It was a special day for me as I was going to celebrate my 21st birthday. I was happy with all the arrangements. Suddenly I saw a paper kept under the beautifully decorated box with the shinning ribbon flowers.
“It must be a gift from my mom”I thought .
My eyes sparkled with happiness and eagerly I stepped forward . I looked around to get the clue but there was no one in the room except me. I picked up the paper and started reading. Suddenly the high waves of emotions tear me apart . The ship in which I was sailing was not belonging to me anymore.
We have never imagined our life without you but we can’t be so selfish. We can’t keep the truth hidden from you for long. Twenty years back, on the same day,
we got blessed with a flower though it was not belonging to us.Yes, it was belonging to someone else’s garden.
We started cherishing every moment of our life seeing it growing. We never had an autumn thereafter. It spreads its fragrance in way that we forgot all our pains.But now,that flower is at his full bloom and free to choose his way.
Not belonging to us…..these words were echoing in my mind.
The memories of my childhood was flashing in front of my eyes. The moments of holding hands of my parents and walking towards the school.
A handmade chocolates made by mom especially for me…
The beautiful card I made for her on mother’s day…
Watching a movie with dad….. Long 21 years My heart was not ready to accept the truth.
At the end ,an address was written
Mr David Brown
Suddenly I stopped reading….should I read the address futher. Why should I ? I had no courage to read the complete address nor I wanted to. For me, it was meaningless as the life had been so wonderful through out these years that nothing could replace it. We were standing together as a strong mountain against the hard winds of the life.
It is not important where the seed has come from,what matter is the place where it is growing , the soil which is nourishing it …the air which is helping it to breathe.
They are the one who gave me a reason to live and smile, moments to cherish. I had a final look though I had already taken a decision.
As I took a turn I felt the two pure souls standing behind me with emptiness in their eyes.
I threw that paper on floor and gave them a warm hug. None of us spoke a word but the vibration of feelings and warmth of the love passed through the three bodies.
