Tears walked down her dusky cheeks
Not out of the dust that tickled
Her nose while cleaning her room
But… because of the lingering that happened that day!
The old big box placed on the slab got unboxed
And her brain memoir turned its pages back
To the chapter of unforgettable friendship.
Dusting her old note books,
She unwrapped the fossilled little memories.
The scribblings in textbooks
The shapeless designs made during boring lectures
The mini gifts gifted unexpectedly
The labels on them with nicknames!
Like a lice that plays hide and seek in hair
Friends became her memories lingering in the air.
