For my loving Son, on his Bday..

I remember 
The day you came to our lives..
Carefully holding you the first time
Pressing your soft skin against mine
Your little fingers,curled around 
A true bundle of joy, you were the missing link
A tiny little life that completed our family
We clasped onto each other,
It never ever felt so fulfilling 
I remember 
The joy and excitement
Of seeing your baby tooth.
Papa hurling you on up to the stars
Catching you and asking for some.
Rising and falling as you took baby steps
Adventurous expeditions up & down the stairs
You chasing us on your rattling walker,
Repeating your nonsensical blabber.
I remember
Discovering you from secret hiding places
Playing tickle monster that brought loud laughs
Waking up to Vroom and Zoom of your cars
Scaring you with petty threats to pull you from shower
Your first day to school, away from me
I tried standing strong so you wouldn’t loose smile
Time flies
I’m a collector, I accumulate memories
With you growing fast, I’m picking & keeping them safe
You have now turned into a young lad
But I’m still the same mother
I long for moments of our time together
Hugs from you mean the world
I wish when you fly away, my little birdie
You come back with lots of laughs.


Did she ask for too much?
Did she make unreasonable demands?
Why did you leave her waiting
Hanging there to be looked around…?
She felt so vulnerable and lonely
So naked in the crowd
The questioning and rude stares
The unfathomable gaze..
How would she have ever answered
All the people looking at her, unfazed?
She deserves a better chance
To be loved and treated right
A man in shining armour
Who would rise up for her pride…

Missing You

In the calm and quiet of night
In the cheer of bright sunlight
In the lovely colours of morning bloom
My lonely hands miss a feel
The warmth of your skin
Your caressing hold…

In the blues of soaring skies
In the settling drops of a murky rain
In the dews of shining grass blades
My eyes miss the infectious smile
The tenderness of your pursed lips
Your poignant grace..

Poem and Poet…

Conceived in the darkest
Deepest corners of mind
Cultivating from a passing streak
To an impregnable thought
I implant myself
You nurture me, define me
I’m born

You relish like a proud parent
As I chuckle and glorify
They try to understand
Shower me with praises
Interpret me in various ways
I flourish..

I reach my prime
I’m young & popular
Talk of the town
They sermonise me
I’m adored
My youth sublimes..

They now remember me
I’m cited and referred
I see your wrinkles
Your shaking hands
Your worries
The slipping smile
I observe you fade..
I see you dead and gone
I become eternally perdurable..

Book Speak..

Stacked on the shelf
Cornered on a table
Weighed under piles
I miss a touch
And loving glance
Styled in thoughtful ensemble
Accessorised in fonts and images
I lure you to hold
Caress my silhouette
Pick me in your warm hands
Inhale the old book vanilla
Place me on your resting lap
Submerse yourself
Flip through my pages
Engage in my tales
Loose yourself to the world…

The wait is getting long
I fear settling dust
Forget and Neglect
I dread the inevitable fade…


Humanity is Lost ..

How do I redeem
Where do I seek?
The lost humanity
And fellowmen-ship
Inspirations go astray
Emotions fall meek….

Is this what we strive
Is this the desire?
Terra firma splashed
With gushing rouge…
Crimson stretches ruled
By untamed spirits
And animalistic souls
Faith is convicted
Humanity cross-examined..

Massacre and killing
Blood thirsty eyes
Is there no love
No respect…
No celebration of life?


I bow before You
I light a candle
I cross my heart
I read the verses
I pray..

I sit before You
Fold my hands
Close my eyes
Chant the mantras
I pray…

I bow before You
I bend in dua
Five times a day
Repeat the rakáh
I pray…

I pray for love
For health
And peace
For courage
And strength
For family
And all…

I hope You listen
I wish You grant
Fulfil what I seek
You are the Almighty
You are the One!
I do what I can
I pray…



I give you life
I encompass you
Omnipresent yet invisible
I music your chimes
I swirl the leaves
I dance with trees

When I blow soft
You name me breeze
I brush your hairs
And caress your skin
I flutter butterflies’ wings

When I go wild
You call me names
ThunderStorm and Tornado
You hear me roar and scream
As I give birth to
Sand-dunes and whirlwinds
With my prowess immense
I can annihilate and suppress

Yet I plead and I beg
Feel me, Enjoy me
Nurture my whispers
Don’t mess and make me filthy
Don’t suffocate me.

Happy New Year 😄

It’s a New Year
A perfect time for the NEW
Chase new dreams
Make new memories
Gift some smiles
Buy some laughter
Unearth the hidden
Discover new goals
While you do that
Do remember
To Heal the pain
Mend the ties
Caress parched hearts
Ruminate on unkept promises
Broken resolutions
Words spoken harsh
Do not surpass
Live the moment
Nurture your souls
Remember the forlorn
For it won’t be long
We would be bidding
Farewell to the year gone.
