The Gift



Strolling in the park in the summer breeze with your love , nothing beats this.The cool breeze playing with her hair and bringing back its strawberry scent , it’s just like our first date all over again.Her hand in my hand , nothing will bring me down today. Like all our problems have vanished , but Sara tells me otherwise.

I have to tell him , sooner or later he will know , it’s better to tell him sooner , just like a band – aid , fast and steady . I know he always wanted to have kids , a weird mixture of both of us. So no bullshitting just fast and straight forward. ” Paul , I , um , I can’t become a mother , ever .” I whispered . ” What ?”  his trembling voice asked . ” I went to see the doctor and it turns out we can’t have our own weird little mixture . ” I tell him while trembling myself. Then I notice the tears streaming down his face . He hugs me . ” Oh , honey , are you okay ? I am so sorry .” Now tears start flowing down my face also . ” Its okay.We have so many other options now . We can always adopt . We have so much love to give , we will share it with a kid and make him our kid.”

Such a great weather to be outside and knitting. Young love everywhere I see , creating their memories and growing more and more in love every second . I know eavesdropping is bad but I can’t help but hear a couple’s conversation standing few feet away. Now this is what I call love , facing all problems together and growing with them . I go towards the crying couple . ” I am sorry for listening in your conversation , here, ” and I hand them the sweater I was knitting , ” I was knitting it for my grandson , but I give it to you as a gift . I hope it will work as a lucky charm and fill your life with the sweet laughter of kids .”

True Love – A Myth ?


What exactly is love?

I think love is such a beautiful thing that it has to be a myth, because something as pure and serene as love can’t survive in today’s ‘survival of the fittest’ world. We all just delude ourselves into thinking we know what love is.In reality, we are selfish and  have a self-serving motive in everything we do , even when we are not able to see it. Mostly its to make our life easier,but life isn’t supposed to be easy or fair.

The true love of soul mate kind of love only exists in movies and books, not in real life.On earth , we have more of a convenient love.Easy going and pragmatic , now that kind of love lasts in real life.We all wonder ,are soul mates really real ? The optimists like to believe they are but even they agree the probability of meeting your soul mate is like a million to one.So people waiting for ‘the one’ better get ready to die alone because the math is definitely not in their corner.

Philosophers say opposites attract but even that is proved through science, so how can people who find logic even in love actually find love.Because love is  supposed to be logic less and clueless.We read a few book and watch some romantic comedies we think we know all there is to know about love.But love is not to be understood , its to be felt.

Love is different for everybody.It doesn’t have to be the soul mate kind , it can also be with someone or something you connect with,that you think understands you in a whole different way.Because in the end, I think , love is all about understanding one another.Its said that when we eat chocolate, the same enzyme is released in our brain and body when we are supposedly in love.So just like we prefer some chocolates over others, some love are strong and some weak.Our favourites in chocolate keep changing exactly how we outgrow some loves because they weren’t meant to be until we taste that ultimate chocolate  which we know will always remain our favourite even though sometimes it may taste bitter.

So to answer the question is love a myth ? well , we have all our life to find out.

Love is the symphony no. fifth

Love is the hope we live with

Love we wish isn’t a myth
