The art of true happiness lies
In wiping people’s cries
Giving food to the hungry human
And cloth to the bare women
Making the whole world as your family
Spreading love and brotherhood daily
Spending life in the service of old men
Devoting time to educating poor children
Contributing money for whom it is a hindrance
Also through sharing talent and experience
Donating blood and giving life
Forgetting envy and past strife
Celebrating all religion festival together
Sharing sweets with one another
Donating eyes to the blind
Merciful to creatures of all kind
In taking away other’s pain and suffering
And bringing smile through your caring
Loving and helping others is the real virtue
Complete inner fulfillment will pursue
Real happiness is neither in glittering gold
Nor is fame where character is sold
Either not lies in the certificates or degrees
Or in power where humanity buries
Get place in someone’s heart’s corner
True happiness will come to honor
So that you will live even after you die
When remembering you people will cry

The paradox of love, odium, and the faith where the strength lie
Have made a quest for love and life, among the clouds in the sunset sky
My love unreturned, unwanted, uncared in a saga of trust and faith
Where my eyes search some peace, lips some smile and heart some breathe
In the midst of noise, restlessness, in arms of anger and pain
Amongst the crowd of sun, moon, stars but with the touch of silence again
I search myself and the love within that made my soul hungry, homeless, naked
Suffering from greatest poverty not from gold but from the heart where love has fade
I kept myself alive from closest care of the tree, its branches, leaves, flowers, and fruit
I kept putting oil till midnight to let the lamp of love keep burning
But the wind of lust for money had to take my blood, the worst revenge
The kingdom of loneliness made me the queen with broken fears
In the island surrounded by the ocean of sorrow, suffering, and tears
He aborted the trust that grew somewhere inside me
That killed not only the faith but destroyed the truth sea
The words you spoke was sweet fruit I thought
You made it rotten with artifice, deceit, dishonesty that you brought
With the darkness of treachery or lies you kept at all times all season
That I measured with my hearts beats with just one reason
The reason is the hunger for your love and thirst for your soul
The virgin heart that neither loved nor allowed any man in her heart to rule
You cut my nerves with your silent ruthless knife and deepest wounds you gave
Took away my dreams, happiness, feelings, emotions that I have to save
Now I pray to lord my almighty divine, to protect me from your lies
Your shelter with the roof of a strong heart of mine
I fold my hands wish to wake up in morning dew
Where I am born from the womb of grace as a child new
Though yearning for love but not from the unkind heart
Love from the needy world where I can play my part
Those cut from the blades of hunger, cloth, and home
And slaughtered every moment in the name of age, disease, and storm
In this world of cruel and kind, in this age of lie and truth

Let my love for them be an endless journey and a selfless path

Everything for You

Everything for You
When joy comes like breeze wind
When smile stays in gate of mind
All feeling flows like the river kind
Love of your my heart remind

My soul sings many wishes
Peace appear like God blesses
Happiness touch you like angel’s kisses
All for you and your success

Life too short and so long my desire
To do everything for you with care
A cheerful face in Life Empire
Lively sunrise every day to acquire

My wishes so pure and my feelings so true
That comes from heart like morning dew
Everything you dream be it for you
Sorrow and suffering if ever come be few

No friends leave you new or old
They are with you in days of hot and cold
A praying hand be there to hold
Stay forever with or without gold

You stay as winner in hearts of million
 God stay with you for truthful vision
No egos or pride pull legs when you have risen
Each day each moment bliss be woven

All these smiles I want to return
From thought of your which is born
Those have dwelt in my lips in times of thorn
Let those smiles your lips now adorn

Deeply entrenched in your love
I cry as well as smile
What Love is, I wondered!
-- 1--

The moment of serendipity
When we meet each other
Love, wonderful discovery
-- 2 --

He counts my tears like stars in sky
Million shining everyday
For his gifted pain
-- 3 --

I owe to her- for She
Loves unconditional
Mother, an Angel
-- 4 –

Counting days and nights
As he said me to wait few more days
Yes or No- He will say
-- 5 –

Looks, I prefer not
Your heart, what I really desire
I am in love with you
-- 6 –

Black, the colour of skin
Not the shade of your loving heart
Beauty not defined
-- 7 –

Smile smiling in my lips
You, Reason of my happiness
My Love, I ask for more
-- 8 –

A new city I saw
That never sleeps, day or night
Awakens my eye's dreams
-- 9 –

My silence is the loud voice
That speaks hearts anger and pain
As ineffable as love
-- 10 –


Muhjko teri takdeer bana de;
Zindegi ki koi tasveer bana de;
Jo roop na dekhi ho khusiyon ki tum;
Wo nazaron ki tu muhje noor bana de.

Mera neend mera chain churake
Wo kitne aaram se soye hain
Mere pyare massok se pucho
Wo kiske yaadon men khoye hain

Yeah jo ek mann hai mera
Jane kyun chahe hone tera
Chup kyun hai tu, tera marzi hai kya
Khamosi men mohabat ikrar hoti hai kya

Na manat se mile wo
Na manane se
Milke bhi na mile
Aur dur chale gaye
Takdeer ke bahanse se

Fir wahi suni suni raat aagayi
Honton men teri har baat yaad agayi
Kasoor toh thi nehi kisika
Fir kyun yeh judai ki sath aagayi

Yeah jo ek mann hai mera
Jane kyun chahe hone tera
Chup kyun hai tu, tera marzi hai kya
Khamosi men mohabat ikrar hoti hai kya

Duniya ka yeh kaisa ajeeb dastur hai
Yahan sache aashiq ka hamesha kasoor hai
Mohabat men milti nehi janat ka sath
Par gham ki sagar men doobta zaroor hai


Hazar baar dekha hai taroh ko tutte huye.
Hazar baar dekha hai daman chut te huye.
Tera sath jab mila tha tab hum sabar gaye the.
Sath chut raha hai toh bikhar gaye hain.

Bangle Seller Girl

Poem Title: Bangle Seller Girl
By: Dr. N. M. Leepsa

Oh beautiful girl, the  future bride
Buy those colorful bangles from me
I can see endless love for person on your side
With whom your entire life you want to be. 
Our life is like a roller coaster ride
Of drops of blood, sweat, and tears
Still, we see brighter side of life with pride
Because of the customer like you who cares
The heavy rain and the piles of dust
Along with clouds of storm & so tough
Buried my trade for many days in heaps of rust
You have come like new day & a ray of hope
You have flawless face with best of youth
Bangles will add beauty to your naked & bare hands
I will get enough to spend from hands to mouth
And this artist toil will not go vain in sands
Show your hands for those bangles that shine
Help this mother's hand, this heart  will bless
I will also go home as I have to wait for child of mine
When all will praise you again come me, come to this place

Received jury's appreciation for my poem Bangle seller girl as the 5th position in 'Ekphrasis' short poetry contest at 7th National Poets Meet in Kolkata on the 14th of May 2017.
