A day I spent like any other,
Talking to my sister across miles,
I was beginning my day, when
She was in shutting down mode.
Reliving childhood, she mentioned.
An idea so delightful, I clutched on,
Just that little thought sowed,
Some seeds of happy in me.
Like so many of the others, ours
Too was a normal, uneventful life.
Growing up was hard, but
Had its share of memorable.
Now looking back, filtering.
What surfaces, what plays in mind
Makes us all who we are, though
maybe not who we want to be.
Setting foot firmly in the present,
Letting go of past, though hard.
We march together into the future.
Allies, we shall be for life!
