A little truth about life
This is a small story about human feelings and family bondage.
It’s another morning... Again I have to go to the office.
Oh, this is me… I shouted having a glance at my snap in today’s newspaper. But what the HELL is it doing in the death column?? ……..Strange !…
One sec... Let me think, last night when I was going to the bed I had a severe pain in my chest; but I don’t remember anything after that, I think I had a sound sleep.
It’s morning now, ohh….. It’s already 10:00 AM, where is my coffee?
I will be late for the office and my boss will get a chance to irritate me.
Where is everyone…??? I screamed.
“I think there is a crowd outside my room, let me check.” I said to myself.
So many people….. Not all of them crying…
But why are some of them crying ??
WHAT IS THIS??? I’m laying there on the floor…
“I AM HERE” … I shouted!!! No one listens.
“LOOK I AM NOT DEAD” … I screamed once again!!! No one is interested in me.
They were all looking at me on the bed.
I went back to my bedroom.
“Am I dead??” I asked myself.
Where is my wife, my children, my mom-dad, my friends?
I found them in the next room, all of them were crying… still trying to console each other. My wife was crying… she was really looking sad. My little kid was not sure what happened, but he was crying just coz his mom was sad.
How can I go without saying to my kid that I really love him, I really do care for him ??
How can I go without saying to my wife that she is really beautiful and most caring wife in this world..??
How can I go without saying to my parents that I love and respect them so much ??
How can I go without telling my friends that without them perhaps I would have done most of the wrong things in my life… thanks for being there always when I needed them… and sorry for not being there when they really needed me..
I could see a person standing in the corner and trying to hide his tears… Ohh… he was once my best friends; but a small misunderstanding made us part, and we both have strong enough ego to keep us disconnected. I went there.. And offered him my hand, “Dear friend… I just want to say sorry for everything, we are still best friends, please forgive me.” No response from other side, what the hell?? He is still preserving his ego, I am saying sorry… even then!!! …I really don’t care for such people.
But one second…. it seems he is not able to see me!!!! He did not see my extended hand. My goodness… AM I REALLY DEAD???
I just sat down near ME; I was also feeling like crying…
“OH ALMIGHTY!!!! PLEASE JUST GIVE ME FEW MORE DAYS…”
I just wanted to make my family and my friends realize that how much I loved them.
My wife entered in the room, she looks beautiful.
“YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL” I shouted...
She didn’t hear my words, in fact she never heard these words because I have never said this to her before.
“GOD!!!!” I screamed… a little more time plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. I cried…
One more chance please… to hug my child, to make my mom smile just once, to feel my dad proud on me at least for a moment, to say sorry to my friends for everything I have not given to them, and to thank them for still being there in my life….
Then I looked up and cried again !!!! …
I shouted…. “GOD!!!! ONE MORE CHANCE PLEASE!!!!”
"You shouted in your sleep," said my wife as she gently woke me up. "Did you have a nightmare?"
I was sleeping…. Oh that was just a dream….
My wife was there… she could hear me…
This was the happiest moment of my life…
I whispered to her…. “YOU ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND CARING WIFE IN THIS UNIVERSE…. I REALLY LOVE YOU DEAR”
I couldn’t understand the reason of the smile on her face with some tears in her eyes, still I was happy…. :) .."THANK YOU GOD FOR THIS SECOND (?) CHANCE.”
So, Now it’s not too late. Let's forget our egos, past and express our love to others. Be friendly, keep smiling and be happy for ever…
