For Lehar

I lived once in a city that I could only look at with disdain
For all its messes, crowds and other such unbearable pain
And I met this girl that loved it to bits
Everywhere she looked, she saw sheer beauty and its wonderful spirit
I tried my best to show her its faults
But even in them, she would always show me the beautiful parts
Admittedly, I soon fell in love too
With Bombay and my dear friend, Patlu

A wonderful friend, right from the start
A strange girl, with a wonderful heart
She saw the good in me, even in all that was bad
The warmth of her smile, always left me feeling glad
A personality colored with a million different hues
Outspoken, headstrong and staunch about her views
About life and love, and a whole lotta issues
Love you for being ‘Cute n Confused’!


This one's been long overdue! Sorry Lehar, took me long enough!

Thank you guys! Lehar liked it too!
Had owed her one for a very long time and when she wrote an awesome review for the book on pothi.com, I was more than obliged!
She was also lucky (or so I assume!) that she had the poem as an autograph on the signed copy!
(Ok, now I'm just showing off na? :P )
Btw, I'd like to give a copy to the both of you too...do let me know if we can work something out!
