I have always taken pride for being someone who is never forgetful about wishing her dear ones on their birthdays, but shockingly this time I forgot my best friend, Mamoona’s birthday :(. I didn’t actually forget it; it’s just that there was so much happening around that it slipped out of my mind the very day she had it.
I know her for more than eight years now and this was the first time something like that happened – so, it came like a blow to us both. I tried to assuage her by fabricating a terse poesy and it proved to be profitable in pacifying her :). In fact, I too felt a little off-the-burden of guilt and regret after scribbling this down. Although none of you would be clearly able to relate to it, because of its subjective nature, but I still thought to put it up on my blog. So, here it is:
You, Me and Memories
The passage of early nest and the light drizzle,
two buds walking, speaking of their charms of youth.
Many have been the flowers of this Eden,
but oh for you and me!
Our heaven and those days of freedom,
Sitting side by side when our hearts would sink for a little more.
Yet many angels around but oh for you and me!
A delight or a nightmare,
remember the days of sorrowful regret!
Turning into dreamful memories,
when you and I, oh, were but always affectionate.
At this twilight,
let it be our dawn.
Still you and I
and those lingering stellars.
Save the somatic distance,
oh for you and me!
