...he lived or did he?...

this goes out to moments...
moments...
MOMENTS!!!
some sad...
some bad...
times which made you cry...
moments shared...
times when you were hugged for no reason...
times when someone you love snuggled close...
times when you walked alone...
times when the rain pattered on your head...
times when your hair was caressed by the wind...
when tiny raindrops whispered in your ears...
times when you journeyed alone...
when the tarmac looked so gloomy...
when a house lay deserted...
when a loved one went away in your arms...forever...
memories can be painful...
memories can be refreshing...
memories can make us nauseous...
but know this...
you lived them...
you were a part of history...
the frame with your photo will be cherished...
will be frowned upon...
will be flaunted...
will be framed...
but...
you lived it...
through a picture...
a frame...
a moment...
a knot...
a nuptial...
a book...
you did...
and if you did...
then you are lucky...
that you had lived...

Very nice...and after reading your writings, I feel lucky that I have lived and created my own moments.

you're right :) i've been dwelling upon the whole concept of 'memories' myself over the past few days...thanks for refreshing my perspective so well :)

thanks for your comment..it was wonderful. i'm not sure i understood all of it, to be very honest, but it felt so good to have someone actually take out the time and say something so insightful that it was touching even..thank you for that :)

times when u thought u had a friend
and u told them things in confidence that they understood
and then times when u realised they did not
and u regretted ever having told them so much
