My Lifetime Companions

There are a few places you don't wish to leave.

These are places that make you feel at home,
Places that have thousands of tales to share
But do we even care?

These are places that tell us about our past,
And places that will make our future last.
Listen carefully, what they have to say,
Because these are places that make our way.

Since ages, they have been quiet,
Guarding us like an all-weather withstanding knight.
O dear, put an end to their wait so long,
For they are elixir to us all.

These are places where I connect to my very own self.
And where my heart pounds, "This is where I belong, this is where I belong."
These places are my lifetime friends-
They are FORESTS, my mates, my companions!
