Embracing the world with positive creativity since Sept 2007.
Upon seeing a class picture
Upon seeing a decade-and-one-old photograph
Where I am one of the shy stars
Where the innocent faces feel the space
Where the focal point is a motherly mentor
This heart pulsates with
The singing gratefulness
And the lolling longing.
And so I feel thankful
That I had that bliss
Reminiscing, Recalling, Remembering:
Friends, adviser, classmates
With the dazzling dreams
With the awe-inspiring aspirations
And with the present peer’s existence.
So gleaming gratitude gaits
Even runs along these thoughts
Of comrades who now stroll in Singapore, or perhaps, Saudi?
Of a classmate who went ahead to Hades or, hopefully, Heaven
Of the class adviser who now shares with her students’ successes
Of a possible get-together
O, God, gratias, gratias, gratias!
