365 days ago we met
on a wintry and windy night
the town dazzled and skies lit up
and you entered in my life.
unaware, on unknown paths I traversed
erasing and creating memories
for gifting me a bag you said
"these are your share of gratification and grief".
you 'connived' with time
some shells of wisdom I did find
and then the days flew off
on remains of relations that I lost.
months crept in and our bond cemented
experiences inter-weaved- bold, new and vivid
a lonely b'day and some dark nights
I embraced all with amazement and delight.
people we meet are like stars
millions of them in a galaxy
who alter their path suddenly
never returning back onto the trajectory.
the vastness of my city
travelling alone, far and wide
free, like a young bird
who has just learn to glide.
in astonishment the sea of faces
around me in malls and buses
each one so diverse and different
yet with a heart that beats in rhythm.
a step ahead in accomplishing my creams
a dream to serve my fellow beings
entering a world of distress and pain
devoting myself to the selfless lane.
ahead with a belief in heart
when its your time to depart
that I will stack up your memories
like leaves entangles the breeze.
Finally I say,
goodbye year 2010
goodbye my dear companion and friend
I will miss you a lot but I regret not
the gloomy, harrowing experiences you brought.
Letting you go with,
our parting wish that this new year
will bring in more enjoyment and cheer
not just for you and me
but all those who welcome it with glee!
A very happy and prosperous NEW YEAR to everyone :)
