A Memory To Cherish!
The sun seemed angry; his radiating heat said so!|
My brows were gathering beads of sweat,
Cheeks burned, clothes clung to my body,
I looked around wildly for a getaway from the torture.
Through the haze of dust and that sun so obstinate
I got a glimpse; was she… could that be her?
Was I hallucinating an oasis unimaginable?
For I saw a figure etched in my mind since long.
The figure became a person, not my imagination.
My childhood friend from my time past
In a jiffy, we were in each other's arms!
Time reeled itself back to where we were long ago.
When we got together under the red sun yesterday,
Time stood; we were kids again, God’s own!
With a feeling purer than any relationship.
We saw things of our past with a different outlook.
A memory worth saving in my chest locked away,
Bringing it out often just to savor that noon.
Mulling over our friendship, no string attached.
No jealousy, no suspicion, and surely no heartache!
When we got together, under the hot sun yesterday,
I felt sure that of all kinds of relationships
Friendship was the noblest union of all;
A clear acceptance of each other unconditionally!
When We Got Together - Yesterday
