My Father

Your smile enlightened my life,

With courage, I faced any strife…

Your jokes were genuinely funny,

I felt happy and sunny…

Your hard work and dedication was admirable,

It was indeed commendable….

Your punctuality and self discipline was immaculate,

It inspires me to emulate….

Your helpful and hospitable nature

Motivates me to nurture that nature…

Your focus and aim was the starting point of your success story,

Your diligence , intelligence and perseverance facilitated your career’s glory…

The tea made by you used to be freshening ,

It used to cause an alert awakening!

You showered unconditional  love and affection on me,

I am indeed a fortunate me!

I thank God for blessing me with a benevolent  father,

Your plethora of magnificent memories will help me to go further…

Streams of Dreams

I fear to sleep because I fear to dream…

I like flowing in the sparkling stream

Of dreams….

But I fear breaking of dreams…

I fear the pain and sorrow…

I fear lack of gain and  ‘ sad ‘ tomorrow…..

All of a sudden, I see a ray of light,

I see it’s marvellous might…

A tiny light can vanquish darkness…

The way goodness and godliness

Can defeat the bad and the evil…

Hard work, commitment , capabilities, persistence and definitely  ‘luck ‘

Can create success and happiness…

Without feeling ‘stuck’…

Now, I don’t fear to sleep,

Now, I don’t fear to dream…

A Nagging Guilt

I feel a guilt,


The alarm clock loyally sounds itself loudly,


I snooze it coldly and lazily….

I feel a guilt,


I watch a movie based on a book,

Instead of

Reading that book…..

I feel a guilt,


I plan to do ‘ n ‘ number of tasks,


I end up doing ‘ n-n’ number of tasks!

I feel a guilt,


I make the same mistake again…


I feel a lot of pain….

I feel a guilt ,


I forget a person’s name repeatedly,


I have to address that person urgently…..

The guilty mind

Is heavy with baggage,

It fails to be sage….

It would be great to

Remove all the unwanted luggage


The same mind would be on the right guage……









A Nagging Guilt

Sometimes, sometimes….

Sometimes, sometimes,

Life is full of noise,

The same life offers poise…

Sometimes, sometimes,

We love the party,

Someone plays dirty….

Sometimes, sometimes,

Life is a beautiful song,

Sorrow is very long….

Sometimes, sometimes,

Others feel ,we are wasting our time,

We are busy enjoying the wind chimes!

Sometimes, sometimes,

We are very happy,

We are very snappy….

Sometimes, sometimes,

We set a delicious curd,

We are dearly absurd!

Sometimes, sometimes,

We forget the dimes,

We love the limes….

Sometimes, sometimes…

Sometimes, sometimes!






Sometimes, sometimes….

The Adorable but Often Ignored ‘Above’

I am above you,

I can see you ..

You can see me,

But you often ignore me..

I am very beautiful,

Sorry for sounding boastful…

I am magnanimous,

I am famous…

I am a star studded world,

I am a clouded word…

I am so many varied blues,

Even , I don’t have clues…

I reflect beautifully in colourless water,

I rejoice the flying birds’ flap and flutter….

I am the adorable but often ignored ‘ Above ‘,

I am the freedom for birds like ‘Dove’….

I am the generous SKY,

I make many a dreams FLY….
