Treasure Island

Deepak Calyampoondi

Fond Memories...

Life is momentary, so live in the moment,
Cherish what you have and be content,
live in the present and not in the past,
for life alike time never does last.

Life is a staircase, every step is your thought,
so think carefully, do not regret what you've brought.
Life is a balance of good and bad,
forget the worse and be happy of the good times you've had.

Life is a boat, where we all have to sail,
some boats sink that's when we fail,
take that time as a lesson to learn,
swim against the currents and your life turns,
to the very destination which you desire,
use your imagination which fuels your fire.

We've come alone and alone shall we go,
we are indeed tourists, we visit this world to and fro,
what we leave behind is thoughts that nourish,
in the form of fond memories forever in others to cherish.

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
