The colors of friendship fade away,
The bright white and vibrant black grays away.
Everything that was not untold earlier
Have now become the unknown tear,
All the li’l talks now seem as a fear
Eventually, we are the ones who have everything to bear.
The day we met
Was an unforgettable bet,
Years passed in time’s test
Walking down the memory lane, even though our eyes are wet
But no chance to see each other we get.
Remembering the mischievous days
All the good & bad times and moments together we had prayed,
Everything will wash off on sprinkle off few busy days.
There come times when we are all alone and astray.
And now, though we hardly get chance to talk
We reminisce those long walks,
In the backyard of those memories flash
Of which no treasures of the World would encash.
There could be nothing that would fade away,
Just as black and white could be separated as hay.
Life has miseries
Life has memories,
All this while we choose to pick up good experiences
And enjoy Life’s small joys and nuances.
One thing resonates: All shades are beautiful
Gray could, maybe, has the reason for being dutiful,
Just mix the white- as brighter it is
Just mix the black- darker it is
And it becomes so easy to balance the gray.
This shade comes with a guide: the stronger you stay
The more dissolvable is your gray.
Living life in a happy way
Cherishing memories that even had dismay
You walk away from the Gray.
Then distances don’t matter, as you are only a talk away
And there will be no room for gray,
Hopes of joy floods the sadness away
As only happiness spreads throughout the way.
The white is bright and black is vibrant,
And the gray has taken deep down silent.
