The redolent air fills my senses
Sharpens my longing
For the bygone days
The past beckons
With beguiling memories
If only, stepping back was easy!
I stand hesitating
The future looks daunting
But has to be met
My fears, I know, are baseless
Without any substance
Yet have the power to arrest me
It is a leap of faith that I have to take
So I shut the door behind me firmly
And move ahead.
