Angel exists !

To the one who stood by your side!
when life took u on a roller coaster ride!
In all times, high and low!
when life gave you a sudden blow!
He held your hand and gave you light!
when you cried for help in the darkest night!
He pushed you to have faith and give it a start!
He is there always, when a beat was skipped by your heart!
to the one who asked u to catch the train in the life’s station!
to the one who made you believe that you are a beautiful creation!
indeed God sends some angels in disguise!
who only makes a sea of happiness from the tears of your eyes!
have faith, when you go down..!
don’t be a puppet of the negative clown!
to the friend who said this all!!
who told you, you will stand tall!!
….friends like these are fairies and blessing..!
… who sticks by you and clears all your messing!!

पिता

हाथ पकड़ कर चलना सिखाते हैं
कंधे पे बैठा कर दुनिया घुमाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

मेहनत कर पैसे कमाते हैं ,
मैं कर लूँगा, हमेशा यही बताते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

खुद की आकांक्षाओं को त्याग कर  ,
हमारी हर इच्छा का बोझ वो उठाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

थकावट का एहसास होने पर भी 
वो कभी हमसे बयां नही कर पाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

गलती करने पर डाँट लगाते हैं
बाद में प्यार भी जताते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

दूर रहकर भी हमारी उलझन वो सुलझाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

जीवन के प्रत्येक पड़ाव को वो
अपने अनुभव से समझाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

कभी उदासीनता आने पर
अपने किस्से कहानियों से हमें रिझाते हैं
ये जो शख्स है वो पिता कहलाते हैं।।

The stars bring us closer

The stars bring us closer

If you promise to share tonight with me
I’ll dance with you on the Milky Way.
No star in the sky shines brighter than you.
They wish they could glow that bright too.

We see them fall one by one.
Reaching out for a tiny sun.
In one moment our hands connect
As we try to catch the same star.

You may not be by my side,
But together we share the sky
Like a dream so surreal
We spread our wings and fly

The lights up high show us the path
To space’s cosmic void.
Knowing in a way we’re together
I could stare at the sky forever

I’ll be yours

In your darkest times I will be your light.
When you can’t see I’ll be your sight.
At your weakest I’ll be your shield,
And the sword in which you wield.
I’ll love you with every bit of my heart.
Our souls intertwined never to part.
You have eyes warm, and brown
And your voice what a beautiful sound.
You can have me even if you can’t see.
Forever, and always it’s just you, and me.

Underneath a perfect sky

Underneath a perfect sky
The stars have never looked so dull
When warmth radiates from you like fire
A cosmic moment shared with you
A scene the gods must admire
Underneath this sky for two
We lay side by side til the morning comes
When we’re old we’ll look back at this
And remember when we were young
When the only thing that mattered was us
Connected by a thread of trust
Into each other’s eyes we stare
Getting lost in we know not where
My love I can see you here now
My heart has never screamed so loud
Here we are in perfect harmony
I can’t tell you how important you are to me

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.


And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.


I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Hopeless romantic

Don’t share your life with someone
Who won’t be there.
Don’t give your heart to someone
Who doesn’t care.
If you agree til death do you part,
Look at him like he’s a work of art.
Don’t worry about what you aren’t meant to change.
Accept people for who they are
Even if they’re a little strange.
Be the one to take their hand
When they feel alone.
Be the one to soften
A heart made of stone.
Dreams, desires and goals,
They’re what we live for.
Two halves make a whole
When you can call them yours.
When you look at them,
And feel nothing but pride.
Knowing they’re the one
That makes you feel alive.

Lost

Alone in the dark,
feeling I’ve lost my spark
How could I be so dumb?
I want to let go,
just go numb.
Yet I hold on,
while every bit of me is gone.
Trapped in cyclical pain.
Not being able to escape my own brain.
Wanting to rid of the ache,
but I just continue to break.
I don’t want to be here,
I’m begging to disappear.
I try so hard,
but I never get very far.
Where do I go from here?
How does one live a life of fear?
I fear rising,
for the fall is agonizing.
I fear waking,
for every time I feel myself breaking.
I fear living,
for life is so unforgiving.
Life has broken me.
I don’t think I’ll ever be happy.
Trapped to live alone,
wandering the twilight zone.
Damned to be lost.

Three sisters


The eldest sister sweet and kind
a nicer child you would not find
she was so clever, studied books,
but middle one had all the looks.
This middle child brought many smiles
she had such charm and could beguile.
The youngest one so wild and free
and often naughty, everyone could agree.
But I could ride and put the shot
and these were things that they could not,
so there we were, we sisters three
each to our own quite happily.
Though sometimes when we played our games
we yelled and called each other names,
things might turn nasty and we’d fight
we’d push and shove and scratch and bite.
But now we’re old we’re all great friends
there for each other till life ends,
if there are times when things are tough
we rally round with help and love.

Ardent heart

See I may write a thousand rhymes
With my lyrical tranquil art,
And weave thy name in threads of time—
To melt thy ardent heart.
To please thy tender heart my dear,
I may sing a thousand songs—
That soothe for aye each trembling tear,
And neither the words nor lyrical charms—
In the waves of rhythmic sea,
Can ever express the love that comes
From me and goes to thee.
For it seems that I have loved to thee
In a countless modes and ways,
And we love with a love greater than we—
Which is beyond the nights and days.
Of this seraphic baffling Sphere,
A love so young, a love so true—
After thousand mystic years.
And it seems that all the potions deep
In the Earth’s eternal sea,
In the magic shores of thee.
For in every star and every place,
And every lyrical line,
I find thy dormant mystic face—
Ere the eyes of mine.
And with every breath and every beat,
Under the endless sky
And we have danced hand in hand—
Amidst a thousand heart,
And promised to straighten every bend,
And never ever to part.
