As Dumbledore rightly states in Harry Potter, “Do not pity the dead Harry, pity the living and above all those, who live without LOVE.”
And that is the fate our race is steadily driving towards. Still death is that unique phenomenon that has the strength to bring out of us the potential to love, to care and above all to support and empathize with another.
Here is a poem written by a girl, when her friend’s father passed away, to show her friend that love can’t be drowned or decayed in adversity; it rises above all.
Dear Girl, There are times that dishearten you incredibly in life, Among all the harm that our being undergoes the deadliest is loss… No matter what they say of aging and death the void remains… The grief and painare inevitable but suffering is optional… Please let it not be you choice. Being the daddy’s girl, I know you must feel lost and spent… You will want to be angry, upset or may wish to quit… But please remember, the man who raised you as a Princess… Would love to watch you standing out of this chaos as a Queen.
The person who kept you harboured watching you.. From the first bicycle ride to the Graduation day, Wants to see you as the victor amidst the lashing waves of silence… Let it not be the ‘silence that silences’… For all the love and care that you have been brought up with… You owe it to him to accept that he has found a place in heaven.. From your Guarding Angel on earth to your Watcher above… In all the memories that he gave you… It is strength that he wished to impart… Do not let them cripple you…
I know it will never be the same but now you know nothing can be worse… Your smile means the most to those who are there around you… Your mother needs you as a pillar like all the others.. your dad would want to know that you handled it well.. I know it’s not fair. Yet it remains irreversible. Besides, he can never be lost to you… PLEASE, HAVE FAITH AND STRENGTH.
For all those who lost their parents, hope this gives you strength and helps you feel closer to your them. Their loss isn’t of the nature to be compensated but you can make them smile or happy wherever they are by being the most sincere they wanted you to be.
Excel in life and take others along.
Love the people around you for life is too small to be wasted ignoring or hating people. Be compassionate and compassion you shall receive, For it is the way of the world, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.
