Been long since the butterfly had fluttered my way
In a little cocoon she seemed to lay hidden away
But at long last I spotted her today
By a small garden, in the middle of day

Still as graceful as I remembered the butterfly to be
Still a picture of unfettered beauty
I sat near and smiled with unabashed glee
That stemmed from the benefit of such jocund company

A bitter sweet nectar we feasted upon
As the mist of conversation was switched on
Reminiscing flights in times bygone
Dreaming of those we’ll make in tomorrow’s beautiful dawn

And the moments piled as hours passed by
Life’s turbulence that the afternoon did belie
Yet soon enough reality and evening drew nigh
As I stood and watched her flit away again, that flittering, fluttering butterfly

No weariness in these eyes yet
Though the clock says its almost dawn
A formidable foe I seem to have met
For these lips let pass not even a stray yawn

Have spent hours sleepless in bed
Thoughts running within in scores
Wish I could show you what runs in my head
Maybe you could help me soothe some sores

I've tried to blank my mind to sleep
But tonight theres too much noise inside
Too many doubts rooted far too deep
From them theres no place left to hide

No one to sing me a lullaby
Nor to cozily cuddle to
Tossing and turning all night I lie
And my misery I share with you...

A Very Interesting Weekend

My best friends will soon be married! And I get to be a part of their story forever!
For starters though, Sarthak (name unchanged) is a clot. After dating for 7 odd years, he finally was gonna introduce his better half to his folks. Although, Sarthak being Sarthak, this couldn't be just the regular awkwardest moment in life for the girl, no. It had to be the weirdest day in life for her. I bet she ought to have known right? He is her choice after all!
Sarthak, was in Delhi, his parents and his soon to be fiance, were in Pune. Nice huh? So what does he do? He asks me to accompany her to make it a little less awkward for her! Sigh...the things I do for my friends!
Nonetheless, it was a pleasant evening with Sarthak's parents, grandparents, uncle, aunt, his cousins and the future Mrs. S! Was one of the most memorable evenings in my life, one that I'll be telling not just my kids and grandkids but the S's kids and grandkids! After all, isn't that what friends are for?

My Favourite Lines By Me

For all those times we thought we’d be together forever

That we won’t have to say our good-byes, ever

We forgot that nothing ever remains the same

And people leave for the same reasons they came

Now things have happened

And times have changed

And we’ve learnt to look upon life

Like nothings strange…
