The pursuit of happiness is a chase for a lifetime..

Minus 1


Aging did not look terrific on any other day than this…

…the mum phone would not ring even in the day hours normally, and the li’l dude started shrieking yester night...sharp at 12…with a smile, I said, ‘Thank you so much for calling’, call after call…the day remained easy at work, a pizza party and a fruit cake filled it with fun, all the more…who doesn’t like being treated special…everyone flashes smiles and pats on the back…or shakes hands, as if I won the BAFTA award, huh…but they say its my day...I basked in the glory like Cinderella, when I cut the cake…no music was ever so beautiful to ears than those bass singers’…now I blow out the candle flame and here they go…la la la la lala..la la la la lalaaaa..hmm hmm hmm hmm hmmmm

…the customary done!

Birthday candles don’t make me happy, neither does a cake…no celebration takes me rocking either…I thought may be a bouquet, or an expensive gift…for a while they do….but there is something so truly missing, I feel…it’ll rob me off the joy of being in here, year on year…

…why are few things so past correction?
Could be God did some mistake, sometime…Could be He wants to heal me...Could be…

If at all I may ask, and if my friends believe in the power of prayers…pray for me that my memories never fade and the time doesn’t teach me to stop missing…

I look up…into the mirror…and the one in there said, ‘Happy birthday’…

I heard…’Damn it, you’re growing fonder to God too…’
