I see your broken heart,
Shattered into millions part,
You seem deep in pain,
Your eyes look drenched in rain,

I feel so sorry for you,
How can someone leave a girl like you?
Let me know if I can help lessen your grief,
Anything that can be done for some relief,

Baby there is nothing left behind,
You need to move on, Why is he still in your mind?
There is much more in this world,
Someone better is waiting for you girl,

Don’t make your life boring,
A beautiful world outside is worth exploring,
Stay strong and be patient,
I know sadness has left in your heart a dent,
For nothing in this world does forever stay,
Even the strongest of the perfume fades away,

You have to let him go,
You will get someone better, you never know,
For a sweet girl like you,
You deserve someone who make you feel like woo,

You don’t need to feel alone,
Please don’t cry, don’t let him you down,
Baby you know you’re worth much more,
There will be someone worth waiting for,

Sweet are the fruits of adversity,
Hold faith in the almighty,
You will get your prince Charming,
You will dance again on the rhythm of love chimes with your king.

13,000 feet – That one minute of your life when you forget to breathe.

They said:”It’s now or never”. I said,”Let’s do it”.

Kabhi kabhi alfaaz kam pad jate hain tajurba byan karne mein,
Aisa hi kuch ehsas sa tha,
Ik khamoshi si thi maano hawa mein tairti,
Jo kah rahi thi, haule haule, fusfusate hue,
Parindon ki tarah hawa mein aazad rahna sikho,
Mehsoos karo apne dil ki dhadkanon ko,
Ud chalo inn madhosh si hawaon mein kahin,
Jee lo zindagi ke iss pal ko,
Kuch yun sammohit kar gaya tha woh lamha,
Piche rah gaye zindagi ke saare haseen pal,
Kash woh waqt ko wahin thaam pata,
Kash woh waqt wahi tham jata,
Mehsoos hua zindagi ki bediyon se aazad hokar kaisa lagta hai,
Gote lagate hawa ko cheerte cheel ki tarah,
Woh dubte suraj ki surkh lahu si khoobsurti,
Woh neela khula aasman aur main, sirf main,
Na tanhaiyaan, na kuch khone ki fikar,
Kaise kuch pal mein itni saari yaadein yun sama jati hain,
Ki alfaaz kam pad jate hain tajurba byan karne mein.

You get to live life once. But if you do it right, once is enough

Your name seems to be carved on the heart since ages,
You definitely have captivated every bit of it in cages,
It is all yours forever,
Oh dear, don’t leave me ever,

I write your name sometimes on the shore,
And see it vanishing in the sand pure,
I write your name sometimes in my diary,
In the hope, someday someone would know our chemistry,
I am left alone, it’s hard to believe,
Void of love, how is it like to live?
I sometimes see you, one moment you are beside me,
The next moment you are gone in a blink, I don’t see,

With burning desires in my eyes, I searched for you like shadows,
From crowded streets to chilling snows,
No nook and corner is left untouched,
Your memories are haunting me, I am cursed,
All I see is your face on every mirror,
This distance from you is very hard to bear,
People say I look infectioned and tired,
For they don’t know the pain inside wired,

You showed me what love is, I never knew,
You showed me that dreams can come true,
Show me again that secret ingredient of happiness,
I am exhausted of all this chase,

I keep asking, where is my winsome happening girl?
It’s hard to live without her in this lonely world,
They say everything happens for a reason,
I wonder if this is why I have been writing this whole season?

Tumse hai mil kar aise,
Lagta hai mujhko jaise,
Dil ko mil gaya hai,
Ik naya rasta,

Chhapi hai tasveer teri,
Bheege inn palkon pe meri,
Tujhme paata main khud ko,
Tu mera jahan,

Tu jo ayi zindagi mein meri,
Neendein ud gai hain saari,
Kabhi na ho fansle,
Tere mere darmiyan,

Hain baaton mein teri,
Jadoo ki jhappi aisi,
Tu ho gai hai meri,
Jeene ki wazah,

Tere sang beete ghante aise,
Lagta hai lamhe jaise,
Yun hi kat jaye waise,
Yeh zindagi,

Falak tak jaake meri,
Aawazein kuch aise pahuchi,
Rab ne de di hai,
Saari khushiyan,

Tu jab na ho toh aise,
Lagta hai mujhko jaise,
Ek shayar ho gaya hai,
Bin shayari,

Tu hi hai manjil meri,
Tu iss sahil ki kashti,
Teri saari mushkilein meri,
Tere bin zindagi adhuri,

Tu hai sanson mein meri,
Meri har dhadkan hai teri,
Meri namaazon mein hai,
Tera chehra,

Tere bin har lamha aise,
Lagta hai sadiyon jaise,
Main hun chaand tera,
Tu mera aasman,

Hai rab se ibadat meri,
Tu har janam mein ho jaye meri,
Har pal hum sath rahe aise,
Jaise ek shayar aur uski shayari.

Sometimes I stay awake all night,
Keeping my worries out of sight,
Wondering what I learnt all these years,
Hard work, smile and to overcome my fears,

I have learnt to live from the splendid fireflies,
Although little, their soft glow show importance in starless skies,

The flowers in blue have whispered me the secret art,
To smile and spread fragrance even if someone tears you apart,

I have learnt the value of selfishness from the sun,
To provide us heat and nutrients, it burns itself from dusk to dawn,

I have witnessed the power of union from the stars,
Alone you make no difference, but together you can’t be surpassed,

Honeybees have buzzed, only your work others can steal,
So work worry free, will lie with you your talent and skill,

Spiders have enlightened me the key to success, hard work, diligence and perseverance,
Don’t be afraid of the failures, keep trying and result would be magnificent,

God has surely created butterflies to teach us a lesson,
Outer apperance can be deceiving, don’t be too quick to judge, work is in progress, it’s yet not done,
To rise above any situation or struggle, lies within you that power,
Use it to transform into the strongest, brightest version of you ever,

Keep going and going, no matter how obstacled the path is, said the gushing river,
And face every difficulty with equal energy without any shiver,

Stand by and endure the pressure, you will shine at last,
Sparkled the precious diamond, I too was once a stone in the past,

Nature is the best teacher of all,
But only if you are willing to learn from all your heart and soul.

A chapter of my life, which finally closed.
I close my eyes, I see a face,
Time has passed at a splendid pace,
It was a scorching sunny day,
With rains of happiness on the way,
A day to remember, a day to dare,
I was to promise a whole life to care,
A red rose in hand and hundred evenings of hope,
Balloons of happiness and dreams unfold,
They call it the day of romance,
Day of luck, or the day to take a chance,

And then, there she was, in ruby red attire,
Stunning, soignèe and glowing in necklace blue sapphire,
Right beside me, standing,
In a place solumn and serene,
Her raven hair tightened with a pinky velvet ribbon,
She never looked so beautiful, needless to mention,
Memories started rolling, like a flashback soon,
How I waited for hours all the way,
And her one glimpse would make my day,
Her rosy lips, her charming face,
Her eyes with an ocean depth,
Her infectious smile,
Those cute dimples little,
Raven tress, nose pointing like knife,
As if the statue of Aphrodite came to life,

With all the love I had for her,
I walked towards her,
My heart was beating like drums,
My eyes were swinging under blanket of dreams,
With some dare in eyes,
And love in heart king size,
I bent down on one knee,
Took her hand in my hand,
Oh my dear, will you be mine?
I will stand by your side till the last sunshine,
My love for you will never fade,
Be it mountains of happiness or sorrows’ shade,
Noone would love me like you do,
That’s why I wanna live forever with you,
No matter how many fights between us would happen,
We will always make it right, our world won’t be shaken,
You would always find me there,
In every moment of joy and each moment of despair,
You make me love you so easy,
It has become part of me rather than a necessity,
Being with you rejuvenate me in such a way,
Morning has brought hope in its every ray,
A little tiny world of ours, I aspire,
You are someone to me, for whom I respire,
This is a little tough decision, I know,
For we can’t predict everything now,
I promise, you would never find yourself alone,
Just say you love me, I asked in calm tone,

And then to my surprise,
I saw tears rolling out her eyes,
She was holding a heart,
Which was not mine,
She said, with a sigh,
We do not make a good pair, you and I,
All lyrics of songs, we kept on listening were unspoken,
Ah! All in vain, the heart was broken,
I heard a small crack somewhere,
I wonder if anyone would even care,
Collapsed and sunken were my eyes,
Silent and tearless were my cries,
I was left alone with shattered feelings,
For heart was punctured with iron drillings,
As moon shies from the sun,
I shared my love with noone,
Then I realized, even moon is alone,
Did it ever love someone?

I walked under the woods in mist,
In a dusk of monsoon, with eyes twist,
A non ending passage in forest,
Tiny drops of rain water slipped from the leaves in haste,
Through the grass, wind whispered,
Flowers in the golden, too madly danced,
Carpet of greenery resembled the ample cushion,
Snow white waterfall flowing as molten sapphire screamed for my attention,
Gliding over the rocks, splashing its tears,
Birds chirped and sung in my peaceful ears,
Breeze so soft and gentle as mom’s kissed,
Rustling branches, too not to be missed,
Sunlight casting pink golden hue,
Over the bridge of deep shimmering lake blue,
Desperately I looked through the trees straight,
The scenery was so majestic designed great,
A pleasant soothing gift to eyes,
Spell-bound silence and void of noise,
My senses lulled by the ravishing perfumes,
As I crossed the shades of flower blooms,
I wish my soul in the forest forever stays,
Far from deceives and free of lies,
I took the road less travelled,
All I wish is to grow old in this insouciant world.

Aur ek khamosh lamha sab kuch keh gaya,
Jo baatein itne saalon mein alfaazon se byan na ho saka,
Woh pedon ke niche hathon mein hath chalna,
Woh kaliyon ka muskurana, woh gulabon ki khushboo,
Woh sung gaaye geeton ki yaadein,
Woh subah ka ruthna aur shaam hone tak manana,
Ek dusre ki nigahon mein yun taktaki lagaye rahna,
Yun intezaar mein aankhein bichhaye rahna,
Jab ek pal ki bhi der mein sadiyan nikal jati thi,
Woh har pal mein ek nayi zindagi jeena,
Phir kuch yun badal gaya sab kuch,
Jaise mausam ne li ho ek nayi angadai,
Band ho gaye yun sanchar ke saare sadhan,
Na hansna hasana, na ruthna manana,
Grahan lag gaya ho maano chand mein,
Aur ek din anayas hi hum mil pade,
Unhi pedon ke bich,
Wahi muskurati kaliyan, wahi gulabon ki khushboo,
Badla tha toh bas yeh,
Ki uske hathon mein thi chudiyon ki chamak,
Aur aankhon mein neelam se bahte aansoo,
Lafzon mein kuch byan na ho saka,
Aur ek khamosh lamha sab kuch keh gaya.

It’s been quite long when I penned down something. Here it goes, something that has been carved straight from the heart, something that came from a real life experience.

I sit, I look back,
Lost in the lanes of memory track,
Drowning in the waves of reminiscences chain,
A trauma flashes, like lightning does, before heavy rain,
And I see everything going black,
What happened to be spectacular and dazzling,
Suddenly transformed into cloudy, moonless sky darkening,
Nothing does make sense out of that shade,
I still keep looking with eyes wide,
A ray of hope, that might change something,
And I would again be the younger being,
Rightly they say, one has to pay for one wrong done,
Or was it one right that went mistakenly wrong?

I sit, I look back,
Delving into the threads of memory strangling,
I realize each moment is beautiful and a blessing,
That anything can happen in a trice,
And life turns upside down without asking any price,
All beautiful trails changed in a single stroke,
Leaving traumatised, emotionally and mentally broke,

I sit, I fantasize drowning in a reverie,
Looking myself in the mirror of Erised,
I glance my heart’s truest desires carved,
Is it a coincidence mere,
Or really the deepest desire,
Reflection it shows, is nothing special,
All it appears is a mirror typical,
For all I wish is to be the same old me,
Exuberant, cheerful and carefree.

Some say, you understand importance of something only after you loose it. Truth is, you always knew the importance, you just never imagined losing it ever.

A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one.
