A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Ode – I


If it could be like this

You and me and happiness
till past
Eternity.If it didn’t have to be
just an interlude
in the misty, nebulous
world of dreams!

If only all this
were true-
that you’re still with me
walking this road together…

I miss you, my friend.
The part of me that you were
Will always be yours..
Till that promised

Past Eternity…

10 December, ’85

  15. Beautiful as ever! 1985? My God, I wasn’t even in this world! This is a truly ‘out-of-the-world’ poem! Seriously, it’s very well written, just touches your soul. Friends are such an important part of our lives, and somewhere we realize their true worth only after they leave, I can identify with this beautifully! I miss my school friends badly, and this poem makes me miss them more…:|
