As Years Pass By

As years pass by,
I wonder if would ever see anyone to whom I said goodbye,
All my friends from my childhood,
And the people who lived in my neighborhood.


The teachers who taught me the right from wrong,
My first crush with whom I never got along,
The people who encouraged me to dance and paint,
The grandma next door who told the story of a saint.


As years pass by,
I wonder to how many people I have said goodbye,
The people who once I thought that I could not live without,
Now, sometimes I think what was that about?


As years pass by,
I wonder how fast the time flies by,
If I could ever walk back my life,
I would never miss a chance to say a proper goodbye even though we had a strife.

Angel In Disguise👼

If you look really closely, you will find a lot of angels around you. Don’t believe me? It may be because they always come in front of us in disguise. Yes…. Angels in disguise.

In my life, I have met several angels who were there to protect me or help me when I was in trouble. I’m just going to share one of the experiences I had when I was a school girl.

Several years ago, I think I was in eighth standard, I met an angel as an autorickshaw driver. It was the time that we had just moved to our native place from a different state. So, it was a time of lot of changes. New place, new environment, new school and new friends. You know how difficult it is when you are in high school and everything is new to you.

One day, I was taking bus to my school and I took the wrong one. After sometime when I realized my mistake, I asked the bus conductor whether that bus goes to the place where my school is situated. And the answer was obviously no. He asked me to get down from the bus at a place from where I could get another one. I waited there for sometime but there was no bus. It was almost time for my school and I got scared. I didn’t know where I was and at that time we didn’t have any mobile phones. I had no idea what to do.

Then, I saw a autorickshaw driver. I asked him whether he can drop me to my school. He smiled at me and then said to sit down in the autorickshaw. After fifteen or twenty minutes we reached the school. I could see that I was late and school had already started. I asked the rickshaw driver how much I had to pay. He said an amount which I can’t remember now but I didn’t have that with me when I checked my bag. I looked at him and said that I study in 8th standard. I asked him whether he can wait for sometime so that I could go and ask my classmates whether they had got the money as I didn’t have that much with me. He again gave me a smile and said, “Don’t worry about it. Go to the class.” He didn’t take a single paise from me. I almost cried and said thank you from my heart.

That’s, one of my angels in disguise and I will never forget his kindness in my life.

A Regret In My Life…

Have you ever had an incident in your life which has affected you a lot later? Something, which is still fresh in your mind even if it had happened a long time ago. A face that you cannot forget.

I have a story to tell you which has been haunting me since several years. I still remember the day when I was going to church with my mother and my little brother. I think I was twelve or thirteen years old. While walking, I saw a middle aged man, walking towards us. From a distance itself I had a feeling of uneasiness. When he came nearer I gave him a glance and I took my mother’s hand to hold in shock.

You must be thinking that he might have done something. Then, you are wrong. In this story, I’m the villainess. My behavior was totally based on his physical feature, his facial disfigurement. It was like he didn’t have a nose or mouth and those organs were all joined together to appear like a big mass on his face. I had never seen anyone like that before. The way I reacted after I saw him was so rude and unkind that he quickly walked past us bowing his head. But before he did that I saw disappointment and sadness on his face.

That night, I couldn’t sleep because I got scared of him. It didn’t occur to me at that time that I’m the one who had hurt him. Only thing that bothered me was his face. It took a few years and a nursing degree course to make me realize what was the cause for his disfigured face. What I did was so wrong even though it was unintentional.

I still remember his face but the feelings are not the same. Regret has taken the place of fear. That was the first and the last time I saw him. I never got the chance to say sorry to him in person.This post is a confession and I would like to take this chance to say, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I was so ignorant and unkind that I behaved like that. I’m sorry that I judged you based on your face without knowing you in person. I’m sorry that I hurt your feelings when I looked away because I wanted to avoid you. I’m deeply sorry for what I have done.” So if you read this, I hope that you do, please take it as an apology from my heart.

Clouds….

“If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud formations.”

Charles M. Schulz

Clouds have always been an attraction to my eyes. As a child, I used to look up the sky and tried to identify the shapes that the clouds form. To be honest, I still do it. You may think it’s silly but I can’t help it . Sheep, cows, fish, Jesus and fairies are just few examples that I have found. All the above images are taken on my phone on different days and times. Oh yes! I love to collect those pictures too.

Hope you will enjoy the pics and the cloud idioms, quotes and phrases.

Every dark cloud has a silver lining….
Under a cloud ….
On cloud nine….
In the clouds….
Head in the clouds….
Gathering clouds….
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
― Maya Angelou

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another!”

Mehmet Murat ildan

“The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be?- it is the same the angels breathe.”

Mark Twain

“Don’t forget: beautiful sunsets need cloudy skies.”

Paulo Coelho

May Be…

We were in love when the fate decided to separate us,
Holding on end of the rope from top of the mountain,
You told me that you would never let me go,
But, when I decided to let go of myself from your life,
I just was making sure you to be safe and happy even without me in it,
But, I promised that I will be waiting for you in the next.
While falling I asked you to run as soldiers were marching towards you,
I saw you were dragged out of my sight as I was slowly closing my eyes.



I have been waiting one life after another as I promised,
Searching for you, I knew that I will recognize you,
As our souls knew each other long before that these generations could even think,
When we finally met, you had no memory of the past,
You thought that it was just another thing and could make some time pass,
May be I will have to wait hundreds of years to see the whole you again,
When you will remember the end of the rope and the hope in my eyes,
Or may be you will just listen to your soul this time.

The Panic Attack

She was a lady who knew what she wanted,

And only called nurses when she only doubted,

That she can do an activity by herself,

Or when she thought that can’t talk anymore to self.

One day, she pressed the callbell,

When the nurse saw her, she was panicking like hell,

Worried about something?” the nurse wanted to know,

Please tell me what’s the matter and don’t tell me no.”

She said, “I wasn’t afraid but I have started to fear the death”,

Reassuring her not to worry, the nurse asked, “what made you think about the death?”

“I don’t know, may be I’m just alone in this room. Can you stay here for a minute and talk to me?”,she said

“Why not”, the nurse answered.

A few days passed and she went unconscious,

Her loved ones came as she was on her way to heavens,

When she took her final breath, the same nurse was on duty,

And she saw her lying still with all her beauty.

While giving the last care all the conversations came alive,

Was it panic attack or did she know that she won’t survive?

Caged…



Never thought of going to prison,
But it seems like it's the season,
To cage myself in my thought,
And to watch what my life has brought.
The good, the bad and the worst,
Creeping in my mind to be the first,
Even thoughts are competing against each other,
As they are too proud to follow another.
Why does this competition never cease?
Everyone wants to be the best at their ease.
One after another, they just come and go,
Leaving their trails, so deep and thorough,
Scribbling their signatures in my mind,
Making sure that there is no escape to outside.

A Forgotten Mother



What takes a heart to be at rest,
To not to think of all the days which were the worst.
What takes a mind not to wander to,
All the way back which were never meant to.
However I try, I can't call them back,
It's like they have been taken from someone in the past.
Haunting memories of an innocent smile,
Blue eyes with an ocean inside,
The days were so wonderful with you on my side,
All those pictures are talking to me and tearing me from inside.
When all mothers are celebrating the day with their children by their side,
All I can hope is you are at rest with no pain to cry,
Oh my baby! I hope you are having a good time with God by your side.
-JMJ

Dedicated to all the mothers who lost their children.
