" Battle of emotions........."

Battle of emotions.........

Bunches of emotions
Thundering in the heart
Fresh memories
Some unspoken words
To be felt-unfelt

Sentiments flown apart
Caught in a tornado
Subtle yet strong
Holding on to love
Still the eternal truth

Ocean of expectation
Buried deep within
Locked with the secrets
Feign happiness seen
Buried deep within


Forever & for always.

" My Secret Garden.................."

My secret garden.............

When I'm in need of solace
My spirit seeks to find;
The door only I can open
That's hidden in my mind.

It leads me to a paradise,
A place of love and care;
Of butterflies and birds that sing,
Friendly creatures everywhere.

I can sit beneath a citrus tree
Where I eat the fruit of life.
Take a sip of lemon tea;
In this refuge from all strife.

I can smile at laughing children
As they chase the busy bees.
Feel the breeze upon my face;
See the swaying of the trees.

I can watch the flowing fountains;
Sparkling waters, crystal clear.
And view the distant mountains
In freedom from all fear

I can be myself forever,
Do things without a care.
For in my secret garden;
Love is everywhere.

" Let Bygones Be Bygones......."

Let bygones be bygones......

Life a meandering tale
Having gravel, sand and air
To live by all without frowns
Is the recipe to real life
There’s no room for despair
Only hopes do impair
By brooding over the pain
So shrug it off


pray for a better day
and a better way

" Keep Walking...................."

Keep Walking............

Here we stand together,
Dressed in our pain,
Covered with scars
From wounds we did not ask for
Or deserve.

So what now?

We can't go back and relive our lives.
We can't take back the innocence we lost
Or make the sadness we felt into happiness.

But we can go on from here,
So let us start.

Stretch out your hand to mine,
Close your eyes
And slowly let the pain slip away.
Let go of the sadness;
It belongs to yesterday,
And let's walk.

The earth is firm beneath our feet.
The sun is warm on our face.
God sees our struggle,
Smiles at our effort,
And sends us strength.

My friends,
we can't stay,
looking back,
Lest we falter.
We must face forward,
Eyes wide open,
And keep on walking.

Hold tight and don't let go;
You aren't walking alone,
And neither am I.

" Walking Alone..................."

Walking Alone.........

There were times when days just went by,

Lonely winds swept the earth dry,
Raging sun beamed with all its fury,
was walking alone tired and weary,

And then, you walked into my life,
I wondered why would you be so nice,
must be a dream that won't last long,
Never thought that I could be wrong,

Your simple smile and eyes so bright,
couldn't resist you with all my might,
slowly but surely our friendship grew,
you taught me things I never knew,

I achieved things, I thought I never can,
your words gave the healing touch,
whenever life seemed to be just too much,

Struggling and fighting I went on,
knowing its you I could depend on,
And then Suddenly like magic you were gone,
I was left all alone,
all my dreams shattered and torn,

I asked myself,
where did I go wrong,

Things were supposed to be that way I guess,

may you find happiness and joy, god bless,
For I would keep walking alone,
cherishing the sweet moments bygone...

" Dreams............"


The day seems good until you wake up.
The world seems welcoming until you enter it.
When the morning comes nothing seems good
the moment my eyes open and until they are shut
I feel like sleeping would be better, safer, and more peaceful.

But the moment my eyes are closed
dreams come and take me.
The dream of peace and happiness,
the warmth and love.

It may only last a moment
but it gives me strength
Strength for the day to come
No matter what it be,
a nightmare or a fantasy
It seems better then life.
Friends in my dreams never leave or change
Time never passes to fast or to slow
You are never forgotten or hated
Nothing seems better and you start to feel happy.

Then the sun comes up and your brought back,
back to the truth of the world.
The pain and sadness,
The hate and fear of life
washes over you
and you wish you wouldn't have open your eyes.
You want to fall back into your welcoming sleep
Where nothing goes wrong and you are always loved.

but now........

I dont' have dreams anymore
I have reality
I'm not asking much of this life
I'll be gone

" Let It Be......................."

Let it be.........

Real happiness does not come
from the fulfillment of every desire.

You can chase an endless chain of wishes and desires,
and still manage to be unhappy.

So how ......

and when does happiness come?
It comes, quite simply,
when you allow it.

Though your life may be filled
with challenges and difficulties,

still you can be genuinely happy.

Whether you are close
to reaching your goals,
or far away
or already beyond them,
real happiness is always close at hand.

The world and its culture may convince you

that you need this or that
in order to find happiness.

Yet in truth,

you need nothing other than
to let it be.

Instead of waiting
or longing
or searching
for a reason to be happy,
create for yourself a way to be happy.

Something as simple as a smile

can get you started,
and that's something you can do right now.

Let go of the notion
that you must grasp for
or struggle
to attain happiness,

and simply let it be.

That can instantly make all the difference in the world

" Listen To Your Heart...................."

Listen to your heart................

Those things you most desire
in life
are always surrounding you,
close at hand
They are there,
ready for you
to reach out and touch them,
ready for you to joyfully live them
But you cannot touch them
with your hands alone,
nor with your mind alone

You must also reach for
with your heart

Listen to your heart
pay heed to what it has to tell you
You know what it feels like to
what is right,
and you know
the feeling
of doing what is wrong

Choose to do what is right
Your heart knows that
what is right is best for you
You are most effective
when you
work toward the values
that are
truly important to you

You won't get very far by working against them
Your thoughts and actions matter
very much,
and yet they are driven
by something
even deeper

Every thought, every action is undertaken
by the person you truly are
You are smart and capable,
flexible and intelligent

Yet you are not just a machine

You are a person
who can love
and feel and hope and know joy
Keep your efforts in harmony
with what you feel in your heart,
and the results will be truly magnificent

" Thoughts...................."


Left with memories
Some old others new
Bad ones and few good too
Cherishing each moment
That life gave

Smiling faces
Crying thoughts
Sickness growing Deep within
Can’t catch up
Gone by moments
No changes to make
Only love to give

Could make it better
The thought exists
No regrets
No pain
Only tears

Thinking over long-gone days

" Be Strong.........................."

Be strong ..........

To be strong, remind yourself that you can be.
To be strong, remind yourself of why you choose to be.
To be strong, remind yourself of what your strength, focus
and discipline have already brought you.
To be strong, remind yourself that your commitment can be just
as powerful as any excuse or rationalization.

To be strong, have a well-understood purpose and a well-defined plan.
To be strong, be sincerely thankful for all that you have and for all that you are able to do.

To be strong, begin with your thoughts.
When your thoughts are of strength and of positive possibilities,
your actions will follow along.

Each day the world will send you all sorts of challenges,
difficulties, temptations and distractions.
Know that these things are surely coming your way,
and choose in advance to be strong.

As the ups and downs of life arrive, remind yourself
that you have chosen to be strong.
Then as each moment passes,
you'll naturally follow through on that choice.

" To err is human................"

To err is human................

I wish I were a doctor so talented
I could have saved lives of many and
wouldn’t have let anyone die in pain

I wish I were a scientist so intelligent
I would have invented an instrument
to save the world from all calamities

I wish I were an astronaut so daring
I would have definitely found
another earth for survival of mankind

I wish I were a magician so perfect
I would have turned all the sorrows
of the people into joy

I wish I were a judge so just
I would have punished only the guilty
and set free the innocent

But .........
I am just human who makes mistakes
So I should try to be a better human
and let Allah do his work

" I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings..............."

I know why the caged bird sings................

The free bird leaps
on the back of the win
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hillfor the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

" A Letter To Allah......................"

A Letter to Allah..........

my saviour my lord and my only God
the only hope, the only friend of mine
to thee I cry and ask forgiveness
day and night seeking mercy, praying blessings
in sajdah I humbly keep myself
reading the words of you
a comfort I achieve
unknown and untold are your bounties
bestowed with love and kindness onto me
you are my very true friend
being always there for me in my need
fulfilling my wishes and keeping my heart at ease
thou art my saviour and my partner for life
helping me through the difficulties of life
which I for sure know are tests on me
markings be just and fair by thee a teacher and a guide
to lead me to the straight path of righteousness and goodness
paradise a reward in return I dream to achieve

O Allah ..........
I love you more than anything
no one holds a place in my hearts premise
there isnt room for else where you reside
I have protected the gates of love with your power
and have sealed the doors with good endevours
holding every nook as a light from thee
enlightening my soul and heart with purity
of thee sweet smelling fragrance
my heart holds the scent of Allah
is contionuosly being poured from
the eyes that sees and mouth that speaks
in Allah ...........
I find rest and eternal peace

" Vanishing Love................."

Vanishing Love............

sans the memorie s of moment
spent in love
nothing remains,
dust to gain
within seconds
seasons change

fur coat - reminds of winter
broken mirror - of vanishing love

" The Beggar.........................."

The Beggar............

I am a beggar at my lord’s door
Repenting tears of quick relief
Sitting patiently I do cry and weep
Glorifying and thanking my lord

I am a beggar at my lord’s door
Pleading my sins be wiped off
Expecting paradise a sincere reward
For deeds righteous done with rightful ease

I am a beggar crying forgiveness at my lord’s door
the day my lord shall open the door
he shall find me at his doorstep
crying weeping and begging forgiveness

I am a beggar at my lord’s door
thanking and patiently waiting for the open door
for I be lucky to have my lord standing tall
and I shall weep away my guilt
holding his rope strong
there is none better than my lord
who responds the distressed’s call
saves his people from drowning
cures the sick and guides the lost

Yaa Rabb!

I am a beggar at your door
sitting patiently at your doorstep
pure hoping my cry to be heard by you
relieving me my pain and sufferings

Yaa Rabb!

I am a beggar at your door
you had guided me to this way
when I lost my home, I did astray
only to havefound you on my darkest day

Yaa Rabb!

I am but a beggar at your doorstep
pleading my sins be washed away
I am a beggar crying and profusely weeping at your pious doorstep
morning till evening

Yaa Rabb!

I am a beggar I crying at your door
hear my prayers true that i make unto you
accept my apologies and my guilts
cleaning away my heart of dirt and grit
leaving it shining as the water pure
or a mirror reflecting truth for sure

" I'm Not Asking Too Much..............................."

I'm not asking too much........

I long to watch you sleep
To feel the warmth of your breath upon my cheek
I dream of tracing the outline of your face with a gentle touch
Just to see your lips curl in a sudden smile...
I’m not asking too much...

I long for you to hold my hand
To feel your arms surround me in a hug
I dream of waking in your arms and sleeping two bodies as one
Just to see your eyes dance with laughter...
I’m not asking too much...

I long to be with you...

To land upon these distant shores
I dream of the day, we finally see each other face to face
Just knowing that this is meant to be...
I'm not asking too much...

" Unspoken Thoughts......................"

Unspoken Thoughts...................

Like the pearl in the seashell
Silence softly resides within my heart
Calmness as gentle as the smooth wave
Sound that creates music, of love
Stillness fetched through troubles
Like an untamed horse been tamed
The wild run over the field
Now mastered the art of walk

up straight,

The stealth of a dove,
leaving breathless
All been calm,

and words unspoken
