Creating New

Turning the leaves of my album
I learnt
In a bid to walk with time
I created many new alliances
Irrigating with love & care.
Old relations were snapped
Few left us
Some bid adieu forever
Few were deliberate pull outs
Some dissolved in the air.

I believed
I couldn’t walk in the absence 
Of the people
I started my life with.

Got busy in chasing life
Without looking back.
New hands approached
Replacing old.
Old ones left silently
Snapping the strings.

after walking miles & miles
I find myself
In a crowd of only new faces
Replacing the Old.
Firming my belief
It’s a part of life
Where you part with
Creating spaces for new.

None can deny
Time is the best healer
Time is the best teacher.

      These feelings crop up at the ultimate truth of life, "Death" n when we lose someone near n dear. I lost one of my teacher, day before yesterday (she was relieved from the pain she was in) leaving me emotional.I convey my feelings thru my words.
