Come with me my love,
Together we will reach
where noone has ever gone,
Lost in a world of our own,
Deep love not so ever known,

Hold my hand O’ love
till all the stars burn away,
Leave fragile world behind,
Walk together under the warm sun
in cold winter as we are one,

Come with me my love,
Together we will reach
where noone has ever gone,
My life is in vain,
Without you, my name will be slain,
Because you touched my heart
by your words,
Rendered everything else absurd,

Hold my hand O’ love
till all the stars burn away,
till we have our last breathe,
Because your absence
questions my very existence,

Come with me my love,
Together we will do
what few have ever achieved,
under the warm sun
in cold winter as we are one.

This poem is dedicated to our old nostalgic childhood days. Days when we were innocent and life was simpler. People who grew up in 90s would feel and understand this better because they have lived those golden days. Hope this verse let you relive those moments. Let this verse drown you into those memory chains.

Bachpan ke woh din jab hum khub mastiyan karte the,
Nadan bade the, kisi se hum na darte the,
Kitni saral thi zindagi hamari,
Phir bhi bade khush rahte the,

Jab chhoti ungli chhu lene bhar se dosti ho jaya karti thi,
Nafrat aur jaatiwaad hume samajh na ati thi,
Jab garmi ki chhutiyon mein kulfi ko mann lalchata tha,
Masterji ki ek chhadi se pura homework ho jata tha,
Jab tv par do hi channel ata tha,
Jab tales pin aur shaktiman hame bahut bhata tha,
Jab ghar mein ek hi phone ki ghanti bazti thi,
Jab doston ke sath badi shararat hoti thi,
Jab pokemon go nahi, luka chhupi ki masti thi,
Baarish ke mausam mein kagaz ki kasti thi,
Jab google maps nahi, logon se pata puchha karte the,
Apni soch ko facebook nahi, bas diary mein likh diya karte the,

Woh nani ke ghar jane ko bade utavle hote the,
Pepperment ki toffiyon ke liye hum fut fut ke rote the,
Woh pariyon ki kahaniyan sune bina neend kahan ati thi,
School mein mummy papa ki yaad badi satati thi,
Jab class mein top kar puri duniya jeet lete the,
Papa ke gifts bade anokhe hote the,
Utni khushiyan toh aaj kisi cheez se nahi milti hain,
Ab samajh aya khwaishein toh maa baap ke paison se hi puri hoti hain,

Woh bachpan kitna suhana tha,
Khushiyon ka khazana tha,
Bachpan mein log pucha karte the,
Bade hokar kya banna hai,
Jawab ab samajh aya,
Phir se bachcha banna hai,
Woh bachpan ke din kahan gaye,
Yaaron hum kyun bade ho gaye.

PS: I will add the english translation soon.

Tu bas gai ruh mein iss qadar mere
Har sans pe likha hai naam tera
Tu hi shayari meri
Main hun shayar tera
Tu woh diary meri
Likhta hun jisme main dil ki jubaan

Tu mil gai hai
Mujhko mil gaya hai jahan
Tere jaisi hasin
Main dhundhu kahan

Ae meri bekhudi
Ae meri humnasin
Is aasman mein tum sa
Koi taara nahin

Tere khyalon mein
Doob ke aksar
Gaane likhta
Raat din

Teri mohabbat ka jadoo
Chhaya mujh par
Ho gaya hun
Ek panchhi bin par

Tu bas gai ruh mein iss qadar mere
Har sans pe likha hai naam tera
Ek baar keh de dil se mujhse
Main tera humsafar

Tu bas gai ruh mein iss qadar mere
Har sans pe likha hai naam tera.

​A tale of friendship of a boy and a girl who met on a social media. This verse is dedicated to our 3 years of great friendship. Hope you like it.

My nights used to be lonely and boring,
Neither my days were that exciting,
Coding was my only world,
Then one fine day, my eyes got stuck on a girl,
She looked cute, she looked naughty,
She was a glowing piece of beauty,
I thought hard if I should shoot her a message,
Scared if she would reply or my attempt would be in wreckage,
But she did,
And that changed something in me,

Pause…
You know who I’m talking about, right?
Cool! Let’s resume…

You’re a friend who never made me feel ashamed or embarrased,
You’re a friend who never mocked my stupidity,
You’re a friend who taught me craziness in life is a necessity,
You’re a friend with whom I can talk anything,
You’re a friend who inspired me that there is life beyond career,

I am so glad to find you,
Someone who shares same interest in music,
Someone who has the passion for dance,
Someone to talk crazy in late night
and never say goodbye
until our eyes are heavy
and our fingers can’t stand by,

Talking to you is like unraveling a mystery in dark,
The more we talk, the more about you is revealed as a spark,
Talking to you renders me worry free,
Talking to you, I am the best version of me,

I hope I never killed you with my boring and stupid conversations,
I just want to say,
“You’re awesome”.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

All I can say is:
“Call me when you need a friend,
To be with you until the end,
As the mountains crumble to the sea,
Share your loneliness with me.”

Happy friendship day! Cheers!

I found you, I got my destination,

A strong feeling of an irresistible connection,
My soul has now a purpose to live,
There is nothing more to achieve,

I found you, I got all the happiness,
Finally the end of a frantic chase,
All I wish is to freeze this moment,
To be with you and fix that was hell broken,

I found you, I got the heaven,
Someone to care in a world so shaken,
My world is your arms and yours is mine,
A ray of hope in the morning sunshine,

I found you, I found the world,
In the coal mines, You’re a precious pearl,
My lost soul has now a new home,
In search of someone, It will no more roam.

Music has the power to heal any pain,
In moments of distress it is the road to heaven,

When you feel lost and are void of clues,
Just listen few beats and your worries would flew,

Music can guide you to the path of happiness,
Whatever you are, it teaches you to embrace,

Love, break up, victory, failure,
Music fills color in every atmosphere,

Music reminds you of someone,
Music helps you forget someone,
Music motivates you to achieve your goals,
Music helps you to rock ‘n’ roll,

When you have a long exhausting working day,
Shake your legs in loud music, sadness won’t stay,

When you want a soothing peace of mind,
Beethoven’s symphony is the best and one of a kind,

Music comes in many colors and taste,
A bit of experiment and you know which one suits you the best,
No matter if you’re angry or being rude,
Music is out there for every mood,

Be it a wedding or someone’s demise,
If not selected carefully, music can be a surprise,

When music is combined with the verse,
It has the magic to lift any curse.

​If words are not there to speak for you,
If all the signs in this world don’t give you enough clue,
Let the emotions flow through the window of eyes,
Let the eyes be your verse and depict the story to mesmerize.

​Under the blanket in chilling winter,
I write my poetry although my hands shiver,
Fingers have frozen like a stone,
My heart is still pumping blood in vein,

A memory from the past keeps me awake,
A memory that I try every night to forget,
Once I too had someone to express,
A special one to listen all my interests,
All I have now is my loneliness and my dreams,
I scare to share my thoughts no matter how mature it seems,

Evenings got washed, nights got changed,
Days passed, months did, years they became,
Writing kept me hooked all these years,
A purpose to live despite all the tears,
No drinks, yet I am addicted,
Noone around, yet I am seduced,

Now poetry is my life, poetry is my love,
I ain’t pleased with any other stuff,
I have found a new way to express,
Feelings that would otherwise have been dumped in distress.
At least it will never leave me ever,
I can write my heart out forever.

Deep down in your eyes,
I see there silent cries,
In the loneliness of your soul,
Don’t let your worries upon you crawl,
When you’re afraid of the rain,
You can just call my name,

Because our love is not selfish,
It is pure,
Look into my eyes,
There you will find,
My blooming love for you,

Walk with me into the mist,
To discover what your heart desires at least,
Our fates are entwined, as you see,
Like salt and water are mixed in a sea,

Because our lives are too busy,
And there is time passing by,
Open your heart and unveil what hides inside,
No matter what, I’ll be by your side,

When troubles seem to take a ride,
Close your eyes, you’ll see me fighting at your side,
When darkness makes you insane,
Hold my hand, you’ll be home again,

Because this is what love means to be,
To share ups and downs of the life’s sea,
And my love for you surpasses all,
I can’t ever let you fall,

With time you shall forget the past,
These memories do seldom last,
The only thing that remains
is we stood together in those hard rains.
