“I am fine”
i convinced all but me;
’cause deep within i knew
leaving was last thing i ever wished –
the friends ,the inspiration , the love,
the tease ,the warm hugs and celebrations ;
where else would some one await
to hear me scold and yell at them,
or poke me when i fell silent,
where else would i find parcel of joys
being delivered all day and night ?
“I will be fine”
i told the few concerned eyes
and turned away,
so tears i could hide
that i knew would never run dry
even if new smiles would adorn the eyes,
my first home will be special always
and the call to return will never let
the soul heal,from the cuts of time ..
Written for Month of the year challenge # 2 (November)
It was november’09 when I had to leave a dear set of people and not move on but move back in life. Even though I am still in touch with few of those people, I miss the collective fun we had for about a year ! God bless those gems wherever they are.
