I have traveled distance from all I love
I am shoved in a place I least deserve.
Not that life had for me no options in store,
But new horizons I wanted to explore, leaving behind my shore.
Now each day comes in with a new learning for me
New people & experiences around, I take gleefully.
The day just passes in getting all that I wanted,
& the night dawns upon with my cravings unheeded.
Craving for a meal cooked with love & served,
The touch & care of someone I have loved.
Looking at the stars, I remember the days
When I had the friendly stars with me always.
Today the clouds of distance have hid from my eye
The twinkle in her eyes which for me does lie.
But I know the darkness wouldn’t last for long.
The morning bird will soon sing a welcome song.
When life will be bright & would open to me a door
To a place where I can live with all I love-back on my shore.
