The stream of river flowing besides my home,
Makes me feel I am in Rome.
Flowing through the beautiful hills and plains,
Full of wonders, in summers and rains,
Nourishing birds, animals, plants and fishes,
Providing us canals fulfilling our wishes,
The center of the living community around,
Supporting all civilizations that surround.
It does not follow any color or creed,
It does not favor any distinguished breed.
Rivers provide the source of life,
Rivers replenish the food of life.
The amazing curves it carves in geology,
Evoke a wonder, a mystery for theology.
We worship them as our mothers,
The Ganga, the Yamuna, and all the others.
Yet we see, that they bleed and drain,
With plastic and chemicals and acid rain.
We pollute the holy source of water,
It’s worse than killing, even manslaughter.
I call upon you, my brothers and sisters,
To take a pledge, to stop this act sinister.
The colorless water has turned black,
Act before it’s too late to turn back…
Save our rivers!
For all my breaths, n heartbeats till yet
I cherish most of those with u, I bet.
Its difficult to start, and even more to forget
For I m forever in your debt.
Words coy before your modest deeds
Inexplicable and Impeccable needs
Late night maggie with Examination leads
Us Strung together like prayer beads
Celebrated together this ordeal of life,
All our achievements and all our strife
May u always b in the prime of life.
I wish you many more decades of prosperous life.
The nature of the nature is to nurture and to care
The nature is very gentle & full of love that is rare
She loves like a mother & provides like a father
The air we breathe & the food we are after
All of us take shelter on this mystic abode
Slowly degrading it & increasing its load
The wind, the water & the ground we pollute
We make nature suffer without a dispute
The snow capped mountains & the lush green trees
The free flowing river & the still calming seas
We are about to lose all, stop if U please
I miss the chirpy birds & the fragrant breeze
I want to play in the farms & beneath the trees
Wake up to this cause & help nature breathe
Justice has prevailed,
They say, celebrating with ale.
All they did, all we did,
meaningless, unless they hid!
Hid under the curtains dark,
all our efforts and all our mark
To reveal what was non-existent
coz we were not brave, but hesitant
Coying before the capital punishment
We knelt down, to avoid harassment.
Every voice succumbed by the prime,
As if even asking was a crime.
Tackling all the counters in supreme fashion,
They forgot, it was but, all about passion.
Killing joy with their bare blows,
Mercilessly slaughtering the dreams we behold,
they ordered, ruled and abused us,
& we degraded coz we fell for lust.
Tangled ourselves in the vicious circle,
Craving for that extra bit in our cubicle,
We were left waiting for the final verdict,
Now, we look back to what we did, & realize,
We are not even close to what we deserve,
Laughing, they announce, ‘The Unfair Justice’, has been served.
Walking past the memento of our friendship,
With lowered eyes, across the legend of our friendship,
I feel scared of the thoughts creeping in me,
The hollow whispers seeking the weakness in me.
The moist fragrance of our steps that’s there,
Draws me closer to our presence that’s there.
Visions of our snaps flashes across my eyes,
Blinding me through those glimpses in the skies.
Memories of love, of laughter, of care,
Memories of pain, & fear we shared,
All that’s there to me, to you,
All that’s there from cheers to hue,
Everything just floods my mind,
& I go numb as these memories unwind.
All my energies drain in front of the Pacific,
I feel exhausted & this ain’t specific.
But, I walk alone each day, each night,
Right past this legend to add to my plight!
And, I long for your presence here,
With the cheers and joys of this fare!
Feeling a pang of pain across my limbs,
The one bond denied was not a fling.
Catapulting the emotions through a sling,
There’s no particular favor in this chaos and meddling.
Disrupting the lives of all we love,
Emotions and feelings all go numb.
The way they do, what they do,
Is far from right, they overdo!
The orthodox behavior, they call religion,
Is a part of the past, a call to legion!
Why just can’t they see, there’s a lot they oversee!
Watching through the binoculars of the past, they can’t see,
The smiles of the present and the jubilee,
That we hold in one can’t be transferred with a glee!
Emotions are fragile, and they can’t always be
Molded and soldered to fit just anybody!
Devastating the trust that we hold in you,
You blame only us, for the fear in you!
Leaving us to the one we love,
You won’t lose us to our dear love.
The thoughts and emotions that forced you to say,
Words of distrust & experience this day!
The brutal truth that we faced this day,
Will show up again, again some day!
The addiction of that intoxicating presence
The aura of that unbelievable essence
Amazes me and would continue to do so
But it’s hard to accept and harder to let go
The thought of losing a friend in you
& the fact, there’s nothing I can do
Just aggravates the pain that follows
The agony of companionship moving towards shallows.
The more I think, the more it clears,
I owe you more, than just tears.
The moments of cheers that we shared
Would be more memorable to me, than we cared!
Your guidance has been the light in the dark
& my life has become a walk in the park.
Though saying ‘Good Bye’ is hell lot of a pain
I would always look forward to meet U again!
