#9 Everlasting shadows

(dedicated to all my friends)

Our paths collided we met
That time was amazing, not to forget
Friends, the memories you gifted
Are the hardest things to live with

I miss you when I have chips
I miss you when I take cold drink sips
I miss the class we shared
I miss the days we didn’t cared

Together we sang songs for long
Now they seem lifeless to sing alone
Small fights and big smiles
Criticizing like small kids for a while

Teasing for even a smile of a guy
Wiping each other’s tears when they cry
Being the counselor for the one depressed
Flattering teachers to make them impressed

All the fun restricted to last bench
Attacking canteen in break, for lunch
Together we played ‘truth or dare’
Shouting in midst “that’s not fair”

Standing with hands up till teacher felt mercy
Gossiping about any current hearsay
Walking carefree with broad smile
Commenting on every step and style

Tons of crushes, hiding of secrets
Studying till late nights
Those days were the best
When life only meant- rest

When only thing broken were pens
When throwing PJs was a fun
When goodbyes meant only till tomorrow
Memories of those days is part of sorrow

I wish to go back to that time
When falling tears also meant “I am fine”
Sometimes I sniff while I remember those days
When life was a beauty in every way…
