Strength of Goodbyes

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn that love doesn't mean security,
And you learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises.
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open,
With the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain.
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn that even sunshine
Burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate
Your own soul, instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers
And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth
And you learn and learn and learn.
With every goodbye you learn.
-Jorge Luis Borges

Har zakham ek kahani hai
har yaad ek nishani hai
zindgi hai to jeeye jaate hain
apno ko khote jaate hain

Na koi paas hai
na koi darkar hai
Ab jo dil ne jeena seekha h
to aur bhi zidd hai isko
ab yeh aur bhi khudsar hai

zakhmo pe jo khurand aaye
rooh pe chhaye malal ke rang gehraye
zindgi ankho ko khwab bakhshe
ya ratjage laaye
phelen andhero ke saaye
raste aur pattharaye
zindgi le chale jis safar par chahe
khade hain hum
ankh se ankh milaye!!
