You stand out among colleagues and cut a fine impression.
The kids are great at school, moving on with determination.
Your files are in place, the food is too!
The kids are learning guitar and some pottery too.
Week to week, month to month, you all are mostly busy;
I wonder if you ever get time to even look around for me.
I talk to the plants when I water. I talk to the walls when
The duster is my closest friend. And so is the sewing machine.
But I wish they could talk back, perhaps hug me sometime.
Wipe a tear or two – or just ask me if I am fine.
No, I am not complaining, not saying quit things for me
I have no one to share my heart with, that’s all I want you
In your swanky corner office, when your shirt is looking
I just want you to remember, that gentle hand was mine
When you take a break, and enjoy a hearty meal
My joy of cooking at 6am is all I want you to feel
You see I am ok, doing what I do
But a loving smile, and some warm words, is all I seek from
you. This poem made it to the Top 10 at the Creative
Online Poetry Competition organised by ‘The World Renewal', a prestigious
monthly publication of the Brahma Kumaris organisation. Yay!
Hamesha mere paas apni saheliyon se Ek odhni kam rahi Ek choodi kam rahi Bas dil mein khushi rahi
Phir ek din dil khaali ho gaya Ab bahut der ho gai daddy! Ab kya karoon? Kahaan jaaoon?
Yahaan meri jaan ki keemat nahin... Meri odhni ki keemat nahin, kuchh lal hai to paani hai Meri choodi ki keemat nahin, awaazein toofani hai Aapki pyaar bhari do baatein hain daddy, aur yaadein aani hain
Magar chhoti abhi nahin samjhegi Ho sakey to, usey ek choodi aur dila dena Himmat karna, apni awaaz utha lena Us ghar na byaahna chhoti ko Ke jinki niyat dil se khoti ho
Na keh dena daddy unko
Kahin chhoti bhi aise door na chali jaaye To jab tak zinda hai, kyun na dard se khaali ho jaaye?
