Another Year has been passed
No Regrets in my heart
I turned a year older today
with choice of choosing another path

Sun Shines upon me
With the morning comes a new day
Once again that life is waiting
Full of actions and adventures on my way

A Lil older and mature
Some stays and some are gone
Still have no clue in my head
Where my life is taking me with each breath

The Path is unknown so am I
Filed with tears in my eyes
Its not that i am afraid
Just because I have no one to hate

Its a beginning of a new chapter
Confused and yes still scattered
What beholds the future
I leave that onto God
I know he will look after

Today i turned an year older
Now i have nothing to fear
Facing the challenges with more toughness
showing a side of a grown up with some silliness

Gazing at the stars
is still what i like
Age is nothing but a number
My time has come to strike

Being alone is not that kills me
The society that is so vulnerable
makes it hard to be at peace
We are what we want to be
Here to give an example of humanity
and let other lives to live with dignity.

I want to Love you and Need you
To be the suitor that suits you
I want to believe your fate is my fate
I want us bruised at the lip, fused at the hip
I want to be the drum roll in your rock n roll heart rate

Sweeter than the wine in your summer of '69
Steeper than the high from the Park in '95
I want to place my vote in your smile of hope
I want to be the firewall written into your code

I want to savour the flavour of your laughter & tears
I want to wear you, ensnare you, be beside you down the years
I want to serve and deserve you
Be diverted and immersed in you
To be your future with no frontiers

Forget being a tick box in your list of likes
I want be the contraband in your daily life
The thing you crave when you don't know what's next
The chocolate and the caffeine, the marshmallows and the ***

Every place I've been, every perfect summer's eve
You define what my longing means
Your eyes have become the perfect tease
No day will be complete I don't try to walk a mile in your feet
Or look before you leap, or try to meet your needs

This Declaration, Here, is how I've felt all down the years
Saying it now may be unnecessary but I want it to be clear
You are to me more than a philosophy, more than a constancy
In my life you ARE - An inevitable certainty
For my Wife's Birthday
If you were nineteen acts of my Broadway classic,

I would pause time to watch you make me proud,

And scribble poems on backstage passes,

On a different day, In a different crowd.


But When the notes are changing now,

On grand pianos of mice and men,

You’d still find me writing another verse,

On a different day, With a different pen.


Yet Beware the ides of march they say,

Even as they feast on your incredible smile,

But beyond the journeys of lost tenses

There will always remain another mile.
Happy Birthday Malls :')

Years ago......today was the day I died
****** it to this wicked world to survive

I don't no where I was before this life
But I'm sure it was sweeter than all this strife

Because on that day at the window seal sat the inky black Crow
To witness the birth of another dead soul

To witness the birth of another dead soul
A birthday poem i wrote for myself.

Cannot forget the day, January 19th,
Can still recall the pain,
Everything I dealt with,
But when I saw you smile I just melted
I love you so much my son,
You are my greatest wealth.

Four years passed and you're growing up
To be a great man,
Oh just like your Pop.
Though sometimes I just wanted
To hold you in my lap,
And whisper words like
"Honey, never grow up".

Another four years
And maybe you'll forget about this
Cake eaten, balloons popped, opened unwanted gifts,
No matter, I will always remind you this:
"I love you Hari"
And say it with a kiss.
