Who?

Who?

We kept walking along the isolated parts of the shore and an ancient house welcomed us. It looked spooky and I just wanted to return. But Tom wouldn’t agree. The house though old looked strong. There was a cabinet which had a lot of strange stuff. While Tom was still busy inspecting the items, I turned around and saw a man. “Finally you are back!”, […]

The girl outside the train

The girl outside the train

It was the best part of my daily routine. I used to wait eagerly to see you for that one glimpse of yours would make my day. You looked beautiful and the early morning rays of the sun only made it better. The only part of the hour long journey that I liked was when the train stopped near your station. You wouldn’t get into […]

Awaiting your return

It was one of the happiest days, When I knew that within me you were alive. Everyone saw that glow on my face, When I waited patiently for you to arrive.   When you arrived, I loved to hold you tight, I waited to hear you call me Mom!

From darkness to light

From darkness to light

Things around me don’t seem to go my way, For it all looks dark and gloomy, And all my hope seems to fade away.   It is so dark that I cannot see, The path that I am walking on. And I don’t know if I am free!   I try to find my way in the dark, But I stumble, I fall. Will I […]

Home coming

Home coming

She lit the lamps though it wasn’t dark. She’d prepared all his favourite dishes and had meticulously arranged them on the table the way he liked it. Tonight was special. She was going to see him after so long! She waited patiently while pouring more oil into the lamps to keep them burning. Eventually, the food went cold, the wind blew off the lamps. She […]

Promises

Promises

You promised someone that there was something that you’d do for them and then you worked on it and ensured that they had what they wanted. May be to finish that project on time or may be help someone with something you knew? Someday you promised someone that you would meet them. It was your only day off from work but you met them!

The birthday gift

The birthday gift

Both of them searched every corner of the house with the hope of finding some money. The old clothes, old drawers and cupboards were dusted and thoroughly searched, but with no luck. “What do we do? We have no money for her gift.”, he said. “It is okay, she’ll understand dear”, she tried to calm him down. “But it is her 10th birthday. And as […]
