Walking down the memory lane,

Filled with beauty and also pain.

Trying to find a specific time,

Was a lot harder than his last climb.

And yet, he remembered almost everything,

‘Twas a gift, along with which, a curse did it bring.

Forgetting his miseries was nigh impossible,

Moving on, equally problematical.

But on the positive side, 

Sometimes, ‘twas a pleasant ride.

Good memories were also recollected,

Helped him a lot when he was dejected.

Every page of the memory book, at his disposal,

In his past, he was an immortal.

In life, people and situations were no more,

But in mind, they were there, just like before.

“Funny thing it is.” his memory, he thought,

In his space like mind, he was the only astronaut.

    Lovely… What do you mean by ‘his last climb’ in the line “Was a lot harder than his last climb”? Just curious.

      thank you.. 🙂
      oh i meant it as him being a guy who climbs mountains. u know like an adventurer.
      And locating a specific memory was tougher than climbing mountains.
      Sorry for not being that clear..haha.. 😀

        Oh.. I thought it was some hardship he crossed or something. But I was wondering why you used the word climb, specifically. That’s why I asked to clarify. You write wonderfully, Varun.

          hehe.. thank you. but I’m still a novice trying harder to write better.
          I saw your writings too and it’s really beautiful.
