Gone are the daysWhen the school reopened in June,And we settled in our new desks and benches.
Gone are the daysWhen we queued up in book depot,And got our new books and notes.
Gone are the daysWhen we wanted two Sundays and no Mondays, yetManaged to line up daily for the morning prayers.
Gone are the daysWhen we chased one another in the corridors in Intervals, And returned to the classrooms drenched in sweat.
Gone are the daysWhen we had lunch in classrooms, corridors,Playgrounds, under the trees and even in cycle sheds.
Gone are the daysWhen a single P.T. period in the week's Time Table, Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons.
Gone are the daysOf fights but no conspiracies,Of Competitions but seldom jealousy.
Gone are the daysWhen we used to watch Live Cricket telecast,In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks.
Gone are the daysWhen few rushed at 5:30 to"Conquer" window seats in our School bus.
Gone are the daysOf Sports Day, and the annual School Day, And the one-month long preparations for them.
Gone are the daysOf the stressful Quarterly, Half Yearly and Annual Exams,And the most enjoyed holidays after them.
Gone are the daysWe learnt, we enjoyed, we played, we won, we lost, We laughed, we cried, we fought, we thought.
Gone are the daysWith so much fun in them, so many friends,So much experience, all this and more.
Gone are the daysBut not the memories, which will beLingering in our hearts for ever and ever andEver and ever and Ever.
I hope you went back to your Golden Old days..........
For a while..........as I DID!!
