Wish you were here...

To so many people,


"Never look back...
Never regret...
Never remember
the people you've met.
Never begin...
And never end...
Never say never
when it comes to your friends!"

I have moved to places, I have bid goodbyes and said hellos. It has been painful to say goodbye but it is equally good to meet new people, find friends in them and trust me it is never impossible to have tons of friends. All this is a journey; the journey of life. And at every milestone you meet people - good or bad; you learn, you experience:) It's all different. But but everything you get is not a replacement of old. You don't get that same friend you have had for ages ever in any thousand miles, you don't get that family, that home, that love on any milestone... but you get equally special friends, family, love, care...
The worst is stage between leaving a milestone and reaching the next. I feel I am on way. I know I am not lost; I am locationally challenged. But I want to stay. Stay for long...
I have been away for more than 2 years or 2.5 precisely. Though I can't still call my adobe my home, but I gradually like it here. It's a lonely world especially when being alone is my biggest fear. Sometimes I feel I am missing that one thing in life.. that one purpose, the one answer to what I am doing here? Or why I am here? No matter where you go, you see people with a meaningless smile. Plastic for sure, it often says to me I am equally 'out-of-my-mind' just like you are. I remember misisng all this ever since I came to US. Well things haven't improved or probably I havn't moved. I still miss having that dil-ka-connection. And for this I won't say I met wrong people. People are not wrong! It's the striking of chords amongst two souls that makes things hard. No matter how bad you may find someone , there would always be someone to love that one and no matter how good you are, a certain set, a certain amount of souls hate you.. for something may or may not been done by you! So true, “People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.”
But I just wat to be lucky enough to find the one's who would care enough to break the walls down. :) It's a different world. And all I could say is Wish you were here..

true...no one can replace the people who are no longer with you or aren't around you.
The relationship with every person is different and so are the memories...:)

It's sad that the people you cherished in your life at one point might not stick around forever. I sometimes feel guilty for not being in touch with my friends from my childhood.

Sach,

What is life summed up so well. I agree with you on everything. And I wish I knew you more.

Take care

@PJ:
Absolutely true. As they say, some people just leave their footprints.


@The Lover:
I totally agree. I have tried getting back to almost everyone I associate moments with. But I feel sometimes not everyone is welcoming.

@Uncle Jack:
