Last mile

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Long journey, on a winding road
Mood swings, pendulum moves
Reflects the scene been seen
Who are you with, where one has been
Drum beats, hearts pump
Jubilation and million songs
Want this journey to prolong
Sorrows of some when want to share
Eyes shed tears, melancholy you hear
Distances appear, too much, hard to bear
Tryst in mind, sparrows sing sweet
songs of longing, and impending meet
possibilities endless, fly on your feet
All such journeys end one way or another
destinations you reach, memories you gather
further and further, until reaching the last mile
