Life is a poem in itself

Youth Born. A new book to open Hundred blank pages of promises A life yet to write. Elder Awaken. Find the life has taken flight Provide only slightly time To leave behind a mark, a footprint. Dead Silence. Last word had written. A poem of life framed in memories The journey has ended.

    I feel that PS has become such a sanctuary for me, Drake. Though I'm not writing, I always spent time every day to read couples of poems. Oh you made me smile here.. its glad to know I've been missed. *hug*
