It was evening, and not winter anymore.
A duck swam alone to her direction,
making ripples on her
peaceful reflection,
and the world waited
like a patient student
just to watch her.

You also wanted
to be able to swim,
without knowing
the address to reach.


You learned to breathe by
counting every second,
measuring the distance
between places
with a wristwatch,
and with heartbeats.


You learned time didn’t wait for us.
It just followed its clock.
You carried the burden-
like how you carried 
your books, nights and griefs-
and you embraced it
and moved forward,
fell down,
balanced it,
but walked till the end.
