In the Middle of Life


Where we want to run away
Away from life there is no way

The trails… The failures
Concealed are all the answers

The pain… The struggle
All the efforts seem feeble

What we want to achieve
Where we want to reach

With those empty words
What we want to preach

Sometimes we choose
Sometimes we loose

There is absolute freedom
This we know

And the beauty is
In the middle of life
We grow…


A gift


She came silently & stayed for long

Some noticed & some just went along

The mystery of her was not a mystery at all

The distance between was just a wall

On the last night she promised and gone

Just to come back again at dawn



Let’s go out for a evening snack. She would have said to him. With baby in his hand he walks looking at his wife, they enter food court and sit next to my table. I was lost in thoughts. When I looked at them, a thought crossed my mind. “How would they behave with each other?” , Next thought was ” Just wait & observe.”

She walks to counter and place an order. Husband sitting & sweetly trying to make baby sleep. “What a sweet partner”, I thought.

Order is ready. She goes to collect; while returning back tray falls down from her hand. “Why it happens with me every time. I can’t do anything right. I am not good at anything”. self condemning thoughts try to make her feel guilty. I started feeling sad. Thought I should go to her and say ” It happens, let it go and smile”. I couldn’t do that. At that moment a thought crossed, ” Send Love & Light to her”. When I began sending I felt relieved & peaceful.

With tears rolling down her eyes she sits silently at chair. After sometime she looks at her husband to see his response. Sitting calmly with baby he just look at her lovingly and says something to soothe her. Her face start changing, a smile comes on her face. He gives baby to her, walks towards ATM to draw some money and place a new order. What amazed me was the care & calmness he showed. I felt like crying.

Order is ready. This time he walks to counter and brings food. They start to eat. But baby sleeping in her hands, how she would pick up food? Giving her a smile he suggests her to come little forward. He picks up a bite, place in her mouth and both start eating and enjoying food. I am smiling sitting at my table while waiting for my order.

Baby starts crying. Wife tries her best to make her sleep. But baby’s crying grows louder. “One more test”, I thought.

He takes the baby. Now it’s wife’s turn to pick up a bite and place in his mouth. Smilingly and playfully they continue their eating. Baby is becoming restless. So he gets up and starts walking around looking at her wife he request her to carry on with eating. “Thank you God for everything”, she expresses her gratitude silently.

Baby falls asleep and he comes back to table. “I feel like having some sweet”, she expresses her desire. what could have been a better option than an ice cream parlor just behind her. She takes her purse and walks to parlor and buy her favorite one.

They both eat happily and walk out of food court talking & smiling. Of course baby still in hands of husband sleeping calmly. I just look at them and wonder, ” What an amazing understanding! “.
