Memories...

"As I sat by the river, looking at the flowing waters...
a ripple made me see, my yesteryears in the mirror...
the age of innocence, the brashness of a young man...
the making of a man, to a frail old man...
The waters said to me " Enjoy as much as you can...
for this is how your story ran..."
I lived my life again, felt the time become still...
And carry these moments to the end, I will... "


The word that makes you feel happy... sad... good... bad... beautiful... ugly... and a great variety of feelings is "memories" ..... memories of your life..... those you have lived in.... those which you are creating.... those which you will be wanting to live again and again. They are a very part of our existance.
Well well... let me tell you , how I got to this word or thing.... actually today my college was closed... so we friends (4 of us) decided to go for a drive and some timepass.... while on the move my friend said that we have just bout 4 months of stayin together and after that we will be parting and goin for jobs etc. This thing make me realised the 4 years we had spent together and all the fun we had. My mind was flooded with all the memories of past years.... the fights we had... the fun ....the teasings.... affairs.... parties and much more. This all made me feel little sad bout leaving my friends but then life is all bout changes and one has to be ready to accept those changes as they come. We all thought bout the our lifes after college... and decided that the time we are left with will be utilized to full and we will make the most of it, so that these pleasant memories will last long.
So, this was the genesis of the topic for me. I sat there thinking over it and realised that yes... someday or the other we have to leave and all that is left with us are the memories, which have accumulated over a period of time. We search into them when we are alone and have no one to comfort us. We look for those sweet moments that still make us laugh... tears make up for the sad ones... they give us the strength as well as weaken us... this is the thing that man wants the most and hates the most... as its a double edged sword...
Well well things have to go this way only.... people get sad when they are parting but then they dont realise that they are only leaving people behind but taking memories with them. You cannot always have your own way... if it was like that, then we would never let our near and dear ones depart from the earth... and yet they depart leavin a whole lot of memories behind them. Yes, it feels sad to leave someone behind but then sometimes its necessary and who says to leave someone behind, we can always be in contact and still be friends, but also we will be making new friends at new place. Memories are those which lie in the heart and they remain there till the end. Its upto a person how he looks at them.....
And I always want to have memories of those pleasant times that I had with my friends, family and everyone throughout my life.... they mean a lot to me.... they form a basis of my existance and they just remind me that I am not alone...

So true...
I share the same opinion. I treasure the memories of happier times and lessons learnt of the tough times

Ahh the pangs of sweet nostalgia!

You may not realize it but the sweet memories of days gone by are being woven this very moment as the clock ticks away. And since you cannot stop the winds of time, live each day as its your last day. Then my friend you will be adding magic to your memories !
Yes its you and you alone who create these memories ..

One cannot talk about parting permanantly but parting from friends who may be living in other cities/states/countries has become a lot easier with the advent of modern technology.With the internet, one can remain in touch with chats etc and with web cameras one can remain in a sort of intimate touch.

@Hiren
Yup... with the advent of mordern technology... parting has bcome easier.. but do the feeling still hold there or is it after sometime " Out of sight n out of mind".. just think
God Bless U
