Always anticipating,
always wishing,
always longing, and ..
As if heard by the Divine
with full of praise and thanks it happened.
The past and the present together embraced, kissed, and united,
Good memories nurtured, relived, shared, kept, and built unceasingly.
Face and with new found courage…. rose up from unpleasant ones.
Emerging triumphant now.
Celebrating life not just us but with those not there…
we were missing, but rejoicing for we know we are content we have you still.
sharing the same spirit we are thankful, for having you, and making us live the moment with all praise and thanks to the Almighty.

Mount Carmel High School Batch 1976 just concluded a birthday celebration of its October celebrants..at Pansol Hotspring on October 16,2010. It is for them that I  dedicate this poem and people who can relate with it. Thank you followers..
