Char Kadam

forest-walk

All I asked you dear was to walk “Char Kadam1” with me,

you didn’t even walk one Kadam2 and now you want to flee?

Didn’t even set a finger on you dear for a min,

and you think that we both have committed an unforgivable sin?

 

As far as I know you haven’t hurt a single soul till now,

still think you committed some kind of sin? I just don’t know how.

When will you dear do something that makes you happy?

got one life dear, why waste it and be unhappy?

 

Am little surprised at just how religious you dear are,

see, I went to catholic school more religious by far.

Yet that hasn’t influenced how I perceive religion,

I guess each person makes his own conclusion.

 

Enough of serious stuff for one day don’t you think?

other wise I may end up needing a strong drink!

I am just kidding dear and was trying to pull your leg,

oops I forgot I am not supposed to even touch your leg!

Sick Kavita

mountain-meadow

Sorry my dear for the disappointment, I was on sick leave,

physically in such bad shape, rhyming is so hard to achieve.

Hope you will understand my dear loving sweetheart,

once I feel better, will give it a restart!

 

Really missed you dear for past two days like crazy,

it seems more someone is sick, more one feels lonely.

Any kind of sickness I can handle without any care,

not hearing from you is something I can’t bear.

 

Someone once said “No one is busy, it’s all priority”

can you prove that this case is in minority?

Or will you please move me up the list of your priority ?

this is my only humble request to you in all the sincerity.

 

Mann ko sukoon mela aap se baatein karke,

dil ka bojh halka hua aapke haase sunke.

Aapke meethi awaz ne mujhe deewana banaya,

akhir khuda jaane yeh aap ke maya!

Wrong Train

It has been just one day and felt like eternity,

didn’t know I will miss you dear with such intensity.

Feels good to be back on my routine of writing,

which brings me to my comfort zone, which is exciting.

 

“I think, I will miss you” is all you can manage?

no complaints dear, I like the way you choose your language.

It could be have been worse with words like “I don’t care”

thank you dear for letting little of your emotions bare.

 

Some wise old guy said “Sabar ka phal meetha hota hai1

he sure knew what he was talking about, by the way.

Affection has grown much stronger after this short intermission,

will continue after a short break, my usual rendition!

 

Have a great weekend dear, hopefully your test is done,

time to relax, kick back and to have some fun.

or you can stop by to see me,

am always at the usual place until three!

 

Don’t know if I should start with question or an answer,

let me please precede the question to ask with a flower!

Just to up the chances of getting honest and frank reply,

Dear, do you really love me or am just another guy?

 

Some people say “Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder”

those people must bare the burden of mistake on their shoulders.

Coz I have never ever set my eyes on you dear,

Yet, I love you like I have known you for years.

 

I just got on the wrong train and reached Upper West Side2

well dear, I guess I deserve it for letting my mind slide.

Got to be careful next time before boarding any train,

or before my dear, your love drives me completely insane!

  2. Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Speaking of Poem

mist-forest

After sifting through about twenty pages of history in here1,

found the One-Line-Gem that you decided to share.

As the old saying goes, it is the thought that counts,

of course it counts and who am I to de-nounce!

 

Wish I can write Kavita2 just like Vikram Babu,

can’t get a start without being fluent in Urdu3.

That’s what I get for living in “Melting Pot”

no use pretending to be something which I’m not.

 

Do you smell little jealousy somewhere here?

your nose is not deceiving you Dear.

Always knew you had keen sense of smell,

like you smelt arrogance last night as well.

 

Dear, your Urdu is so fluid and flawless,

care to write something, If I may press.

Doesn’t have to be long-winded or perfect,

just something over which we both can connect.

 

Time to call it a day and hang up my writing pen,

will wait for your email or a very few words until then.

You have a great evening dear, if I don’t see you,

will read your each and every words before tomorrow is through.
