you taught us (repost)…

you taught us.
how to love.
unconditionally.
without expectation.
how to let love flow.
from within.
to all around.
how to light up the darkest mood.
with a delightful smile.
full of warmth.
of love.

you taught us.
how to forgive.
completely.
no matter how grave the circumstance.
to let someone else also sleep.
the sleep of a child.
knowing he is forgiven.
truly.
for everything.

you taught us how to laugh.
even when the world turned nasty.
because joy resides within.
because your heart is pure.
because God laughs with you.
always.

you taught us how to live.
fully.
for the moment.
because it never comes by again.
this moment.
every moment.
it may be your last.
live it.
to the maximum.

you taught us how to give.
without wanting in return.
even your last piece of chocolate.
just for the sheer joy of giving.
to see happiness.
on another’s face.
knowing you are blessed by God.
always.
in his heart.
because you learnt how to give.
like Him.

you taught us how to be alive.
even in your going.
with a smile on your face.
as your body lay.
we knew what you were saying.
smile.
through even this.
that is living.
so we did.
smile.
like you.

Ahaan.
we love you.
forever.
thank you .
for being in our lives.
in such a beautiful way.
guiding us.
teaching us.
still.
leading us.
to you.
living.
loving.
laughing.
eternally.
together again.
we will be…

    • thank you shakti. yesterday was 2 years since ahaan passed on. just thought it fitting to repost that becuase he truly taught us all that. and he’s allowed us to celebrate his life rather than mourn his passing. really – it’s how you look at the glass – half full or half empty, isn’t it? today, aarti & i are secure in the knowledge that death is just transient. everything is. & if we truly love ahaan, we should celebrate where he is. if we cry it’s just for ourselves – becuase we miss him. mourning is pretty selfish at the end of the day & definitely not unconditional love…thank you for your comments as always, shakti & God bless & love always…
