The Year Gone By…

A poem expressing feelings close to my heart…

Losing loved ones is never easy…but at times it is necessary to let go than to hold on.

As I sit reminiscing the year gone by,

The memories of the past days flash before my eyes.

A smile plays on the lips as I relive,

Wondering what was and what is.

Misunderstandings creep in with words unsaid,

That eventually seep through the bonds which were once the dearest.

The smile the presence which at one time mattered the most,

Now feels like a hazy memory… slowly fading as time goes.

Climbing stairs of personal achievements working more and more,

Reasoning that time for the other does not exist anymore.

Slowly the differences become glaringly evident,

Similarities that existed once are no longer prominent.

Doubts, judgements and lack of trust creep in,

We try, but there no longer exists that close understanding.

It is strange how circumstances brought about these changes,

All that lies between us now is strange talks, silence and awkardness.

They say that time has the power to heal all scars,

Slowly with it this sombre state too shall pass.
Things today may not be like what they were in the past,

But, if one day we do cross each other’s path,

I hope that we can look beyond our struggles our differences,

And share a smile…which maybe meaningless but touches our hearts.
