The Valley Of Life

I miss those days,
Days which are old,
Feeble and weak now.
Fresh in my memory,
Is an era of my city.
When the time went slow.

I miss the cruel winter wind,
Which devoid me the feeling of my hand.
I miss the summer sun,
Which ripened the fruits on our trees.
A time when Valley meant life.

The city which I am talking about,
No longer exists.
Or if it does,
Like a dismayed friend,
The punishment persists.

I remember the streams,
Spread like veins of the city.
Now hiding in obscurity,
Due to our priorities, I pity.

I miss the tree,
Which Stood proudly unhindered.
The shade, the fruit, the feel
But most importantly, the Love it rendered.

I adored the thought of a mall in my city,
In the naivety of my adolescence.
Today I understand that
A walk in Paltan has a totally different essence.

Sky high buildings were a fantasy then,
But never knew the price of them.
Today the spectacle of mountains,
Is much more precious a gem.

I miss the Chai Wala,
who had nothing but a shed.
The fragrance of first rain,
And that combination of Omellete and Bread.

I yearn for the Sight of Old Men walking,
Vehicles don’t really have that class.
The sight of Old Gentleman was appealing,
The scene of an Audi is simply crass.

I miss Cycling down Rajpur with my hands in the air,
The sense of adventure was so overwhelming.
Today the idea of cycling normally,
Is in itself very daring.

I wish that the time wouldn’t have changed,
I wish the time had stood still.
The way it was then.
For more than the ruined memories of my childhood,
I grieve on this city that lies ill.

Doon as I remember it to be,
Was a place for everyone to see.
Today it’s just an exhibitionist’s animal,
Willing to again be free.

I along with the lovers of the past,
Are ready to again strive,
To regain a place to which we referred to as
The Valley Of Life.
