How did Diwali rush by so fast? 
Its almost the end of 2013. I don’t know if I am ready to let go yet! *sad face* 
Take a look at the pictures below while I go sulk for a bit!
Cheery smiles
Pretty prints
Colors galore
New year hints!

A forgotten prayer
A wishful thought
A mumbled hope 
A battle fought

Lighting up the darkness
Sparkling in the glow
The impending prayer
tangled in the flow

There is fire in my eyes
in my heart, in my soul
A burning desire,
paves the path to my goal.

Shadows of the past
Lost in the present
A glimpse of the future
A promise that is kept

Stormy nights
Etched in the mind
Waves of thoughts 
that leave you in a bind

Cold gentle breeze
And smiles for some
Warm love awaits
For whenever you come
A breath of wind
whispers in the trees
Four words spoken
and time shall freeze 

One step forward
A skip and a hop
In no time at all
You shall be at the top!
