My Shining Pearl!!

In my jewel box of friendship, I like the most my sweet tiny pearl.. Not because it was bought for a great price Or because of the time I spent for finding it There are diamonds, gold, and precious stones.. Each of them I paid a fortune to attain.. They boast about their value and substance And their beauty never satisfies my eyes.. As I was one day, lazing in the sea shore I saw this pretty lil pearl of mine.. It was amazing, even safely inside its shells Irresistible was its glow, its splendor and beauty.. Though it lies at the bottom of my box… The very sight of it alone gives me immense bliss… It’s radiance is special, like the first gleam of sunshine Sparkling brilliantly as the time passes by.

Letter to my Dad..

Your words and advices which I gathered in a short period gave me the boldness to face all the resistance... I missed you on my wedding day..when I spelt wedding vows to my partner..tears were rolling when I realised that there is no one in this world to replace my father and when my marriage happened as if it was nobody's business... I miss you each and every day when people accuses me, points out my inefficiencies.. I realise better that there is no one to defend me and you are not there anymore in this world to comfort me... And now I miss you each and every moment...and I wonde

I am one among them..

I gazed and gazed at the sky, To get hold of bright twinkling stars, To give feast for my eyes, to admire their shine But I didn't find one, they were all covered by clouds And my eyes filled with tears, and heart with despair.. I was too immersed in my grief and pain Sorrowed by the lost and the missing Later when I grew weary and bowed my head... To my surprise I realized that "I am one among them"
