Treasure Island

S.D. TIWARI

(December.1955 / India)

18 till die


Glistening, dreaming eyes
lived today, hoped for future;
heart: full of winning spirit,
courage, craze and adventures.

Watching movies and sports,
listening music, eating fast food,
traveling, meeting to friends;
dancing at verge of adulthood.

Without fear of the criticism
can accept bigger challenges;
Filled with energy and enthusiasm
this is age of the cutting edge.

At my eighteen she met first,
our eyes aligned together;
Shot camera first time on her
and captured image for ever.

Yearning to retain this age till I die
but no one can stop the aging.
Though memories will stay till end
of that golden year of eighteen.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
