The Sun - Poem by Harshvardhan Ramachandran

I sit here looking out
And it leaves me no doubt
That it’s going to be a hot day
While I’m on my way
For perhaps a long day of fun
Right beneath the Sun

It’s been a long time since I was home
Being away for too long was not easy
But those days were gone
Bereft of the cold from the past
Shone this warmth around me
For I could finally see
This is where I was meant to be

I meet my friends and we take a walk
Moving around quickly as we talk
About what we are going to do
Having a great time away from the world
After Seven years of hard work
We were free to do what we wanted
Without anyone to stop us
Beneath the Sun

Sometimes I stop to consider
If I had really not gone away
Would I be who I am today?
I look around at my friends who I’ve known for a decade
Knowing all the inner connections we’ve made
The toil of Seven years seems worth it
For to have friends like these
In a world so fine
Is like the most exquisite wine
Or the perfect beautiful rain
Which washes away all the pain
From times long past by
Walking back to leave after a while
With everyone’s faces beaming with smiles
Promises to meet again soon
Maybe just at noon
To stand Below the Sun
Away from the cold of the past
Into the warmth of what’s to come
