Poem 171 - Time to say goodbye!

As I enter the car looking at my house one last time
Though excited about going to the new house, I was sad that we were leaving this one
As my sister looks too, her head right behind mine
I knew I will remember, it was the house where I had lots of fun

As we all said goodbye and as the car started
The house looked lonely, empty and sad
"Why do you need to go it asked?
Have I done something bad?"

We turned around the corner, and all we could do was remember the house
Memories flashed through my mind
I remembered, how I used to run on the stairs
And climbing the garden trees, everything did rewind

Thinking of it, I felt as if I was there
I felt a tear roll down my cheek
I had stayed there for three years, now
I looked at my sister, even her eyes did leak

Poem 170 - Titanic

A storm, unlucky ship is at sea
As thunder roars and and waves crash
People shout, sailors panic as cracks build upon the ship
People run here and there, there is a sudden water splash

People scared, wondering is it time to say goodbye?
Crew members tell not to panic,not useful, and they are not viable
The ship crashes against a rock, is it a shipwreck?
The ship splits, paint flies, and nothing is stable

So many gasps, as people fall into the hungry sea
Emergency boats are let down, crew members man the oars
People now scared, start screaming and don't stay mute
As people try to jump in boats, unfortunate people fall into the sea in scores

People stare as the last part of the ship sinks
Only a few were saved, families begin to cry
The unpleasant storm now ends, seems to be pleased to have caused so many deaths
Again it's a new day, but people still sad, thinking of the people who did die

Poem 169 - Ashray

Ashray is always there as a friend
So with him - time I like to spend
Happy he is and makes me happy too
Really good friend, friends like him are very few
Always he is there to help anyone
Yet he is a person full of fun
-Gaurang Rao

Dedicated to Ashray, a classmate and a good friend of mine.

Poem 168 - The moon sets without being noticed

Sitting on the sill, looking at each other
Not knowing, under a tree, a little hedgehog is watching the two
Their eyes locked in each others
The sun has set, it is a night that is fresh and new

Romance in the air, as she clutches his hand
A light dance begins, as they sway from side to side
As the love story begins
The hedgehog's eyes are open wide

Both having the pleasure to be with one another
The hedgehog feel's he shouldn't be there
The moon has set it is almost a new day, the love story is not over
Though the dance is over, about the hedgehog they are not aware

But the love story still does not end, as the hedgehog thinks
Will they think of each other till they die?
The hedgehog says it's time to go
And don't you think time just did fly?
