When you needed a hand,
I was there to hold you,
When you needed an ear,
I was there to listen too,

I was there to watch you laugh,
And to see you cry,
I was there to tell you to let it go,
And sometimes to give it another try,

I was there when you needed someone,
To talk to till late in the night,
I was the nice guy to see you on the phone,
With your guy, while I consoled myself that you were happy though I lone,

I told you things will be okay,
When you got afraid of the dark,
I told you that no problem was so big,
That you couldn’t make the walk.

I was there with you,
But I guess things start to end somewhere,
And it’s hard to let you go.

But far in a place,
I know you will be happy and high,
With your guy, I will be a faded memory of June,
For once I loved you,
But things end,
And I will end too.. soon,

And if you do remember me,
I hope it brings you a smile,
For, when you asked how long I shall be there for you,
I said, forever,
Because when I needed someone,
You were there for me, forever too. 🙂


The train or the hill?

There has been a zillion times when I have told myself that I will do something this last sem. I will study this, that, play this game, read that novel or at least write more. But no, my lazy body doesn’t allow me to do what I wish. Maybe in some days I will get my body to work the way I intend it to, for now, I don’t see that happening. But, with the fever right now I guess I felt like browsing through movies and writing something.

Coming back to the point. Well, it has been around an year and a half since I started blogging. I didn’t publicise it because:
1) I really am not that awesome writer who has to be in the top league
2) My writing was meant for some close friends and I am more than glad to have their constant responses time to time, indirectly or directly. So, kind of fulfills my purpose, right? I am glad they are still here to give their time to stop and read. *thank you audience* Please keep pouring in with your feedbacks, it generously helps me evolve as a bettwer writer.

So, as far as I remember it was the third time I was watching the movie ‘Leap year’. I love movies with picturesque background. It is one such movie. Now, there is this scene in this movie which really made me write this article. Amy Adams (Boy is she hot!) and Mathew Goode are stuck at a railway station. They are waiting for the next train due in an hour or so. There is a beatiful hill with a castle in the backdrop and Mathew asks Amy to take a visit. Well she hesitates but eventually gives in.

The point behind this story telling is a simple one. What would you have chosen if given an option? The train or the hill? Our lives are pretty busy with the hustling and rumbling of the trains. We keep moving from one place to another, without resting, without thinking. Where we are now, seldom pleases us. We always try to discover something new, something better, rarely stopping to appreciate the beauty all around us. People and places are left behind while we try to seek comfort in the new uncomfortable aspects of life. The hill though how gorgeous it is, fails to generate the happiness we think we deserve. So, what if we stop to admire the hills around us. There will always be a next train, right? What will you choose? The train or the hill?

Well, enough of senti stuffs for now. I guess I need to get back in my blanket, shiver and hope the fever decreases as soon as possible. God it’s cold in Goa. -_-


How often do you stand in a corner and see it fly away,
It has made you laugh and cry all the same,
It showed you light when darkness made you pay,
Time has been there to let nothing go to vain.

How often have you wondered about the things that have changed,
Some faces some places, they are no longer the same,
So many people passing by and you stood there and waved,
For, time has kept the best ones in your life that came.

How often has the clocked turned with memories throwing you back thereby,
While you laugh and cheer, there were also memories when you used to cry,
The tears, be it sad or happy never matter for it were with one your closest,
And today it seems so distant, but they were beautiful, like a dozen roses.

You might have travelled miles till now and many a miles more to go,
But when you rest and lean on your back, these memories will again grow,
And then you will smile, even for a while, to leave the worry behind,
Because time is what makes you, without it, life’s a beautiful bell, ringing without its chime.

People, places will someday no longer matter when you keep on with your travel,
Keep up your journey with the memories in your backpack, as time makes more memories to unravel,
So while time permits you, make as many more memories as you can,
But don’t forget who you were, because this was where it all began.


A cup of coffee

What would you do if I dissolved in the shadows and never came back,

Would you still be there to wait for me,

The memories will be the only things left,

Would you still hope,



Another day of ‘us’ will be?


What would you do if I fall down and hurt myself,

Would you bear the sight of my tears,

The support will be only thing left,

Would you still hope,



Will you again see me spree?


What would you do if I truly needed you,

Would you be there for me as always you have been,

The care will be the only thing left,

Would you still hope,



I will be smiling again as it always will be?


What would you do if this moment never came back,

Would you be there to remember the days,

Well the memories will be the only things left,

Would you still hope,



Our tears and smiles will again be free?


What would you do if we meet after days,

Would you be there to share a cup of coffee,

Well the silence will be the only thing left,

Would you still hope,



Our laughs will drown all the silence that could be? 😀


The Walk

And it was a beautiful day,

Clouds swarming the sky, with a soft breeze passing away,

Leaves and petals flowing with the breeze,

And in the vast field as I lay,

The vastness of the sky makes me look so tiny,

And when I try to get up and look ahead,

I only see a road far far away..


If only, I could have the strength to walk through it all,

If only, I could have the strength to stand by the tide,

The moments would have been easier if only I had some support..

If only, I could sail smoothly through this rough and bumpy ride..


Why do things seem complicated when they never are,

The problems may count to be many, but so are the stars,

That doesn’t mean the sky doesn’t look beautiful in the night,

You have the strength you never knew, just pull on with all your might.


All it needs is a final blow, to take you all the way,

Faith is the key to all the troubles.

The ride may be rough and the sky may be dark,

But the bright rays will surely come,

Till then lighten a candle, and continue the walk. 

Go for the kill

I have had enough of walking down the dark road,

for now, when I can see the light of hope,

I needn’t shut myself out from the world and cry,

Its time to shout out and stop the lies..

Oh yeah, I wanna live my life with hopes and desires,

the goal may be distant and far to go,

but its time to get up from the ground and show,

I may be weak at times & longer than I know,

but, once I get strong, the weakness starts looking shallow!


So, its time to stop groaning with pain of efforts,

and give the efforts one more push,

for the goal may be far and too far to work,

but at least now I want to face my fears

& face the tiger hidden in the bush.


The light of hope, though how dim, it may seem,

I have to hold it tight for that only does matter and will,

for, the strength I have gained and whatever I have now left..

Its time to stand up high & Go for the kill!


I don’t know, when I would sleep in peace the next time.

So, turn off the lights and set the music to low chime..

Let me face the calm moonlight..

While I sleep so sound and tight, tonight..


With life running at such a fast pace..

Where walking has no meaning unless you begin to race..

Where you drown and shout, but there is no one to wait..

Its justified, for you, why should anyone else be late?


With so much to think, 

And even more to do..

Let me sleep tonight,

For, after so many days, I have rested all through..

Keep the music soft, so only I can hear..

Life has grown so rough and so tough to bear..

So, I curl up in my bed, with pillows held near tight..

God, for once, just let me sleep in peace, tonight..


Not much I want, because tomorrow will be a same day, I know..

Without pain there is no gain, I dont need You to show..

But let me have this night by myself..

With nothing to think and nothing to have sorrow..


And, after so many days, I have felt this calm..

For, life has grown rough and lost its charm..

I will be fit and up and ready to go..

But let me sleep tonight with just dreams far away the window..


Switch off the lights,

And switch off them right….

Let me fade away where there is no pain and no plight..

For long I have waited to sleep in such peace..

Please let it be that, Tonight..
