​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.

So many words are there to say,
Yet they fail to express how I feel for you night and day,
Tell me how I express those feelings to you,
I wonder if you’ve even got a clue,

I have moved around the world,
Never found someone like you girl,
An eye contact with you just makes my day,
When you smile, I seem to lose my way,

So many words I want to say,
Something keeps me from you to say,
Tell me how I get outta this fear,
Save me from this pain to bear,

I see you pass by me everyday,
One half of heart wants to hide, other half wants to say,
I try hard to ask you out,
Sometimes in fear, sometimes in doubt,

I blink more often when I talk to you,
Does this gesture give you some clue?
Every night I keep looking at the sky in blue,
Has this something to do with those feelings for you?

Every encounter with you blossoms my lonely heart,
Rains of happiness are there in every part,
Tell me how I express my feelings to you,
I wonder if you’ve even got a clue.

Ek khwaab dekha hai maine kabhi,
Jahan tum bhi hogi aur baarish bhi,
Baarish ki boondon mein hum sang bheeg rahe honge,
Unn namkeen hawaon ki mehek ko mehsus kar rahe honge,

Tanha chaand ki roshni mein safed ret ki chamak hogi,
Samundar ki lahrein phir bhi ek azeeb si khamoshi hogi,
Ek khushnuma ehsaas aur ek andheri raat,
Aur taaron ki timtimahat tale bas hamara sath,

Kuch ankahee baatein hongi,
Hontho pe muskurahat hogi,
Aankhon me shararat hogi,
Mann me sugbugaahat hogi,

Aasman ko dekh hum gunguna rahe honge,
Uss anmol pal ko taare bhi nihaar rahe honge,
Raat ki chaandni mein hum khoye honge,
EK dusre ki baahon mein soye honge,

Karke saari bandhano ko darkinaar,
Lahraate samunder ke kinare hoga apna aashiyaan,
Mohabbat hogi beshumaar,
Jo ho na sakega lafzon me bayaan,

Bas intezaar hai tumhara tasveer se nikalne ka,
Tumse do meethi baatein karne ka,
Ek nayi zindagi jeene ka,
Ek naya rasta lene ka.

English translation
I have a dream sometime,
In which you are there, so is rain,
Drenching we are together in those raindrops,
Feeling those salty smell of breeze,

There is glitter of white sand in the light of lonely moon,
There is weird sereneness in spite of waves of ocean,
A feeling of happiness and a dark night,
And our togetherness under twinkling stars,

Some words unsaid,
Blooming smile on lips,
Naughtiness in eyes,
A little hesitation in mind,

Beneath the sky, there are us, lullabying,
That precious moment being stared by stars,
We are there, lost in moonlight,
Resting in each other’s arms,

Leaving aside all bonds,
Besides rippling oceans, there is our home,
Unconditional love beyond imagination,
Which can’t be described merely in words,

All I am waiting is for you to jump out of the picture,
To have a word with you,
To live a new life with you,
To take a new path with you.

Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun,
Har dua mein tumhe hi bas pucha karun,
Inn aahton mein tumhe dhundhta firun,

Teri parchhaiyon ka main pichha karun,
Teri har zikr mein main fikr karun,
Tu anzaan hai agar mere iss pyaar se,
Aa tujhko apni chahat se rubaru karun,

Ab toh aadat hai iss kadar tere sath ki,
Tere bin yeh zindagi hai bina saans ki,
Umeed ki sau kiranein hain palkon pe mere,
Jehn mein chhapi hai dastan ishq ki tere,

Main hun shayar tera, tu meri shayari,
Tu keh de toh likh dun main ik diary,
Saare panno pe honge tere ishq ki talab,
Mujhe zamane ki parwaah nahi hai ab,

Tu mera armaan hai, tu mera aasman,
Teri jaisi haseen iss jahan mein kahan,
Main toh zinda hun tere liye hi sanam,
Tu jo sath ho, mushkilein ho jayein kam,

Shab se subah tak tumhe socha karun,
So bhi jaun phir bhi tumhe dekha karun,
Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun,
Raat din tere khyalon mein duba rahun,
Ik pal bhi tumhe na main bhula karun.
