He just left

He just left

As I look back, I

keep wondering whether he

really loved me

 

We started as friends

in school, chit-chatting away

for hours on end

 

He always made it

a point to do what he could

Water is a scarce resource

supporting cacti

When bridges formed connections

The bridge connected

continents as people moved

back and forth each day

 

But it had been a

Cycle of Seasons

Cycle of Seasons

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.

While spring is the time for new plans to look forward to,

Summer is the time for so many outdoor activities.

While autumn is the time when colours and seasons change,

Winter is the time for getting in the warmth and spending time with family around the fireplace.

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.
