No Fool

They say;
"Behind every good man, 
is a great woman."

But, I must digress. 

I mean, I should probably confess. 

I guess,
what I'm tryin' to profess, 
is that - I wholeheartedly disagree.

I have to take a stand. 
If it's "love" that's in demand, 
then I'ma speak out - candidly. 

Now, I can't speak for every man. 
We're not all the same. 
Contrary to what most believe.

I let them do them,
'n you do you,
while I do lil' ol' me. 
(all six foot three)

With all that said..

Behind every good man, 
with a chivalrous plan, 
I believe should be; 

The shadow - of said Man..
proudly holding the hand
of a beautiful silhouette
standin' side by side - equally. 

By my side - is where she should be. 

Not ahead. 
Never behind. 

Until I'm dead
that's where you'll find
my better half. 

The one that makes me laugh. 
Laugh so hard - I cry. 

The one, around whom, I can act like myself..
'n noone else..
'n neva have to try..
t'be like ANY other guy. 

'cause she loves me - for ME. 

Now, THAT'S a "ride, or die".

That's the whole reason why,
I asked her to be - my Wife. 

She's the love - of my life. 

I know. 
I know. 

The word LOVE has become so cliché, 
'n there's only so many words
that we can use - to describe it. 

..and here I am, 
NOTE II - in hand, 
tryin' to find a witty way - to contrive it.

If our love is a drug, 
I've become so above 'n beyond addicted,
that I'd beg a Dr - to continuously prescribe it. 

Not that you'll ever need to be reminded. 

You already know, 
when you need unconditional love, 
right where you can find it.

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

This is me

My knees were the things that

My Puppy

     My Puppy

Day one: 
Haiku: always together // here puppy where are you boy // see her all alone

Always together                                                                 
What went wrong?                                                               
Fighting for the pillow made of a feather                            
What went wrong?
Cuddled under cold weather                                           
What went wrong?
Biting on one another                                                                
You two always belong                                                           
Playing with your brother                                     
Barking to any song
Running around your dear mother
She felt something is wrong

Day two: 
Haiku: Over his body // sad to see you went away // blood on car fender.

Today I see my pup alone
Where can you be?
I can sadly hear her moan
Where can you be?
Not stepping out of her zone
Where can you be?
Missing you, my puppy began to roam
My pup can finally see
You have left her alone
Letting out a howl, she is calling me
I ran out of my home
To see, my pup cry a tune so sadly
A pair, you left her alone
For her, I feel so badly
Now she has no one to take her bone
A bowl you to always share
A love for each other so rare
Both came with brown coat medium shaggy hair
I never knew a dog can deeply care
Who said life for a dog is fair?
Sad to know my pup knew she lost her pair.

Day three: 
Haiku: Digging up a hole // my puppy smelled terrible  // rest in peace, dad dig.

((I added a special 3-day haiku when my pup was missing ))

First and Last Kiss

Atop the road by the sea
Thou confessed thy affection for me
By a kiss as thy language of love
Ebbed from the copious desire thou have

A kiss from thee, my first love,
Something at last I have
My first love; my first kiss
I didn’t expect I’ll miss

‘Twas a kiss of farewell
For my love will depart and travel
Didn’t know when we’ll meet again
But I’m hoping it’ll happen

Though it’s heartbreaking,
I have to accept the pain I’m feeling.
The first and last kiss we had
Is the first and last kiss we’ll have?

She is not my real sister
Nor found her on twitter.
She met me in an institution 
And got an intuition 
She taught me English 
Which i never relish.
After some days she started teaching me sociology
Since she then became my ideology
In the meantime we became good friends 
Then she was both my start and end.
I called her sister
Became happy and showed blister.
Like this our relation stretched 
For relations there no occasion or trend.
Now people know her as my adopted mother
And i don't care of mindset of other
I love her the most 
And have faith utmost.
She slaps me on my mistake
and she is the who bakes me a cake.
I share all my grief
She handle it softly and treat.
She is an advocate by profession 
And lives in a tashan.
She keep slapping guys
So no guy ever try 
She is the best human i met
In my life,i have her threat.
I fight 
Then hug her tight.
I love u vaishali sista 
Please Please find some Mr.
Find some handsome man. 
of whom i can become a fan....
your child cum sista ... i love u di .

                             The Apple PASTURE

Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture.
Were once was and all well meet.
A pure and dear site.
Where silver reflection cover the still waters that holds the golden
grains of morality and the grazing souls lie young amounce no stars.
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture
Were winds smell of melon and the trees whisper spring corals in the mellow dark and best of light and time creeps into no tomorrow.

Protect You From The Storm

Baby I know
Before I came into ya life...
You've been through hell,
Well together we're gonna reach heaven.
Baby I know
You cried at night
Hoping that somebody
Could wipe away your tears.
I know you wished that somebody could make your pain go away.
Well im here now
And I'll soak up all
Your tears
Into my heart
and I'll eat your pain.
I'll devour your sadness.. 
And replace it with joy.
Baby I know
that you've been
Heart broken
And your mind
Couldn't face
the emotions that 
You were feeling
Therefore you couldn't control it.
You don't want to be tampered with
You don't want to be played with.
You don't want to be left broken. 
You just want those lovely kisses upon ya heart
And the love you deserve...
And im a sacred
Type of guy,
A man whose down to earth. 
I'll just hold you in my arms
Whenever your hurt
And if its raining
I won't push you to the curb..
I'll just welcome
You home
And protect you from the storm
. If you're ever feeling
Cold.. I'll put you in my heart
Cause that's the only place u love
And its a place that is warm.
Im your knight
And shining armor
I'll protect you from
The storm.

''What is a Son''

                              What is a son to a father
                           But youth and strength as no other
                        That props the sagging failing man
                               With vital energetic hand
                          That makes him glad within the heart
                              To know that these are a part
                         Flesh and bone that came from me
                            And love excelled by none but he
                           Who made us all to live and love

                            A GIFT DIVINE from GOD above

I've seen my shadow in your eyes,
I've seen my double in you all,
I've seen it slow how it dies,
Rehearsing like an actor changing role [s],
Your bluebell shiny sight is attractive,
Your spring-like smile is a call,
Your flashy blink is very active,
When animating your beauty...mole,
Your brown hair is really matching,
Your baby face..Like a doll,
Your longer neck is also catching, 
With your crystal front and the poll.

And They Cry

She left home 
Leaving calculus of tears
Encrusted under the eyes of her children

She left home in blade of sorrows 
Leaving her children in suspense
But participated in a ghost congress
Our souls were left like aw in the skies
Pending cries under the eyes of I

Home was left devastated
And the sun deviated from the east
She left home like ember
And silence curls up in her lap…

My son

My son josh, my first born, my blue eyed boy,
My son josh, where have the years gone?
Only yesterday , I held your soft, smooth face upon my cheek,
You were laughing, watching cartoons, playing with toys, 
Getting dirty only like any other normal little boy...

My son josh, we would go out together, you snuggled upon my chest, to keep you safe, 
A proud new mom, to show you off to everyone, my pride and joy,
Holding back the tears, first day of school, a piece of my heart leaves, 
I watched so vilagitly waiting for your return, I know I must let go...

My son Josh, a young handsome man you have become,
Girls, work, school, life, a now big part of your life,
You have been an awesome big brother, did I tell you that?
Very soon, you will turn eighteen, a legal adult, no turning back,
My heart is now full of love, so proud of what you have accomplished..

My son Josh,  please know that You will always be my first born, my baby boy,
My heart, you are becoming a man, I wish you all the very best, I couldn't be more proud,
I know must let go, but Know you are forever in my heart...

Loner's First Wish

I weaved us together by day
In my lonely room, marveled
At your features, your Pa's sole present,
Memorized the curve of tulips,
Unraveled your bold walk
Having accepted the unfamiliar,
I kept watch
For proof of our union.

Today I exhale as I view
Your perfect face, straight
Unpretentious; your sharpness
Moves me--that fingerprint
Only a parent can read.
I ease now beside you, grateful
And patient, to dip us,
With even breath
In time's clear ink.

Learning as we go

You're growing up so fast these days, 
when will it ever stop? 
I still remember your first day home, 
Lil blue eyes and your golden locks. 
You held my finger, with your whole hand, 
So tiny you were in my arms 
And right then and there, I stood and I swore, 
To keep you from any and all harm. 
Though that's impossible, I hear you say, 
It doesn't keep me from trying. 
I would take on and endure any pain, 
Just to keep you from crying. 
You'll never know the full and complete 
Hold you have on my heart, it's God plan, 
he has blessed us together, 
Knowing one day he will take us apart. 
So bare with me baby girl, I'm not any pro 
I wasn't born a mother, like being a daughter, 
We must learn as we go. 
So slow down and enjoy this time, 
God gave to you and me 
I'll always try to steer you clear, 
And aim your pain at me. 
But sadly enough there will be days, 
When you must carry your own, 
But never think I am not there, 
It's just part of learning as we go. 
I love you baby girl, and rather 
Or not you yet to see, 
All my advice is filled with love, 
Only trying to steer you free.

      How can a bird fly when its wing is broken
      How can a game play without a token 
      It hurts not bee free to fly or play
      sometimes it hurts when that stupid rock is in the way 

     It hurts when you louse a love one 
     all you ask yourself is what have i done 
     you cry and cry and cry 
     It hurts so much that you try 

   It hurts to see your little one grow up so fast 
   all you do is wish that those days would last
   it hurts to say good bye to your little ones
   it hurts to say good by to your love ones too. 
   so don't think of this as good-bye
    think of it as see you later.

My Dog

I lost a precious associate, 
my dog Bumfuzzle,
no one left to teach me unconditional love,
and there is no one to bark.	
I've known you since you,
were just a patchy little puppy,
I watched you grow into, 
a good-looking bow-wow friend. 
I'll always think of you,
I'll keep your memory alive,
the painful memories,
that has left an ache in my heart.	

But now it’s over, 
you're gone forever,
all I have is your picture in a frame,
on my wall as remembrance.

Unprecedented her beauty

best friend

i look up to the sky
from a far i hear a voice cry 
people saying we don't want you here
your pain and anger all build up into fear
i look upon your face i see your tear

People walking and laughing
you sitting and barfing
when i look at your face 
i know i have to set the pace 
to become your best friend
to be with you beyond the end

to tarry within time
and bless your each rhyme
to hold your hand
to walk you through our land

Our Children

The Children , are all 'Angels'
And they are loved by our 'God"
For the time will come to teach them ,
To teach them all" about his love "
They are innocent little children ,
And the future of tomorrow ,
So let's teach them, right from wrong '
Then they won't feel, pain and sorrow ,
They're the lawyer's of our country ,
Teacher's , Doctor's , and R.N"s
And the best lesson to teach them  ,
Is to be our greatest friend's .
Don't be cruel, and don't be spiteful ,
Cause they'll be learning from you ,
Show them how to care for other's ,
Teach them good things, they can do .
If your future is ' predetermined'
Hold their hands, so they feel safe ,
Teach them well, and be real kind ,
But most of all, don't let them hate .

To my lovely

I am under a spell.
Your love is sweeter than I could tell.
Your name rings a bell.
You are graceful like a gazelle.
Whenever you are in danger,
I will fight for you as a ranger,
Cos in my heart you are no stranger.
You have become my heart manager.
I'm familiar with your fragrance.
I noticed you in one glance.
Am lost in a trance.
Knowing you was not by chance.
We are made for one another.
We are a good mixture, we can lather.
I would leave my mother and father
And all my love to you I will render.
...I realy do love you.

Her love, her modesty, behold her grace
That shine let shine be on her face.

A friend, a enemy let ever be too, 
May her company to let me flew.

Her desires, her sacrifices are neglected, i think, 
That she was hiding her tears to blink.

Her beauty her modesty behold her grace, 
That shine let shine be on her face.

Her mummering, her talkings, her chinese gossips, 
Forced me to think about her twisted thinkings.

She was, she is, she will be unique, 
Smart one, dreamed one, thats on the peak.

Her beauty, her modesty behold her grace, 
That shine let shine be on her face, 
That shine let shine be on her face.

I love you beyond


You touched my heart with million desires
and broke it into million fragments.

Your words stimulated my consciousness, your eyes spoke to my nucleus,
and I lost my mind in the process.

You have stolen my heart, hijacked my mental state,
and driven me bizarre.

My love for you is like a foothill stream.
No matter how many twists and turns it may take, it flows pure from the top to the bottom.

You came like the night intruder.
Flourished in my heart like spray roses and bright up my life like sunrise.

I love you from the deepest part of my heart.
Whenever I am with you I feel the hotness and adoration that gives me power to carry on.

When I look deep into your mind and soul,
I saw beauty and mountains of happiness…………………………….

My heart is pounding as I say goodbye.
