It is always wonderful to meet my dearest Crescent students from the past. It always turns out to be a proud moment to see them progress in their lives.
Yesterday was one such instance. A dear student Jyotsna Miskeen, now in her 11th grade, knocked at the Crescent door and we walked together on the memory lane.
Sharing with you all a beautiful poem that she dedicated to Crescent and childhood, penned by her last night! Thank you dear Jyotsna.
The innocent childhood
It's all misty and blurr in my memory
There's a glimpse of me, delightful and happy.
The little swing sets and petite slides
There was no concern for wrong or right
When the only concern was a tiny scratch on the arm
And wrapping up in a hug in our mother's arms.
When going to school was so much fun
The teacher's, the benches, no pressure on us.
Our wishes were of ponies and rainbows and butterflies
And impossible dreams in our eyes.
But it's sad that my happy past
Is somewhere blurred in my memory vault
But it's a treasure of a lifetime
That I'll cherish in dreams of mine.
It's my happy place that I often visit
When this growling reality drags me down
I go down in my memory lane
Unlock the treasures stuffed in my brain
And live there until I feel alright
And seldom I'm awake in the night
Thinking, where did my happy past go!?
It's just hiding somewhere, that's all I know...
I'll always be a Crescent pre-schooler :)
