My Perfect Romance

Walk with me to my beautiful garden.
With affectionate care have I nurtured it, I want to show.
If it pleases you the least, then please do pardon.
For I love you more than flowers and the blossoms you must know.

Talk to me my darling of your hopes and dreams.
Hold me close like never.
It's been ages since we've spent time together it seems.
I wonder if moment like this we can have ever?

To you the prettiest of the roses plucked I'd give.
Tell me if you'll forever be mine?
Swear to me you'd ne'er leave.
Like stars in the sky our love must shine.

Together I want us to grow old in coming days.
Your love is one thing I'd oft long for.
I'll promise to be by your side always.
And our love will grow ever more.

We would see the sun hide.
You and me together will rejoice  the joy of moonlit night.
Therein you'd hug me tight with your arms open wide.
With moon shining over the garden, making it the loveliest sight.

Flowers dancing to the rhythm of the wind.
We'd hear the crickets chirp and see the fire flies fly.
The message of love and joy like it all has to send.
Thus, our bond will get stronger as time goes by.

God’s child


He said, “Hey! child what are you afraid of;
Of love or betrayal?;
Of pain or happiness?;
Of acceptance or denial?;
Of light or darkness?"

“Come to me my dear” said He.
“I shall give you rest;
 Comfort you shall have from me”
“I’ll heal your wounded heart to the best”

 He says,” You can talk to me of your sorrow”
“Better days are yet to come”
“You’re burdened deep down I know
And in my paradise you shall have an eternal home”

“Like men, you’ll ne’er see a deceit in my heavenly kingdom”
“Be not afraid of betrayal my child.”
“My home is in no way like your mother earth that is now in doom”
“All you’d hear from me are the words so mild”

“I have heard your silent prayers”
“I have seen you cry”
“But I gave you the strength to fight all your fears”
“Oft you almost gave up and asked yourself why?”

“But my child you must know, I’ll ne’er deny you”
Even your own flesh and blood may abandon you in days few
“In my own image I have created you”
“You are my precious creation if you ever knew”

“Don’t be afraid of darkness”
“Full of undying lights is my paradise”
“There you need not worry of any sickness.
“People you’d come across there are the wisest of the wise”

“In heaven all you’d have from me is an eternal life”
“And no one there shall die of old age weakness”
“How tired must you be fighting to survive”
“There you shall not see the season of bleakness”

“Like nowhere else you’ll see the prettiest flowers bloom”
“Therein you’ll rejoice in peace”
“Never will you see the days of gloom”
 He then says, “My child, the kingdom of heavenly is what i'm afraid my children may miss”

My horror escape


One night was i walking down the alley alone in the dark.
Silence there was everywhere except for the sound of the dogs bark.
It sent me down a sudden chill.
Faster my heart was beating as I could feel.

A ghostly figure i saw at a distance.
Like a shadow it seemed to follow me for instance.
Nearer it was approaching as i began to look.
In fear i then shook.

Faster i then began to walk.
Saliva I was swallowing and I couldn't talk.
I walked towards home in haste.
Even a second of time I wouldn't want to waste.

Persistently my heart was beating with fear.
To turn back and look who would dare?
Felt like heart was in my mouth.
But I could not even shout.

In fear i felt the sweat from my brow fall.
Desperate i was to see someone one around i could call.
Suffocating it was and I was running short of breath.
Have i been walking for fifteen minutes or so and swear i was afraid.

Suddenly i heard my own scream.
Ah! Gosh it was just a dream.
My throat had dried out of thirst.
All l needed was the water first.

I had left the television on.
There was a horror movie still being shown.
I then realized it was a nightmare.
Or a dream it was rarest of rare.

I breathed a sigh of relief.
Still wondering in disbelief.
Of the clock i heard a tick tock.
I saw it was the morning's 2 O'clock.

“My Final Adieu”

Dear, you've from me my final adieu.
My heart is bleeding in blue.
For in pieces you've left it broken.
And in grief it is sunken.

Great were you in deluding me.
While you were the one with whom I always longed to be.
We’d Share joys and sorrows to one another
And forever we promised to love each other.

It always felt good when you played with my hair.
And I thought it to be your care.
Your arms around made me feel so safe.
But from now on this is one thing I’ll always crave.

Memorable were the days we spent together.
Those moments I’ll cherish forever.
While with you, was I always over the moon.
Yet ne’er did I realize my joy was coming to an end soon.

Still pondering what made you change your mind?
Tried hard but no valid reasons could I find.
Ne’er knew you’d love me for the sake.
Those promises were nothing but fake.

Sacrifices I did make for our relationship.
And we’ve been through all sorts of hardship.
But commitment from your way ne’er came easily.
Perhaps you ne’er took the things genuinely.

Nothing in this world seems to last forever.
Not even so called the true love of a lover.
There were times when we hated to live apart.
And we’d wish we ne’er had to depart.

At this very instant feel like I’m all alone.
For you’ve left me forever and gone.
You took my love for granted, I don’t know why?
May be someday we’re meant to say forever good bye.

 (Note:- This poem was written a decade back,but it is being published for the first time here)

Hidden Scars


Wounded heart we all have l know.
Scars it has that don't show.
From deep inside it kills.
And you know how it feels.

Bleeding heart who really can see?
Not you not even me.
What we just feel is the pain.
It hurts you time and again.

Heart aches are hard oft to deal.
Yet time somehow can heal.
Dealing with the pain isn't an easy task.
But why keep holding unto broken heart I ask?

Of certain things we've to let go.
Then you'd know life has new things to show.
We've to overcome the pain in a way.
Thus you'll begin to feel good again some day.

“ Death" The invisible shadow

Since ancient era, death remains the greatest mystery.
A mystery still unresolved in mankind’s history.
One instant we’re lively and alive.
Yet another moment we’re battling with life.

Oft like an invisible spirit comes the death.
With its unexpected arrival,makes us take our last breath.
Feels like its watching you always from somewhere.
Like a shadow it follows you everywhere.

Death makes its arrival like that of an uninvited guest.
It brings a mournful day by putting someone at rest.
So unkindly it stops the heart beat
A helpless creature as we're even do away with it.

How much miseries are caused is not a bit of its care.
What choices have we got though we fear?
Unimaginable pain one has to bear.
And the voices of the parted ones no longer can we hear.

Losing someone forever brings sorrow so deep.
And in sorrows our heart'll weep.
While we’re gone,more of a memory we become.
Just in thoughts we may live in years to come.

Awfully death is certain for everyone.
From it no one can ever hide or run.
For what could be more valuable than life?
And how hard do we toil to survive?

In the end,all the riches does it matter?
Wealth amassed, fame earned will it be worth the flatter?
Is anything there that can actually be taken?
Even your much loved body is to be forsaken.

With every breaking dawn, if we may rise is oft doubtful.
Yet, one more day we may live is what one ought to be hopeful.
Learn to make life meaningful somehow.
And begin to treasure every moment you’ve right now.

Value every moment that makes you smile.
Hold it all close to your heart for a while.
Forgive those who’ve hurt you and hated.
As you go, too hefty will it be to carry the burden of hatred.

Worry not if you’d have a peaceful rest.
In all the things you do just try giving your best.
When you leave, have no more fear.
For in the thoughts of our beloved’s we'd always there.

I am no more me.


I'm no more me.
From deep inside I can see.
My youthfulness is fading away.
Slowly my body is giving its way.

Through periods of transition I've been.
Lot more of alterations are yet to be seen.
I've bloomed from a bud hither.
And in the sand as a rose I shall wither.

Reflection of my wrinkling image I see in the mirror.
Thoughts of being old and ugly oft gives me the horror.
Yet from reality who can run?
Hard it is even to shun.

At heart I'm still young.
It's joyed upon hearing a love song.
With maturity I now behave.
Yet for few things, like a child I still crave.

Humiliations have made me humble.
My spirit ne'er sunk when things seem to tumble.
Rejections and fear couldn't break me down.
For things aren't bad as we suppose and frown.

At times dejections and failure I did face.
But I learnt to accept it with a grace.
I've had good experiences and the bad.
With honesty I've lived and for which I'm glad.

Yet I'm no more me.
I'm getting older and wiser as I can be.
Someday my corpse will be laid to rest.
I shall go back to where I belong, the dust.
