Gifts of the Past…

Standard

 

I turn back today…..
just to have a glimpse
At the past.
They say past is history,
So is it wrong to look at it..!!

Shouldn’t I look at the day,
When i walked through the school gates,
Shouldn’t i be obliged,
For I went in a kid and came out a lady..!!
So what if I want to go back today
And say sorry to people I have hurt…
I know I can’t..!!

Shouldn’t I look at the day,
When I had the first fight…
Shouldn’t i be glad,for the fight
Ultimately resulted in a friendship
Which still goes strong..!!
So what if the fight ended with a broken bone,
And the bone belonged to me..!!

Shouldn’t I look at the day,
When we went to see a cricket match…
Between Australia and India at the Eden Gardens
Shouldn’t I rejoice,for we had a gala time
Predicting the number of ducks..!!
So what if India lost that match
And then the series too..!!

Shouldn’t I look at the day
When we used to play kabaddi…
On a muddy rainy day..!!
Shouldn’t I be happy that I was the one
To be the winner.
So what if the next day I caught
Cold and then could not play for the next two days..!!

Shouldn’t I look at the day
When college welcomed me with open arms…
Shouldn’t I smile for I made friends.
And experienced all the craziness of the world..!!
So what if I suddenly find moist eyes..!!
The tears are the trophies I possess,
For they remind me of the good times spent.

Shouldn’t I look at the day
When I took that train journey..!!
Shouldn’t I blush
That I met the man of my dreams
And fell—fell in love…
So what if he doesn’t even know me,
I do and shall always..!!

I look at all these days and more…..
Days that will never come back,
Days that will stay with me lifelong,
Days that will always be cherished,
as wonderful gifts of the past..!!!
