my pic here....

And this was me, once!! That glowing cheek

Was mine, those pleasure sparkling eyes, that brow

Was mine. Coming twenty years

Have crafted strange variations! Of the buddies n kiths

Who once appraised all miniatures,

And loved it for its semblance, some are gone

To their last homes, and some estranged.

But still these shades remain unchanged

Which wear a look of innocence and infancy.

Search of what I was, always

Goes in vain, wherein that mild face is lost

In my features today.

May be this picture was designed to be ornamented

Like this, to shine amid this world’s motley crowd,

To be cherished by me and

Honored by this solitary song….
