Rich at heart!

A humble banker was he,
With no big dreams or goal,
But to run his small family,
That totally depended on him!

He was too straightforward,
Decent was his monthly pay,
Yet couldn’t live at peace,
As not each day is the same.

When his wallet was empty,
His goal was just to keep it full,
So that his family doesn’t suffer,
A rich man at heart was he!

Masha and the Bear

Bear! Bear! Where are you?
Called my son and I replied,
“Yes, Masha” with a smile,
Let’s play hide and seek!

He hid under the bed,
His feet clearly visible out,
I acted finding him nowhere,
Giggling, out came my son.

Oh, Bear! I won the game,
Yes! I said to cheer him,
My cutie pie is a pure soul,
A precious piece of gem!

The proud peacock

She thought he liked only her,
But he liked not her soul,
That longed to be his side,
Left her for another, a cool one!

She waited for him for ages,
That passed like passing clouds,
He did come one day to find her,
And called her stupid!

He walked away shaking his head,
Feeling nothing for her, but pity,
As he moved on long back,
A practical man with dreams!

My Wings

Never thought I would spread,
My wings that never dared,
To see the world from above,
A nightmare to take off!

My wings were heavy to lift,
I often had panic attacks,
That inhibited me to explore,
And look at the real world.

But when I ignored my fear,
Came out of the dark, I found,
The light that guided me to fly,
High above the clouds in awe!

Gifted is the one born rich,
Blessed are the others with grit,
Godly are the helping hands,
That feed the starving poor!

It’s a pleasure to see the smile,
Of the one on the receiving end,
For even small gifts are big,
That kindles love and affection.

The receivers become humble,
And become a part of us,
Giving no choice but to love,
Give more till they say no more!

Fly away

Since a few decades, I see,
A couple not the same but,
Different pair that chirp,
Happily speaking in joy!

I see one guard the nest,
May take turns, never knew,
As both are green and same,
Cute little pair are they!

Calm they dwell in the hole,
Hate any noise or attention,
Hard to capture in my mobile,
As they fly away to snub me!

You dirty Liar!

I luckily discovered you at college,

You would make me happy often,

With those romantic thoughts,

Promises that kept me dreaming.

You were every girl’s desire,

A charmer with a glossy outlook,

Filled with romance and elegance,

I filled my empty head with passion.

When I faced the reality, was shocked,

Disappointed, hated as I saw none,

That you said in each line, true lies,

You, Mills and Boon, I hate you!
