Suppressing the sinking feeling 
My aimless attempts to distract my mind
I sadly wish that time spent with you
are not moments that I leave behind..

My realization grows stronger yet,
Minus you, my life grows dreary and blue
The void in my fragile heart
Grows larger without you

Come home soon, my love
My patched heart wont hold for long
Come home and fill this emptiness
Make my pining heart strong.

My mind wrestles with my heart
Berates me for crumbling down.
Tells me I am alone the crutch I need,
So walk your path without a frown.

I'll make do my best when you're not here
Play hard, dance, and sport a grin.
But I know, it'll still be just making do
With you, my heart smiles fully from within.

Beautiful solitude

Beautiful, beautiful solitude
With your waves so pretty.
Gently rocking my soul.
Steering me across my sea of calm.

Your sun sparkles on my skin
My hair dances to your breeze.
I feel awake; I feel alive
I'm enveloped in your lingering charm.

Your soft sands tease my feet.
They draw me to paths unexplored.
Swaying towards dreams I'd left behind
My timid heart has forgotten her fears of harm.

Beautiful and strong solitude.
With your smile so pretty.
Guide me to swim through the turbulence around.
For my wounded courage, be my balm.

Happiness: That elusive nymph

I oft wonder, What does true happiness mean to me?
It's a funny question, isn't it? Simple, but profound.
What would make one truly happy?

That's easy. I know the answer to that one.

A loving family, a dream career, a world tour, a doting partner.. a multitude of answers popped in my mind. Were these really the answers?

Would that unbounded joy linger forever after I got what I wished for?
Is happiness a stage of life indeed?

I thought hard and long. All my yearnings that once seemed like the source of sustained bliss, just did not seem adequate anymore.

Till I realized what I was looking for. It was not a destination or a check list.
It was about not limiting myself by having either.

What I truly want is a continuous joyous ride of learning through new experiences. The barrier is stagnation.

The moment I envelop myself with nothing but routine, it would slowly kill my passion for life. It's not life-changing experiences that I desire. All I want is the elation while I indulge myself in a new book, examine an unexplored school of thought, discover new forms of creativity..the vista of possible adventures is infinite.

After all, an excited person is a happy person.

Letting Go

It takes only a blink of an eye,
To watch your life pass you by.
Although, it might take a while,
You'd learn to smile.
And Embrace the changes in your life
Moments of delight, struggle and strife.

It's hard to let go,
What was once yours to hold.
Lost and confused, you question.
Is change really a good thing to happen?
Leaving behind a world you understood
Where you knew what you should do and what you could.

I've no answers but I've hope.
That Life wouldn't push me down without a safety rope.
To cling onto and climb up once more
And lead me to places I've never been before.

After all, to let in something new
I've got to let go of something too
With cherished memories still by my side,
I await new dreams to come true.
