We’ve heard it said – “If you blow out all your candles on your birthday cake in one blow then your birthday wish comes true!” Ah…now I can understand why it was so easy to get that set of crayons or that newly arrived toffee at the corner store when we were a child…the older we grow, the more candles on our cake and the more louder our wish grows, there is lesser air in our lungs left…so all I hope and pray that may God give you all that strength so that you can blow all hundred candles on your cake for that one last wish!
This post is dedicated to someone very special!
Some construction work was going on at my place and when I looked at a pile of sand then I couldn’t resist drawing an analogy between sand and memories.
Some memories are like sand.
Those memories used to sit around me as children sit around their father at night. I used to caress their hair while they used to play in the lap of my mind, deep into the nights! Those memories were the most pampered ones. I used to keep them at the safest place in the attic of my brain.
But now those memories have settled on my mind as wet sand. The time gushes like water but it is unable to take away the sand with the flow! The same sand which used to float in the air, spreading light as fireflies has turned heavy!
Today, sitting on the bank of river called life, I’m hoping for some fresh air to kiss the sand to make it dry again so I can blow it away into the oblivion…forever!
