Taken For Granted..

Like a candle she burns for others,
But gets blamed for the death  of a firefly who tests her patience.

Like an ocean she gives lives to others,
But gets cursed for all the drownings who underestimated her and forgot the strength.

Like a raindrop she quenches the thirst of others,
But is defamed for the destructions caused due to the negligence of yours.

How long will you take her for granted?

Cancer

When I first found you,
I thought it's good to have you,
You made me believe that you helped me grow,
And that you are the reason that I glow.
But then as years passed by,
You made your way to each and every cells of mine,
Killing all the normalcy,
There were times that I couldn't even clearly see.
Many years passed and you became a part of me,
Biting my lips I tolerated all the pain you caused to me.
But now, as your toxin is spreading to my brain and affecting the people around me,
It's time to do a surgical incision and do an ectomy.

Rest In Peace!



She can see herself on the ground,
Cold and stiff with no earthly bound,
Free from all the life's strife,
And all the words of the world acting like a knife.
People came to pay her last respect,
Standing in between them she did expect,
A little love that she always longed for,
Was that too much to ask for?



She could hear that they were saying prayers,
Judging about her destination in their heart with fake tears,
As she could now understand them inside out,
Stop! That's all she wanted to shout.
Instead she looked once more on the body and smiled,
Then walked away leaving everything behind.

Immersion


I found myself in a lovely place,
Where a gentle breeze touched my face,
Where the mountains stood with their heads high,
And where the birds flew freely in the sky.
The river was so pure that it mirrored my face,
The grasses were so soft which reminded me to offer my prayers,
Where the sun enjoyed playing hide and seek with the clouds,
And the trees danced slowly in the wind singing their songs aloud.
Then I saw a familiar face which I love dearly,
Those eyes were speaking to me and all I wanted was a hug so tightly,
That we could breath out all our air to the atmosphere,
And release our spirits into that place that we really care.

The Treasure..


A treasure is lost somewhere in deep.
Something so valuable that one needs to keep.
A treasure is stolen by a wicked witch.
How hard have I tried to keep it safe from the breech?
A treasure I had to give up because of the sinister disease.
Can it be a reason for me to cease?
A treasure was taken from me by the people around.
Shall I hide myself when they surround?
A treasure was vanished behind my wrinkled face.
As old I get, should I be in the loneliest place?


At last, I found out how silly I was,
To think even that the treasure was,
Taken by someone or something from outside,
As I found that the treasure was all along inside.
I started to give a smile to the mirror,
First thing in the morning when no one was nearer,
And when I stepped out of the house, I gave a smile to a crying child,
Then it occurred to me that this treasure can be shared to someone in need.
It made my day as it felt like a bliss,
The lost treasure was found on my lips.

Spring on it’s full swing

When nature is at it’s best, all we can do is admire it’s beauty and be grateful for all the blessings of God..

Can’t take another step…
Flower shower
A meeting with the clouds
Rejuvenation
A view from my window

All these pictures were taken today while having a walk with my daughter on my phone. These views gave me so much joy and relaxation that I cannot explain. I hope that you will like them too.

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.

Dedicated to all the mothers who lost their children.
