Amazing people who make me go on n on n on:)

You!


A harried morning and a rude awakening...
The skirmish with cold, biting wind,
The empty coffee-jar manifesting my hollowness...
Even biscuits turning away to go soggy,
The water not running n the head still groggy,
The dependent baby wailing
And the dust laden railings
All needing attention urgently
All glaring demandingly...
And in between it all...
YOU!

Work deadlines bulldozing the rising waves of living
The clock scampering too fast,
The same drab clothes in the wardrobe
The glum n lumpy almost synonymous bag!
The mirror telling me to stop and breathe,
Invisible reflections of better days appear mockingly.
A wry smile n worried lines few,
The eyebrow not done, n a shampoo over due...
N yet after this all...
YOU!

The world pointing fingers
Expectations turning to dust,
Self introspection getting nastier
And games of people dirtier,
When one wonders at the sagacity of it all...
Wonders what one did wrong.
Futile searches numbing the senses
When the all pervading fake gets nauseating,
A million questions, a zillion confusions,
And only rising in it all
YOU!

When faith becomes just a word,
When perseverance a test
When laughter an illusion
When emotions get meshed
When I analyse should I go on or just give up?

YOU rise from among the ashes, with zest you ooze
Like a Phoenix raising its engulfing wings to soothe!

You grip my hand firmly just when I am about to gaffe,
You wipe that tear just when it is about to blur my vision.
You tell me it will be okay, when you know it is beyond repair
You show me the ways of hope when I languish in despair.
You hold me tight, you treat me right, you teach me to fight.
You give me smiles, just when I am about to lose them to the infinite.
You guide n lecture...worse than a parson, cause you get me so convinced
You make me realize time n again
That my life is worthwhile...

YOU MAKE MY LIFE WORTHWHILE!

you're lucky to have the "you" you talk about :)

Cinderella said...

I love this. I totally love this. Especially the last stanza. So succinctly encapsulates it all!

suruchi said...

Hi Mehreen,
You are missed...but then I understand what being "busy" is myself...
I hardly get time to read all my favourite bloggers like I used to earlier...
N I so miss it...
Well..life's like that...
N hence the significance of the "YOU" that I hope everyone gets in their life...
N so would you:-)

Thanks for taking out the time:-)

suruchi said...

Hey Cin,
When I wrote this n went through it again before clicking on the publish button, for a moment I thought I was reading you...
The kind of weaving of words that have come about here...reminded me of your style...

Am I emulating or getting influenced?
Hardly matters...
As long as the original is as wonderful as you to go by:-)
Hugs:-)

Bikramjit said...

Excellent poem and i am sure the peom for the YOU will be highly impressed by this

for once i have nothign to say other than adore the poem and say well done

nice one

Mr. "Niraj" Lemon said...

Awesome...the words in the poems describe why two people in love become "WE" coz "You" always support "I". It helps to sail through the patchy sea of distress in our life...

Sakshi said...

Lovely! SU! :)
Totally reflecting the minds of many.. and it really touches the heart! And the heart strings!

Miss you & hugs!

suruchi said...

Thanks Biky,
N you are so cute when you say “for once I have nothing to say”
Reminds me so much of me...coz it used to be rare when I expressed myself in brief...although now Seeya’s turned that table:-)

My “you” would probably not read this n read this n say ‘kyon makkhan laga rahe ho?”
So would save this to show to him on a special day:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Niraj,
So very aptly put by you...
You n I make “we”
N we makes the world a little more bearable:-)
Great to see u looking super cool in the dp...
Send me that friends request again..asap:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Sakshi,
I guess it is a universal phenomenon...
Sufferings of hum drum n the escape from it that love provides
N hence it touched us...
We all struggle for peace n constancy of joy but in the absence of it wither in gradual degrees...
So glad that you have your “you” too...
Who makes you realize that ‘this too shall pass’
:-)
Hugs n love

suruchi said...

Hi Prith,
Thank you so much...
It kinda resonates the love you splashed on board through your last post,eh?
And saying that it is one of the best posts that you’ve read makes me go yiy yiy yiy big time:-)

suruchi said...

Hi A, Moonlite n Kayla,
Thank you...I am proud of ‘You’ too:-)
You all made me smile at having made a poetic attempt after so long:-)

Miles Of Style said...

tanvii.com said...

How sweet Su! :) This is the reason why people get in relationship to start with ... to make life worthwhile for each other. So glad that you have "YOU" and 'YOU" has "SU" ;) I love the last stanza the most ... Beautiful Beautiful Words! :)

Mr. "Niraj" Lemon said...

20 York Street said...

That is beautifully written, wow, thank you for sharing!

Yes, I must agree. Based on all that, YOU are worthwhile!

xox

Madhu said...

wow..su! whom are we referring to err 'you' here..:???

suruchi said...

Hi Persis,
Thanks for the wishes.
You know I always wish loads of joys for you too...
A wonderful person like you deserves the best...
N the “You” includes a whole lot of people in my life family n friends who bring back the sunshine:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Tanvi,
Thanks baby.
When it is said that man is a social animal...nothing could be further from the truth...
I would completely crumble without love...without hugs...without the reassurance everyday that I am needed.
We all must have the “you” to be “me”:-)

suruchi said...

Hi Niraj,
I had deleted that request by mistake.
Plssssssssss oblige again n I can’t seem to be able to search you now:-)
Sorryyyyyyyyy!
Thankssssssssssss!:-)

suruchi said...

Ria...what yaar!
You write a hundred wonderful things on your blog...
And mere waale poem use kar lena na yaar for your special someone...
But walk the aisle first...
Abhi it will take a whole lot of time for the first two paragraphs to work their way into your life;-)

suruchi said...

Hi Aparana,
Thank you...
I am glad too...
We do need a ‘you’ n agar seedhe ungli se na mile to ungli tedhe kar ke pa lena chahiye;-)

suruchi said...

Hey Hitomineko,
Thank you

suruchi said...

Hi 20 York Street,
Wow..you made me worth the you...
Now that makes you a worthwhile reader for keeps...
Hope to see you around:-)

suruchi said...

Hey Mady,
Shhhhhhh...parde mein rehne do..parda na uthao..
Parda jo uth gaya to us mein se mere G he niklenge or mera exotic sapna toot jaayega;-)

Gaurav said...
