A Valentine Gift

Your appearance alone
Is a bona-fide Valentine gift

A Friend

A friend is one who stands to share
Your every touch of grief and care.
He comes by chance, but stays by choice;
Your praises he is quick to voice.

Life By Chance

Once, I was like no one else,
When I was a life with so much ease,
It was not just a little while;
Rather it was larger than 'life'.

On a hot, hot day, and I in pyjamas for the heat,
To drink there.

If you wake at midnight, and hear a horse's feet,
Don't go drawing back the blind, or looking in the street.

Watch the wall, my darling, while the Gentlemen go by!

Be You

The more opportunities you give someone,
To be disrespectful towards you,
The more chances are there to lose respect for your own self.
The more you depend on others for getting respect;

And lilies face the March-winds in full blow,
And humbler growths as moved with one desire
Put on, to welcome spring, their best attire,

Almost Lost My Love.

Its a pretty day today, I love days like these because the cold soothing wind that blows is a reminder of you being by my side no matter what comes. The clouds that shelter me from the sun remind me of how the thought of you keeps all the dark memories away. The slight rain feels like your kisses filled with love and compassion making me sure of good and kindness in this world
But today isn't a pretty day although it's like the ones i look forward to the most, but just like most things i ruined it.
The clouds are darker than i remember and the thougts they bring darker still.
The slight rain mirrors my eyes and no matter how much the clouds and I cry we cant wash my guilt away.

Sonnet 018: Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day?

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

I am the Empire in the last of its decline,
That sees the tall, fair-haired Barbarians pass,-the while
Composing indolent acrostics, in a style
Of gold, with languid sunshine dancing in each line.

With scarce a thought beyond the hum-drum round,
