I gazed up into the sky, the vast empire of planets and bright stars. The stars were gazing at me too. On my birthday eve, I felt them speaking to me. A tale of life they chanted, the tale of birth and demise. Once those stars must have borne and once their vehemence would die. Some must have already seeped into the cracks attaining the eternal end. But on my birthday I wish not to talk about ‘end’. Birthday signifies a day when future coincides with the past. Celebrating a moment of past and keeping a vision in mind to make our future better than today.
I received tones of warm wishes, some expected and some were truly a pleasant surprise. Chocolates and cards, cake and candles, gifts and ribbons, friends and treat make a birthday classical. Since the clock tolled the midnight my phone started to ring and beep keeping me awake and thanking all my well-wishers with a smile on my face. The lovely wishes made me feel that since I was borne I am alive within the hearts of my beloved ones. When I read through a card I got overwhelmed with the emotions so profound. It made me feel so special. I felt proud of myself and my friendship.
Mom, dad, sister, brother and my dear friends, I am lucky to have them in my life. They celebrated my birth and I celebrated their fortunate presence in my life. I wish this perennial love to sparkle my life forever. I put down my pen thinking of the wonderful time I spent to foster these sweet memories throughout my life.
