#10. Seven Moons After….

7 moons after

We retrace the path we’d traveled together

To past seasons of falling leaves and cloudy skies

Of new beginnings and nervous laughter

With strangers we’d never met

Now friends we may never forget

A cliché but it does fly

Just see how quickly these 8 moons went by…

7 moons before

If only we knew

That countless sunset later

We’d be standing here

Basking in the glow of old friends meeting anew

Through many a-smile and many a-tear

The light from our hope burying our pain

Revelling in the after-glow again and again

Just see how quickly these 7 moons went by…

 

7 moons now

We still make mistakes along the way

Of things we do and words we say

Yet the glory of it all remains the same

We are made better by our shame

For we learn to have wisdom as a friend

Guiding our paths, leading us till the very end

We learnt a lot in these 7 moons gone by…

 

7 moons tomorrow

Lives colliding, lives intersecting

The sheer mystery, the miracle of a thought

That maybe somewhere, somehow

We were to cross each other’s path

And now, we have these imprints

Engraved on the quilted fabrics of our hearts

So go on dear friends, into the wild

Live your dreams and kick up a storm

A cliché but it does fly

Just see how quickly these times went by

Dear friends, can you believe it?

7 moons of 960 just went by.
