The Lost Spring


By Devashish Kumar

Fulfilling my father’s dreams,
I forgot to dream.

Wanting to be the first in everything, 
I forgot to enjoy.

Building a house,
I forgot to make a home. 

Reading about love,
I forgot how to love. 

Meeting new people,
I forgot to make friends.

Wanting too much,
I forgot to offer.

Running to beat time,
I forgot to stay.

Waiting for her, 
I forgot to live.
