I laid eyes on you,
I knew for a fact
This was a dream come true.
Everything my heart desires,
In one single go,
Fell into my lap,
Made my love grow.
I know now
My life is complete.
No more struggles
Or battles to compete.
Now I see
My future at last.
Up the life ladder we go,
Together it’s a blast.
You showed me
The true meaning of love,
My guardian angel,
Sent from above.
The heart is an organ
We cannot live without,
But I give you my heart,
In trust, without a doubt.
For years to come
We will become stronger
Together, hand in hand
And forever longer.
I love you
With all my heart and soul.
You met me broken
And made me whole
–A Whole Love by Kyle
Your cooking is great
I told you once
you offered to teach me
because you love me
I kept learning from you
as a good student does
for many a years
because I wanted to cook like you do
One day you told me
‘lessons are over, now you know
all that’s required to
cook like I do’
I still didn’t get the taste
I am so used to enjoy in your cooking
Until you gave up the secret ingredient
‘I keep thinking of you while cooking for you! ! ‘

my first ride on a bicycle
by Rangarajan Kazhiyur Mannar
My first ride on a bicycle
Feeling emancipated & ecstatic
As if flying to the pinnacle
The mood was indeed electric
Pedalling the lean steel wheels
Adorned by festoons on the handle
Cruising through the coastal winds
An experience words fail to tell
From Mylapore to Triplicane
Places adored by mystic saints
The ride along the east coast
Though short boosted the spirits
Balancing on the two wheels
A task seemingly impossible
For a beginner to learn the tricks
A prelude to ride the real life cycle!
by Lynn B. Glover
I know of nothing that can happen badly,
When a man goes fishing with a wee laddie.
The poles they carry along with the bait,
Says, ‘Gone fishing early and staying late’.
When a man goes fishing with a small boy,
The lad is as happy as playing with a new toy.
We would sit on the bank and bait our hooks,
We have forgotten work, and school and books.
As we sat there alone on the bank,
Our minds seem to gradually go blank.
However, the excitement is about to begin,
A nibble and the lad will fight to the end.
At times it seems this fish would win,
The lad fights back and looks at me with a grin.
‘Don’t give up the fight, ‘ I shout,
I looked over at the lad and he had caught a huge trout.
The grin has now turned into a large smile,
This smile won’t go away for a long, long while.
‘Look! ‘ he said, ‘At what I did.’
I said ‘That’s a huge fish you caught today, kid.’
There’s one thing that I’m sure,
The lad out fished me with his lure.
Someone asked him, ‘Where have you been? ‘
He answered ‘I have been fishing, and I want to go again.’
