So happy you are today.Yet a bit nervous. You can feel the redness on your cheeks, as they blushed. This is the moment you have been longing for, from day one. You have set your mind to be at ease, be very calm and do everything naturally. Rehearsed some gestures. Clasped your palms together, rubbed for sometime and gave rather a quick blow as though to ease the friction between them. A final deep breath. Now you are ready.
Clock ticks and toks. You heart lubs and dubs. Phew! There he/she comes. The whole world stops. Clock ticks no more. Just the lubs and dubs pounding on your chest. Oh! gosh, how you wished to have postponed the meeting. “Stand your ground soldier!” your inner voice motivates. “Aye, aye caption,” gathers yourself up!
Face to face you stand now. Your hard earned better half right in front. Dead hesitant, but your rehearsals saves you. Grabs his/her hand. Then arm in arm. Shoulder to shoulder. Frequent eye to eye. You two stroll in the heart of the meadow, leaving a long trail of snake behind and cutting the meadow in two. Longer than the path trod were the sweet nothings.
Wow! such a moment. What a partner. Everything is perfect. You pray this to last forever!
Clock might have stopped, but time never stood still. The world might have appeared same but it never stopped growing. Its hard to digest. While confronting the change is hardest, despite knowing the fact its inevitable, though. Expect for change, nothing lasts forever!
You are brooding. Your heart so broken. You feel cheated. The very love you loved and cared the most chose to walk a separate route. All the promises you two made, into a thin air, all vanished now. You ask family, friends, sun, moon, stars, mountains, trees, stones, water, wind and whatever comes on your mind, why?
Well, sadly there is no concrete answer to this. But, that doesnt mean there is no way out. There is always a way and a reason for all these. Not necessarily a direct benefit on the personal level but definitely for some good lessons on an abstract level, if only you are positive to learn. A simple lesson for instance, could be to open ones eyes.
One common yet, a very heavy mistake we social animals make is, when we are in love, we believe/act as though we own them. He/she is mine. He/she belongs to me. He/she is best with me. But, what we dont realize is, the moment we start to do this, we are already tying strings on their feet. We are already labeling our love alike a piece of commodities in the market. From the very start you and I alike build our love on a shaky-selfish foundation and expect the best as time rolls on.
Love should be free, open and awake. When we love somebody, we dont just love them we love the universe in their head too. Then only it will calm the hearts!!!!!
Life is just beautiful keep loving and be loved…
