I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts, or fears.
But I can listen to you and together we will search for answers.
I can’t change your past with all its heartache and pain,
Nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, success, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.
I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you, and wait for you.
I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.
I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.
I can’t tell you who you are.
I can only be your friend.
An empty chair to seat
for my legs to get some rest
and my bumps to have some stress
Pain in body is relieved
but not vanished
Standing up relieves my bumps
And puts stress on my legs
I feel the pain
It gets worse
What is happening to me?
Pile of files in front of me
I am trying to focus
Cool breeze kisses me
My eyes are closing now
What was there in that breeze?
Out there under the sun
He is trying to suck me
Like orange juice
For me, water is not enough
Nothing is enough
Thirst is never satisfied
My bed is not my friend
Laying on bed hurts
All the pain at same time
Then my eyes get closed
It doesn’t take long
The symptoms are repeated
They seem to be perpetual
once again the same question
What is happening to me?
I am tired
I am tired of being tired
There is a long time period between the moment we are born and the moment we die. That time period we call as life. We have to live that. Don’t waste this valuable time in things you are not supposed to do. Neither waste your time doing nothing. At some stage you will face the situation stated in above picture. Don’t ever let that happen to you.
When we are kids, we don’t know life. We live it without any restrictions. The way we want. We laugh many times. No one have to tell us to enjoy the life. As we grow up, we stop living life under the burden of expectation and responsibilities. They do have priorities. But Never let them surpass your living.
Sing – Even if your voice is as bad a crow.(I am with you )
Dance – Like no one is watching you and Even if your dancing makes someone forget theirs.
Laugh – Even if people call you mad. Only make sure you are not sent to asylum.
Live your Life and…
Today is friendship day. It is supposed to be the first Sunday of August. Friendship is a relation which stands out of all. And today is the day to remember all your friends anywhere on earth or traveling in space or may be somewhere underground. Just remember the friend and I assure he’ll be doing the same. Whenever I remember a friend of mine I somehow get a visit in next couple of days. Or a call at least. Why I don’t call my friends is out of question. Something I never understood of myself. I do call them sometimes. But not often.
It used to be often when I was in college. Since my professional life there have been distances. My friends are found to be nowhere. I am still searching them on orkut and trying to have a knot there. When I am away from old friends it’s good that I am finding some new ones. Then I remember old saying. “Old is Gold”. They are pieces of gold and make me rich.
So this post is to remember all my friends all around the world whom I don’t contact or lost my contact. I still remember you. I still miss you. You always have a place in my heart.
