At night, as she walked along the shore,
She would stop at the edge;
Cast a straight glance across the boundary,
and let the shudders touch her tiny feet.
Immersed in deep thoughts
she was, unaware and uncanny.
It was her way to bear up, thus she believed,
although, never understood, never obliged, by any.
Some days went by thus,
Until one day, she reached a place
Dumbfounded, she stood still,
Letting her eyes fixed on – all that it craved for.
Slowly, gradually, with time,
She thought she went.
But Alas! She could no longer keep pace
With time, that moved faster than she could reach.
Thus, in a gentle swift,
all was washed away,
but she knows, it’s time to begin again,
and it’s the only way!
