For MA and PA...

Why have you spent so long understanding me?
My happiness, my sorrows and my soul you care to see?

Why have you been here everytime you I need?
To listen to my ramblings, to all my talk pay heed?

Why do you spend hours doing so many things?
That no matter how little, still to me joy brings?

Why do you put up with all my misgivings?
Patiently talk me through them and always be forgiving?

Why do you always whisper patient words?
Until all my foolish pride breaks and your voice is finally heard?

Why do you always cover me with your protecting hand?
And never leave me alone, a storm to withstand?

Why do you always see the good in my bad?
And always pull me out of guilt to make me feel glad?

Why do you always put everything aside?
Everytime I fall down and help me get back astride?

Why do you always encourage me on?
To see the road through when my courage is worn?

Why do you always throw me a rope?
When the whole world has given up all hope?

Of all these questions and then so many more,
If I ever sought answers, with you I shall find them for sure,
Cause you are always close to me the distance no matter how far,
And I would be incomplete without you, my dearest Ma and Pa!

aww .... thats so sweet...i thought guys would die before writing something so touching and nice about their parents ... but then i am going in the sexist direction ...
no coming back ... its really sweet.... you are the only person in this world who seems to find rhyming words for everything .... once i tried writing a rhyming poem i ended up with sat and bat and cat ....
and well obviously i am back to old writing style ..... lol ....

to bluebutterfly:> ahh...then again i aint the average guy you know...
love my parents a lot and hold them really close to my heart...have written plenty of poems for them earlier too but then they are more specific and personal so i just hand it in for them to read... this one just felt more generally applicable to everyone so i put it up... i bet i know atleast six of 'em guys who have copied it to their folks.
and yeah, oddly i do seem to find a rhyme for everything... ill put up the story behind how i ended up with that too but thats for another day!


rahul:> my dear dear dear friend! dunno why i am writing so many poems man, i think its because i seem to have touched a raw romantic nerve somewhere deep within with absolutely no love in sight! (but yeah, a lot of it in hindsight!)
there will be more articles my friend, very soon... there is a lotta stuff i wanna talk about that i keep brushing under the mat for fear of sounding crude but not for long, i am refining my views and you shall read a few good ones...
in pune after a long time... feels good...
snehals coming after you are leaving i hear...hmmm... would have been fun to meet up together again...
waiting for you to get back man...
and thank you for the comment...
