Beetein Lamhe

Chand Lamhaaat Ke Waaste Hi Sahi
Muskuraakar Mili Thi Mujhe Jindagi
Teri Aaghosh Mein Din The Mere Kate
Teri Baahon Mein Thi Meri Raate Kati
Aaj Bhi Jab Woh Pal Mujhko Yaad Aate Hai
Dil Se Saare Gamon Ko Bhula Jaate Hai
Dard Mein Bhi Yeh Lab Muskura Jaate Hai
Beete Lamhein Hamein Jab Bhi Yaad Aate Hai
Together they shared a dream. A dream to celebrate this date for many many years to come. A chance meeting turned that normal date in calendar to suddenly one of the most important date of life. He already planned 6 months in advance how to celebrate it first time, second time , on n on.
Life would have been living like a dream if things worked out that way. But then life is not a dream and things eventually don’t happen the way we plan. That’s what makes life life …right?
So the first year that date came both cried, not together , but separately somewhere ,their wasn’t even a contact that date and the next day both screamed at each other for not wishing yesterday.
Second year, he cried, he had no clue where she was. Eventually his heart won over his mind and he mailed her trying to initiate a conversation. Next one month, every time he opened his mail box with an anticipation of a mail from her side, he was disappointed. Finally, after couple of months he convinced himself not to wait further.
Well, with time you move on. How much impossible it may seem in beginning but with time like people change , things change , the feelings also change, it hurts less , the memories  get blocked somewhere in heart and mind.  So today just seeing the calendar, he realized that it’s the same date. As expected, the thought came but today it was just a passing thought. A smile came, a tear came and with it the date went. J
Everything seemed so perfect in the planning stage. But then life is not meant to be perfect, if its perfect its not life , it’s a dream. Therefore, the best thing is to feel good about the life we are living and see it as a dream rather than crying about the dreams that remained unfulfilled.
Well my favorite quote sums it completely -
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans – John Lennon
