An ode to a fellow traveler(Poetry Thursday)










We are all travelers on the path divine
We meet, smile for a while,
Fight and then part away
Each one on different paths to go
Some paths meet
For short or for long
But then each path goes a different way
We are all travelers

Fellow travelers leave memories behind
Some weak some strong
Some bad some good
But they are remembered
In the moments of solitude
The distance traveled
And the moments shared
With each one of them
We are all travelers

Looking back
At the journey completed
I wonders how many travelers walked away
Or just crossed the way
Humbling, isn’t it..
There are many paths to go
We are all travelers

With kindness and compassion
And passion
Path can be easier
And the journey smoother
We have a long distance to go
On the path divine
We are all fellow travelers

I love this line the most

"Looking back

i have to say this
"bhale kitani daulat ho ,kitani hi shoharat ho,
log chahe use hi, jo nek aur bhala ho.
usaka hi jeevan safal hota jag me,
jo auro ko bhi sath lekar chala ho!!"
