Theme: Change

After Coming Back

There used to be a row of toys here,
And the walls used to be white,
This girl was a little one,
And it all was a different sight!

After many long years
I come back here,
Changed is almost everything that to my heart
I used to hold dear -
The girl said she now goes to college,
Her hair is now long and styled;
Hearing that I had a child she would still be,
She did not laugh just smiled!

I asked her about the colour of the walls,
She said "Changed by time";
I asked her about the toys,
She said "Then I was not even nine!"
"You were six then" I reminded her,
"And now three times that" she said;
On her bed I found a love novel,
A mobile phone and a flower laid...

One thing I found is still same in her -
She still dislikes hot food!
Another thing that in her has remained still -
She always smiles be in whatever mood!

Days have passed, many thimgs have changed,
But a few things that still remain
Are what make me feel
That the near and dears I had left behind and gone,
Are here, and are near to me still!
