Ridhima Mehrotra


New Year


Sitting idle, staring at the moon
Thinking about the past which has gone
And the future which is yet to come
And suddenly, I realized
The year is coming to an end
The year which has been such a good friend
A philosopher, a guide
The year has surely been a roller coaster ride

In a few days, New Year will begin
Bringing with it new hopes and aspirations
But accompanying it would be a grief of separation

Looking back and introspecting
I can visualize every day from the beginning
This year,
I laughed and I cried
I loved and I fought
I sang and I danced
Many new developments occurred
I became a year older
Learnt new methods
Changed a few habits
Developed a different outlook towards life

If there have been bright days, so there have been rainy days too
If I have been cheerful then I have been gloomy too
If I have been mischievous then I have been serious too
If someone has hurt me then someone else has healed it too
If I have shouted at someone then I have smiled at someone too

Tears roll down my cheeks thinking about its end
And more so, when I'll have to start all over again
A new year, a new beginning
Yes, I agree that change is inevitable
But is it easy to forget the past?
