Serenity

Just a few lines.

Peace, calm, serenity
So unlike life...
Just the sky
And the silent ripples.
Minutes just flow like sand through my fingers
Life floats away on the breeze...

Realisations

I realised something.
I am not the one who's drowning
I am not surrounded by darkness
I don't need a helping hand
I don't need warm brown eyes
I don't need the promises

I am somebody's helping hand
I'm somebody's warm brown eyes
I'm somebody's promise
I'm somebody's support
I'm someone's light at the end of the tunnel
I'm someone's silver lining

And that makes me happy.
To know that I finally mean something to someone
Even though it isn't much
I mean SOMETHING

It's not my place in the puzzle
And it's not my notes holding the symphony together
And it's not my colours making the picture

But its a place till I find a more permanent one
My notes are holding a tune together
And they are making someone's picture

It heartens me that I can be this person
This shoulder,
This support
It gives me hope that I can give someone hope
And it makes me happy that I can make someone happy

As I say goodbye today

I wrote this poem a long time back as a farewell poem for my friends. I meant to put it up when I wrote it but I just never got around to it. It's very normal but it says what I was thinking.

As I say goodbye today
I look back on all the happy times we have had
We shared a lot of laughs
I smile when I remember the goofiness
And all the silly jokes
I wonder if the distance will weaken
The bridges we have built between our hearts
So many fond memories...
The sleepovers we had
The movies we watched
All the gossip
The silly arguments
The secrets we shared.
I close my eyes
And I can still see all the places we used to go to
And all the time we used to waste
I flip through the pictures we took
And I realize that leaving
Is going to be very hard
Every picture
Every memory
Every bad joke
Every random thought
Is going to remain etched on my heart and mind..
I’m preparing to step out into the world
And I will miss the support
That I knew was always there
I will always remember the sound of your laughter
And hope that time and distance
Will not affect the beautiful friendship we shared...
I know that as I grow older
The pictures may fade
And so might the memories
But the love
Will never be erased,
Never diminish
And never disappear...
Goodbye dear friend..
And thank you for everything..
