Dedicated to all the lovers in the world… In the memory of Angelica
There are so many people who have affected my life and have inspired my writing a lot. However, there are some people in particular I would like to thank here. Angelica, the girl who loved me with all of her heart. She was the one who taught me the meaning of love. She is no more in this world but the beautiful memories of her will last forever. Tejal, for standing by me always, no matter what. She was the one who insisted on publishing my works. I'm glad she did. Anyway, I wouldn't have dared to argue with her! Bella Kit, for her comments on each and every piece of my work. I thank her not only for the compliments but also for criticizing them and providing with wonderful suggestions. Also, for always making my day. Danielle Myers, a very sweet, lovely girl. I would say, when I need some inspiration, I think about her the most. She is, by far, the best person I have ever known. Imran Shaikh, for believing in me and also helping me with the cover design of this book. Monalika, a girl who I have met recently but even in such a short period of time, it seems like it was meant to be. She’s amazing. She actually promised me that she’s going to be the first one to buy this book! My family. Mom and Dad, for giving me such freedom which let me explore my life and acquire this much of experience. It makes me feel lucky. My sister, who probably thinks I’m born talented. She always admired whatever I did, even more than mom and dad. To all of my friends for their constant support and appreciation. I love you guys. And the last but not at all the least, a heartful thanks to my publisher, Cyberwit for giving me this beautiful opportunity. Cyberwit has made my dream come true.
Love… crazy, stupid love. So innocent and yet, the most powerful force. Use it as a weapon and it will destroy even the strongest man. Use it as a medicine and it will heal even the deepest wound. Love is the best thing that can happen in anyone’s life. I am not calling it best just because I believe that people would be happy in love, there are heartbreaks too but because love gives them the experience of life. When we fall in love, we think about that person all the time. But as I read somewhere, love does not mean only spending long, beautiful hours together. It also means finding unbounded joy in a mere glance and soft caress of the loved one. They would say if you are not happy with someone, you don’t love them. I don’t really get it. Are we supposed to smile and laugh all the time? I don’t think so. Life is not a bed of roses, neither is love. There are problems and difficulties. There may come hard times which would make you cry. Sometimes when you cry, it might be just because you love them too much. But then, that’s a part of what it truly is. It’s well said, “Love is loveliest when embalmed in tears.” Love is indeed the greatest and powerful force. A song goes like, “What the world need now is love- sweet love.” No! What the world actually needs is an accurate and a correct understanding of love. True love is based on understanding, mutual trust and respect, not simply emotions. Love is not an emotional state confined to whims and fancies, but a transcendent state of consciousness which goes beyond the bodily forms. Love dwells in the soul.
Till now, I was just living my life having fun all the way. But today, I've reached a point when life seems so incomplete. I have got so much so often, they would say I have everything. But I don't know why, feels like something's still missing. In the good times to share all the happiness, every moment I wished that someone was there with me. So many people were there, in so many frolic ways. But my heart was searching for someone else, a special face. In the times of darkness to shed some light, every moment I wished that someone was there for me. So many people were there, in so many helping ways. But my heart was searching for someone else, a special face. Someone who would hold my hand and walk me through it all. Someone who would love me true, and catch me whenever I fall. I know there's someone out there, someone just for me somewhere. Someone who would stay forever and fill up the void in my life. I know, someday I'll find the one. But till then, I'm incomplete. So incomplete...
I remember the first time when I saw you here. I wanted to talk to you but I had this fear. How do I tell you, what do I say. I was going crazy, falling in love everyday. Then that one day you looked at me and caught me staring at you. I could swear I was almost dead, I didn't know what to do. I felt my heart race, my knees go weak. thought you would call me a freak. But then I saw that, that smile on your face. And then I knew what I had to do. That smile made me fall. That smile said it all. That smile..
Ain't Just Attraction
Listen girl, I have to tell you this, and I have to tell you now. I love you, love you so true.. The moment I saw you, the moment I knew, it's nothing like anything and I'm in love with you. I love the way you smile, the way you say hello. And the way you look at me, girl, you just make me glow. I know we've just met but you're so damn perfect. It ain't just attraction, I can feel the connection. So I tell you this, and I tell you now. I love you, love you so true. And it ain't just attraction, no no, ain't just attraction.
What would you do if someday you realize that you are in love with your friend? Just tell her? I wish it was as easy as that. I love her so much. I don’t know how or when did this happen, but I just fell in love with her. I think about her all the time. And I want to tell her about it. I want to let her know how much I love her. But I’m not sure I’d be able to do that because I don’t want to ruin what we have now. She’s my best friend! What if I tell her and she just freaks out? What if she never talks to me again? I’m just afraid to lose her as a friend. I’m so confused and I just don’t know what to do. I want to be more than friends.
More Than Friends
I'm so confused, don't know what to do. How did this happen, I've got no clue. Seems like yesterday, you were just a friend. So how did I just fall in love with you? Should I tell you or should I not? I'm afraid I would freak you out. I don't know what you would say, I'm afraid you would even stay. I'm so confused, so confused. I don't wanna be just friends anymore. 'Cause the feelings that I had for you, the feelings are not the same anymore. I wanna tell you that I love you and I would never let you fall. I wanna tell you how I feel, but I'm afraid I would ruin it all. I wanna tell you that I love you, and I wanna be more than friends, I wanna be more than friends...
You're the Real Treasure
You always listen to me, understand what I do or say. You’ve always stood up for me and never did you go away. I always doubted on my luck, 'cause it was never high. But when I thought about you, a soft breeze went by. How fortunate I am, till now I never knew, to have in my life someone like you. No money, no fame, no luxury can do. I don't need nothing, as long as I have you. I realized that it can't be better. For me, you're the real treasure. My happiness has a lock, and you are the key. You keep my secrets closed and never let them free. How fortunate I am, till now I never knew, to have in my life someone like you. Oh yes, you are special, you're the one for me. And I realized, that it can't be better. For me, you're the real treasure.
You’re Not an Option
I love you, with all of my heart, And I tell you, you're not an option. You're the only one. Yes, I love you. You're the world for me. So I tell you, you're not an option. And you're the reason. You... You're the only one to be. maybe the only one for me. You're all I will ever need. And you... You're the reason I survive, maybe the reason I am alive. You're the meaning of my life.
“Yo, what’s up with that face?” It was my friend, Max. I didn’t realize when he arrived there. I was just sitting on my porch looking up at the sky watching the clouds moving. “Hey man, nothing. I was just thinking about something.” I replied casually. “C’mon, let’s go to KFC.” He said. “No man, I’m not hungry.” As I said that, I literally felt him staring at me. I realized it was the first time in my life I have ever said “no” to KFC! He looked at me for a while and then said out of concern, “You alright man? I think you need some rest.” “Huh, no man, I’m fine.” I looked at his face and I just smiled. I thought I should break the news to him. “I’m in love, man.” I told him with that same smile on my face. “Wait, What?! Dude, you seriously need some rest.” A person who never believed in love talking about falling in love with someone in front of his friend, it certainly was a second shocker for him. And I could only smile.
She’s Like An Angel
She's so beautiful, I don't know what to say. The moment I see her, it just makes my day. She's nothing like anything, man.. but like an angel, straight from heaven. She walks with such a grace and that pretty smile on her face. There's the shine in her eyes, I tell you, they just hypnotize. She's so beautiful, just like an angel.
I'll Be There For You
When life's a mess and things don't seem right. When it's all dark and you can't see the light. You don't have to be scared, I will always be there for you. To hold your hand, walk by your side. I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you. You are never alone, I will never be gone. I will give you all my life, for you I will sacrifice. I promise, with all of my heart, I will always be there for you. When the times are tough, when the roads are rough, I promise, I'll be there for you, and we will make it through. With all of my heart, I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you.
The Pennsylvanian Girl
She's so crazy but hell so sweet. And I tell you, she's the cutest, the cutest girl I have ever known. She's the girl from Pennsylvania, the girl I dream of every single night. And nothing has ever felt so right. Everytime we talk, I never want it to end. She's in my mind, every single second. All the time, all the time, I think about her all the time. Everytime, everytime, she makes me smile everytime. She's beautiful, so beautiful, more than anything in this world. I'm in love, I'm in love, oh yes, I'm so in love, with the Pennsylvanian girl...
No Distance Can Keep Us Apart
Baby, I love you with all of my heart. And no distance can keep us apart. Call me when you need me, I'll be there when you want me. No matter where you are, it don't matter how far. Wherever you are you should know, that I will always love you baby. I will come to you whenever you say and you can always count on me. You mean the world to me, and forever you will be. So baby, call me when you need me, I'll be there when you want me. No matter where you are, it don't matter how far. 'Cause baby, I love you with all of my heart. And no distance can keep us apart.
This strange silence, all this instability. My heart's gone adrift in such perplexity. Asking the unquestionable questions, searching for unanswerable answers. Somewhere at the corner, hiding in the dark. What is it afraid of? It wanna say something, but has no words. It wanna do something, but has no strength. Seems like it’s on a journey without any destination. Surrounded by problems, without any solution. This strange silence, all this instability. My heart's gone adrift in such perplexity.
You'll Always be My Love
You never knew how much I loved you. And maybe you never will. It's not something I can say, all about what I feel, I feel... I am smiling, no longer trying. I’ve let you go, that’s what you know. but in my heart.. I'm falling apart. Everything ain't the same to what you see. You are in this life, beyond death you will be... my love, my love. Forever, my love...
Let You Go
Hey, I want you to know that I love you so much. I don't ask you to love me back, it don't matter if you don't care. I just want you to know, that I would let you go.. Because all I want, what I really want, is you to be happy. Wherever you are, whoever you are with, I just want you happy. So I would let you go, just wanna let you know that I have always loved you and I always will. And I will be right here, if someday you need me. My love will never become less, it's unconditional, it will always be. I just wanna let you know, that I would let you go. Because all I really want, is you to be happy. So I would let you go, let you go...

Can't Wait To See You
Night's going to pass but I can't sleep. I'm trying to close my eyes but I can't sleep, No, I can't sleep... I don't wonder why, I know the reason. And no no, it's not the summer season. Yes, I know the reason... ‘Cause I'm gonna be with you, gonna be with you tomorrow. I can't wait to see you, to see you until tomorrow. I can't wait... Now I'm writing this song, for you my lover. I wanna sing it to you, let the night be over. But hey, I can't wait to sing it for you, can't wait until tomorrow. No no, I can't wait. But I know I have to wait, for the sun to rise. And you'll be right there, in front of my eyes. I'll be with you my lover, Let the night be over...

I Wish You Were Here
Sitting here in my backyard, looking up at the sky. I see the stars, the moon. Oh it's so beautiful, so beautiful. I wish you were here, I wish you were near. It's so beautiful, so beautiful and I wish you could hear Wish you could hear what my heart says. I miss you, I miss you, miss you in so many ways... This evening, it's so beautiful, yet, so incomplete without you. Without you, so incomplete.. I am so incomplete without you. I wish you were here, I wish you were near. It's so beautiful, so beautiful and I wish you could hear Wish you could hear what my heart says. I miss you, I miss you, miss you in so many ways... This beautiful evening, I wish you were here, ‘cause baby, it's so beautiful, yet, so incomplete without you. It's such a beautiful evening and I wish you were here...
Let Me Sleep, Forever
She loves me, loves me like mad. She's gone so crazy, whatever she had? I hope I'm not dreaming. 'Cause it's just too good, just too good to be real. But I can say, if it's a dream, I would love to sleep forever. So please, don't wake me up, I don't want to lose her ever. 'Cause maybe we've just met, but she's so damn perfect. She would do anything, just to make me smile. She loves me for what I am. and she gets me so well. I just hope I'm not dreaming, 'cause it's too good to be real. But hey, I don't care even if it's not real. And if it's just a dream, I would love to sleep forever. So please, don't wake me up, I don't want to lose her ever. 'Cause maybe we've just met, but she's so damn perfect. And even if it's a dream, I would love to sleep forever.
I Wanna Live For Today
Uncertain of the future, not knowing what may come. I wanna live this day, in this very moment. I wanna cherish now what I have got. For death is certain but life is not. It may be well, just a dream. But hey, you know what, I don't care. Today you're with me, that is all that matters. And I wanna live it all before this dream shatters. So let me live now, maybe just for today. Let me live it all in this very moment. And I wanna live, every second of it, every single bit... I wanna live for today, and I wanna live it all...
How Could You Say
How could you say, forget it all. How could you say, just move on. How could you say, how could you say. I can't just walk away... All these beautiful years we have been so good. What's gone wrong now, everything's so messed up. How could you tell me to just stop loving you. It’s not as simple as that, It’s something I can never do. You have your reasons, I know. And if you say I would let you go. But I can't forget it all, and I can't just move on.
One chance... Just one chance... One chance, to show what you mean to me. One chance, to show you that I care, I really do. Just a chance is all I'm asking for. Just one chance. Can't take it no more, no no I can't. You know I need you, yeah, I really do. Feeling so cold, so lonely. So empty inside, wholly, completely. Without you in my life I'm nothing less than dead. I know I have hurt you, I know it was my fault. I just need a chance, one chance to make it right. Hear me once, don't go away. Don't leave me, baby please stay. Why can't we be like before? Love and Care worth dying for. I really wanna make it work this time, I just wanna have you by my side. I can change, and baby yes.. I will. Trust me now, I have nothing to hide. All I'm asking for.. is a chance, just one chance...
Tell me what I shouldn't do, forgive me for what I had. I never meant to do nothing, that could make you feel sad. All your pain dear, I wish I could see. But I was too busy, just thinking of me. I'm sorry for what I shouldn't have done, extremely sorry for everything I had. Now please tell me what I should do to make you feel better, shed off your sad. Trust me now, for every word I say is true. Just tell me and I'll do whatever I have to. Let me make it clear now, I don't care even if I have to die. But just because of me, I'll never make you wanna cry. So tell me what I shouldn't do, please forgive me for what I had. I'll never hurt you again, Just let me know if I'm too bad. But forgive me please. Don't be sad, don't be mad. Forgive me, Please...
I have a very complicated relation with life. It acts so crazy sometimes you know. There was a time when “life” gave me the perfect girlfriend, I mean simply the best any guy can ever have. Maybe, just to make me happier. Because as harsh as it is sometimes, it still loves me. She was just amazing. We were happy together and it was supposed to be forever. But then, I guess “life” got possessive or jealous of me. It just killed her. Stupid life! Could have simply told me so, I could have broken up with her or left her. But no, this “life”, it had to just kill her. Maybe, to get rid of her forever. That’s how crazy life is. Actually, that’s how crazy my life is.
Walking down the boulevard, I saw that girl. When she looked up and smiled, my heart missed a beat. The same innocence, the same charm. For a second, I thought it was her. But then, I realized it can't be. No way, it can't be her. It brought a smile on my face, just remembering her. And pain in my heart Because she was gone, forever.
I Can Never Let Go
Nothing could hurt me, nothing ever touched me so deep. Nothing but you, you took my breath away. I let you in, deeper inside, where no one else had ever been. I never felt so light, I didn't have to fight. Everything was so good, it all seemed so perfect. And then it was gone. You were gone... I could feel my heart, shattered into pieces. And I can pretend, that everything's fine. But deep inside I know, that I can never let it go.
Lost in Paradise
It's been so long since you are gone. But I still think about you all the time. I carry on and I know I have to move on. But getting over you is nothing near easy. I can't forget all the beautiful times we had and I can't let go of yesterday just like that. 'Cause you... You took me soaring to the sky and baby, I had never been so high. No I can't, I can't let you go away, 'Cause I want this feeling to stay. I'm lost, so lost... I'm lost in Paradise. So long since you are gone and somehow I carry on, 'cause I know I have to move on. But I can't forget all the beautiful times we had and I can't let go of yesterday just like that. 'Cause you... You showed me places I could never see, it was beautiful, more than it could ever be. No I can't, I can't let you go away, 'Cause I want this feeling to stay. I'm keeping you here, in my world. And we'd be here together, forever. I know I have to move on, but I am so alone. I'm alone, all alone... lost in Paradise. I'm lost, so lost... I'm lost in Paradise...
Falling down, falling down, here comes the rain. Some words unsaid, unveiling the hidden pain. Tearing down my heart, right through the deepest memory... The forgotten phases, I never wanted to see, never wanted to see.. Falling down, falling down, with the rain I'm falling down. Here comes the rain and I'm falling down..
My Christmas Song
Christmas, you told me,
is the time to be near your loved ones. Then why ain't you here? Why did you leave me? I still remember the times that we had. Your touch, your kiss.. how we've gone mad. We were wild, we were free. You took my hand and swore to me, that you will never go. But how was I suppossed to know... That you'll be gone.. and I'll be here, all alone. But baby, I still remember the times that we had. I loved you so much, it's crazy I never said. And Christmas as you told me, is the time to be near your loved ones. And all I want is to be with you, cuz baby I love you, I really do. But hey, I ain't crying. And no no, I ain't dying. Cuz I got your memories baby, it keeps me going.. and I know... It's been so long, so long that you're gone, but you were there with me all along. You were always there, always there. I can hear the bells, I will let it snow, let it snow. And I can feel you in every song.. You are still here, still here. You will never be gone for me. Christmas was the special day, when you told me that you love me. And as special as that, I promise, Christmas will always be. If you love someone, tell them. Don't wait. Because sometimes, it's a little too late.
We never really care about the people who love us with all their heart. All we can think about is the people we love, living every single moment in the hope that they love us too. And when we find out that the ones we are madly in love with don't love us or they love someone else, they actually don't even care about how we feel, we complain that no one loves us. And yet, there will be this other person waiting, pleading for just one chance to prove their love for us. Ready to do anything just to make us feel special. But why should we care? Someone broke our heart so we do the same to others, right? Say, for revenge? Is it?
Why not, just for a change, we try to see what the other person has got for us? And maybe, maybe we realize that it was worth it. Who knows? Just for once, stop running behind the one who never really cared about your feelings and just turn around. You will realize that you were never alone, never unloved. Well, it's all up to you. All I would say is, we have got this one life. And it's damn too short to sit around and grieve about things we can't change. Live it, love it and make every moment count.
You're Never Unloved
No matter what the world says, no matter what you have done. It don't matter if they're gone, trust me, you're never alone. You can’t stop crying, you feel like dying. But don’t give up, never give in. All you need, is to look around, not just eyes but open your heart. And you will realize that you were never unloved. You will find people, people who love you. But then you have to let it go, let it go. You have to just let it go… And trust me on this. You’re never alone. You’re never unloved.
Love Is All
When you've been feeling lonely, and you've cried a thousand tears. You need someone you can count on and you're tired of all your fears. You can have all the money, you can keep all the fame. But that ain't gonna help you, that ain't gonna help you.. Nothing can make you feel better ‘cause when you need some direction, to hold your hand and walk you through, love is all that you need, love is all. You can act all tough, pretend to be strong. But inside you're crying, and you feel like dying. You've been feeling so down and you need some inspiration. Look around, don’t give up. Open the doors to your heart. It might hurt sometimes, but hey, it’s worth it. This world, this life. It's so beautiful, but it's your call. To see it, to feel it, love is all that you need, love is all. You'll never be lonely, you'll never be down. All you need is love, and love is all. Love is all...
