My Ways...


I would give you a shoulder to lean on
If I believe that afterwards you'd be strong
I would wipe your tears
Knowing that a smile would follow
I would walk the rough path with you
Knowing that soon you'd learn to walk alone, too
I would hold your hand and say soothing words
If I believe that it would give everlasting courage

But -



If I do not give you my shoulder anymore
If I simply let you cry
If you do not find me with you on the rough path
If I leave your hand and you no more hear my words
If all of a sudden you notice change in my attitude
Please do not feel that I care any less,
I am simply trying an alternate way to make you strong.

  5. Its true that you are still there... but sometimes its leaving someone alone cud create differences rather than making the person strong...
    Its usually difficult to understand a persons good intentions...

  7. It is not exactly leaving alone, Manish. It is being there silently, not actually helping. It also means that I would be there again if my friend cannot handle the situation alone. 

    Yes, I do agree that it is difficult to understand a persons good intentions.

  10. True silently you are there, but sometimes words are needed. Also, silence can sometimes be taken as distance between two people. Silence is true when words fail to convey.Silence is true when it speaks for itself even within the crowd.

  13. Haan, sometimes words are needed, I agree. It is after that word phase that this phase comes. Waise har insaan pe depend karta hai mannu ke woh kya sochta hai ... jab tak karne wale ka mann saaf hai, intentions sahi hai tab tak to sab nek hai!

  14. That I totally agree. Har insaan pe depend karta hai ki woh ultimately khud kaisa hai aur woh duniya ko kaisa samajhta hai.

I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.
