    This one is actually not new at all! I wrote this poem back in my school days and for some reason, I never wrote another one until the COVID pandemic started. That's a gap of almost two decades! For some reason, I just stopped writing. Most of the poems I wrote back then got lost over time, except this one...This last one remained with my mother.

    I modified and edited it slightly for elaboration, but kept the main theme, body and title the same as before, since I felt I should keep it the way it was originally composed. Hope you enjoy reading this piece from my archive.

    I thought of adding it to my poetry compilation before going into hibernation once again. Sadly, they removed the comment box before I could post this one... My 30th...and the last one for the time being...busy times ahead! My blessings for you all until I return...

      Farah, I read your lovely poem. It's very moving. Some dreams never come true. I guess that's why they're called dreams. Life is an unpredictable journey. Hope to see you back soon. Fi Aman Allah. I hope everything in your life is going well.
      I'm sending you my love and blessings! smile

      Beautiful but sad poem. Human life is so vulnerable and most of the desires remain unfulfilled.
      Thank you for sharing your earlier creation. Take your time and come back refreshed.
      Hope, things improve for the better,  and as per our expectations, at HP, when you are back.
      All the best.

        Thank you so much, dear Ms. Chitrangadan Sharan, for your appreciation. I am happy to know you liked it. It was after an uncle’s death back then that made me think in this line. He was in the airforce and his jet collided with another one due to a technical malfunction while they were practising aerobatics for our Victory Day. My cousin was 27 days old then. There were three other families I saw mourning. All had a tale. All had happy lives which came to an abrupt end.....and then...all these people gathered hope and started living again. This was what made me think about the uncertainties of life.
        Yes, I do hope I come back to see a better HP. Till then, stay blessed!

      Farah, sadly, that is life with ups and down! And this is pure humanity.

    Thank you for your appreciation and generous comment, sweat Misbah! Life is going as usual dear but I need to focus on some important issues. So I decided to take a break. Hopefully, HubPages will be back with the commenting option before I return. My love and blessings for you too... Fi Aman Allah!

    Farah, this poem is both beautiful and sad. I am glad you uncovered the old poem and resurrected. It needed to b read.
    When first came to Hub Pages I found all my old poetry, reworked it and published for others to read for the first time.
    I am sorry you are taking  break but  this may be a good time. Hopefully when you return comments will be  restored. Take care.

      Thank you, John, for your continuous support and encouragement ever since I joined HP. It was only because of this support that I got the interest and courage to compose the next piece. It saddens me to think that the new writers in HubPages will not be able to avail and benefit from this positivity and guidance. I hope HP will be looking into this matter seriously and restore the comment option before I come back. Wishing you a long, happy and healthy life from the core of my heart! Stay blessed, John!

    Well-crafted poem but tragic, Farah. That is the destiny for many of us. We all want to live long and have many dreams to fulfill. But it is all in the Almighty's hands and it is His will. Thank you for your fabulous poetry.

    Thank you for your appreciation and wonderful insight, dear Rosina! It is surely in the Almighty’s hands and will! This is the reason why I do not think we should forget to live in the present moments and focus too much on the future. Glad to know you liked it. Stay blessed always!

    This thread looks so good that I feel like copy-pasting it and attaching it to my hub...if only that was possible! sad

      Farah, you're right. But I don't see the "possible."

        Dear Miebakagh, let’s give the people working behind HP a chance to rectify the mistake. They have noted the issues and I am sure they will work on it too. Problems arise because it is never a single person taking the decisions but rather multiple heads and quite often people differ in their opinion. Ultimately they end up doing what seems profitable. But here in HubPages, it is not just about money. It is also about a community of writers who share similar interests and they are not ready to compromise with their interactive experience. I am sure the HP team will take this seriously for their long term benefit. Let’s hope for the best smile

    Your poem is sad and contains some important advice for us. We never know what the future will bring. Making the most of the present is important.

      That's what divides the mature from the inmature.

    This is a very good poem, Farah. While some dreams never come true we need to keep our hope alive. I trust in God and live a day at a time. Thanks for sharing this poem.

      Thank you once again for your appreciation and encouragement.
      Wishing you a blessed and happy life, dear Pamela!
