I can still feel you



Udaipur - Jan 2012

Shimmering sunrise, heartwarming sunsets
Calm waters, chilly breeze
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

City walks, strangers and talk
Some serendipity, some delight
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

Narrow lanes, princely feel
Pitch dark skies, illuminated sights
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

Wandering souls, togetherness and love
I can still feel you
With my closed eyes

I want you by my side


Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco - August 2009
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco - August 2009

I want you by my side
On a quiet escape
To find solace
In an unknown place
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To weather through
A a thunderstorm
On a voyage
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To cuddle through
A cold winter night
With nothing in sight
With you right by my side

I want you by my side
To chase
A distant dream
Outside our realms
With you right by my side

Try but don’t Cry


Rome - 2011
Rome - 2011

I tried but failed,
I cried and nothing changed.

I shall again try,
But this time I won’t cry.
For every time I cry,
I loose hope to try.

For I still remember,
A line from my school days
Try try and you will succeed

For every failed try I make,
I learn how not to partake.
For every chance I take,
Is my another shot at the cake.

I am Anna Hazare



Portrait of Anna Hazare by Siddharth Iyer (link below)

I have bribed a few, Took the easy way through
But all along the way, I knew I was not true

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us how we could stand for what we believe in
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I read in the books, about the father of our nation
But none after him taught me, how to put those words into action.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population
Showed us the way to put Gandhi’s words into action
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare

I watch in dismay, as bigger scams unfold everyday
But I see no punitive action. I feet robbed; I feet raped.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion.
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
Talked less, but prompted us to take the first step.
And now I say no more to corruption, Bcz I am Anna Hazare.

I was not born when freedom fighters gave their life for the nation.
But if we don’t stand up today, it would mean disrespect to their contribution.

Then Along came a man, Who voiced my opinion
His words echoed in the hearts of a billion population,
He shouted a battle cry, to fight for India, Against Corruption
And now I say no more to corruption
Bcz I am Anna Hazare

How you make me feel

Sinhagad, Maharashtra - 2010

Your thought keeps me in present,
Your thought keeps me lost.
At times I lose my sleep,
At times I find myself.

You make me feel loved,
You make me feel missed.
At times I feel apart,
At times I feel very near.

If only words could describe,
How you make me feel.
If only words could describe,
How it feels to feel complete.

You feel like a dream,
You make me feel real.
At times I don’t wanna fall asleep,
At times I don’t wanna wake up.

You make me feel high,
You make me feel low.
At times I can barely keep afloat,
At times I feel I can fly.

If only words could describe,
How you make me feel.
If only words could describe,
How it feels to feel complete.

What it means for me, when I say, ‘I love you’?

Unknown Artist - June 2010

For some time,
I would wonder
What it means to me,
when I say, ‘I love you’?

Is it the anticipation
Is it curiosity
Is it the butterflies.

Or is it the pain,
Is it the disappointment,
Is it the heartbreak.

Now with time
I think, I know
What it means to me,
when I say, ‘I love you’…

I mean to say
that I would be true
Be right or wrong,
but still be true, with you

I mean to say
that I really care
About you, for you
Now and forever

I mean to say
that I really respect
What you think, What you believe
Your values are also mine
