You wished i was around..!


No matter how much the distance separates
And though our accord has surpassed the lease
Of all the times you wash your clothes alone
And end up putting in the washing powder less
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

I know you thought of time being wrong
You were more unsure than you could be strong
The better things in your life have taken a toll over me
But of all the times when you sit down tired
Walk towards the kitchen to make your coffee
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

Of all our pictures on facebook
When you would maintain the count of likes
Today when I am no more there in them
Though someone else is
While you hold her waist and get done a click
Something from those memories would hound
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

In the cold winter afternoon
When the blanket comes off
And the cold hits your bare feet
And you would lay there thinking I will envelope you
But while you lay alone, with a bare bosom
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

When you drive down home from work
And pick your phone to dial a number
There seems nobody you want to talk to
And with tsunamis in your eyes you struggle
Put the phone at bay and look at the watch
It reminds you of the times you said
“This promises a great day, so when with you
This is what I would put on”
Choked you look outside in thin air
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wished, I was around

Our favourite songs, our favourite movies
The places we would visit
The American chop suey
The Friends on star world
The in numerous pictures
Everything whenever you would try to shun
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

Today when you text and tell me things
Of how things are moving and how occupied things were
I hold back my tears and act all good
And show no sign of despair
I only keep praying for your success
No matter you aren’t there
I still hope against the hope
That the day things will settle
And you achieve by leaps and bounds
The toast that you raise to celebrate
Will seem garbled and half-done
I would like to believe & make peace
That you wish, I was around

  1. Everytime Around you Post Something, I Scramble Around In My Mind To Find Words That Would be suitable for such a brilliant thing, But there's nothing which i can say or Do Which Could Describe How Awesome it is. :')

  2. A reflex of images frickles across my eyes when I read your posts!
    They strike it right!
    I admire what and how you write but not the story it has been inspired from!
