The poems in this collection have been collected over
a period of time. Some are love poems, some are
friendship poems, some express happiness, some sorrow
and pain. It goes without saying that these are my
favorites. Some of these have been written by me, some
written for me, but most of them are creations of
The emotions expressed in each, reflect what
have been or would have been my own reactions under
the same situations the poets were in when these gems
came into existence. It must be true for many of us.
This proves that human hearts feel the same
irrespective of boundaries of time, culture and place.
If some poem strikes a chord in your heart too, I
would consider this effort amply rewarded.
Wherever I could, I have given the names of the poets.
The names of the poets of many of these poems I am not
able to provide, because I can not recollect the
names. If you happen to know the poets' names please
write to me so that I can give the due credits to
those persons. I beg the pardon of those poets.
Note: If you
are the author of any poem or if you have copyright of any poem, and if
you object to the listing of some poem here, please write to me. I beg
your pardon and I promise to immediately remove that poem from this
