Before I got on the ventilator
I never knew how important it was to breathe.
Before they put me into coma
I never paid attention to being conscious.
Before I lost my taste and smell
I ignored the fragrances of nature and taste of water.
Before all my blood was run through machines
I did not pay heed to the life within.
Before I got a tube in my throat
I never admired my voice, my speech.
Before I had my eyes closed
I never adored the colors and shades of nature.
Before I said good bye to my family
I never said "I love you" enough.
And now it's time to go
Far far away
If only I could get a breath
There is so much left to say.

You will hear me say
Frequently
That I don't care..
While the reality is,
I do.
I care when someone needs my help.
I care when someone feels low.
I care when someone cries.
I care when someone dies.
I care when someone is hopeless.
I care when someone feels helpless.
I care when someone is lonely.
I care when someone is homesick.
I care when someone can't speak up.
I care when someone can't cope.
I care when someone lives in fear.
I care when someone doesn't care.

The alarm rings.
With eyes wide open
I stare at the ceiling
Trying to remember
What day it is
What place it is
Who I am
I scratch my head
And rub my eyes
And crawl out
Of my unkempt bed
A splash of water on my face
Reminds me
It's time to go
The cloud clears
And I remember
Who I am
What I do
And I feel a rush
So much so
I lock the door behind me
As I reach the gate
I remember , I forgot
What I needed the most
To bring me back
To that unkempt bed
When I am done
With the daily chores
My precious
Indispensable
Keys.

In search of me..
Confused, I walk
In the middle of nowhere
Amused, I am
At my own helplessness
Refused, I was
Always the odd one out
Misused, I am
For being kind
Today, I gather
The strength that was lost
And move towards
What I value the most
No maps,
No roads,
No lamps,
No canopy.
Today,
I walk..
In search of me!!

JUST LOVE

My love for you is still going strong..
The wait for you has been too long
Despite the distance nothing seems wrong
I yearn to be with you for a moment
My love for you is still going strong..

The clock keeps ticking and time moves on
My heart keeps beating aloud and alone
It yearns to see you, feel you , touch you
And think about you from dusk to dawn..

When the veil of the night overcomes the day
When there is nothing left to do or say
When I look at the skies and pray
I wish you could just appear and stay..

I find it hard to follow you
I can't reach you whatsoever I do
It is you with whom I will always belong
My love for you is still going strong..

LET'S FALL IN LOVE

It is a sunny, beautiful day.
And you are at your merry best.
You are rushing through your chores
With you heart pounding out of your chest.
And suddenly, you see flashes
Of light brighter than the sun.
Your ears cant take even the sounds
Of leaves, it is time to run.
Run to the bed, and dip in the duvet
You have never been so afraid of light.
Your head starts banging,
Breathless you are, pressing it with all your might.
You struggle to get up,
The gravity is strong.
You hide in the pillow.
The head beats like gong.
You gulp down some pills
In the hope that they will cure.
But you wither in pain
What will work, not sure.
After hours of agony
You fall asleep
Only to be awakened
By the phone...

In a strange world,
I held your hands
And walked past
All sadness
Always smiling
Always surviving
The worst of my fears
When you were there
To pull me out
To pat me
To praise me
To criticise me
To stop me
From vice
To laugh along
To cry along
To celebrate
All my joys and yours
It has been long
And there have been many of you
Coming my way
Then going yours
But
Down the memory lane
You will all shine
Like pearls
Of friendship band
Thank you for being my friend.

Endless laughter
Filled the air
Loud conversations
In our lair
Joyful rides
On motor bikes
Swaying roads
The toughest hikes
We were one
Like no one else
Always together
Powerpuff gals
Gossip bombs
Talking shit
At midnight
Skies, moonlit
Time flew
No one could tell
Crazy and graceful
Blended well
Such was our friendship
Such it is
Far but close
We seldom miss
Remember the smiles
That made us cry
Let's stay awesome
Together till we die..

Dedicated to my best mates..

The smile that washes away
All my tears
And the hugs that wipe out
All my fears
The warmth of your touch
That gives me life
The pride I feel
To call me your wife
All of that and more
That you give everyday
Enriches me, enhances me
Encourages me in every way
Thank you, my love
For just being there
I pray you get wiser
And lovely each year..

Happy birthday

Sometimes, you just feel lost. Amidst all the good and bad things happening around you, amidst the million people that surround you, you still feel lost. Its not a matter of what defines you outwardly, but what defines you inwardly that you seek. You know who you are, you know your capability, you know you can go far, and still you know nothing. It appears to you that nothing is going your way. You feel abandoned and low. You can't seem to focus on anything. You don't see the purpose of anything. You just want time to turn back. You just want to amend all the mistakes you did. You just want to rewind your younger days. You just want things to be another way.

To always look beyond you and me..
Love is not my cup of tea.
To adore someone religiously..
Love is not my cup of tea.
To find together, a destiny
Love is not my cup of tea..
So much to loose, so much to flee
Love is not my cup of tea.
Beyond the limits of fantasy
Love is not my cup of tea..
To worship someone secretly
Love is not my cup of tea
To bear the pain endlessly
No.. love is not my cup of tea..
To live a life of ecstacy
Love is not my cup of tea..
To care forever with sincerity
Love is not my cup of tea..
To forget the world entirely
Love is not my cup of tea..

When you look at me
With that twinkle in your eyes
When you hug me from behind
And take me by surprise
When I say I love you
And you say you love me more
I feel a bliss within me
You, I always adore
With years that pass along
With me in your embrace
There is nothing that I fear
Nothing that I can't face.
Oh Darling! My life, my lover
my husband and my best pal
On the wings of love forever
Let us set sail.

The days that are gone..
The giggles that echoed in
Grandma's house
The pies and sweetmeats
That enthroned the kitchen top
The laughter that came
From nowhere and grew
The treading of miles
In just a flipflop
The wonder that was
My mummy's lap
The perfect place
For an afternoon snap
The joy of holding
My daddy's hand
The fun of playing
In the cousins' band
Those were the days
Of summers that shone
Alive in my memories
The days that are gone..

When all hope is lost
When all doors are closed
When living seems tough
And loneliness overdosed
It only needs a step
Forward and ahead
To find the light of hope
On the path that you tread
When the days are dark
And the nights stare at you
Only courage and perseverance
Will pull you through
It's never the end
Till you believe so
There is always a way
A way to go..

I still remember you
Despite the thousand miles
That stand between us
Despite the million faces
I see every day
Despite the numerous voices
I hear everyday
Despite the years
That have passed by
Despite the love
That has faded away
Despite the stories
That are forgotten
Despite the new beginnings
And the goodbyes
Despite the memories
That have sunk deep
I still remember
Together what we have been through
I still remember you

If I had a boat
I would sail away to an island
In the middle of nowhere
With no one around
Just the ocean and the ground
With the waves hitting the shore
Nothing to look out for
Where winds blow pure and free
Uplifting when they touch me
No sounds other than my breath
No fear of life or death
No worry of night or day
To such a nowhere some day
I want to sailaway...

WHEN I FIRST SAW YOU..
when i first saw you, it was a regular day.
busy with my chores, i was minding my own way.
the sun was shining, the breeze was blowing.
birds were chirping, people were going.
just then, somebody said, there was a new guy in town
his voice unheard, his eyes iberient, his hair was glossy brown
i greeted him wit a formal tone, a hand-shake followed close.
his voice trembled, his words juggled, from the chair, he rose.
there was not much to say or hear, but i stayed there for a while.
and Alas! there it came.. the mesmerizing smile..
the world around just dissappeared, as i was carried away
by his smile, so innocent, like a child's play.
we walked, we talked, we worked, w...

Insomniac
You can call me now
Insomniac
Don't ask me how
Insomniac
My bloodshot eyes
Insomniac
My wisdom dies
Insomniac
I did not see
Insomniac
It was making me
Insomniac
Is what I have been
Insomniac
Since I was a teen
Insomniac
Counting sheep
Insomniac
Will I ever sleep

Love
No words to explain it
No pictures to illustrate it

It's pure
It's felt
It's shared
It's love.
Nothing more
Nothing less.

Thoughts
I don't know how to hold them back
I don't know how to pass across
They agonize me, they criticize me
I don't know how to unthink
I do as my thoughts instruct
I follow as they command
They brutalize me, they minimize me
I don't know how to break the link
I am capsized..
I am demoralised..
Thoughts.
I don't know how to let go
I don't know how to grow
I don't know how to sail beyond
It's a trap, I know
I stay still and let them take over
I just take a bow

I wish I had a little more time.
When I look out from the window
Lying on my hospital bed
Watching the sun go up and down
Watching the winds embracing the leaves
The showers that fall drop by drop
And all the wonderful colours of the sky
I wish I had a little more time
When I get visited by my loved ones
When I get pampered with best wishes
When they fill my walls with pictures and cards
When they remember all the nice times we had together
When they tell me how the kids are all grown up
I wish I had a little more time
When the drip falls from the bottle next to me
When it passes into my vein to keep me alive
When the doctors rush on my slightest sneeze
When they tell me how the world is goi...

Yoga mat.
A beautiful invention for doctors like me
No, I don't exercise.
It gives me the comfort of a cosy bed
On the frequent ICU nights
When nurses practice the team love
And I lay abandoned, alone
No place to sit, nowhere to lie
It gives shelter to my backbone
I don't do yoga, nor my figure is great
No fitness regime for me
But still, I love my yoga mat
It is my ultimate sleep ecstacy.
