City of the Future

 Standing on the terrace on a blissful night
I was waiting for my friend to arrive
As I gazed in the clear less night sky
I saw a light making its way towards me
And a broad smile sets on my face
As it came near I could see the headlights
Of the car flying swiftly towards me

The world has exceedingly advanced today
When the space on the land decreased
And the hunger to achieve in men increased
He conquered the sky within his limits
The people with money now rule the sky
While poor struggled to live on the land
Distance between rich and poor has only
Increased with the passing time

They parked momentarily on my terrace
And together we flew to the restaurant
There are air lanes and signals in the sky now
As I glanced above, I saw Mercedes and top brands flying
And not the moonlit night sky with twinkling stars
Peace is hard to find in this fast advancing life
 We soon approached the restaurant we planned to visit
An electronic man came to us for the valet parking

The services has been replaced today
By the walking gadgets in all fields
For their never making error capabilities
Robots have taken the human form
And are made perfect in every sense
One thing all they lack is a human heart
Which for years to come, human with his
Never satisfying ego will sooner or later achieve

We entered the restaurant and ordered the food
The food was perfect in taste and aroma
As machines have taken over the kitchens as well 
But it didn't feel the same
Cause it isn't made with love and care
People have learned to live with it now
After the party I soon returned to my luxurious house

Time has indeed changed a lot
People are more open to ideas and culture
But are far more closed to feelings
Everything is attainable in this materialistic world
But the value for things have gone for a toss
And this is the price we have to pay
For advancement in the domain
That were never suppose to be touched

Far we have come now and there is no turning back 
From where I stand today, past was a golden period
And what lies in future, is yet to be written
Young generation of today love the life they live
Only people who have seen the past know
What they are missing and that they will never know
World has changed for the better they say
And that has been and will be, always debatable...

Somewhere on this Earth

Somewhere on this earth
There will be our home
Around a peaceful and quiet place 
Waiting for us somewhere 
No matter how small
It will be our own place
We'd share the sky 
And share the sea 
I don't want much 
But a place to call ours
A place where
We would retire from the world
Into each other...

Her Eyes

Eyes are the window to her soul
A little peak inside them
Will tell you what her soul holds
Beautiful dark eyes
With a sparkle so bright

She is a beautiful woman
With a smile on her face and rage in her eyes
She dances gracefully like ocean waves
And walks by like a gentle breeze

Beautiful dark eyes
With a sparkle so bright
Is it the tear sparkling
Or the joy in her eyes
Whatever it is...her eyes house the real story.

My Wonderful Mother

Unconditional love, infinite patience 
Bound to forgive and never complain
No better place then sleeping in her arms
Nothing more comforting than her presence around

She is the star of my life
The roots of my upbringing 
The tree I always lean upon
A watchful eye over my shoulder

She is the one who taught me
To smile even in darkness
To believe in my dreams
To help people if I can

She is the superwoman of my life
Lovely mother of notorious three
She nurtured us with utmost love and care
Knowing we will fly once we have wings in the open sky

To live forever and always
A healthy wonderful life
Is what I wish for you my dear mother
Happy Mother's Day!
