## Learned, Loved And Lost ##

I used to sleep,
In her arms.
I used to weep
To be her charm.
Why did I learn?
To sleep on my own
She put me in bed
I lost her embrace.

I used to stumble,
And look so humble.
I struggled to stand
Holding his hand.
To walk he used to teach,
I lost his care,
The day I walked beyond his reach.

She taught me to read,
To write with speed
Opened a new world
Of stories and songs.
Patted my back
When I was right,
Corrected all my wrongs.
Why did I pass?
Only to leave her
What a teacher she was.

Lived like this
With many dreams
Walked alone
Along the streams.
Moving on
From time to time,
Then he came
Like a new season
Made my laugh
Made me cry,
Gave a reason to live
And nerve to die.
I fell in love
He broke his vow.

Is this what?
Life is all about,
A game of
Triumph and defeat.
With every step
I rose, and lost
The ladder beneath..

People come and go,
But will never stay,
Like a passing cloud
That rains and goes away.
