A decade is gone

Gone down in mist

Where eyes can’t see

And sound doesn’t exist

You’re asleep for centuries to last

Where everyone goes

Forever lost

(Sheen-August 2, 2022)

Today is the tenth anniversary of my husband’s death. The Mercy of Allah on him. Ameen.

The Test of Time

The love you bore me is no longer there

Anguish, abandonment, I can’t bear

I thought of it as resilient withstanding time, and space

What I didn’t know

It would fail the test for grace

It wasn’t the forever kind

The one wish I had in mind

Despair hits me from behind

Where did I go wrong

Still trying to understand

Is it me, or is it you

(Sheen, June 2021)

Having You

Dear, although at the moment we are away from each other, I’m looking forward to be with you for forever. How I longed for you, you just can’t imagine. I want to put my arms around you to hug you, but you are so big (haha). I know it’s impossible. My hands won’t be able to get around you. I want to hold you to myself, and tell you how I love you, dear heart. You have been neglected for so long, but you kept a stoic upper lip, and waited for me to come into your life to take care of you.

Love you. It was love at first sight. I promise I will always cherish you my lovely home to be ……..

Did I misled you dear readers? How was the surprise?



I want the people in my life to be there— always, and forever. I dislike changes.

The premonition comes in the form of a dream, or just a thought.

Worrying me what if it comes true?

I pray feverishly hoping…….

What Love Is

Love has definitions of its’ own, and love is many kinds of love.

Love is when you hold that person dear in your heart. You can’t think of life without that person in it. You break into cold sweat at the thought of that person taken away from you, and how you are going to exist?

Love is sublime when it’s reciprocal, and terrible when it isn’t.

Love isn’t great when respect for each other isn’t there.

Love is when you hear the oft repeated jokes all over again.

Love is forgiveness.

Love is scary when you don’t know what the other feels for you, or it isn’t at par with the love you have.

True love is what a mother feels for her child. It never changes, and is a forever kind of love.

Love was when I was mad at my (late) husband, and the minute he smiled at me, my (wretched) mouth would smile right back at him. I knew I didn’t want to. I wanted to stay mad at him, but in those moments my mouth would acquire a will of its’ own.

Love was when we had a fight, and I would tell him, “I don’t like you anymore”, and he would say, “but I still love you”.


I Want to Know What Love Is

We each have many types of love relationships — parents, children, spouses, friends. And they’re not always with people; you may love an animal, or a place. Is there a single idea or definition that runs through all the varieties of “love”?

Life is but Fleeting

Why do we take time for granted?

Life is but fleeting. I cherish the time I spent here with my son. Each, and every moment is of immense value for me. 

I feel a pang of regret at the time passing. Soon, I will be looking at this time as my past.

If I could go back in time, I would spend time in getting to know my father, grandmother, and aunts. Getting to know them really well. Get their story of life — what they went though.

When I was young, I never thought that these people in my life won’t last forever. Although I lost my mom in childhood, it never crossed my mind that eleven years onward, it will be my father’s turn.

I wish I had known him better. What were his hopes in life? Did he achieve them? I should have questioned him about the grandfather I never knew, whom he lost when he was ten years old.

I am writing this in the hope that my readers would realize that time never stands still. Those in our life should be loved, and cherished, and we should forgo our differences (of opinion).


Set It To Rights

Think of a time you let something slide, only for it to eat away at you later. Tell us how you’d fix it today.

In Life’s Journey

Daily Prompt: Opening Lines
What’s the first line of the last song you listened to (on the radio, on your music player, or anywhere else)? Use it as the first sentence of your post.

In life’s journey the places we pass
They never come again, never again

One voice which I liked in a forever kind of way is Kishore’s voice. He was an Indian singer. This song “Zindagi ke safar mein guzr jatain hain jo muqam” never lost it’s charm for me.

There is a heart rendering sadness to it. It’s a kind of song which is appreciated by young and old alike. Whenever it was sung at functions (although it’s a sad song), people gave a shout when it came up.

Our life is just like that. It passes in a blur. Moments keep moving forward. We can never have them again. People in our life, once we lose them, we never see them again.


I’ll Like You for Always

Daily Prompt: Last but not the Least
In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?

I got this from my daughter a few days back.

I go about life in a positive way. Sometimes the blues hit me. My daughter discerns it immediately (via phone talks), without my saying anything. Then she gets into mother protective stance, and won’t let till she finds out the cause.

I do thank God every day for my children. They are the bright stars in my existence.

My loving sweethearts, my own
Thank you for being there for me

What would I have done, if you were not there
You are the Heaven, the stars for me

I wish you long life and happiness
Joy, good health for your future to be

I’ll Like You for Always
