Note: This is a guest post by Hussain, one of my really good friends and one of the best people I've ever met in life...
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. -- Gilda Radner
There is always tomorrow, and life gives us another opportunity to do things right, but in case I am wrong, and today is all that is left to me, I would like to tell you I’m thankful for the acquaintance I had with you and for the words and emotions you have linked with me. As we leave and part on our ways, we take with us fond memories. We take with us lessons from life. We savour the taste of new relationships formed and throw away the burden of bonds that have faded away.
A few words for you…
When we first met,
The speculation in your eyes, I’ll never forget..
We learned to look at circumstances, all in the same mirror
Where our reflections collided and shimmered..
Be it the war of opinion and verity
Or the sweet togetherness of companionship and support’s beauty..
We travelled the same roads nevertheless
Now it’s time for us to digress..
Call it serendipity, call it fate
I wish for you to give your dreams wings, bring closure to the wait..
I gift you my gratitude for the kind words and acquaintance,
The golden rays of this sunset will bid you farewell and all success in abundance..
--- Hussain Arsiwalla
