Why/When/How?!

Why did I ever stop believing

In all that’s good in this world?

When did I lose faith

In finding and keeping what’s rightfully mine!

How did I fall out of love

with the process of becoming?


Why did I let disappointments cloud my ray of hope?

When did I lose sight of my future, as bright as the stars I preach.

When did I forget that I’m as ready to take on the world as I will ever be.

How did I not see,

Hope is right around the corner;

Miracles happen without even asking;

And life is as beautiful as it can be.

You weren’t an easy goodbye,

But we agreed to disagree,

And knew being apart is how we’ll heal.


I close my eyes and it seems like ages ago

But you know I can still read your mind,

like it was just the day before.


I think of you and smile,

knowing that once upon a time,

You were mine.


I look at you and realise

I did something right.

You weren’t an easy goodbye.

And, though, apart we had to drift,

Our journey was a beautiful gift.

We cry but then we laugh so hard

At our misadventures.

What were they thinking?

What are we doing?

Questions never end;

No dearth of answers either.

We are looped in each other’s life.

We’re in our own trance,

Baking breads and cooking theories.

We keep picking up the pieces,

We’re holding it together,

And holding it for each other.

Soulmates exist.

We believe that.

We have that,

In each other for one another.

There’s one thing we’ll always believe,

There’s something so much better in our destiny.

We cry but then we laugh so hard.

We will always have each other.

Seeking Happiness

I seek what I know not I want;

I seek an abode in the eye of the storm.

I trust the winds were sent for a reason,

To clear the dust or uproot the unstable base.

I trust that He’s guiding me with His beacon,

Slow or fast, at least I’m moving ahead in my own pace.

I know not what lies ahead;

I fear of losing what’s not mine yet.

I seek what I know not I want.

Found You

I found you.

When I sat by myself, introspecting,

You were in the reflection of the glass that I was holding.

When I walked the distance in solitary,

You were in the shadow that kept me company.

When the noise all around became overwhelming,

You were the voice in my head that got me going.

 

It was surprisingly easy to spot you in all the hullabaloo,

Once I knew what I was looking for was you.

You’re my confidence, the best part of me.

And against all odds, I found you in me.

Oasis

There’s an oasis in front of me

And it looks so promising!

Being far from it is unsettling

Time is of the essence, you see!

There’s hope and wonder in the wait to reach,

There’s thrill and mystery in its trail,

It’s all glitter and it has got me on its chase.

It’s a place as warm as the winter sun,

And cool like the summer breeze.

It’s where I know I’ve got to be,

It’s where I know one day I’ll be!

Time-bound

I’m not yet ready for this moment to become a memory but I know I can’t rest.

There’s a greater unknown in the future but I have not even decoded the present.

I’m too slow to move on, too fast to get a hold on my thoughts;

So I’m pausing time in my mind, and trying to memorise everything that make this moment worth living for.
