Time is moving,
I cannot stop,
As the sand
Slips away from my hand
And I can not hold;
What to do?
What to do?
I  loved you,
But could not help you;
My efforts were not enough;
So I was of no use.
It is good you chose others,
And moved forward with time;
But I could not;
What to do now?
I could not hold the time
And it slipped away;
What to do?
I am now of no use;
What to do?


Why is everything not optimum?
Where is the equilibrium?
Why is the formula impractical?
Where is the solution simple?
Why not be ideal
Where it is real?

Soon or late,
Huffy or happy,
It is all the same.
Or is it?
In the slower lane.

Sing the lullaby
That will make me fall asleep
Before I hear beeps.

Illuminated screen
Hammering wisdom of life
Into fertile minds-
Trying to simplify the strife?

Enjoy scoldings for
Lazying in scattered room;
Enjoy being home.

Dedicated to my dear mother on this mothers’ day.

One day as I was walking quite fast,
Only a few blocks past,
I stopped and looked around.
Just when I concluded nobody could be found,
I realized I was not alone;
With me was the creator of my every bone!
Like then and like always,
On rainy or sunny days,
You have been walking with me all along;
You are the reason I am strong.

One day I thought I had reached a dead end;
I wanted to go back in time and mend.
That time you told me, “Don’t think, don’t stall!
Why don’t you just try to climb this wall?
You will see a new world on the other side.
New opportunities will open their doors wide.”
Like then and like always,
On rainy or sunny days,
You have been picking thorns from my bed;
You are the reason my life is smoothly led.

One day I was too elated;
“What could ever go wrong,” I interrogated.
You too were celebrating my happiness
And praying it may never be less.
But at the same time ensuring that good times don’t avert,
That I don’t eat too much dessert!
Like then and like always,
On rainy or sunny days,
You have been keeping me from getting drowned;
You are the reason I live happily but on ground!

One day, today, I want to say without any platitude
That I am sitting on an earth-full of gratitude!
You do so many sacrifices and don’t remember,
Every day from January to December!
If I can be an iota of goodness that you are,
I’ll be blessed like the night’s brightest star!
Like today and like always,
On rainy or sunny days,
You are and shall be my dearest, my idol!
You are the reason I’ll defeat all waves- figurative or tidal 🙂
