लबरेज़ था जब, तो आते थे कई यार मश्कें लिए हुए .
प्यासा हूँ आज, तो मसरूफ़ हैं सब ही कहीं -कहीं !
Many used to come with pitchers full , when satiated was I.
Am thirsty today, but all are busy, somewhere or the other!
They used to adore, claiming to be lovers, when I was at the prime,
All have, however, found other interests when I need them most today!
This verse has although been written in first person, and obviously on myself, but it universally applies to a man, a woman, a flowering plant, a fruit bearing tree, a cow, a dog, a horse, and even to inanimate objects like a car, a house or a computer!
Life is like that darlingsJ

Lovely lines. The true value of a person, thing, memory is what is left after superficialities and exchanges are stripped off. One can pine or one can move on.ReplyDelete

Actually members of each age group like to hob-nob with each other.When we grow old our peers too have grown & scattered or grown weak or simply disgusted with life.A few are left who circulate & help each other.Such is life.ReplyDelete
