How far has it been…
By Madhusmita Das
Turning the bright blue sea to a blood red,
And as I soak in the magical transformation, I see..
It has been a long way..
..from the cobbled brick lanes
..from the unconditional love
..from uncomplicated friendship
..from meaningless spirited conversations
..from the timeless moments of silence,
in the all so familiar..
The tide comes in with a new set of pebbles,
The old ones I no longer see
But yes! I do see the milestones!
And with it, the promises that were meant to be kept
I close my eyes,
I attempt to overlook the haziness,
All I could hear were the smiles
All I could think were the thoughts
All I could see was the way ahead
I could still feel the sadness, the silent tears,
As vivid as it was yesterday
The smallest of promises that were really meant
The grandest of plans that seemed to come true
My eyes snap open as a fresh wave comes in,
once again I see the blood red sea
and a life so different!
The dreams are different,
So are the smiles and tears
I tread a path that I have created,
never knowing how..
never knowing why!
I ask myself..
How do I relive?
The unconditional love,
The uncomplicated friendships
Go back to the timeless moments of silence,
of the all so familiar..
and keep all the promises..
