Poets & Poetry


Last day of school and the last ‘tiffin time’ we were going through
The bell rang but no one moved.

Tears rolled down cheeks and hearts sank deep
Everyone wished that time should cease
But now we realized that it went with full speed.

Tiffins were empty and minds full of memories
Flashed by one by one, but see, there is still that old brown tree!

We promised to never break this friendship chain
But reality was confused and asked: “Are we going to meet again?”

From bags on shoulders and bottles around necks
To farewell gifts kept on our desks.
Moments were temporary but memories last forever…
