New Beginning

Rest in peace my warrior in blue, Six years have flown by, Since the day I stayed back on earth, And you joined the sky. Initially, I tried to be like you, I tried to fill up your shoes, Then it clicked deep within My roads were mine to choose. I learnt to stand on my two feet, And broadened my shoulders further, I continued as mom, I stopped being the father. You always were and will always be, The man our girls look up to, I need to teach them that I am me, And you will always be you. Yes, you are no longer present, Physically in their life, But in every single action of theirs, I always see you alive. Grateful I am for the moments we spent, As soulmates on this earth, But I must confess your death has been, In true terms my rebirth. Every life has a life purpose Yours was to bring a change in mine, Your job was done, you had to go, I now accept it as fine. It took me years to find inner peace, And make amends with my soul, Your deed on earth was

Angel Flight: Prologue

It was time. I closed my eyes. It seemed like ages, but yes, I felt nice to get back into a cockpit. I knew I was born to fly. I am a strong believer in second chances. I am so glad that I got one here as well.  "Are you sure you want to start so early?" My co-pilot and captain of the helicopter was a tad apprehensive. "I am absolutely certain sir," I replied souding as confident as I could. He nodded and thereafter started rattling out the pre-flight checklist. I quietly followed his instructions and started physical checks. 

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart

Dearest Sweetheart Up in Heaven, Its yet again time for me to sit back and live all the wondrous moments I spent with you. Completing 12 years of togetherness in spite of our distance is not a joke. You know what, it has taken me six long years to wish you on the day of our anniversary. To look back, the past six years have always been a roller coaster ride for me, especially on 10th May. I have always been my vulnerable best on this date. But as we enter our 13th year I realised things need to change now. As we enter into our 13th year of being You and I, I cant help but remember so many insignificantly significant moments in our lives. How can I forget the confused look on the face of a young bachelor sitting in front of this room the whole night reeling under the shock that a girl had proposed marriage to him. We did live in a society back then when it was uncommon for a role reversal of this sort. I still recollect the expressions of your boss as he walked into my office, hi

The Telephone: A Sonnet

Whenever the telephone does ring, My heart always skips a beat, I do not know with what news I will meet, Will I cry or will I sing? With such doubts in my mind, I unwillingly creep up to it, At once I wish I could peacefully sit, For sad news I always hate to find. But my mind then gets filled with a thought, If I cannot face a mere telephone, I am the cowardest person ever known, Deciding its better to be brave than not, A new inspiration gets filled within me, And thus I answer the call with much glee.

Conversation With God

I went to the place I often frequented And was flabbergasted with what I saw. Unable to control myself I questioned, “Lord what has been done to you? Why in the name of religion Is shoving and pushing permitted Amongst those Who want to have a glimpse of you? Why is special treatment given To those who pay a hefty sum To the Trustee fund? Why is there a separate gate For VIPs to meet you? Aren’t we all equal before you?” Disappointed, I continued my rant, “Where is the sanctity that once existed In your so called Sanctum Sanatorium? Where is my Lord who used to console When I ran up to him whenever troubled? Who are you now? Why have you changed? Why cannot things be as before?” I was unhappy, broken inside, This place wasn’t what it used to be. As I looked at the idol when I could, Amidst shoving hands and shaking heads, I heard a voice that no one could, I heard a whisper in my head. “Dear child I am still the same But some things are not in my hands.

Fighter's Vow

Am thankful for this life, For being a daughter, friend,  Sis, mom and wife. Could I have asked for anything more? I don't think for sure. Yet that quiet demon within me, Doesn't like to see Me happy. It tells me to ask for the moon, And that too, real soon. Time 'o' clock is ticking fast. If I don't act now It won't last. It knows I have broken pieces inside, Scars and wounds I cannot hide. But one thing is for sure, I know whats mine And wont ask for more. I almost gave up but now I won't, I have people who say 'Don't'. I won't give up I will fight, For what belongs to me, What is right. Doubts in my head you'll face defeat, I will fight you till I succeed.

Watch Your Back

One day as I went to leave My little girl at school. She looked up with wonder-filled eyes And spoke with a demeanour cool. "Mommy," she said "please don't go, I am scared to walk alone. What would I do if I fall? What would I do if you are gone?" I smiled at her and I said,  "When you fall I'll be there to catch. And when you walk, do walk ahead, I'll always watch your back." And then she asked, "What if you had to go?" What if I don't find you around?" I replied, "No matter where we might go, Our hearts are always bound." My little girl smiled and stood to walk While I stood on her track, We both knew I was there, Always, to watch her back.

Remember Me

Remember  me, When your chips are down, When the world around Makes you frown. Remember me, When your hopes are low And you do not know Where to go. I only wish to be The friend you need When you are sad. I only wish to be Happy memories That make you glad. Remember me, When life seems steep When you want to weep And you cannot sleep. Remember me, When you cannot cope And there is no scope For a ray of hope. Let me be the light On a silent night That bring you smiles. I'll be the happy thoughts Comforting shots For many miles. Remember me, Think me to be A crazy owl. Remember me, That is how I wish to be Remembered.

Love Conquers It All

Dearest sweetheart up in heaven, I thought of a silent wish today, Yet every fragment of my soul, Wants me to shout out and say. Have a wonderful year with your friends, Enjoy your stay above, I know you know that I am fine, After all, we are soulmates my love. I may sound wonky and delusional, For saying you're alive in my life, For the world you may be dead, But I will always be your wife. Love doesnot have an expiry date,  Especially when its true, Nor does distance make any difference, A case in point me and you. Love is really a funny thing, It shows up when you least expect, And when it did thirteen years ago, It came with honesty, trust, respect. I am still human not an angel like you, I might have made mistakes, But the love I feel you shower me with, Is the reason my heart never breaks. People say Time heals all wounds, Oh yes it did for me for sure, And with every passing day, I love you even more. I love
