Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Some bonds are forever…

Today, they meet after a decade

a whiff of nostalgia sweeps across

as they go on a pilgrimage, back into time

to their days at college.

Popularly known as the gang of feisty four.

they scour memories that drifted into oblivion

fill in the blanks to the present,

unburden their hearts, laying it bare.

Time stands still as unbridled laughter fills the night

their repertoire of unending chatter continues

as the eyes cloud with emotional euphoria.

They commemorate the growth of kindred spirit

celebrating the soul of their friendship!

    Your poem took me back to numerous reunions I’ve had with my besties over the years. It’s exams you wrote. Laughing, talking and reminiscing all night. Thanks for joining in with this lovely poem.

    This is what friendship is all about. So beautiful and wonderful poem, Radhika. My school friends and we met after 40 years and we have not been separated from that time on and feels so good.
