Yaadein!

यादें बन गयी है दुश्मन 
ले जाती है हमें उस मोड़ पर 
जहाँ दिल जाना ही नहीं चाहता 
याद आते है वह गुज़रे हुए दिन 

  जब तुम, तुम न थे और हम, हम नहीं
 बस एक अनजान चेहरा जिसकी हमें पहचान न थी!

 याद आता है वो लम्हा 
 जब नज़रें मिली थी, मन में बेचैनी थी
 और दिल में एक आवाज़ उठी 
 कहीं तुम वही तो नहीं ?

 याद आते है वो पल
वो पहली मुस्कराहट 
वो बातें वो मुलाकातें 
याद आते है वो दिन
 वो वादे और वो ईरादे

 ये यादें क्यूँ आती है
  हमें हर पल यूँ तडपाती है
  वक़्त गुज़र गया है पर बदला  कुछ नहीं
 जैसा कल था वैसा आज भी, सच है यही

 तुम, तुम नहीं हो और हम हम नहीं
 बस एक अनजान चेहरा जिसकी हमें पहचान नहीं !

Looking Beyond !

Look beyond the horizon, there's much to see.
Smell the fragrance of the earth, mystic it's bound to be !

Listen to the music and feel the love in the air.
Dance to the beats of joy, let loose all care !

Look beyond the horizon , there's much to feel........

Give up on the pretense , think beyond existence
It's a wonderful life, if you know how to live !

Look beyond the horizon, there's much to find..........

Break the shackles of hate, the clock of eternity 'll not wait.
Experience the joy of giving, add some meaning to your living !

Look beyond the horizon ,there's much more to life..........

IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT----------

While the world around is sound asleep
my aching heart keeps me awake;
bringing together the joyful memories
that are now edged with pain!

I try to shut out the memories
but they return time and again.
I try to console my heart
but in vain----

I drift back in to the past
which now seems like a lost dream;
Tears start rolling down easily
uncontrollable they seem!

In the stillness of the night
I call out to you.
"Where are you my friend?
Don't you hear my cries?"
You may have forgotten everything
but I treasure the moments we spent together;
when my pain was yours,
and your's-mine.

Two hearts but one feeling
two minds but the same thought!
For hours I would chatter
but you never once seemed bored ,
Up to silly pranks all the time
but you never did mind.

I opened my heart to you-----
A friend , I could trust with my life !
In the stillness of the night----
while my eyes are heavy with tears,
while my heart aches in misery,
while my mind battles with frustration;
I long to see you my friend ,
atleast once before I face my end !
The candle of my life is burning away .
That it may last till I see you ,is all that I pray
For the right moment I know ,you await ;
by then it may be too late !

In the stillness of the night----
I long to hear your voice ,
whether I'll set my eyes on you ,
I'll let destiny decide .
until then I am forced
to listen to my own cries ----
In the stillness of the night !

NEVER MIND DEAR HEART ! NEVER MIND.

The world, to live in , may seem like a gloomy place
with absolutely nothing worthy of praise;
None has a minute to spare
or even a kind word of care.
But never mind dear heart, never mind
for, solace thou shall soon find !
The world is filled with people , selfish & mean;
living with them , a task , tougher than has ever been.
There's never a helping hand here
and no shoulder to lean.
But never mind dear heart, never mind
for , a friend thou shall soon find !!
This world may seem like a heavy burden;
also a cause for many a heart to harden.
There's neither peace here nor a trace of joy,
filled with only sorrow , sin , & despair.
But never mind dear heart , never mind
for , comfort ,thou shall soon find !!!
But dear heart the more I see of this world
disillusioned ; I begin to follow------
This life is a big facade and
all the reassurances , simply hollow !!!!

MY SEARCH IS ON--------------

Who am I ?
What am I doing here ?
What is this strange place ?
Why am I here ?
Will I get my answers ?
My search is on-----------
Why am I confused ?
Or am I ?
What is this frustration for ?
Is there an outlet , a vent ?
Who am I putting these queries to ?
My search is on------------
What is "happiness " ?
The antonym for sorrow ?
Why is anyone unhappy ?
Because there is hatred ?
Why should there be hatred ?
My search is on---------------
Why does my mind experience a turmoil ?
Does it happen to all ?
Why is there a battle of emotions ?
Is this natural ?
Why is there an ache in my heart ?
My search is on ----------------
Why is each one of us living in pain ?
Because there’s no trust ?
What is trust after all ?
The belief in the Omnipotent ?
Who is the Omnipotent ?
My search is on ----------------

"THE LITTLE ONE "

MY BIRTH-----A BAD OMEN !
How strange this world seems,
Oh Lord ! Where have i come ?
A nightmare ? Is this the end of my dreams ?
This place void of angels, simply awesome !
MY GROWTH-----A MISERY !
Dear God , how secure and jofful ,
content i was in my mother's womb ;
from the moment i entered this world , awful ,
i have been living in my own tomb !
MY PEOPLE-----ARE THEY MY OWN ?
In this strange place , strange creatures i see.
stranger still their ways ; i doubt if they 'll accept me.
Their feelings dead ; they haven't ever known glee.
Mercy God ,from this dreadful hell , I wish to flee !
MY LIFE------A LIVING HELL
Safe & protected i was , an unopened bud;
the lotus amidst murk yet sans mud.
Piercing & tearing me are the cruel spines;
for comfort & for love my heart pines !
MY BOSOM PAL-----MY LONELINESS
In this strange world , I find no place
that can offer me peace,happiness & solace .
I see distress & grief & am simply aghast,
wishing that my wonderful sanctuary weren't lost !
MY FEELINGS-----STILL ALIVE ?
Left behind is nothing but a pall of gloom ,
my life- the flower that was yet to bloom.
As a little bud , I was plucked & my petals shred ,
Even before I could learn to live , I was dead !

LIFE------A JOURNEY !

Life is an upward journey ,
has been yesterday & so is today .
Still upward as the days go by
and years pass away !

Still upward as of now
with obstacles that 'll never bow .
Aspiring to reach that height ,
embracing name , fame & delight !

Life is an endless journey
through disappointments .
Through happiness & through sorrow
facing trials along the roads narrow !

Life is a journey through struggles & challenges ,
either one fails to accept them or simply faces them .
Life is also a journey through hope & desire
raging in one's heart like fire !

Life is but the beginning of death ,
anguish , pain , agony & frustration .
Moving closer & still closer
towards destruction !

Life is a journey through dreams
woven patiently through the years .
which may for the blessed few
sometimes prove to be really true !

Life is to obtain salvation
with belief , trust & devotion .
Life is a dark cloud with a silver lining ;
when the clouds disappear , the sun's still shining !

Life is a purposeful journey
towards a locked door ;
our entrance through which depends
on our deeds & so also destiny !

Life is an upward journey
and 'll always be ;
which 'll never prove futile ,
if one can only spare a smile !

MY THOUGHTS-HOPELESS AND VAIN


It began as a dark and cloudy day ,
hither & tither my thoughts wandered away .
Any time now its gonna rain;
the dull weather 's adding to my thoughts ,
hopeless and vain---------

The dark night's approaching slowly ,
and here i am sitting in my room;
the twinkling stars in my life have vanished ,
in their place i find ,depression & gloom.

In the sleepy nights , i often have a vision.
Wonder if its a farce or truly a premonition .
The signals are positive , however fuzzy & unclear ,
while a voice keeps repeating---"end's near "

Should i believe it or should i not ?
Is the controversy in my mind .
But as the morning sun shines brightly ,
i begin my daily chores , leaving my nightmares behind .

The dark night 'll soon be back
and history 'll repeat itself again.
Along with the darkness ,eerie and black ;
will return my thoughts & fears------
hopeless and vain .

Sometimes my thoughts do mislead .
The past is past ; dead and buried ,
while the present's today , full of life ,
and the future 'll be fine ,if one can strive .

Frankly this is easier said than believed .
From the cluthes of depression , i wish to be released .
Each day of my life seems to me,
as one ghastly nightmare ;
with each passing moment ,
about the hopelessness of it , i am made aware

As i pen down each line ,
i wish to relive all the happy moments of mine ;
Sans care , those good old days ,
and for happiness & peace , my heart does pine.

As goes the age old saying ,
"Make hay while the sun's still shining" ,
while the time's gay , i just keep smiling .
It wont be long before they return again ;
My thoughts-------------- hopeless & vain .

THE FLOWER THAT BELIEVED----------

The wind blew hither and tither
beating everything in its way.
But the flower kept standing,
firm in its belief!

The storm came and went
lashing out at everything.
But the flower withstood it all,
firm in its belief!

The scorching sun burned everything
it could lay its hands on.
But the flower persisted still,
firm in its belief!

A breeze of love followed
spreading cheer and love amongst all.
The flower -not used to gentleness,
confused;let loose its hold---

The wind ,the storm and the sun took their toll
caught anawares;the flower was torn apart.
When the storm died and calm reigned again,
wounded and dying , lay the flower;

totally emptied of its life,
almost dead but not quite-----
AS YET FIRM IN ITS BELIEF!!

DEPRESSION

Today , i feel simply depressed,
with great difficulty , my tears i 've supressed .
Some times my strength does break
and i begin to wonder if my life were a mistake !

My eyes are filled with unshed tears ,
pondering over wounded feelings that pierce .
The sleepless nights have started
while peace from my life has departed !

There are times when i feel terribily insecure
some thing for which i can never find the cure .
Life around me seems like an uncongenial sphere ;
how i long to have a companion or someone near !

Gone with wind is my interest & concentration ,
buried very deep is my lost aim & ambition .
Distant & far away seem people , even my own ;
in this dark & mysterious world , i feel terribily alone !

Repeated pleas, i make to God
and every day i say ---"please Lord ,
take me away today ,
to some place peaceful & gay !!

AMNESIA

I don’t remember much about
How I spent my childhood ,
Though I do imagine the
Hand that held mine …

I don’t remember the hand
That wiped my tears ,
Nor do I remember
Ever being held in all the years …

I don’t remember the comfort
Of a mother’s presence
While I fought silent battles
During the dreaded long nights…

I don’t remember the peace
Of lying in your arms
During the most trying periods
When life seemed so very futile …

I don’t remember the joy on your face
Over my little triumphs in life
Or even the hand that reached out
When I stumbled in life…

I don’t remember
A lot of things in life
But simply convince myself
About their reality in my life …

I don’t remember
Looking to you for support
Nor do I remember
The kind words of care …

I may not remember
Many things in life
But I do believe in our special bond
And you shall always be loved !!!!!!!!

SUNSHINE AFTER RAIN

A wonderful day real bright
metamorphosed in to a dull silent night ;
The bright sun that was shining in all its might
crept behind the clouds as if in fright.

There was no more chirping of the birds
which rushed in to their sanctuaries in their plight;
on witnessing in the sky, a thunderous fight .
in the hope of a warm day , after the death of the silent night.

The wind blew & in its rage
snatched from the earth, trees of age.
There was a down pour of rain ,
the clouds exhibitting their might.

The grey pavement soon
disappeared out of sight .
It was a fight of rights & over the day ,
truly the dark night had won.

But there shall be a bright tomorrow again ,
when over the clouds 'll emerge , the triumphant sun !

THE STRANGE DISEASE

Once upon a time , there was a girl ,
slim , tall and fair .
Her long , black hair
resembled the beautiful mane of a mare !
Those enchanting lashes
around her pretty eyes ,
could easily entice men
and turn their voices into sighs !
The dimples in her cheek
played hide and seek ;
making the mightiest of the men
love sick , weary and meek !
The cute nose above her lips
stood with such poise ;
that stealing glances at her
would arrive the princes in disguise !
She was like a princess , very sweet ,
her charming smile , nothing could beat .
Her skin blushed like the rose
while painters craved for her pose !
Her life took a sudden turn ,
with each passing day , she began to yearn
seeking love , happiness and peace ,
sans hunger , sans sleep , her lips forgot to say "cheese" !
Her pretty eyes became sore
and soon her smiles began to cease ;
while people assumed that she
was struck by a strange disease !
Feeling melancholy , she 'd drown
into reveries during the day
and as arrived the silent night ,
she 'd sigh and simply pray !
Finally came the day , when her eyes met
with those that had snatched away her rest ;
wonder if it were tears in her eyes or dew ,
her heart felt hope and dream had come true !
The birds sang , while the flowers began to dance
to the melodic tunes of cheer & romance .
shining brightly was the sun above ,
the diagnosis was -----she was in love !!

WHEN DREAMS BEGIN TO SEEM REAL-------

Just like a new born bud

that rises from the axil of a leaf,

dreams take birth

in the minds of mortals !


Slow & steady the dream takes shape

and a mere wish gets transformed

into a fatal obsession;

when pain seems like pure passion !!


The world through a dreamer's eyes

is no less than any paradise.

When reality is replaced by the dream;

A mirage in the desert, life is one

facade !!!



When dreams begin to seem real

and destiny is mocked at;

its nothing but the beginning--

the beginning of the end !!!!


Therefore ,a dreamer's advice

to all the dreamers alike;

"DARE TO DREAM & HOPE FOR ITS REALITY

BUT NEVER IN REALITY, LIVE IN

YOUR DREAM ." !!!!!


For, when dreams begin to seem real

and reality is ignored------

sorrow reigns,tragedy strikes

and the end is definite.!!!!!!
