Migration is not only physical
It is also of age

Breaks down
Someone goes out from thoughts
Someone becomes suppressed
In the heartbeats
Someone flows away in tears
Someone disappears
In the loud laughing
Physical or migration of age
Leaves everything
To destine the memories
To flame the life
Even though the memories are real
But those never appear
As a factual reality.
