HomeSick Home

For years, I have been away from home. I come and go at my own accord. This year seems a bit different. Eight months have made me homesick, wanting my longest vacation to never end! But, it is what it is!

But, I dare not open the door this time. Scanning around for the last time, the silence like the turbulent sea broke against my ear and I lose a part of myself in those memories of cheerful laughter and fun.

I calm myself, smile at my kin and step out. Goodbye, my dear home.

        I can understand that Shivani. It is tough for all just now.

        Do try to make some changes within the gambit of the routine. Meditate a little. This helps

        Shall pray for you πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
