Highways and by-ways offered me always
The peace of mind in my formative years-
But now, they are in memory lanes
With feebleness of voice and cheers!
Through the arduous paths of life,
My ageless mind seems to linger or graze-
And delves into the cacophony or doldrums,
Undefined in any language or phrase!
Such conditions evoke reflective feelings,
And I am not an exception from it for sure-
'Cause of my search for a vehicle of reflection,
Regardless of submerged pains I have to endure!
Holiday season is right around the corner,
And serves as a blatant reminder-
Of emotional rewards and family links
To act or react as a pathfinder!
So, I wish you the best to share and reflect
On the challenges of the past year-
And remember those without a family,
Or people at war with agonized trail of tear!
May the kindness and generosity you feel
In this joyous holiday season
Be the wiper of tears of less fortunate,
And continue as the candid reason!!
