Rear View Mirror
There's a thing about being ahead,
at the top,
When you look through the rear view mirror and see how far you've come,
A thought strikes.
About the decisions you took
All the choices that you made
But it's not the thought.
The thought is who is with you to share it with.
And sometimes that very rear view mirror shows some faces, some faces nearer, some faces far,
some blurred just for the heart to watch,
and maybe some of them could have been there.
And then another thoughts strikes back instantly.
And then you realise that there will always be people you'll have to look through those rear view mirror.
They are behind and you've moved ahead.
And the bizarre, dangerous, peace snatching thought of "what if" , fades into the serendipity of present moment - > "Now."
