There she is on her rock of thinking
Looking afar into the vast skies
Eyes glazed with emotions, heart heavy with gratitude
A moment to brood, a thought to elate
Minutes of precious moments
Hours of conversations now and then
Months of colors spraying the palette 
Years of memories etched on the walls
Of losses, regrets and pain
Of hope, courage and love
Stories cannot be escaped but lived
Histories cannot be changed but learnt
And a present says move on…..
No place to fester worries, 
Time to hold hands to connect…again
To not let go….this time!
