Awakening - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

What awakes, when I pass that lane...
a memory so dear so familiar.
The warmth of that hand,
two bodies lying in the sand,
Love in the eye
which always made me shy!

What awakes, when I pass that tree...
which helped me from secrets free.
words that meant 'They understand'-
who have seen me cry in pain.
The fragrance of those blooms
took away all my gloom! !

What awakes when I revisits my heart
happy and sad memories tear me apart
Ghosts of the past
are all gone at last
now the world is better
&, thats all that matters! ! !

    The beautiful moments, the innocent mischief, the raw creativity in whatever we used to do in the past are stored safely in that Safe of ours, only accessible to us whenever we need to take a peek down memory lane and relive the moment.
    At times you wonder; was I really like this? So smart! So good!

    Let this feeling of awakening,
    Happen with you and all of us everyday
    We will never grow old.
    We will just keep growing.

    Thank you for making me young.
    Nice one
