My life is nothing without you!

My life is nothing without you!!
And my life changed
when I met you!!

You promised me that
you will not leave me!!
But today you made me
see you in my dreams!!

You are the special person
who walked into my life!!
And the love we shared
nothing else could compare!!
So many sweet memories
of you are flashing in my heart!!
But now all I can do is
sit in the dark and cry!!!

A beautiful story of Madness & Love..!!!

A long time ago, before the world was created and humans set foot on it, God had put all the human "qualities" in a separate room. Since all the qualities were bored they decided to play hide & seek.


"Madness" was one of the qualities and he shouted: "I want to count, I want to count!" And since nobody was crazy enough to want to seek "Madness", all the other qualities agreed. So "Madness" leaned against a tree and started to count:

One, two, three…" As "Madness" counted, the qualities went hiding. "reason" hid in a pile of garbage.. "Lie " said that it would hide under a stone, but hid at the bottom of the lake. And Madness continued to count "… seventy nine, eighty, eighty one…" By this time, all the qualities were already hidden-except "Love ".

For stupid as "Love " is, he could not decide where to hide.

And this should not surprise us, because we all know how difficult it is to hide "Love".

"Madness": "…ninety five, ninety six, ninety seven…" Just when "Madness" got to one hundred….. …."Love" jumped into a rose bush where he hid.

And Madness turned around and shouted: "I’m coming, I’m coming!" As Madness turned around, "Laziness" was the first to be found, because "Laziness" was too lazy to hide. "Madness" searched madly and found "Lie" at the bottom of the lake. One by one, Madness found them all – except Love. Madness was getting desperate, unable to find Love.


Envious of Love, "Envy" whispered to "Madness ": "You only need to find Love, and Love is hiding in the rose bush."

"Madness" Jumped on the rose bush and he heard loud cry. The thorns in the bush had pierced "Loves" eyes.

Hearing the commotion God came into the room and saw what had happened. He got very angry and cursed "Madness" and said since "Love" has become blind because of u… ..u shall always be with him"

And so it came about that from that day on, Love is blind and is always accompanied by Madness.!!!

Missing You

I miss you, plain and simple,
There’s no need to complicate things which are true,
Although those words can’t truly express,
Exactly how I feel for you.

We’ve always had our ups and downs,
More than most people I know,
But regardless of whatever happened,
I never wanted to let you go.


Now I sit here writing this,
When I really should be by your side,
Whether I’ll ever be next to you again,
Is something which you’ll have to decide.

But before you decide, just think back,
Remember all the good times we shared?
Remember all the things I did,
To show I loved you, to show I cared?

I know it’s hard to do right now,
Those sweet memories are hard to find,
With recent events corrupting your thoughts,
Shielding the light inside your mind.

Hopefully with time and space,
You’ll begin to feel the way I do,
Regardless of what you say,
I know you want to be with me too.


We both need to change the way we are,
There are always improvements inside our range,
Understanding the pain of each other,
Is how we can learn to grow and change.

I miss you, plain and simple,
There’s no need to complicate things which are true,
Whatever it takes to fix this mess,
I’ll do it, I just want to be with you.

~ The Price Of Love ~

She soared so high and free,
all pure and lovely as could be.
She knew no worry, stress or pain.
No one could imprison her by force or chain.

But as it must be, a conqueror came.
So handsome and bold, and lit the flame,
between these free spirited souls.
Their love was beautiful and all aglow.

In time their passionate thirst was quenched
and the flame of love was flickering low …
In the cold darkness of reality it began to show
Their love had taken their freedom and turned them to foes.

When they could stand it no longer,
they both returned to find their lost freedom
and search for their identity they felt they had lost.
But each day that passed their need for each other grew stronger.

Now they’re no longer unencumbered and free…
this is the price of love, you see.
Whether together or apart
the one you love has imprisoned your heart.

Cheers me up …..!!

Do I miss you? I don’t know
But Im missing your lovely smile
When my heart is hurt & tears flow down
Its not here today to comfort me

Do I miss you? I don’t know
But Im missing your warm cuddle
When I feel lonely & need your arms
Suddenly I realise ; You are far away

Do I miss you? I don’t know
But Im missing the life we shared
Morning walks along the country roads
Evenings by the golden beaches

Do I miss you? I don’t know
But Im missing your tendre love
Every minute we have spent together
I cherish in my heart with all my love

(Yeah…I miss you sweetheart)
