You Are Strong…


When the whole world stops,
And there is nothing to hope,
You give your smile,
To convince me that all is well,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When my heart starts to bleed,
And it gets hard for me to breathe,
Then you hug me and kiss me to calm my mind,
I see the resilience in your eyes,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When it gets hard to take another step,
All I see are the walls and there is no way to escape,
You take my hand to go for a walk,
And show me a world beyond those walls,
Oh my baby! You are strong.

I don’t know what love is…

I don't know what love is,
But I'm sure it's not breaking another's trust,
It's not comparing one to another,
It's not keeping secrets to self,
It's not hiding the truth from other,
It's not pointing out only the weaknesses,
It's not blaming the other for the disastrous event,
It's not being selfish and thinking just about yourself,
It's not humiliating the other infront of your friends,
It's not owning the other like a material,
It's not about age,sex, money,status,race or religion,
Now, I know what love is,
It's just the opposite of all the above said,
Love is love,
Nothing less or nothing more.

Is There A Way?

Is there a way to find out,
What is inside your heart?
Is it the feeling of happiness of loving someone?
Or a feeling of pride of owning someone?
Is there a way to find out,
What your intentions are?
Is it to bring out the best in someone?
Or to tarnish by spilling out the the secrets of your trusted ones?
Is there a way to find out,
Who you really are?
Is that the big smile on your face is honest?
Or just a lie to hide your poisonous mind which is dishonest?
Is there a way to find out,
While I'm standing on this crossroad,
To run towards you with all the love in my heart,
Or to run away as fast I can with my life in my hand?

When someone rocks your boat…

When someone rocks your boat,
And there is nothing that you can do about,
Calm your body and mind,
But stand tall and keep this in mind,
That even a storm can't touch a tree,
With roots so strong and deep caused by all those hardships on the tree.
When someone rocks your boat,
And blames for something you knew nothing about,
Calm your body and mind,
Fly high and keep this in mind,
That dark clouds can't stop an eagle,
When it's soars high in the sky,
Believing just on its wings it flies high above those clouds in the sky.
When someone rocks your boat,
All you have to do about,
Is to keep holding on to the oars,
And to believe in yourself to row your boat with those oars.

My Little Sunshine….

When my life turns upside down,
When I feel all alone,
When none of the things feel right,
When everything in front of me is an upsetting sight,
I see you running towards me,
To wrap your arms around me,
Then you give me your soothing kiss on my cheeks,
Did I ever tell you this?
That you are my little sunshine,
You are my little sunshine...

The Remorse


I saw a girl down the street,
A toddler who loved a treat,
With an innocent smile she wandered around,
From one place to another as she didn't remember where she was found.
With a plastic carry bag on her hand,
She was following the big girl who was in command,
Picking up the litters to buy some food,
But I'm sure it was no good.
I walked past her in a hurry to get my bus,
Thinking that I would get another chance and no need of a fuss,
Doing the same thing the whole week,
Finally I found sometime for the weak.
Waiting for her with a bag in my hand,
I never thought that I would be so late to understand,
That reaching out to others is never a waste of time,
Now, all I got is a feeling of remorse that I was not there for her on time.

Forever…..

Saw pure love in their eyes,
When they were gazing each other's eyes,
A half a century of life together,
Still they love to have moments together.
Finding a person to love is a blessing,
But to be loved in the same way needs more blessings,
Their love and care for each other made my heart warm,
When I saw him tucking her to keep her body warm.
When they said forever in their vows,
They meant each and every word of their vows,
To be there for each other is not overrated,
Forever is not at all overrated.
