…And the End Comes Too Soon



A college friend comes visiting by
Gifts, husband and kids in tow
Surprising me as I slept.
We party through the night and party hard
Many strangers I can see
One is rude yet the others are friendly
But how can all this be true…!?!
Tired I trudge my washroom
To have a shower
But everything changes even there
Familiar surrounding I don’t see
Old stuff replaced by latest gadgets
That I fumbled to operate
For shampoo, I kept finding a shaving cream
The most irritating thing that could be…
Bizarre things happen with me
And I cannot fathom why
My dead kitten comes to life
Clinging and cuddling it purrs
A lame wolf saunters in my fence
Looking for an easy prey
As I scream for help
My dogs come crashing in and make beeline
For the wolf chasing him out of my premises
I’m so glad to have them back
For I had lost them to death
One nineteen and the other seven years ago!!
As I enjoy their company and cuddles
I’m shaken up by my shoulders by unseen hands
And a voice calling out from somewhere far
“Get up, get up, have your tea, it’s getting cold!!”
And then with a jolt, I come back to reality
It was all a dream…!!
A funny, weird, bizarre dream where
Winds from the past were
Securing things of desire at last
Where the loved ones long dead came back to life…
