It's Today!

The alarm went off.
I got up immediately.
I couldn’t stop smiling,
The day had finally come.
The day I’d been waiting for so long,
The day I was looking forward to
Ever since I was a child.
I’d dreamed of this day, so many times.

Years back, I remember listening to Grandpa,
His stories about his work and travel.
Listening to him and seeing dad at work,
One day I knew I would work like them.
I promised I’d get one of those leather cases
Just like Grandpa and My dad,
For my “Office”, for my first job,
Irrespective of what/where the job was.

The day has indeed come.
It has been a long wait;
But it seems it all happened so fast.
With her ever radiant smile,
Mom gave me my coffee.
I Came to the balcony and sat on my swing
Relishing my coffee, with the wind.

The sun rays and then gentle breeze
Made me feel so much at peace.
The atmosphere was so serene
My mind was in a tranquil state.
All of a sudden, I realized,
How beautiful everything was.
Tress bending towards me,
Flowers swaying towards me,
God was wishing me luck, probably.

I missed both my Granddads.
How proud they would’ve been
To see their little one, go for work.
Praying and seeking their blessings,
I set off, for the first day of my career.
New place, new atmosphere,
New friends, a new world altogether
Surprises lie hidden.
The sun is rising in my Life.
Looking forward to everything.

    Very True. Being the youngest in the set, I was pampered so much and spoilt for choice. The impact which they have on me, is tremendous.

    They are the best. Completely Agree.
