Many roads 
Different routes 
Some taken 
Few forsaken 
Well charted
Painstakingly created 
Filled with upheavals 
Some silken smooth 
Leading to the same destination 
To freedom 
Only to be chained again 
To a new journey
Of life. 

Time flies 
Has it made me any wise?
Have I learnt from 
yesterday's mistake
As in today's activities I partake
Grapple in planning my tomorrow
Some thoughts I ponder and borrow
Mourn , rejoice over joy and sorrow
Lose my peace in the bargain 
There, time flew by....... again!

Trying to discern your love for me
Was it the passion you brewed in the morning coffee
Your heart poured
In the verses you wrote
The look in your eyes 
As you helped me save the sinking boat
Or was it the time you smiled & said
 it will be ok
Tread your path,choose your way

She dealt with the present
Relived the past
Emotions ran furious fast
Told herself it's ok to be sad
Sometimes the going is bad
Drowned her sorrow within
Hid her tears, faked the grin
Tomorrow is another day
That's the call
Brave it, stand tall
Till another winter
Another fall.
