Looking Back!

Looking Back! short poem

Photo by legends2k

On the intertwining paths of life
When you come across someone of old.
When you stop for a moment
And time flies by
Memories well up in your moist eyes;

Golden days of happiness, that day of radiant sunshine
That day you see someone who you are determined to be
That sullen day because of a fight in ignorant mind
That day when friends were friends and the enemies just petty rivals
That very day which you left behind without turning back
Neither a wave of hand or a single thought you spared
Rushes back to you
And again with a light smile you bid farewell to that friend of old
And walk past her to an onward journey
Because that day was never ever going to return!
