After all these years,
When we speak with our old friends
We realise that one thing
that our elders always have said –
We don’t know what is their journey,
or what is their destiny?
Everyone though they are your best friends,
studying in the same class
with the same kind of resources,
turn out to be different
in a way, you can never imagine.
Retrospecting the days of past
I realise how time changes
everything and everyone
just like a giant wheel
with its various position of carts.
From the top,
the world looks so small,
That makes you feel satisfied.
From the bottom,
the world looks so big
That makes you wonder with awe.
Satisfaction is the synonym
Awesomeness and wonder
are the signs of progress.
In middle a mix of both
satisfaction and awesomeness occupy,
with high dynamic properties.
Heart is always wandering
between the two extremes.
Yet maintaining a practical balance,
lies the ball game of the middle.
After a long time cool breeze struck at night.
It was both intimidating and heavy.
Heavy enough to push a lot of things at home
which were by now used to the static environment.
The breeze was deafening
But yet it was welcomed.
We opened our doors and came out
to feel the cool breeze outside.
Its been a long time to see
so many residents out in their balconies.
Laughter and cries of children
were growing louder.
A day that we have all longed for so long.
“When it comes to work,
its just work.
When it comes to study,
its just study.
When it comes to enjoyment.”
its just enjoyment.
It takes every ounce of my strength to put in words the unique relationship we possess of bond, affection, love, sacrifice and in its own little way graceful.
You are on my side when I most need you.
You be a part of my pain and
Be part of my joy
Yet in your own graceful way
You let the credit be mine.
Your dynamic nature
Awes my mouth wide open.
Yet the thought how I am going to attain it,
It is at a distance as far as moon
But surely, one day, I strongly believe
I shall attain your perfection
just like Neil Armstrong.
You can be as strict as Hitler when you have to.
You can be as caresome as Mother Teresa
when we are sick.
You can be like an innocent kid while playing
You can be a perfect study buddy during my late night study.
Undoubtedly, You are my best friend dad
I am lucky to have you as my father
i love you dad.
