Farewell


Farewell

2020 taught us many things;
And freedom wasn’t one of them
Be it physical or mental
Everyone fought their captors..
Some succumbed, some overcame,
The hurdles meant to terminate them
Few gained profits, many bore losses
For some, it was the beginning
Others turned the page,
Hoping this chapter is sealed for life
Many left our side, few covered the glamour
Drifted to someplace unknown to mankind
Taught us the value of things, big and small
Every tiny bit that makes up life
Taught us the uncertainty of time,
To live in the present, for the future
Brings what surprises, we don’t know
To love those, dear to us, and cherish
Memories of the past, lost in the times
That change is inevitable, we humans
Can adapt in ways good or bad
As the date changed, I wish
For change, where the old normal,
Returns with reunions and parties
Trips with friends and holidays with family
With school bells and college bunks
Long hand shakes and warm hugs
I wish not for 1 year, but 365 days,
365 opportunities, countless moments
Of happiness, celebrations without reasons
‘Cause that’s what counts, isn’t it?
When we tally our book of life..
Welcoming the new year, with
Hope and expectations, as we
Proceed to a new chapter in life
To the year, who taught me many things
With no hatred in my heart, I bid you Farewell...
