HAVE YOU EVER KNOWN….?

(Words will never be enough to convey true feelings and emotions. All that is there to this poem is not here in the introduction but in the poetry that follows. Be thankful that you got a chance to love, ‘coz some of us may never know what true love was….coz its only fallacy that we have experienced throughout our lives…….)

Have you ever felt the rain drops

falling from the sky

Like a dear ally

‘Coz you remember the times

When you walked; hand-in-hand

With the one you love

And as the rain water drenched you so

It felt like blessings from above


Have you ever looked, at the stars

On a silent lonely night

And as they whispered their story to you

It felt somehow so right

You gaze lovingly into the space

As they twinkle all the way

And assure you of the feelings unknown

That will wake up with the new day


When the morning sun rises

and the rays, kiss you on the cheek

As the breeze gently caresses your face

In the knees it makes you weak


Have you ever known

Did you ever knew

This kind of a LOVE

It feels like

It feels like

It feels like, blessings from above


Have you ever loved

and then lost

The one you held so dear

As even in that, dreamy haze

You felt a deep-rooted fear


‘Coz you are mine

and mine alone

You live in this broken heart

This memory, I can’t erase

Now that you are, apart


I surround myself with people

To forget the pain of your longing

But it doesn’t seem like ever

To this crowd, I am belonging

I stick out like a sore thumb

I stand out from the rest

I don’t think, our going away from each other

Has worked out for the best


And as you climb, the ladders of success there

For me, even a small change, is rare

As you reach the top

and kiss the hands of fame

I am just, barely aware


It shut myself in my room

and cry out, your sweet name in vain

When will you ever, pass this way

Oh, when will you come again?


In the hope that you may listen to me

and take me with you away

I can’ t bear, to go on living

In such a dismal way


‘Coz you are mine 

and mine alone

You live in this broken heart

This memory I can’t erase

Now that you are, apart


The sweet is not sweet without you

The spice has lost its spice

When I’m unable to share, things with you

They just don’t seem that nice


And its the same sun that awakens you

And the same moon that gets you asleep

And although I share, them with you

The longing for you is deep


Have you ever known

Did you ever knew

This kind of a LOVE

It feels like

It feels like

It feels like, blessings from above


So, am I lucky

That I got the chance

To love someone like YOU

To be a witness

To all your secrets

A right that you gave to few

Or am I unlucky

That someday I may see you

in someone else’s eyes

And in your eyes,

I’ll see the love

That breaks our, fragile ties


Alas, I am not the person

Who will follow you, upto the last

And in each other’s lives

We’ll just be a distant past


And when I see you

walking hand-in-hand

with someone else, alright

I would wonder

Where my destiny failed me

Why didn’t it turn out right?


And, although you’ll be happy

Like someday, happy I will too be

But we wouldn’t feel

that intense passion, we felt together

neither you, nor me


And we’ll bid goodbye to each other

We will vanish into the light

We’ll give up & falter & stumble

We’ll lose this age old fight


Our story won’t be famous

Only the two of us will know

That we learnt life’s

most difficult lesson

And as a person

did we grow….


I am sure everyone has a

great love story

In their un-amusing lives

The one in which –

neither of the two lovers

But its true love 

that slowly dies


Have you ever known

Did you ever knew

This kind of a LOVE

It feels like

It feels like

It feels like, blessings from above

Have you ever hurt

Have you ever cried

For this kind of a LOVE

It killed you heart

It bled your soul

But it still was a gift from above

…still was a gift from above
