I captured a feeling and framed it
I captured a moment and melted in it
I captured a gesture and grew with it
I captured a beat and basked in it
I captured an opportunity but opted out of it
I captured a dream and drowned in it

time may heal what seems non-healable now
time may help forget what seems unforgettable now
time may kill what seems undying now
time may stop what seems unstoppable now
time may bring back what seems lost now

i cannot wait for time
my fears cannot wait for time
my eccentricities cannot wait for time
my stubbornness cannot wait for time
my hopelessness cannot wait for time

Innocent thoughts-A list for God

My six-year-old son was excited as he was to travel by a plane for the first time. We were to fly in a couple of days, and seeing his excitement, I told him how he will find himself surrounded by clouds once the plane gains height.

Eyes widened, he asked, "Really? Will we be up there in between the clouds?"

When I replied in the affirmative, he asked innocently, "God lives there, right? I will make a list of things I want from God. I'll give it to Him when I meet Him."

Innocent thoughts-Why are you not lazy?

My son gave me a reason to smile this morning. Today was one of those rare days when he got up before me.

The six-year old, who is often reprimanded for being lazy, observed me get up in the morning, and start my morning chores immediately, and then sit on my computer to make some posts in my blogs. As he gets scolded every morning for lazing on the bed & delaying his morning chores, he had a questioning look on his face and finally asked, "Daddy, don't you feel lazy in the morning? How is it that you get up and get to work straightaway?"

I never miss these occasions to impart some knowledge to my son about the ways of the world. I told him that I have to get up early, and perform many roles - work on my blogs, go to office, go to the gym, attend my Part-time MBA classes and so on.

His next question was why was I performing so many roles. So, I explained that I was working hard to make more money and to give him a good life.

The next question was, "Why do they pay you money at office?" Again I had to explain that I get paid because I do the work in my department, and if I was not there, my boss would have to do all the work himself. As I was doing the work for him, what is it that I should get?

With the air of someone with all the worldly knowledge, came the answer from my young son, "Return gift"!
