Perfect Afternoon

I took a hot bath during this chilling day late in morning. It was 11:30 AM. Then I thought "What to do now,  being all alone and nothing else to do?" I thought of reading a novel. I starting reading it from where I had last left. Few moments later, I thought something is missing. I turned on the radio. The music was too loud. I wanted music that soothed my ears. I turned it off. I needed something to fill up that spot.

Ah! I have just the thing that will make this day perfect. I went straight to the kitchen and took out a bottle of Scotch. It was more than half full. I also pulled out a can of soft drink from the refrigerator to mix with it. I made my drink with utmost love. I took the glass and my book, took a seat in my giant sofa. I sat like Al Pacino in Godfather. I resumed reading, sipping the drink every five minutes. It was like I had been waiting for this to happen for a very long time.

An hour later, I decided to take a break. I looked around the living room. My big music system - turned off. My giant TV - switched off. And I, sitting alone with absolute silence surrounding me and the sunlight entering the living room just enough to light it up, my inner voice screamed with joy "This is what I call LIFE! Just the way I wanted it to be." 

It is celebration of Christmas for many others, but today is celebration of My Life. A drink, a good book, a giant cozy sofa and pin drop silence. Although the afternoon was short lived, I cherished every moment of it. I am looking forward to have such moments in days to come.

My Wandering Mind

It goes here
It goes there
It goes somewhere
I don't know where

It doesn't know what to do
So it wanders everywhere
If I tell it what to do
It ignores and runs away

It says - I wanna do this
I wanna do that
I say - this is what it is
And please stop at that

How time is flying by

It doesn't have a clue
I let this moment pass by
Without knowing what to do

Today, it retires

Tomorrow again, it wanders
To sneak everywhere
Only God knows where

Way to bring up my 50th post! Come join my happiness. Open Gangnam Style!

Your Presence

I start my day with a warm greeting from you
It ignites my zeal to make my boredom bid adieu
I long for you when I don't see you around
When this gloomy day is letting me down

I hardly know a thing about you
Yet I feel I know a lot about you
This eternal bond is built not in a day
But I feel we met only yesterday

I wonder why you are special to me
And how you never fail to make me smile
However hard the times may be
You make my heart dance with some style

The vibe you create is so magical
It takes me to a wonderland far away
The words you talk are so whimsical
The smile on my face never fades away

When your presence seizes my mind
It leaves all my annoying trifles far behind
Feeling the surge of joy inside me
I wonder if I ever have any misery

Why didn't I find you before?
Where have you been hiding all along?
You entered my life like an angel I yearned for
To keep me happily accompanied lifelong
