As soft winds sweep away the days
I look back on life through a haze.
Remember playgrounds, parks and friends,
In childlike gaze that never ends.
The laughter in a game of catch,
Shall memory ever attach…
To innocence in youthful eyes,
Catching the ball to Dad’s surprise.
I recall my first bike, first wreck,
Who picked me up, said, “What the heck?”
Convinced me to give one more try,
While, knees skinned, I forgot to cry.
Just the joy knowing he was there,
Making him proud my only care.
There was nothing I couldn’t do,
My heart held fast that to be true.
Though teenage years were kind of rough,
I sure wasn’t too big or tough.
You taught me to defend what’s right
And never back down from a fight.
So I learned the hard way to stand,
Still, with each lump, I found your hand.
Drawing from you an inner strength,
And stubborn pride of equal length.
But there the line of fate was drawn,
As though I blinked and you were gone.
I found myself facing the sun,
Not man, not boy, fatherless, one.
Eyes blinded by a void inside,
I could not live that you had died.
Alas finding it to be true,
I could do nothing without you.
Please, Dad, today just hear my call,
I’m sorry that I dropped the ball.
My life is wrecked, my knees are skinned,
My emotions undisciplined.
I can’t get up although I try,
Please don’t be upset if I cry.
Though I can’t fight what I can’t see,
Please, Dad, say you’re still proud of me.

Because I love you
Every time I think about you,
Your face sticks in my mind like glue
I think that there is something between us two,
Because I love you, I love you, I love you
My heart says that you are the only one,
Because you are second to none.
So let’s come together and learn,
The universal language of love and fun.
You are the most beautiful person in this world,
This makes everything around look so dull.
Whenever I am lost in the dark night,
You only make me see a ray of light.
Even though I am lazy,
Your thought makes me crazy.
In my dreams, you only come
Because without you nothing can be done.

My life is empty,
I feel incomplete.
Trust is uncertain,
live with deceit.
Lay my head down,
each night for rest.
this weight on my chest.
Doubt and confusion,
an endless sea.
Breaking the surface,
but never quite free.
Soul’s hidden passions,
left to stir below.
Caught up in the current,
of sweet misery’s flow.
And as this life fades,
or seems near end.
A comforting moment
is found in a friend.
Can this be true?
Do I see this in dream?
A love, a support
I have never seen.
The numbness now fades,
it’s under control.
Born from this love,
a Second Chance Soul……..

You see me, you like me.
is this true?
you want me, i want you.
things will happen, this i know.
i like you that’s how it goes.
it took a while for you to see,
but now you know, that it’s me.
your with me this is true,
you must know. my hearts not new.
it’s hurt and broken so please be true.
many have loved, I’ve loved few.
it’s like a dove as it flew.
my heart took off for only you.
please be real, don’t go away.
I’m scared to death,
this i must say.
joy and sadness it’s all the same,
this is not just a game.
I’m happy that you came,
to hold me tight and all the same.
you see me i see you,
i know this all must be true.
because my heart is loving you.

What is love? A question asked too often and answered wrong
Love resides in all hearts and makes life feel like a beautiful song
When she comes my way a happy song plays all day
Then out of the blue the illusion of love breaks away
She says she does not love me and thinks of me as a friend
Life becomes empty and I think I have reached a dead end
Actually she loves somebody else the word friend is an excuse
Knowing the facts I become a recluse
I drink and smoke and do some dope
My life is now almost without any hope
I don’t see anything like love which is everlasting and pure
People change and evolve every day I am quite sure
So I keep moving on and cherish the moments shared
The sparks which never become a fire but I think she cared
I ask myself was it love or lust
I tried to save it before it got bust
This poem is getting naughty but it is the truth
In my quest for true love I have become uncouth
I move on and discover another spark flying out of the blue
I don’t know if this is my true love but I will give it a shot or two
I get termed as Casanova as another one bites the dust
I want my true love so I keep looking for it I think I must
There is nothing like true love if only I knew
I wouldn’t waste my life trying out with quite a few
Stop looking for love and always feel nice
So all my friends please take this advice
Lust is not love but a temptation too hard to resist
Stop this lusty search for love as it does not exist.

When the night was solemn
I sit behind
Thinking of you
As i usually do
Until i heard you saying
Sorry that i keep you waiting
I never thought
There is someone thinking of me too.
Sometimes emptiness makes me everything
Sometimes being simple makes me great and powerful
Sometimes being poor makes me own the treasure and riches of many doors.
Sometimes seeking knowledge makes me fool
Sometimes gaining money makes me poor
Sometimes being loved makes me reckless when i fall
Sometimes being popular makes me nothing at all.
Sometimes when i journey I never seek peace and prosperity
Sometimes when i gained friends I find no one but just an enemy
Sometimes when I’m in trouble I find myself successful
And i find myself on top,when i fall.
Sometimes being sinful Makes me find mercy and forgiveness from my enemy
Sometimes when i cry It makes me brave and strong
Sometimes one day,I would say
It is a long journey for me to travel.

i have a dream one night before
but i did’nt know what it is for
still my life is incomplete
when i remember it was too late
it was only a dream before
so i decided to ask for more
i ask god for happiness god gave me you
i ask god for someone to love
but in my dreams he sent me his angel without knowing it”s you
still i feel something is missing
still i feel something
because i want to love someone who care
and to love a person real
but i dont know if its just a dream or it is true
because i cant simplify it the way i wanted to
so i ask him for someone to talk to
and my questions has been answered when he sent me YOU
now i have nothing to ask
i have nothing to say
because since you arrive
YOU COMPLETE ME!
