Saying goodbye to people who are going is what we teach toddlers. The most common thing. We have already started teaching them to let people go happily. Some do it with so much ease and smilingly. Some cry out loud after people, to go with them or to stop them from going. If the kid does this, we calm it down by many things. In the end they have to accept it and they do somehow and again get busy with their lives. We are still those kids, aren't we? Can we stop people from going? Years of learning and teaching this thing as an outer gesture we almost forgot the depth of it. Shouldn't we think about it, just once..?? ~Kriti . . 27 December, 2019 9:35 AM
Pause; Breathe in; fill your lungs; let it flow; let it go, so that you can breathe again.
This moment, these days, live it through; laugh if you should, cry if you want, smile if you can; it’s meant to fade, before it was birthed; So, hold it close and let it go.
Beyond smiles and joys, life still happens in pain and tears. Count them all - the pain, tears, dreams, emptiness and smiles, they are the seasons. Don’t hate the thorns, don’t hate the dark, how complete can a day be, without the night?
You met them today, it didn’t feel like yesterday; It doesn’t feel the same everyday. It’s okay. It only happens once, and then it’s anew if you should clearly see. Let it go, let it fade. There’s nothing to apologise for, there’s no one to blame.
Leave the past, doesn’t matter how better it was. Breathe the present, it’s the only thing that’s happening now. Let future wait, till sunset. Love every breeze kissing on your skin and caressing your hair. It is heading somewhere lonely and sad.
Let them leave, if their life is calling. Let them stay, if they need healing. Let them return, if they need a home. Let you bloom, without their waters. Carry the warmth you hold in your heart, and hug them, those dying in cold.
