Sarah Fatima


How gently time drifts away

Never leaving a trace,

Not a shred of speck is left behind,

Still yearning for those misty days.

I came with a sullen heart,

Leaving with a chirpy soul

The waves all trembling,

Roaring full of memories.

How blissfully had time flown

Never once made me turn around.

Now I retrace my own steps

To gaze at those beautiful days.

How the dust of life

Truly captured my mind

The unending peace

Dazzling the flame.

I look forward to hover someday,

Someday very soon

The giggles and laughers,

And the homely hues.
