Somewhere bell is ringing,
Its sound reverberating through air,
Reaching my heart, my being,
Softly touching, slowly awakening...

Memories come flooding to me
Of joyous days gone by
When the bell announced time
To rush home from school,
When it beckoned me to temple,
When it signalled arrival of a train.

No bell rings now,
No sound floats in air,
Silence must replace music now,
I am no longer a child.


How do we know said...

you are no longer a child, but silence does not have to replace the music. :) All of our tomorrows are contained in our yesterdays.

How do we know said...

oh but there are bells! Chime sound of a WhatsApp joke from the child, or the grandchild, the doorbell, the facebook notifications... just a different kind of chiming..
