Past 2013

The lane on which I travelled for an year
Is closing down forever
With a sweet warning
Never turn back
As you will find yourself
Like an alien
surrounded by none
Recognised by none
Welcomed by none.

The old moments were
Like each footprint you made
on sands of time and
Were washed away as you went on
Taking each steps forward.
Now what remains with you
Is only the memories, which you can cherish it anytime.

Each steps you climbed on 2013
will become sweet memories of 2014.

Before stepping into new and unknown zone
I wish to take few past memories with me
Before bidding good bye to 2013.

    As the old lane closes before us, a new lane opens up! Let it be one that poses least threats and assures smooth travelling! Let us carry the sweet memories of bygone times and forget all that is painful! A great write, Geetha! !
