The Gift of Love !!
An Eternal reality,
Greater than the shadows of darkness
Dwells with us
Explaining the vanity
Of this Effervescent existence,
Immortal we are in all
Lives forever and ever
Bequeathing times to cherish !!
Past week brought some exteremely grave news for one of my ex-roommates...rather one of my family member here in US. After all we are a family.. in a home away from home. The news not only were disheartening for all of us..but also brought the worst hidden apprehensions from the bottom of the heart....the black hole of the heart...where all our worst fears lie unseen and unspoken. The surfacing of these fears not only made me ponder and underscore...that life is unpredictable...its true..we hear it and say it all the time. But then..when it strikes...its aweful. It made me think that no one is special. Things can happen to u n e time and n e where. Sometimes destiny strikes so hard that the loss is not only unforgettable but irrepairable. What can we do??? Only pray...pray for getting the strength to endure...the reality and accept the void now created in life. But then, there are memories. Memories live for ever. Memories of love and all the good and blessed times that we had together. Love can enlighten our lives even in the darkest of darkness. And love can show us the right path giving all the support that we need and also the motive of our existence.
I happened to pen these lines long ago, but realized the true meaning of it....only in the past week.
