The first few times you do somebody a favour,
You are being sweet,
Soon you'l be misused and called a fool,
If you let it consistently repeat.
Being surrounded by people ready to clasp you down,
It is difficult to overlook faces carrying a frown.
They feel power being in a huge group,
Their each move is a step towards completing the loop.
Gradually forming alliance and outrageous opposition within,
Diminishing their chances of a clear win.
Thats when they stand all alone, weaker than ever,
The very same person who had thought she was clever.
Don't worry if you were the one being targeted,
Now its time when they will regret it.
It does pay off, your positive attitude and good deeds,
The forces around you combine, when one needs.
Teaching you that nobody is strong until you think they are,
So stand for yourself, righteously showing...
A father is a blessing in disguise,
He gradually unfolds, leaving you surprised.
His internal love and care is constant,
But the way he portrays it in a situation is always different.
He is laden with a lot of duties throughout,
He pampers, but to control you he sometimes needs to shout.
His contribution to your life does not distinctively show,
You tend to understand his role slowly, as you grow.
He provides you more comforts than he can afford,
He helps you rise above him, no matter how high or low you scored.
He is usually the most under rated person in your life,
You connect to him through your mother, his wife.
Once you are in his shoes, he feels like the ace of spade in a deck,
Instant plans are hectic yet exciting,
Especially when your husband is the pilot flying.
While you sit back and are lazily resting,
He is under constant testing.
Just a day to explore the place,
Loving the smile on each others face.
Walking through the entire city,
Capturing shots mesmerising and pretty.
Doing crazy stuff all the way through,
Be it the cart cycle, something fairly new.
Lagging behind all the time, thats me,
Luring me into something was his key.
The little mermaid and the beautiful sea,
Copenhagen was beautiful, as it could be.
I have the zeal but lag strength,
I have a dream but lag confidence.
I have a goal but fail to aim,
I have the ability but fail to claim.
Having a huge house but nobody to invite,
Having vast knowledge but nothing to recite.
Having a million dollars but no time to spend,
Having ample commodities but not a single friend.
Its not the material things that lead to enormous success,
It is a capacious heart that can give eternal happiness..
A weekend before easter,
With my dear mum and my brother.
Packing our stuff, trying not to forget,
And rushing to reach here before sunset.
Enjoying the scenery on our way,
Reached satebu, all set to sway.
Put on our duck feet to distribute weight,
Struggling hard to make way keeping them straight.
Initially falling every here and there,
Getting stuck and then getting up with care.
The energy utilised made us breathless,
A glimpse of the hytta suddenly vanished our stress.
Came in, to such a warm and beautiful place,
Words are less for its praise.
Used the sleigh to get our goodies,
Found all the switches and other amenities.
Settled down around the fireplace,
Its warmth was like a loving e...
Two years feel just like yesterday,
Together we have managed a long way.
Of course with a few ups and downs,
Mostly smiles but sometimes frowns.
Calmly understanding one another,
Communicating well, while moving further.
Talking about our wishes and desires,
Being there when the other requires.
Looking at the brighter side of things,
Wholeheartedly accepting what destiny brings.
Cherishing each and every moment,
Complimenting the other with slight adjustment.
Overlooking flaws for the positive traits,
In times of despair the other motivates.
Living each breath at its best,
Satisfactorily happy in our little nest.
HAPPY 2nd ANNIVERSARY LOVE
A friend of mine wrote this for me..
"After reading your poems... thought came to mind..
Here's to you!"
Writing a poem is your natural flair,
Words flow like threaded pearls of wisdom and care.
Your emotions hit the right note
And for that,
u have every reason to gloat.
Komal my precious, you have a promising future,
You sure have a knack for poetry along with architecture.
I say build your poem collection to print for posterity,
As soon you will reach the status of a celebrity.
When I look in the mirror,
I see no signs of quiver.
Eyes filled with aspirations,
A smile devoid of frustrations.
Chin brushed up high,
A face confident yet shy.
Nose holding its attitude,
A conscience that can not be bruised.
Forehead oozing resilience,
Hair entangled in brilliance.
Leaving my cocoon where I lay swirled,
All set to face the outside world.
The vastness of the ocean
Describes the depth of your love.
Roses are red
Violets are blue,
Been 29 years in love
Yet feels so new.
Shared our moments
Of happiness and sorrow,
Learnt from the other
To be kind and thorough.
Walked those miles
Hand in hand,
Disagreed a lot
Yet close we stand.
It is the best gesture to change a persons mood,
It's magic can work better than the tastiest food.
When close, each others warmth we can feel,
It can neither be purchased, nor can we steal.
To get a quick boost, it is the best deal,
Just a thought of it can help our wounds heal.
I wish that at this moment,around you, my arms could wrap,
Being able to do it, like a baby I would jump and clap.
If it was an entity, I would send it in an extra large jug,
But for now, just open your arms wide and accept my virtual hug.
We will love each other forever,
Try not to hurt the other.
We will always be each others best friend,
On whom the other can undoubtedly depend.
For each other we will always care,
Together we will make decisions fair and square.
We will try to understand each others silence,
And handle our mood swings with lots of patience.
We will never let our love grow up,
Enjoy each day, like a hot coffee cup.
We will always make each other feel special,
Each day, for ourselves, we will set a new example.
We will make each and every moment worthwhile,
And face every situation together, and with a smile.
We will create an environment devoid of hesitation,
Cherish each happy moment with a celebration.
A small one can be carried everywhere,
With affection, at you it will stare.
Girls love it more than boys,
As boys are more into their technical toys.
It is very soft to touch,
It will remind you that I love you so much.
You can give it a hug, very tight,
This will make your mood perfectly alright.
To do everything you say, I'm always ready,
Till we are apart, you can keep with you this teddy.

Sometimes its sweet,
And very happily we eat.
Sometimes its bitter,
With its wrapper, we litter.
Sometimes its white,
We relish each and every bite.
Sometimes its brown,
Eating it removes every sorrow and frown.
Sometimes its big,
If we eat a melted one, our mouth gets dirty like a pig.
Sometimes its small,
Eating it in excess leads to body structure like a ball.
Sometimes its plain,
When it gets over, we wish that few more of it our pocket would contain.
Sometimes it has crunches,
And if snatched away, the person would only be showered by punches.
Sometimes it is rectangular,
It is the best gift in return for any favour.
Sometimes it is round,
When eating slyly, we remove the wraper perfe...
Relationship is like a rose,
Whom we love, given only to those.
It never grows without thorns,
Similarly, a relationship is both calm and sometimes goes through storms.
It should be nurtured with care and affection,
If something hurts it should be resolved with perfecion.
Varying colors of roses cause attraction,
When given by a loved one it gives a feeling of satisfaction.

Some gifts can fulfil our demand,
Some over our senses, hold a command.
Some just say god bless,
Some take us far away from stress.
Some stay forever,
Some we can get never.
Some give us joy just with their presence,
Some are relished by their essence.
Some cause a feeling of hesitance,
Some around us spread their fragrance.
Since this is coming ur way, its one of the lucky few,
My love, this rose is a small gesture to show how much i love you.
- Gurkomal (23.1.16)
With you, I want to grow old,
Together, prosper manifold.
With you, I want to cuddle,
Together, overcome every struggle.
With you, I want to share my space,
Together, fulfil every craze.
With you, I want to mark the whole globe,
Together, make a classy wardrobe.
With you, I want to behave like a kid,
Together, make our lives flexible and not rigid.
With you, I want to be bold as well as timid,
Together, be sensible and sometimes stupid.
With you, I want to go on an eating spree,
Together, share the feelings of happiness as well as worry.
With you, I want to spend the rest of my life,
Together, can we be husband and wife?
- Gurkomal (23.1.16)
I feel it,
When he gives me a rose,
When he gives a peck on my nose.
When he hugs me tight,
When we aimlessly fight,
When we lovingly cuddle,
When we slyly jump into a puddle.
When he acts funny to cheer up my mood,
When he aimlessly tries to be rude.
When he sings lullabies to make me sleep,
When he piles up candies in a huge heap.
When he serves breakfast in bed,
When he is shy and his cheeks turn red.
When he runs his fingers through my hair,
When he subconsciously begins to stare.
When he dances like crazy,
When we smirk and act very lazy.
When he wakes me up in the morning,
When he teases me for snoring.
When he cares about my well being,
When he tells what i'm doing even without seei...
Some days are worth reliving!
While few others are disastrous,
demanding the power of omitting.
The person who was playing the guitar,
Was somebody special, in her memories far.
He was the one she had dearly loved,
It was her family that ruthlessly judged.
When he looked up and their eyes met,
A sudden rush of emotions left her eyes wet.
She stood there staring at him,
He looked back at her with a grin.
He was singing her favourite song,
His expressions were vague, she felt something was wrong.
Totally perplexed, she began to wonder,
Not before long, it was dark and began to thunder.
While she was ready to move aside and walk,
She overheard a few people talk.
This man has lost all his memory,
The doctors have lost all hope of recovery.
He was once a rich man,
Now he sleeps on the stree...
