Towards Life!

Once upon a time...

I wrote this about 3 years ago when I was graduating from IIT Bombay, and amazingly it still does make sense!


The Days that were and the days that will be!

There are gains for all our losses,
There are balms for all our pain;
But when togetherness, a dream departs,
It takes something from our hearts,
And it never comes again.

We might feel stronger and probably even better,
We might be even held in a grip of manhood's sterner reign,
Still we feel that something sweet
followed friendship with flying feet,
And it will never come again.

I count every tear that dims my aching eyes,
And I count the years that have flown by.
But the memories still remain
And these faces, these names will always stay the same
So as you go to the world unknown
Always remember that there is no place like home!
