i walked
and then i ran down
the memory lane
i brushed past
some of my favorite moments
sane and insane

i smelt
some delicious food
that i now crave for
i remembered
those who cooked it
those i somewhat cared for

i flipped through
the numerous books
that i spent half of my salary on
i wondered
which shelf of which house
they’re sleeping on

i thought about
the blue cell phone
the first one that i bought
the one who i lost
owing to my carelessness
and had me distraught

i met those
special people
who changed my life
they were strangers
who taught me how to handle
the edge of a knife

i felt dad’s hugs
and grandpa
my ultimate pamperer
i wished
i could stay back here in time
for some more time, if not forever
