Heart thumping hard,
As she passed familiar places,
Listening to her favourite songs,
Reminiscing the old times,
The wholesome talks,
And the comfortable silences.
Was it not true,
The future that she envisioned,
Soon became the past,
Tears rolling down,
Giving way to secret emotions,
Tumbling one after the another.
But gathering herself just in time,
She got up once again,
For being brave was the only choice,
Testing her strength in the hard times,
Her heart and her mind uniting,
As she stood tall and endured.
