yet again i stand at forked lanes......childhood friends n memories left long behind....i move on...................

life has surprises in store for us at every nook and corner.some pleasant while other not soo pleasant ones.in the short span of 18 years of my life i have loved n lost loved ones.they say "it is better to be loved n lost,than never to have been loved at all".i say......why do u have to be loved if u will be lost to sum1 u love?? recently i have lost childhood friends of more than 15 years.we have spent soo many cheerishable moments that our lifes were entwines with one another.now tht they r gone.......there is a vacuum.partings are always sad and disastrous but parting without a word......is even worse a fate but that is wat happened to me.

how change takes places over the years i wonder.with time people,the world,relationships and life changes.friends become acquaintances and strangers become friends.some changes are amendable while most others are not.i fall into the latter category.where my friendship with my childhood friends have changed but it is not amendable.......with time our friendship will fade into oblivion and all that will remain is frayed photographs and hazy memories.but for me my childhood would be precious and the best phase of my entire life.those days of playing cricket in the streets,or goin on picnics on cycles,the slumber parties and the attempt to bake cakes........those tears of agony over first crush..or the joy of getting our first cell phone....................all the memories will remain engraved in my mind for as long as my heart beats.how can one forget their first friends?their childhood?they r priceless and a treasure thats more valuable than all d riches in the world.my friends are not with me now and future too they wont be.with time sms's and phone calls will become lesser and lesser.albums will become faded and slam books will get dusty but the memories will remain fresh from the love,joy and laughter that we have shared................and now with them gone i am left all alone with nothing but a broken heart to heal.but in spite of all this i am happy i know at least i have the memories of having gr8 friends,there are many in life who are not fortunate enough to have good friends in life.atleast i had even for a short period of time.people have far greater problems in life......my problems are just a wave in vast ocean.........

We all dance beneath the merciless sun,with one hand waving free, like phantoms of our own memories.....and our good old tambourine man never returns back to soothe us.In the serene evenings, empires melt into twilight and I get bluesy coz the sky is not gonna crack its poems in naked wonder for me. i am gettin a bit personal here raka,never exchange hot ashes for cool comfort......fight, always fight.
