I was still a teen when I first stepped in
the grand old weary college buildin’
Skeptic thoughts ran through my veins
Thinking for what would happen hence
What is in there, for me waiting;
Yet the ambiguity was equally thrilling.
Ohh yes those days, thrill was easy to find
Meeting a hundred new people was first of the kind.
And in a time when friendship has lost its humane charm
I saw these people, greeting each other with open arm.
The dawn of something big was being marked
And with every new marking, time magically passed.
Sitting on the slab with a cup of tea
Idle for hours and laughter for free
Or dancing in public at the fresher’s party
Everything was so much new for me
The startup business idea which sparked over a TT game
Or narrating an amateur framed film-story without any shame
1st smoke, 1st job and many heartbreak’s silent sobs
Yes the college only has nurtured all of them.
Amidst all these one day I was twenty
And the college wished me with the people joining in plenty
The joy I felt of being someone special for one day
Yes there were gratitude hidden behind that I could not say.
Soon a time came, when being in home felt boring
And every day we surely had some reason for college going
An uncanny grace used to attract us and with time slowly
the people and the building became the part of an extended family.
In a world where happiness is measured with happenings
The college had a subtle definition of finding pleasure
While lakhs were spent to have an annual cultural college evening,
Here a normal college day used to be more eventful in nature.
And now today when its time to say Adios
I could not figure out what exactly will I miss the most.
Is it the college and with all the boring lectures?
Or the friends made here, who will stay I know, forever.
A new life awaits which will open new doors for better future
Yes I had always craved for this only forever.
Then why is this blank feeling which is making me low?
The uncertainty of the greater prospects is also not thrilling me now.
Is it for because I am missing my college days?
Or because I realized no good thing forever stays.
