Good Bye!

Just two simple words, yet how difficult to say!

I dedicate this post to a very ‘special’ friend of mine.
‘Special’ not because he made me feel like an ‘Angel’, but rather I saw my dark side, the side which I never acknowledged, the side which I thought was a non-existing entity sticking on to me, the side which I preferred to see only in others, the side which I believed only others had !

He was my partner-in-crime. Of course, the criminal was me but he would never reveal it to anyone, making the crime so much more fun and the criminal more happy!

He was the priest at the confession counter! He would listen to my confessions without judging me. Hmmm, if only we all were like that!

He was my confidant, yes, I could tell him the most heinous crimes I have committed, am committing right now and plan to commit soon. I would even ask him suggestions for crime improvement!

He was my dustbin, always received the heaps of rubbish I would throw like a gift! This dustbin never complained!

He was my tear-sponge! He would just soak up all the waterworks and lighten me by a few tons at least. Hehehe

He had a great sense of colour, who else could tolerate my F-sprinkled lingo!
He made me ‘love’ myself; see myself through a more kinder heart and a less critical eye!

He made me ‘believe’ in myself, made the ‘blooming’ for real…unleashed the infinite within myself, helped me break ‘fear’ and realize my true potential.

So dear ‘Special’ friend, thank you for crossing my path and enriching it forever! With promises, the beautiful lessons learnt and always being aware of the dark in me, I move on. The Show Must Go On!
As all good things come to an end.. here comes the moment of truth… with loads of best wishes and brushing off a happy tear….Good Bye!

i don't know what to say but change your mind, do something which will give you peace.

Johnny said...

You have taken a big decision my friend..

It's very unfortuante..

He may forget the time spent with you, but will never forget how you have made him feel....it's vice-versa too..

Scrawler said...

Vin said...

Vin said...

The Show must go on..

Rather, Life is calling, where r u??

sawan said...

Vins, do i feel numb?. Of course such a decision would be definitely accompanied by scores of facts! But the whole background of an ending relationship is painful. I am sure you deliberately gave the post and comments a hint of humor but ultimately its a loss. All I could say is take care. I am sure you are ok 'cos its your decision to be ok. Let this phase never darken your soul. *hugz*

Vin said...

Hey Sawan, life is good n humour is the best friend to take along with us on our paths:)
nothing is painful except the 'good bye' moment..before n after, its only beautiful n more enlightening !!
thanks for the 'hugz', very much required that moment:)

Karthik said...

No.. I wont say!! I'll keep on tracking ur blog!! Hope u do the same for mine too!! Lol!!

megz said...

hey gurl, you can treasure this special jewel for life. m sure, there will be a blissful threshold or the 'blooming euhporia' as i call it, very soon :) gud luck in all that u do!!

Fr Jerry said...

To know our darker side is at times bliss. But we all have a darker side to us and it is what reminds us that we are humans. The special friend somehow reflects so many people even though it might be just one. Good post.

Vin said...

@karthk: hmmmm, thats a nice bartar system. Done !!

@megz: thank u thank u, sweetie:)
my 'blooming euphoria', where r u??
would need time though:)

@Fr Jerry: Thanks Fr, this one kept me always remindful of 'me'!!
gonna miss real bad:)

Vin, few lines from James blunt for you sweetie,...chin up girl!!!

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won
So I took what's mine by eternal right
Took your soul out into the night
It may be over but it won't stop there
I am here for you if you'd only care
You touched my heart, you touched my soul
You changed my life and all my goals
And love is blind and that I knew when
My heart was blinded by you

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend
You have been the one
You have been the one for me

Vin said...

Senorita, these lines r so beautiful yaar..James Blunt, thanks mate:)

1st 4 lines r a complete winner:
Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won

Thanks gal for sharing this:)
