Just like us!
We meet and share a glance or two,
Then meet again and utter some words,
Of friendship, of love, of hatred and envy,
On people, on trees, on animals and birds.
We sit beside each other for days to come,
At times sipping coffee, at times some wine,
Laying on the grass or walking the streets,
Sharing conversations and silent time...
A day comes and we can't carry this on.
Life comes in between and it's time to part,
We might smile and say goodbyes,
Or shed warm tears with a heavy heart.
While our feet walk away, our soul wants to stop,
And run back to what we shared before,
We know things change and it won't be the same,
So we take half a step back but move ahead for sure.
As I went out to see the sky last night,
I realised that nature is just the same,
It's time that winter left us already,
But after all this while, parting means pain!
The fog had returned to touch the lights
And whisper again sweet nothings to trees,
One last time to enjoy together the cold,
Before the blanket of Spring colours the leaves.
And why would it be any different, the nature!
For all this universe is made of us.
It takes what we give out to the world,
And somehow manages to bring it back to us!!
