How I know I miss you ..........

How do I know I am missing you 

" Speaking to myself 
Laughing at nothing 
Repeatedly checking over my shoulder
Realizing that the wait is not over 

Cribbing along with heavy steps 
Silently wishing for you 
Repeatedly checking over my shoulder 
Realizing that the wait is not over

Waking up to see you smiling 
Dozing off as I speak to you 
Repeatedly calling out for you
Realizing that the wait is not over

Feeling alone in a crowd
Stuck staring at nothing 
Repeatedly calling out for you
Realizing that the wait is not over " 

Is this missing you ? 
May be ? May be not ? 
But the wait is still on 
Till I stop looking over my shoulder 
Till I stop calling out for you .

What I have learnt in your company

                               What I have learnt in your company

In the steps that you have walked with me
In the smiles that you have shared with me
In the sorrows that you have helped me with
In the pleasures that you have offered me with
I have learnt to love you better
I have learnt to make you smile
I have learnt to put us before me
For you have made us much more special than me

You are best the way you are

The time has come
For my every beat to ponder
For my every step to be measured
For you follow my steps
For I lead the way for us
My journey has long since become ours
My plans have long since become ours
Not because I am good at doing all these
But because we accept each other as our own
Luck may fail me
Friends may fail me
But I know for sure
That we shall not fail
For our hands bond in love
For our hands bond in trust
What more should I ask of you
Why should I ask more of you
You are perfect the way you are
I will love you the way you are

Lonely Strides In The Night

" When the shadows desert
In the death of the night
When only my heartbeat
Fills the night
I trace the paths
Long forgotten
Prodding over long lost thoughts
Searching my memoirs
But they are all masked
They are unclear
Not one thought makes sense
Not one memoir brings clarity
For they are obscured by a signature
Your name "

My walks alone

The more I walk ,
The more I think
The more I think
The more I remember
The more I remember
 The more I miss
The more I miss
 The more I realize
That my heart has long lost my trail
And is following your footsteps

What makes us special

You love me
I love you
You respect me
I respect you
But what makes us unique
what makes us special
What endears us to each other
What keeps us together
We love each other
for what we are
We love each other
for our good qualities
But more importantly
for our bad ones too
Appreciating each others flaws
Beaming at each others virtues
Taking pleasure in each others company
Setting an example to others
We hold each other
In an embrace of love
we hold each other
In an embrace that shall last forever

Why has the pen stopped moving

Seconds have rolled by into minutes
Minutes have rolled by into hours
Hours have rolled by into days
Days have rolled by into months
The nib has stopped scribbling
The ink has stopped flowing
The pen has stopped moving
The pages remain unfilled
Well , why not
I need not brood over anything
For I have you to take care of me
I will never feel alone
For you are always waiting for me
I will never need to fight alone
For your support adds to my strength
I will never need to ask anything more
For I have been gifted with you ....
