I was there.
Sitting on a seashore.
Getting pleasure from…splendid creations of god.

Wet sand. Each particle of that was trying to attach with one another. Teaching me to be united.
Big and black rocks. Fighting with waves of the seawater. Teaching me to fight with every misery of life.
Huge waves. Jumping on the sea with a rattling sound.Teaching me to fight with every misery of life.
A strong wind.Giving me pleasure with movement of air.Teaching me to give happiness to others.

On my right side, a girl, my love, was sitting beside me. I was astonished. Bewildered. Everything was overlooked by me when I scrutinized her face.

Blue rounded eyes. Gorgeous face with pink lips. Hair was black and white was her dress. Cheeks were dimpled. She was cute. Indeed.

It seemed that all beauty of angels had been poured into her.

I was looking into her eyes. At her smile. A faint cute polite smile. There, I found bliss,a perfect happiness.

Holding each other’s hand; we promised to spend every moment, to share every happiness, to share every grief with each other. We promised to fight with every misery in life by standing with each other. And we promised to share whole life.

Suddenly something happened and I opened my eyes from a dream. I couldn’t see a girl. That girl became invisible to me. Everything what I saw was a dream. A futile dream.

THAT SOMETHING WAS PAIN. My body was aching.
Like a caterpillar scrambling over my body,
Like a snake had bitten me,
Like a scorpion had stung me.

I WAS ALONE, there…
No wet sand. No black rocks. No big waves. No strong wind. There was nothing. No sound of joy. Only silence.
That silence was giving me pain. Again reminding of her face. I was trying to throw her out of my mind. But I couldn’t do anything. That pain was unbearable. Tears were rolling down my cheeks. I was sobbing….

Today, I have accepted a truth. A bitter truth. She was just a dream. I am again happy and again enjoying this world.

Truth is sometimes chronic; we understand and accept it very late in our life but when we understand it, it can give more happiness and less sadness….
Lie is always acute; we accept it happily on the moment…but when we realise it late in our life, it can give us only continuous pain….
