a poem by Sathya N K

Under the darkness of the night sky
My mind meanders through the times which went by
Many treasured moment’s surface and wane
Like those tiny stars far above shine
Few events which touched the heart stay for a while
Squeezing the heart gently like the wind blowing by
Vision goes blur for a second and bright for another
Like the moon playing hide n seek with the cloud near
Few phrases and words spoken recur through the inner walls of the ear
As does the sea waves keep coming back every time with a roar
Closing my eyes, I feel a serene feeling deep inside
After all life is full of surprises with roller coaster ride
What has gone cannot be brought back
And what lies in store none can predict.
Right from the very instant of entry, exit is certain
It’s just that, in between what we do count’s.
