This is again one of my favorite pieces. I don't know by whom it is, but I have loved reading it always and now I know well what these words mean..

When I'll be dead, your tears may flow,
But I won't know,
Cry for me now, Instead!!

When I'll be dead, you will send me flowers,
But I won't see,
Send them now, Instead!!

When I'll be dead, you will say words of praise,
But I won't hear
Praise me now, Instead!!

When I'll be dead, you will forgive my faults,
But I won't know
Forget them now, Instead!!

When I'll be dead, you will miss me then
But I won't feel
So, miss me now, Instead!!

When I'll be dead, you would wish then
you could have spent more time with me,
Spent it with me now, Instead!!

Why can't we love the living, instead of crying for the dead. While alive, we are always finding faults with others, blaming them, cursing them, be selfish, hardly saying any good words. We should learn to praise someone, tell people what they mean to us, tell them how special they are, what place they have in our lives, how grateful we are to them that they are a part of our lives. Life's strange and cruel, you never know you will keep all this in your heart and might never get a chance to say it. So, say it, show it and do it today itself, because tomorrow never comes.

I have always loved reading the quotes by Maya Angelou. A friend of mine today shared this poem of hers with me and I loved it a lot. As I had nothing else to share of my own ( brain dead still ), I thought of sharing this one.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Men themselves have wondered
Now you understand

Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

“To say goodbye is better than never getting an opportunity to say it altogether. The latter hurts more.”  I never thought I will get to feel this statement of mine so soon. I never thought in the wildest of my dreams, how things can change within a matter of minutes. I will now never get an opportunity to say goodbye to paa…3 days have passed and still the feeling has not sinked in my heart that I will never ever see you again. They say it right- ‘some regrets lasts forever’.

I wish I could tell you how much I love you

I wish I could tell you how much you mean to me

I wish I could tell you how guilty I am now, for anything wrong I said or did to you

I wish I could tell you how much I respected you

I wish I could let you know how grateful I am for everything you did for us, sacrificing your comforts

I wish I could thank you for the way you have educated us and made us a good human being
I wish I had just 2 minutes to tell you everything I have felt about you..

I wish…I wish…I wish….

I can only wish now as there is nothing I can do. Don’t know what happened, when and how. Mind is blank..The void can never be filled and the loss is irreplaceable. Still can’t believe, still feel like it’s a nightmare, I will, get up and things will be fine. Can’t think of anything right now. RIP paa….Love you. I know I will never be able to say goodbye to you ever...But wish you could read this from heaven's above..
