I hope you've had the time of your life

Another turning point a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable but in the end

It's right I hope you've had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

Dear Suji,
you had once posted on http://ektam.blogspot.in/2006/05/irony-of-options.html

Javed Akhtar's line "Ye jeevan ek rah nahi, ek doraha hai..."

I have been looking for this poem for years now. I remember hearing it in a certain movie a long long time back and had memorized it.
Now decades down the lane, I have been trying to look it up but don't remember the movie or cast or anything about it.

Please send me this poem or where i can find it. It'd be an act of kindness.

Love and light
