Letter To My Favourite Musician

Yet another poem dedicated to my all-time favourite musician, Harris Jayaraj. Here is the content:

Dear Harris Sir

You are not just a musician

You are so much more than that

You are a lifesaver

And an inspiration to thousands of us

Who wake up every single day

Full of anxiety and dread

About the hardships that lie in store for them

However, the moment we put our headsets on

And tune in to your music

A feeling of calm settles over us

As our self-doubts and fears slowly fade away

And are replaced by self-belief and hope

We now feel confident enough

To take on the might of the world

And bravely face the challenges it decides to throw us

Dear Harris Sir

I have been fascinated by your music

Right since my adolescent years

There is something undefinable about it

That draws people like a magnet

It could be the fusion of Western and Carnatic music

It could be the apt use of singers

It could be the sheer symmetry of the music

Hell, it could even be the catchiness

Of the gibberish lyrics you often deploy!!

Dear Harris Sir

Over the years, I have listened to a variety of music

AR Rahman, Santhosh Narayanan, Ilaiyaraaja

Linkin Park, Evanescence, Boney M

Korn, System of a Down, Epica

And the list goes on and on

However, the kind of magic your music seems to produce

Is something which I feel cannot be matched

Even by the Pied Piper of Hamelin!!

Dear Harris Sir

I will always be your fan

However, as a well-wisher

I wish to point out

That in recent times

The X-Factor seems to be missing from your music

However, I am equally sure

That this is just a phase you’re going through

And you will no doubt bounce back

As you have often done in the past

And silence your critics

With an album for the ages
