Things Left Behind…

Last evening,

As I was rummaging through

A heap of frozen moments,

I found a slice of time

Wrapped in silk,

With pink ribbons and glittering stars.

It sat perched on the edge of my memories.

I paused

And drew it close to my heart.

It was light

And soon I knew why.

It had some frothy laughter within

With the softness of a mother’s love.

There were patterns scribbled

In pinks and blues

On velvet dreams and flaky walls.

There were hugs and kisses

And hopes and prayers.

 There was everything that I longer had.

Is that why

My heart has never felt light

Ever since I left those moments behind?


What do you think?

A teacher and a learner - both by passion and profession. Music, cooking, reading, writing, traveling and all kind of creative stuff keep me  going . You are not likely to catch me in a crowd. Instead, you might find me taking a walk on semi dark evenings  talking to the stars or thinking
