The Storm

The Storm 
The clouds may gather up,
The light may get dim.Do not lose heart, O friend.
The Sun is still out there ...

You may not be super pretty ...
May not hold panache ...
Does not mean a thing.
You are not any less.
You are a true monarch ...
In your own domain.

X-mas Rose

X-Mas Rose
Standing between two ends ...
Witnessing the change ...
It spreads joys around ...
Aging Winter says good bye ...
Spring hugs and says hi.

Best Friend

My dear best friend ...
I may not see you for years ...
I may not write to you for months ...
I may not call you everyday ...
Let me tell you this one thing.
I think to you in my thoughts.
In my walks and in my talks.
You are never gone away.
We are never, ever apart.
You are my dearest friend.
You live deep in my heart.
