I ,once ,happen to meet TIME on the way ,
We looked at each other intently for hours ,
Oblivious of the warm tears rolling down our cheeks ,
But some how we both got hold of ourselves ,
Hugged each other hard as if to choke each other ,
Then ,finally TIME pushed a little away
Had a good look at me ,
Asked what had become of me ,whose
Laughter made everybody's day!
Said TIME ,' Your sad eyes are killing me!'
,What hath become you ?"
So TIME took my hands in hers ,caressed my cheeks ,
Just then my whole body shivered ,
With the warmth and affection ,
I caught hold of TIME ,as scared to loose it again !
Bared my heart out to TIME ,
She laughed at me ,I felt hurt !!
How dare she ?
TIME said ,Do you know how many times I have been hurt ?
Before you even existed ?
Those TIMES are gone !!
And I let them go ,
Felt the pinch in my heart everytime I let them go ,"
Dear ! I don't want to remember those TIMES ,
Which you have been nurturing since that day you were hurt ,
But Dear ! Think how hurt and in pain I must be?
coz you have kept the pain alive !
Please let me free ,
Let me feel the fresh air
And breathe !!
Hearing these words ,
Suddenly, awareness shook me from top to bottom
And I reluctantly loosened my grip
TIME flew in the clouds,
Like a child with wings ,
And Thanked me again and again!
And felt a cool breeze kissed my cheeks!
