Just a small poem about things I like. Everything requires some gratitude.
The sound of the thunders and the fragrance after rains
The smile that hides all kinds of pains.
The smell of books I can’t let go
Never giving up and saying, “Hello!”
Mom’s cooked food, all the special dishes
To see new born babies smile are world’s greatest riches.
To run in the mornings and listen to favorite songs
Imagine, aspire and know the rights and wrongs.
The smell of freshly baked cakes
The time I learn from huge mistakes.
The laughter with best friends
And the tears of goodbye at two ends.
The family reunions, the soccer games
The long summer days and dancing in the rains.
Cherish what you have, right here and right now
Who knows tomorrow and future anyhow?
Living life is such a beautiful concept no one knows about.
We all have our ways of living this life
We have different ways of waking up, or kissing our wife.
Forget life, we can’t even hold the same coffee cup the same way
We do everything unique, everyday.
But there’s one thing we all do
We all wake to live a day so new.
None of us get the same moment twice
But some let it go and others choose wise.
So how do you live this so many seconds of life
Do you make them count or sleep over because it’s just life?
Do you feel and experience and stop and breathe?
Or do you just wake up and get to work like every other need?
Fill life with experiences, with moments, not things
Have stories to tell, after you there won’t remain many things.
Yes, I’m old fashioned!
They say, “Old is gold!” and that’s the treasure I am
I’m that piece of note, that always turns into the flam.
One always needs me, I’m important to you
I’m the history or reference you always look up to.
You’re incomplete without me to light your fire
I’m the very dream of your desire.
I’m the water that turns ice and turns vapor too
I’m the air that’s in and around you.
I’m beautiful, I turn your head around
I’m cunning too, a complexion that’s wheatish brown.
I see but pretend it’s unseen for you take a step
I hear but I don’t listen, so correct your misstep.
I’m a setter, not a trend myself.
I’m a classic. I know how to hold the magic in oneself.
The only thing that will never leave me bereft of words is the love for you.
There are days I can’t stop myself from thinking about you
Nights that turn sleepless just because I’m missing you.
There are times I just want to run into your arms
Moments that I just want to turn to be mesmerized by your charms.
It’s difficult to stop your thoughts from swaying into my mind
And they won’t even leave me alone once they’ve flowed. How kind!
All I wish is to be caressed and feel beautiful yet again
While I’m here, you’re there and I think of you every now and then.
I was never ready for it.
Are you ever ready for love or it just happens?
Do you wait for an occasion to make new friends?
Is it so difficult to start every time?
What and when is really the right time?
No moment is perfect or right
We just have to bring it to consideration and sight.
Every new breath is the opportunity to create
And every new morning is truly worth the wait.
Every opportunity doesn’t knock
Some just wait for the door to unlock.
Don’t shut your doors to hard and wait until you’re ready
Most mountain climbs are risky and unsteady.
Take the first step and then see how
Things work right here and now.
Always value the one who gives you everything they ever have.
The world is earning money, learning new subjects, living new dreams
While something that makes even the corporate world happy is still ice-creams.
A bag of a million dollars doesn’t matter to a kid who loves chocolates
And who are a housewife’s coordinates or subordinates?
We’re looking for a job that makes our families happy
But mom being around is actually just our therapy.
Building new bridges and creating new gaps
We’re making houses but forgetting homes perhaps.
To earn enough money don’t forget the one who had
Given up on everything for you, everything that they had.
We fought and fought and fought until the next day. The next morning, we laughed and laughed and laughed.
One always has dozens of reasons to fight about
But we always require just one reason to love, without doubt.
