Winds of Seperation

PicsArt_1420631898311

 Couple of weeks back, as a part of Christmas celebrations my daughter’s school had organised a lot of competitions for students and encouraged them to take part in as many as possible. My daughter took part in four or five and one of them was “Poetry Competition”. The topic was ‘Separation’ and the students had to submit one original entry. They were allowed to take help from their family.And my dear girl remembers all of this on the eve of the competition. Both of us sat down, raked our brains, collected our thoughts and rummaged through ideas and finally came up with this poem


                   Winds of Separation

 Winds of Separation

Have blown us apart.

Ten years of togetherness

I will hold close to my heart.

 

Been kids, adolescents and teenagers

We have grown up together.

Seen the rains, the winters and summers

Shared books and secrets come every weather.

Still a toddler separated from my mother

When I stepped into my Alma Mater, face writ with fear

You sat amongst  the bawling kids, as calm as ever

I knew I found my fidus Achates when you wiped my tear.

Hand in hand, saving each other’s hide

Life’s little hurdles, we would smilingly tide.

All through the years, in unison we played

Our  roles of best friend, philosopher and guide.

 

Alas! Destiny plays its own part

Carved mischievously, for each her own path

Agony of separation brimming four eyes

The hand that wiped the tears will now unwillingly depart.

 

Sun may never shine the same

Paths may never cross again

Life played an unfair game

We will never laugh our way home, on puddles in the rain.

 

But isn’t this what life is all about

Cherishing the memories, celebrating the friendship

Than submerging in pain or wallowing in doubt

Winds of separation left behind a lesson well taught.

The sketches and artwork was done by my girl and the poem was written with my help.

And this is what happened:
