The Teardrop………

I saw a teardrop and asked
"Hey, whom do u belong to?"
It said, "I am rolling down your cheeks"
"so I belong to the one called 'you'"

I was startled, I was surprised
To realize that I was crying
I wasn't so sure it was true
The teardrop could have been lying!

So I asked the teardrop again
The reason why it came down
It said, the only reason was,
"You have been feeling down"

I laughed it off and I told the tear,
"I am laughing, it's not a frown!"
Your laughter is, but a mask, it said
To hide the sorrows deep down.

Was it right? Was I wrong?
I called my heart to find out
"Hey heart, are you hurt?"
it heard, and it cried aloud.

Hurt it was, I could see
As my heart cried its heart out
I couldn't see as plain a fact
And my heart began to rant about

It ranted about the betrayals -
The hurt that my neared ones gave
Friends, relatives, and myself –
With my heart they misbehaved

I'd realize now, albeit a bit late
That I was really hurt deep down
My heart was bleeding; it's true
My laughter was a disguised frown

And as I turned to address
The teardrop once again,
It had fallen down my cheeks
I was crying with hurt, with pain!

Happy Teacher's Day

To my Teachers,
for they taught me many things
and more than that
put the spark of curiosity in me...

To my Parents,
for they taught me what life is
and also made me what i am-
awakened the spirit of humanitiy...

To my Sisters,
for they taught me what patience is
and put up with all my tantrums, snobbiness -
awakened love and understanding in me...

To Her,
for she taught me what love is
and made me believe in myself -
taught me what "missing" someone means...

To my Friends,
for they taught me the meaning of friendship
and have been with me through everything -
taught me the spirit of "Friends Forever"-ness
