Its so strange … LIFE!!!!!!

One spends the whole of one’s youth dreaming,

wishing fairy tale stories to happen….nothing does….

youth wanes and age ascends….

and just when you settle down and think,

well lived my life, its nearing twilight,no more dreams to dream…

let me close my eyes and walk into the sunset…

the horizon…where…body hits soil…

and before the soul escapes…someone comes along,

with a sweet smile, deep, innocent eyes like a child……

like a part of a past night’s dream…..

and suddenly during the day

when you are amidst a conversation…

while brewing coffee….kind of awakens and strengthens the sense……

and it all comes back… it comes back…bits and pieces…

intricating a fragile whole…

fuzzy…as the early morning brain….

……jagged as ends of the kitchen table…….

And perhaps this was the butterfly …..

The happiness that sits on your shoulder…..

You turnaround and run …..run to get back to that dream…..

Alas! Oh! Loss…..I find it really was a dream!!!!
