.
Bickering bouts and endless fights.
Talk of walks and animal rights.
Acrid smoke and filtered lights.

Gov, they say! Blares a bountiful crop.
Ouch! Damned nail in that broken mop.

Crowing rooks are the only birds.
Barking dogs are intently heard.
Decked up sahib’s that never erred
at foraging kids spit nasty words.

Ages it’s been since I’ve been fed.
Bare my feet and bare my head.
It’s almost June and I will be bled.
At times I wish I’d rather be dead.

Gov, they say! Blares a bountiful crop.
Ouch! Damned nail in that broken mop.

Yesterday I found a reasonable hat.
Hadn’t it been for the scurrying rat,
the pestering drone of a shiny gnat.
Might’ve stumbled on a matching mat .

The wail of the preacher hauls me up.
In vain I search for the empty cup.
I clutch my tummy and want to sup.
Wish I’d slept and not woken up.

Gov, they say! Blares a bountiful crop.
Ouch! Damned nail in that broken mop.

That grumpy man he strangely hops.
Leans on the stick and the leg he lops.
His tatters bound with fraying ropes
Painfully bent at the bin he gropes.

Cushioned and soft is where I lay.
Just as it was when I slept on hay
My own home on a patch of clay.
Open spaces for my kids to play.

Gov, they say! Blares a bountiful crop.
Ouch! Damned nail in that broken mop.

Now home is here, this festering heap.
On smoldering scrap and offal steep.
Damn sulking kids they always weep.
Had some crumbs and I want to sleep.

My aching limbs are sore and frail.
If only some one heard me wail.
At a feverish pitch I rant and rail.
Add more pages to my woeful tale.

Gov, they say! Blares a bountiful crop.
Ouch! Damned nail in that broken mop.

Ride to the distant villages and fairs

Ride to the distant villages and fairs
Ride them waves or wing the airs
Ascend the mounts or descend the stairs

Oh, go yea my men! To the banks of Nile
Search amid ripened empire’s pile
Search by the Euphrates for a man of style

stands out above the milling throng
speaks the tongues of millions strong
who’s soul is pure, has done no wrong

knows his Quran and The Holy Scripts
carefree to the tide of floes and drifts
quickly through logic his mind sifts

must be a master of counting games
well versed in stars and their names
the physical laws his wit tames

sane sagacious and balanced of keel
soft at heart but a man of steel
the worldly riches flow by his heel

Shariah his shroud and the Fiqa too
bold and chivalrous at the art of slew
his voice to the ears melodious dew

hold against push and lecher’s pull
to preach and act Islam in its full
command great domes of our Istanbul

go ye by steed, by leap or bound!
such is the man, I decree be found!
such a man, so we hold our ground!”
