Happy Birthday to My Boss cum Friend :)

A little reminder to show that I care
A few thoughts in my mind, openly share
Where should I begin, before raindrops appear?
Has it already been another beautiful year?

A true friend
Tough to find
Someone who is always kind
Words of advice; freely share
Helping hand, always spare

Tougher to find
Someone always on my mind
Listens, cares, and understands
Hardships; mutually withstands

Toughest to find
Someone like you! Let me remind
Birthday greetings, from my heart
This celebration, we must start

Happy birthday, my precious friend
My love for you, I wish to extend
Experiences filled, with joy and laughter
Special memories, I shall recall after

From the beginning, you made me smile
Accepted me, without any trial
Never judged or jumped to conclusions
Exciting friendship; random infusions

I cannot ask, for anything more
So many things, I simply adore
Hope this birthday never ends
In our hearts, time transcends

Taxi Tale ...

All night long I roam these streets
Picking up drunks, sweethearts and freaks!
Night after night I am in my car
Rushing to a hospital or sitting and waiting in front of some bar
Night after night I am in my car
Hauling around strangers can really get bizarre!

Sometimes I’m bored, sometimes I’m scared,
Sometimes I’m listening to a heart being bared
But all night long I roam these streets
Looking for those drunks, sweethearts and freaks!

How I Mistake Mistakes ... And learn not to Mistake

I walk down the street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I fall in
I am lost... I am hopeless
It ain't my fault
It takes forever to find a way out

I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I pretend not to see it
I fall in again
I can't believe I'm in the same place
But it ain't my fault
It still takes long to get out

I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I see it's there
I still fall in... It's a habit
My eyes are open
I know where I am
It is my fault
I get out immediately

I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I walk around it

I walk down another street

Why must he hurt me?

Why must he break me?

Why does he want to depart?

Why does he turn my world apart?

When he told me he couldn’t love me

It just broke me inside

His rejection just put me aside

And now I’m stuck & I can’t decide

I’m drowning in my own pain

Where all I see is tears and wish to disappear

My only fear was losing him

And now it’s as clear as it seems

I’m catching teardrops in my hands

No one can feel my hurt or pain

I’m suffering in long depression

I have no one and no protection

This depression won’t end

I got to find a way out

My eyes are red from crying

My head hurts from trying

Dear God … I feel like dying

Lost in my conscience

Lost in my pain

It’s been too long now

Can’t take the pain

No more wishes

They don’t come true

I don’t believe in me and you

Love exists no more for me

I have lost the one I love

There’s no more to try to fix

Pent up emotions & questions … I have no answers to

Cause’ there’s nothing to do without you

But this is the final goodbye

Cause’ it’s been too long

And too much I’ve sobbed

Thoughtful Deeds Spreading Smiles

Erasers are the nicest things!

Of that there is no doubt ..

We write wrong words. A few quick swipes

And big mistakes fade out ...

And you’d find erasers

Of a very different kind

Extremely helpful, if you try

To bear these facts in mind

When you bump someone in a crowd

And almost knock her down

A soft "I'm sorry!" may bring smiles

And rub out that old frown

Apologies, invariably

Obliterate mistakes

And three small words, "I love you!"

Can erase the worst heartaches ...

Love you Mama & Papa :)

We never know
Or fully realize
How sweet and kind our parents are
How gentle and how wise

We simply take for granted
From day to passing day
Each sacrifice they make for us
In their own loving way

But then we grow and finally learn
The way that children do
How much their love has really meant
How thoughtful they've been too

And so this comes with all the thanks
You both deserve and more
For there aren't dearer parents
Than the ones this one's for

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

My Love .. Happy Birthday

I love you
From our adventures and trips
To those dances with hips

I love you
From teasing to laughter
To those sweet mischiefs right after

I love you
From movies in soft cotton
To those memories forgotten

I love you
From walks in the park
To those talks in the dark

I love you
From morning to night
To those scents of delight

I love you
From the depths of my heart
To those birthdays that start

I can say over and over again
Without prompting, without cue
You mean the world to me, my love
A very Happy Birthday to you :)

Friend in need is a friend indeed .. Oh really ??

As the sunlight slowly faded away
The city lights flickered on, one by one
Illuminating everything on the outside
And casting a shadow on the inside

As time slowly ticked past
The darkness inched closer and closer
Spreading its shadows across the land
My inner self comes alive

As much as I struggle and curl underneath the blanket
My fears come alive, and slowly engulf me from the inside
And tear up the mask that I so successfully put on during the day

Surrounded by many
Yet isolated and alone
I try to reach out to people
But succeed in grasping just empty air

Struggling to keep my sanity
I plunge myself into darkness
For its the only place to hide
To cope with all this
I give up and cry myself to sleep

It’s tiresome to want something you don’t have, and each morning
I wake with loneliness by my side, each day I walk with it’s presence
In my footsteps, each night it lies hand in hand with my insomnia

Perhaps I have become invisible !
Or have I become just an figment of imagination ?
They cried on my shoulders and I soaked up their tears
Asking for nothing in return, but when I needed someone
Where did they all go ?

Something creepy ...

Hate, anger, frustration
How does one survive ?
Confusion, distraught, depression
Why even be alive ?

Screaming, running, sobbing
Everyone is swarming
Yelling, crying, dying
Does someone really care ?

I sit alone now, all by
Myself with no one else
They've all left again for good
And I am once again alone

I only have friends when
They need a place to hide
Does that make them love me ?
"My basement's always open. . ."

I sit alone again and cry
For the friends I wish I had
But will never see
All I get are words, in threes

They speak to me softly
Worry in their faces
Do they care ? Or is
Their worry worthless ?

It hurts at the end
As we all know, but
After that we don't
Know how to go

But do we know
Where people go
After their loneliness
Has got to them

Why stay here where it's sad
When you can die happy
No longer alone
No longer afraid

A Birthday Gift from "HER" to "HIM"

It's a wonderful feeling
To have a boyfriend like you
So sensitive to the female ear
Yet so in tuned to the masculine one

I love you so much
I can't even explain
I can feel the touch
Of you in a picture frame

Because you mean so much to me
I celebrate your birth
Sharing time and space with you
Rings my bell for all it’s worth

Whenever your birthday rolls around
I contemplate once more
How happy I am that you were born
The thought makes my heart soar
I wish your birthdays happened more

It's all I could afford
I'm not maid of money
This is your reward
Because you are my honey

Dreams Unlimited !

My thoughts of you come frequently
They’re always filled with you and me

No matter what I see or when
It brings you back to mind again

I’d be sitting, reading a book
Or be out walking by a brook

No matter which path I took
I’d see dream images of how you look

Each day is filled with dreams of you
I hope that all these dreams come true
