A Life Spent In Your Loving Memory !

Photo Credit: https://www.facebook.com/vinay.cygnus

I have been waiting by the window,
Hoping that one day you will be back,
It has been a long wait,
Yet my heart says you will comeback.

I still remember that day,
It was drizzling outside,
There was thunder and lightning,
And then it was drizzle no more,
It was a storm with heavy rain.

I was sitting by the window,
Waiting for you to comeback,
Hours turned into days,
And days into weeks,
But I never heard from you.

Heart grew weak as I was worried about you,
Finally one day they said,
The dead body by the lake was you.
But this silly heart refused,
It said my love can never die,
Everything people say is a lie.

With every year gone by,
This body of mine grew old.
There were nights when I woke up,
Cause I saw you in my dreams,
You stood there down the alley,
I would rush to the window,
I could feel my heart skip a beat,
As I would see a familiar shadow.

As I kept growing old,
Memories turned cold,
Years kept rolling,
Seasons kept changing.

And then that day it rained again,
People told me my wait was insane,
I was sitting by the window,
Just as I did in every rain.

Out there in the street,
I saw a little girl smile at me,
That toothless smile of her,
Reminded me of none but you.

I told myself she might be gone,
But she still stays alive,
In every smile around,
I know how silly it might sound,
But your memories will stay,
Fresh and glowing within me,
Always like the early morning dew.

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
