Love ....

Mushy stuff... got it as a forward ...

Don't find love, let love find you. That's why it's
called falling in love, because you don't force
yourself to fall, you just fall.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone...
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

It breaks your heart to see the one you love is happy
with someone else, but it's more painful to know that
the one you love is unhappy with you.

If love is the answer,
can you please repeat the question?

Faith makes all things possible.
Love makes them easy.

I believe that to truly Love, is the ultimate
expression of the will to live. A heart that
truly loves is forever young.
Love makes life so confusing, but without love
would you really want to live?
Love me now, love me never,
but if you love me, love me forever.

Love me now, love me never,
but if you love me, love me f…

Just be there ... and stay.

I really liked this forward, so I've pasted it here, if you have the time, do read it .

The nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the old man's bedside. 

'Your son is here,' she said to the old man..  

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.  

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.  
The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed.All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength.  Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.  

He refused. 

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to hi…

Time heals all wounds .... really?

Time heals all wounds... heard that before right ?Everybody says it so often that at one point we just start believing it. Add the philosophical look to the statement, and voila ! Its sold ! Does time really heal all wounds? If you lost a leg, you get a wound, time probably heals the wound, but what about your leg ??? I was recently in a minor accident, and got hurt on my foot, I was limping for sometime, but after a point of time, though it hasn't really healed, I have learnt to walk almost normally, because I have leart to adjust to it and live with it. My wound's gonna heal in a week max.  You learn to block the sad memories - walk in ways that do not hurt ... and say time did it. It healed ... Time gets all the credit for being a silent observer.  Whatever works right. But what works ? My point though is that, I don't really think time heals all wounds... we just hope it does, and after a point just the hope is enough to sustain us and keep us going.
Heck ! Hope keeps the wh…

Far Far Away !

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret ....Everytime I'm really confused, or there are too many things I have to take care of, but I don't seem to be able to, I start saying stuff like "I want to be far far away" or "I wanna sleep now and wake up after a 100 / 40 years" ... simple attempt at escapism actually. The deal though is that I have to stay on and face whatever it is I'm trying to distance myself from. Don't worry, I'm not gonna tell you what were those things I'm wishing didn't exist. I'm gonna tell you about my idea of a perfect "far far away" .
It was this place I went to in my dream once ...  A field with soft red grass.. yeah red. The field was somewhere on a hill ... There were no trees around ( which is to be mentioned here, because my idea of peace usually involves a big shady tree and a light drizzle) There were no flowers, but the grass was really soft, and smelt really good. There were ups and downs , but …
