Goodbye!

Who were those people? What were they made of; what made then real? How did they get love in return? Love for love. They must have found out the secret to simplify this transaction.

Lost! The roads have parted and all of them chose a separate path. For a while they walked with me; and in those moments we lived in heaven. Who would ever have the time to bear the idiosyncrasies of me for while longer than is possible. And who am I to complain if my shadow, even, often, has seemed distant.

But, there is no one long road that we can walk together. If we are to be our selves, it is a truism. But we are to cherish that companionship that we experienced for a few miles, or less. For that has made our journey worthwhile. That is what added colour. And we shall meet the others, the new ones, who will in a peculiar way remind us of our friends. In turn, they will become friends.

But that is all friends will do, they will walk with us for a while, only. If they walk with us forever they are slaves.

Do not despise them because of the length of the journey. Love them for the content of the journey.

  1. You are blessed… really blessed.. HATS OFF to your imaginations and emotions… Liked the following sentences.. “But that is all friends will do, they will walk with us for a while, only. If they walk with us forever they are slaves.

    Do not despise them because of the length of the journey. Love them for the content of the journey.” VERY MEANINGFUL….

  2. This morning, i was missing a very dear friend. We don’t talk anymore, but surely i miss her presence in my life. I wonder, why did all those misunderstandings even occur. And then, i happened to read this post. The last couple of lines calmed me down.

    I hope she reads this post and understand that i love her for the journey together.

    • I hope she reads it too! I must admit, I am a bit surprised, how, a personal post has resonated with others. I had almost decided that this would remain an orphaned post, without comments and likes. :) Thank you for letting me know otherwise!

  3. So true and meaningful. All our lives are filled with enriching experiences; sometimes, we forget to appreciate it and then, your post comes along to remind us what really matters.:)
