Thank you for posting my words so beautifully, Erika ! I am humbled 🙂
Behind every dream I saw,
There was an unwavering belief..
Behind every wise decisions I took,
There was a learning & a lesson..
21st Sept is celebrated as “World Gratitude Day”. Unfortunately, I got to know about the same, just today. But, regret not ! It is always better to be late, than never. Let us celebrate this wonderful week as “Gratitude Week”, thanking the people who fill colours in the rainbow of our lives and bring light and love to our being.
You were the wind,
That gently caressed by cheeks,
Then you became one,
One with my storm..
Together we were a hurricane,
A hurricane of love,
Who constantly challenged,
The age old norms..
We’d play, we’d laugh,
We’d fight, we’d cry,
Togetherness ran perennial,
We grew inseparable..
I held your hand and lifted you up,
When climbing the ladder you fell,
You’ve been my backbone,
An anchor to my restless soul..
The best things in life,
Are neither planned nor known,
They just happen unknown..
In the blink of an eye,
Your world might change,
Although it would sound so strange !!
I came to Ahmedabad today morning around 9 am at railway station. I had my dad waiting for me happily, to take me home and help me with the luggage. On our way back home, I was fretting about the late train and chilly winter breeze in the wee hours of morning. We stopped by a traffic signal. I looked around just to observe and admire the small changes in the city I loved and missed so dearly.
