Memories Are Fresh

Preface

Parting is painful. Still, people separate from each other. Even after the parting, memories remain and sometimes they ramain there for a life time as fresh as the scent of fresh flowers. This poem is inspired by those thoughts.

Memories are fresh

We parted our ways,
Under the blazing sun rays.
There was no guilt,
There was no regret.

Each to start on its own,
Like a stringless kite flown.
There was no path,
There was no secret.

It was the only recourse,
Under the vehement force.
There was no option,
There was no choice.

Its old story,
But memories are fresh.
There is no mirror,
There is no image.

Endnote

Parting is the last resort but due to circumstances in our lives we go for it. It does not end there as memories sustain for a long and make us to remember those compulsions under which we separated.

Bill , thanks for your comments. In aging the recent memories get faded and sometimes deleted while the old ones remain intact. It happens with everyone getting old and is known as the condition of minor amnesia or recent memory loss.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 27, 2020:

Oddly I have clear memories of many things which happened sixty years ago, but recalling clearly last week is a problem. :) Perhaps that's just old age. Anyway, I always enjoy your reflections.

DreamerMeg, you are absolutely right. It is very difficult to forget. Thanks a lot for your comment and visit.

Mitara, thanks a lot. Really appreciate.

DreamerMeg from Northern Ireland on March 12, 2020:

Yes, even if we part in anger from someone, their effects can last a lifetime in us, so that we may never be truly free, even if we want.

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 12, 2020:

It’s sad you couldn’t make the relationship work.

Mitara N from South Africa on March 12, 2020:

Raymond, I visited Holland in 2009. I still remember the low land bounded by sea and people commuting on cycles. The landscape is fresh in my memory. It was something unique that we did not see elsewhere in Europe.

Thanks for your comment from the place I still see when I close my eyes.

Raymond Philippe from The Netherlands on March 12, 2020:

Memories are fresh. What a beautiful way to put that.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 12, 2020:

memories are what sustains us as we travel life's journey. Your poem conveys that perfectly.

Oh, Eric, you have much supplemented my theme. Thanks for your elaborate comment and visit. Highly appreciate.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 12, 2020:

Well done. This is a good concept to explore and talk about. Personally I like memories and dreams. My ex-wife and I have a good relationship, still based in love. (3 adult children) My wife finally accepts that and treats my 3 as her own. My ex just dotes of my youngest.

All that on framing the memories by looking for the love and the good.

Lorna, thanks for your lovely expressions. Highly appreciate.

Manatita44, thanks for your detailed explanations about parting and merging finally in Godhead. Your writings are encouragement for many writers including me. I profoundly thank you for sparing your valuable time.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on March 12, 2020:

Liz, thanks a lot for your nice comment. Appreciate.

Lorna Lamon on March 12, 2020:

It's always good to look back and remember the good times. This poem touches the heart Umesh - lovely.

manatita44 from london on March 12, 2020:

A very balanced and sensible approach to the whole thing. The soul is always alone, although the physical mind may not necessarily know this. It comes from God, is in isolation and on its way back to the Godhead. Life is a series of experiences to assist the journey.

Sooner or later, in one or more lifetimes, we will part from everything to merge with God. The irony is that on the day we blend in God, we will actually blend in everything else. Nice take on memories and passing.

Liz Westwood from UK on March 12, 2020:

You capture the emotions of this life event well in your poem.
