Have you ever ?

Have you ever lost your way?
Thinking about me every day
Have you ever thought of me?
Like i am the one who will set you free
Have you ever looked through my eyes?
Just to see what you mean to me
Have you ever looked at the world?
Like I to do when I am with you
Have you ever walked my path?
That leads only to be with you
Have you ever tried to feel?
What it feels being loved by you
Have you ever imagined my life?
And emptiness in it without you
Have you ever imagined someone loving you?
The way I love you now and forever
Have you ever felt right, doing wrong thing
Like I do just to be with you
Have you ever missed me like I do?
When you wave your hand to say good bye
Have you ever felt what my heart felt?
When your good bye was forever
And if you read these lines ever
You will know wanting something which was never yours
Always felt like a beautiful mistake

LOVE

You and I in this beautiful world
Are like ends and beginnings
For I am at the edge of a cliff
And you are at bottom of the sea
Falling apart and rising together 
We push pull drag every events of our life
Just to be with each other
Because all in me loves all of you
I be me when I am with you
Every pain feels comforting
Every beat of my heart feels precious
I can die for you but I want to live with you
As you hold my hand the grip gets tighter
As you look into my eyes its shines brighter
As you talk with me I hear only you
As you walk with me I no more care what’s ahead of me
As our souls were meant to unite
You are to me
What’s sky is to sea and what’s sun is to flower
With you I can survive and flourish
You love all my negatives and I love all your positives
For I like all your imperfections
You are the reason of my life
And I am the meaning of yours
I will give all of me to have a piece of you
As you are the only one for me
I wish I am the only one for you

BATTLE….

There is a constant battle
Between who I am and what I want to be
A tug of war between
being someone and wanting to be someone
Then there comes a doubt
I am not constant
I have evolved and I change continuously
With this thought there is a peace
But is this a blissful peace
Or a silence before storm
Am I what I am destined to be?
Or has my past made me who I am?
With this constantly changing me
There is a fear of being lost
Am I lost in transition
Or I am transforming into someone else
A battle where winner and looser is me
With every attack and defense
It’s me who is hurt
It’s a never ending phenomena
Of knowing oneself every moment
With every step forward
There is a doubt in my mind
Direction which I am heading
Will lead me to where I want to be
or will it lead me to where I am supposed to be
Life is all about who I am and what I can do
Not what I am supposed to be or do.

Purpose of being HERE and being YOU

Nothing is permanent, nor you and circumstances of life
And neither our emotions and relationships
It will change and it has to change not because it is destined
Because it follows the law of impermanence
We are made up of atoms and molecules 
Which die and reborn each fraction of second.
Still we hold on to the thought and attitude of
Me , My life , My things, My job, My money
But for real even your body isn’t yours.
Each day when you wake up, you are a new person
And a new day to look upon.
Make small improvements each day
Things which you hate or want to change
First step is to accept and embrace it 
Accept as your own and then thrive to change it
Because a grudge, anger, ego, disappointment and revenge
Will be like holding a burning coal in your hand ready to throw
But it’s only you who is getting burnt 
Try to live life not for past or future as they are event of life
Which either has ended or not even began
For the moment is now as you read this
As you breath in and out, as you blink your eyes
As you smile, as you smell, hear, watch and feel
Present is being you
Present is your purpose
