We were back after two decades in those familiar surroundings
Much had changed, yet nobody felt out of place
Such was the charisma of ‘College Reunion’ that nobody was too busy to miss.
The once loved faces and figures were transformed by wrinkles and pot bellies
Yet, no one felt the need to hide or a reason to point.
The evening that had started with an awkward ‘hello’, soon gave way
to loud laughs, nostalgic memories, back-slaps and continuous chatter
The college queen of yester-years was today a chic kitty party diva
The secret crushes of yesterday, shared a hearty laugh and swapped family mantra
The first benchers seemed disenchanted in their secure governement jobs
The smart ones shared their corporate growth with anyone who cared
And it was the back-benchers who spoke about investment, entrepreneurship and profits.
The bitter foes of past had patched up and once passionate lovers were amicable strangers today
Yes, much had changed, yet today was special.
Coz, the unforgettable past and the beautiful future converged on the borders of today as we took a trip down the memory lane
