Diwali with a Difference :)

“The Festival of Lights” is all o’er

A joyful day for minds, hearts and souls

And people throng the temples, to offer

Prayers, resolving to take better roles

Most of them are rich, clad and clean

And eat dainty food and sweets with mirth

Whilst noisy crackers burst, their lights are seen

It seems to be a Happy Day on Earth !

But are there no hearts woe-filled, very sad?

Denied of laughter and smiles for days ...

Diwali marks the Triumph of Good over Bad

So let’s lend hands in our own ways

Doing things worthwhile

Because TRUE JOY is when you make someone SMILE

Happy Birthday To My Boss (whoz never ever bossy :) )

This day belongs to you Abhay
You're a person, whole-in-one
I'm elated to wish you health
Wealth, Joy and Fun :)

You've been celebrating for years
With decades still in store
Since friendship keeps one young; I'm sure
You're coming back for more

I never met a nicer guy
With great integrity
And when you're at work --- Well
It's quite a sight to see :)

You're a man
Who brims with energy
Understands how people work
And shows great loyalty

All looks Good, All looks nice !
Thanks for the time
Thanks for the care
May you get all
All that you gave
In folds and in multiples

From a new friend in the RF GANG
I hope you celebrate
Your birthday with a BANG :)

Monday must be the most horrible days
The reasons, its horrible, are horrible to say
But with that said, I'll try to explain
Why Monday must bring us oh so much pain

You see on Monday, you work with a frown
the full work week ahead has gotten you down
The weekend had come, and has passed
And like all weekends, it just didn't last

But Monday sure lasts, it lasts so long
You keep checking your watch to see what's wrong
But against your wishes, your watch is just fine
Against your wishes you cant speed up time

So you sit, wait and pretend to work
And dream of a boss that isn't a jerk :P
But then you wake up and almost cry
You wish and wish that the day would just die

But wait, just listen, don't worry my friend
For one thing is certain, all Mondays must end
Now that it's been said, I'll say it again
More Mondays will come and more Mondays will end :)

Pretending to WORK !!!

The art of pretending is tricky indeed,
It takes planning, luck, and lots of speed

Your boss comes by so you pick up the phone,
You talk to yourself in a professional tone

A quick click required to change the screen,
So music, chats and emails remain unseen

If you must nap you do it with style,
With hands on keyboard all the while

You train yourself to wake when needed
And if nobody notices, you know you’ve succeeded

But if you’re caught you’ve got excuses to spare
You were on break, or thinking, or adjusting your chair

Work is boring, that much we can agree
And pretending to work may just set you free

So pretend to work if you think that you can,
But make sure you’ve got yourself a backup plan

Always be ready to find your way out,
Because that’s what pretending is all about

The Pain - It's Sweet Dear

What has happened today ? - I'm acting strange;
Is this the effect of yesterday ?
What miracle in me is this change ?
What happened the day before today ?

I met you - Is that responsible for all this ?
I see you in every step I walk
From my eyes, never I want you to miss
With you, supposingly all alone, I talk

I close my eyes - you are in front of me
Open them - the world is just blank you see
What have you done with your magical charm ?
For my mind no more remains calm

What was the spell that you cast on me ?
For now, this today, I'm yearning to be
My ownself, my dear, my ownself
Never have I asked anyone for such stupid help !!!

I walk for a while and think of you
I stop there till it's hours a few
I read a while, I dream of you
"I'm with you", and this, not for moments a few

What have you done ? - Oh ! My Dear !
What have you done ?
I feel you are to me very near
And I think of nothing and none

I search for you on the path I go
I follow your footprints though there are a "No"
I write about you wherever it may be
This "The Prince of my Dreams" - There is he

Your divine face is imprinted on my heart
Which strikes my veins as a powerful dart
Blood starts oozing out in a happy hue
It says - "Oh Dear ! I Love You !!!"

Indelible Memories

I don't want to sleep tonight
I'm afraid the words you spoke to me would be forgotten
I try with all my might
To hold the quail and express how I felt with you, in written

Now, I know, no language can express the words of heart
No writing, the pain at times of departure
Though life goes on, as a speeding wagon or a lazy cart
The memories without you, leave my heart punctured

I wish I could say - "I wish you were with me now"
But its too late - almost midnight - a quarter past twelve
The words you spoke, the warmth of your hug, knock me with loads of love
Deep down into a dungeon of memories and leave me there grieving

The happiness that I'm lovable - special to someone
Is going bare - it has become uncared
For the pain that you are leaving me in moments none
Has caught up and stings me sharp, whose heal is a near impossible

The memories stay forever dear
They never perish or none can wipe them from my heart
You are the numero uno and though you are leaving me alone here
I'll be waiting for your comeback, with carts of love that could fill a mart

Again I say, no language can express the words of heart
No writing, the pain at times of departure
The only fact I know is that you'll leave and me, grieve

How much I wish you come back
Talk to me the way you had always done
Look at me, love me and care for me
For here, I remain, as a weeping willow tree

Someone Deep Down Your Heart

Zillion people around to make you feel happy
But you may not be happy with all of them

Because somewhere deep in your heart, you love someone so much
That with him, you strengthen yourself as an army of zillion

But, If bad fate follows you; you may not be the same one for him

This makes your castles come crashing down
And your dreams dissipate into clouds of mist-
Never seen and Never thought .........
