Dedicated to my friend Angelina Gupta
If for a moment God has forgotten that I'm just a rag puppet and would give me a piece of life I would have probably not said what I think. I would value things not for how much they cost but for how much they mean. I would sleep less, would love more, knowing that every minute that we close our eyes we lose sixty seconds of light. I would listen when others talk, and how I would have enjoyed the wonderful taste of chocolate ice cream. If God gave me another moment of life I would dress modestly to lay in the sun, substituting warm rays not only to my body but also my soul. Lord, if I had a heart, I would given all the hatred to the ice and waited until the Sun comes out. I would dream of Van Gogh painting on the stars, a poem by Coleridge and Serrat song would be the serenade and I'd presented to you the moon. I would have poured tears rose to feel the pain of their thorns and the incarnated kiss of their petals. Lord, if I was still a bit of life I would not spend a single day without telling people that I love! that I love them!! I would make sure each of my dear people are in love and I would live in love with love. I would explain to those who are wrong, telling them that age doesn't matter when you fall in love. To a child I would have presented the wings, but allowed himself to fly. To the old I would convince them that death comes not with old age but with forgetting the person. I learned so much from you. I realized that the whole world wants to live in the mountains, not realizing that true happiness is how we climb up the hill. I realized that from the moment when the first newborn baby in his small compress finger held his father's finger that he shall never let go away. I realized that one person has the right to look down on others only when he helps him up. There are so many things that I could still learn a lot from you people but, in actual fact, they are unlikely to be useful because when I am put in the coffin, I , unfortunately, am dead. Always say what you feel, and do what you think. If I knew that today was the last time I see you sleep, I would hug you, and prayed to God that he made me your guardian angel. If I knew that today I see the last time, as you go out the door, I would hug, kiss you, and would be called again to give you more. If I knew, I hear your voice for the last time, I would have taped everything that you say, to listen to it again and again, endlessly. If I knew it was the last minute when I see you I would say I love you. There is always tomorrow and life gives us another opportunity to make things right but if I am wrong and today is all we have left, I would like to tell you how much I love you and that would be the moment you will never forget. Neither the young man nor an old man knows if tomorrow will come and maybe today is last time you see the ones you love. So do not wait for something, do it now, because if tomorrow never comes, you'll regret the day when you have not had time for a smile, a hug, a kiss, and when you were too busy to perform the last wish. Keep the people closest to you! Whisper in their ear as you need them love them and treat them with care. Take time to say "I'm sorry," "excuse me, please" and "thank you" and all the words of love that you know because no one will remember you for your thoughts.
