Eternal Memories

Why should I make a journey through my memories? But, I can't ignore it.I found so much colours and flavours in those days-yeah-my schooldays! And I feel so sad now because they have all now creeped to the pages of memories! Still I can feel its rhythm, sweetness, brightness, innocence!
And now let me jot down some of its flavours....some shades of my schooldays from my memories....


The days of 'innocent' smiles,
the moments of light murmurings,
the hours of 'sweet revenges' and 'dark challenges'.

The 'bitter' struggles in 'friendship',
The busy gatherings-
sharing of 'joy and pain'!

Even the 'simplest'
ray of feelings,
the darkest peak of emotions!

The hollow shouts and quarrels
still echo along the pavements of my 'memories';
through the corridor of my mind!

Missing those schooldays
can't weaken the impact!
'But once pasted in mind,
they might hurt sometimes! '

Long years of life,
yet to be faced.
And after the hurdles, triumphs
those may be mere spots;
but still they are
'ETERNAL MEMORIES'!
