Imprints in the Sands of Time

To the people we meet in the journey of our lives…

Though fleeting is the moment
Heartfelt is it’s intensity 
and such is it’s profoundness
It leaves an inherent mark
For years..maybe forever
Which even time can’t erase

Though brief is the rendezvous
unfathomable is the magic
Some bonds are felt, not explained
It’s beyond all reasoning
and devoid of any logic

Realization dawns
Only after they’ve long gone
Seldom, many a moons later
do we envisage the fact
What these meetings, meant to us
And how deep, was their impact.

A casual fling, was it
A compendious encounter
Or be it a tryst with friend
But in our mind today
the poignant question still remains
Why is everything so transient
Are all good things ephemeral?
Do really come to an end?

And finally, one fine day
When we have a serene moment
to sit back, ponder and rewind
Do we realize how deep
they’ve embedded their imprints
on our soul and our minds !
