#299 Terminal

Terminal

Standing at the terminal numbered two
I looked outside from my queue
And questioned myself
Why is departure always painful?

I recalled how exactly ten days back
I returned to home from work
I was excited beyond explanation
I was sure about the reason.

I started philosophising life
As its phases are like these terminals
Which may excite or sadden us
Depending upon their arrival or departure.

Here came the bus to board passengers
After collecting my tickets
I bid an adieu to the place
Which brought me up as a child.

    1. Right! I agree. It has been years since I left my home but every time I depart, I depart with moist eyes and heavy heart. Thanks for reading it.
