Windows of Time

I once had a house in a small village, It had windows all around

Some opened on lake side, some on parks and tree tops

I used to sit by these windows and soak in the small miracles of life abound

Watch the sun go down or smile at the treasures the children found

As I became richer, I moved to a big house in the city 

It had many more windows, each draped in silken hue

Sunlight danced behind these and street noises remained hidden from view

I kept looking at the windows but couldnt see past the drapes new

Slowly the sounds faded, the children grew

The smiles were lost as the wrinkles brew

Slowly one day I could finally see 

I had won a lot, but lost all that had ever counted to me

The windows were still there

But there was no one by my side to really care

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
