Something I Look at-1


I love you
For you have in you
The sentiments and emotions of all
From a child in his teens
To an old guard
Looking at the world
Through a pair of coloured glasses
And repenting
Why you were not there
When he was
Young and cheerful

l like you
For you have witnessed
Love and frustration
Agony and apathy
Emotions at extreme
Yet remained indifferent
Untouched by it

You are a good friend
For you never carry me away
And let me
Lose touch with reality
And a platform
To look at me
And the world around
With all dexterity

I love you
For you have in you
The beauties of the world
The thought of present
And the passion
Of yesteryears

I like the way
You carried yourself
Over the years
Silently enduring
The sorrows and happinesses
Unfolded on you
You remained within
But above it
And carried only some likes
And comments
Which are never yours

I do not know
If it is face book
On which I share views
Or it is the mirror
I daily look at
