The happy hours countdown begins!

Courtesy

 Happy hours countdown
Not many days left,  time rolls
Damn this dreaded month

Goodbyes will be told
Tears will be controlled, can i?
Words won't be spoken

Separation stings
Each goes own way, distinct paths 
Memories will haunt

Those smiles in their eyes
Laughter of past surfaces
Tears of joy and gloom

As my moist eyes close 
'I don't wish to see that day' -
Heart whispers to me 




This month marks an end to my college life. The four beautiful years passed by and i dreaded the day i changed my calendar page to May 2012. I have finally entered the month i never wanted to enter. I wished for it to delay. I pray now that the days get longer, hours be added, seconds be infinite and moments be relived. But seems like the days are passing faster than ever. Before i know, i will be packing my bags and picking more memories. Things will never ever be the same. I will miss my friends and all the bittersweet symphonies we created and experienced together. Emotions choke me as i write. I'm left with no more words....


This Haiku is written for Haiku Heights. The prompt for this week is 'HOUR'.
