WHAT???? This is me!!! I shouted seeing my picture in the newspaper. But what the HELL is it doing in the obituary column??
One sec… Let me think, last night when I went to bed I had severe pain in my chest, but I don’t remember anything after that, I think I had sound sleep.
Its morning now, oh… It’s already 10:00 AM, where is my coffee? I will be late for office and my boss will get a chance to shout at me.
Where is everyone? I screamed.
“I think there is a crowd outside my room, let me check.” I said to myself.
So many people… Not all of them are crying. But why are some of them crying.
WHAT IS THIS??? I’m lying there on a bed in the drawing room!!!!
“I AM HERE” . I shouted!!! No one listened. “LOOK I AM NOT DEAD”. I screamed once again!!! No one was interested in me. They were all looking at me lying on the bed.
I went back to my bed room.
“Am I dead??” I asked myself.
Where are my wife, my children, my mom-dad, my friends?
I found them in the next room, all of them were crying. Still trying to console each other.
My wife was crying. She was really looking sad. My little kid was not sure what happened, but he was crying just coz his mom was sad.
How can I go without telling my kid that I really love him, I really do care for him….?? How can I go without telling my wife that she is really the most beautiful and the most caring wife in this world..?? How can I go without telling my parents that I am what I am just because of them…?? How can I go without telling my friends that without them, perhaps I would have Done wrong things in life- thanks for being there always When I needed them. And sorry for not being there when they really needed me..
I can see a person standing in the corner and trying to hide his tears. Oh, he was once my best friend, but a small misunderstanding made us part, and we both never let go off our egos….
I went there.. And offered him my hand, “Dear friend. I just want to say sorry for everything, we are still good friends, please forgive me.”
No response from other side, what the hell?? He is still preserving his ego. I am saying sorry, even then!!! I really don’t care for such people.
But one sec.. It seems he is not able to see me!!!! He did not see my extended hand. My goodness. AM I REALLY DEAD???
I just sat down next to MYSELF; I also felt like crying.
“OH GOD!!!! PLEASE GIVE ME FEW MORE DAYS.” I just want to tell my wife, my parents, my kid and my friends how much I love them.
My wife entered the room, she looks beautiful. “YOU’R BEAUTIFUL” I shouted. She didn’t hear my words, in fact she has never heard these words from me, coz I have never told her.
“GOD!!!!” I screamed. a little more time plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. I cried.
One more chance please-to hug my child, to make my mom smile.. just once, to make my dad feel proud of me at least for a moment…, to say sorry to my friends for everything I have not told and done for them-inspite of that for still being there for me..
Then I looked up and cried!!!!
“GOD!!!! ONE MORE CHANCE PLEASE!!!!”
“You shouted in your sleep,” said my wife as she gently woke me up. “Did you have a nightmare?”
I was sleeping..??!!! Oh that was just a dream..??!!
My wife was there. She could hear me. This was the happiest moment in my life!! I hugged her and whispered.. “U R THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND CARING WIFE IN THIS UNIVERSE.. I REALLY LOVE U DEAR”
I just couldn’t understand that in spite of a smile on her face she had tears in her eyes…
I was so HAPPY!!!!!
“THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING ME ANOTHER CHANCE!!!”
It’s not late.. Forget your egos, forget all that has happened….., and just express your love to others…. Be friendly….. Keep smiling and be happy for ever.
