Of beginnings and endings !


Every beginning has an end, I have been told a million times. I dreaded my beginning. Not because I dreaded my end; but, only because, I wanted my end to be special, unlike my predecessors, who got lost in the journey, unacknowledged or brushed off. Whenever the time came, all of them gathered to make their beginnings and I prayed to God, to delay the start of my life. While some of them laughed at my cowardice and some of them whispered about my selfishness, only one other of my kind stood by my side and told me she understood.


I read her heart and understood that she too had apprehensions about her beginning. When I stretched out my hand to her, she held it tightly and whispered softly to me “I, unlike you, do not care about my ending. All I wish is that I am one of those reserved for happiness. I hope I am born out of happiness!” She is indeed special, I thought. I knew none of us ever knew the reason behind our births. It was the part of the wicked game, god played. We were there just to serve one sole purpose- act as per the heart’s wishes.


Yet, we dared to dream and hope and wish - she for her dream beginning and me for my dream ending. The others laughed at our stupidity and some cursed our selfishness. But I, went on doing what I always did- wishing that the heart and the soul would understand me. Amidst this, she, the happy one, stayed by side. There were times when we both hugged each other tightly, praying that we would not be the next ones to go. I had grown to love her, and she me; but we knew we could never be together. Both of belonged to somebody else. Until the time came, we promised each other that we would be each other’s company. While we sat waiting and praying, we saw many others take form of their lives, fulfilling the purposes. We would too, one day; only that, it would serve our dreams too.

Unknown to us the day arrived.

My new life is nothing like I imagined. I knew it would be short a very short journey to my end. My only thoughts were of my ending, hoping that I would get what I had prayed for. I waited, not wanting to leave my cradle and the beautiful brown that I engulfed. The world outside was bright and I felt warm. I was alone with no others of my kind. I could feel myself swelling up and I knew my end was near.

Before I knew it, I was diving downwards, leaving a trail. As I journeyed further on the smooth surface, I looked back to see a beautiful flutter and I fell in love with the heart that commanded me. How foolish of me to have thought of my ending, this journey was enough. My life was worth every tiny second that I lived. I thought of my companion wishing she would love her journey as much as I did. Was she just behind me or was her time a different one! Of this, I had no idea. I closed my vision and braced myself to meet my nearing end. I sparkled one last shine, waiting to hit nothingness.

“Now that you are mine, I wish you heart would never experience any pain. And if it does, I promise, I shall kiss away all your tears starting from this one”, the man told his newlywed wife, looking into her tear filled brown eyes adorned by thick black eyelashes, as he pressed his lips against her cheek, where the lone drop of tear rested almost about to fall. The prayers were answered and the tear was indeed special, the first one to be kissed by a loving heart.

The woman's heart swelled with happiness and out came the happy tear sparkling,tracing the same path as her companion to unite with him.

The two tear drops served their special purposes along with fulfilling their dreams of beginnings and endings.

  2. well,Amo, I loved the post, this time you kept me guessing and I must confess I couldn't GUESS right till the end.TEARS ARE SUCH SPECIAL DROPS, THEY CLEANSE YOUR HEART & SOUL, THEY SEEM TO WASH AWAY THE PAIN, THE HURT AND LEAVE YOU FEELING LIGHT HEARTED AND SOME WHAT RENEWED. SO OCCASIONAL SHEDDING OF TEARS, IS GOOD FOR US HUMANS.AT LEAST TEARS SHOW US THAT EVEN IN THIS MECHANICAL, DIGITAL,MATERIALISTIC WORLD, WE STILL HAVE EMOTIONS. SO ...NOT EVERY THING IS LOST. KEEP SUCH GEMS COMING. LUV U KID.

  3. Amo, Fantastic. I loved the post. Yes, I can understand the tear drop’s feelings. I feel the ‎same way. Yes, I wish all my tears were kissed by the ones I love and who love me and ‎never let my tears go un noticed and un cared for. Beautiful feelings and very true. I am ‎so glad for both the tear drops that they fulfilled their dreams. Lucky ones. I wish all the ‎tear drops were as lucky. You do write beautifully. All family full of lovely, emotional, ‎touchy, writers whose posts touch my heart and make me emotional. Keep up the good ‎work and do write more often. Loved it totally. ‎

  4. “If I could be anything in the world I would want to be a teardrop because I would be born in your eyes, live on your cheeks, and die on your lips.”

    This is exactly what your post makes me feel...As I said before, what a way to write! I wish I got thoughts like this, I wish I had the ability to write like this...It was beautiful and totally new to me...Couldn't guess who or what you were referring to till the very end :) And I was totally in awe when I finished reading it (still am:)). And yeah, I found it very intimate and romantic too, Amo:)

    1. I remembered the exact lines while starting to write this .. I wish I had written this in a poetic form.. Alas I do not have your poetic skills :)

      Thank you soo much CJ..yes Its is sort of intimate and romantic in its own way.. I just keep seeing romance in all the things around, blame my uber romanticism, but then who else can understand this better than you :D

      So very glad that you liked it :)

  8. Oh my gosh!! Oh my gosh!! I'm drowning in the deluge of fantabulous posts being published by you folks, and believe me there's no better feeling than this :D
    The first time I read this masterpiece on my mobile, the suspense was torturous till the very end, but once the ending provided the much needed relief, the beautiful essence of your work took over! I reread the post again (and considering how big a pain reading something on the mobile is, you must take that a serious compliment in itself :p), and I was awestruck! What brilliant imagination you've got to script the story behind the life cycle of tears :)) Take a bow!
    Your writing style is unique, and I like all your posts, but to say that I'm in love with this particular post would be an understatement. It's right up there with Pellucid...
    Keep writing and keep mesmerizing :)

    1. The torture you sentenced yourself to, I shall take all the compliments gleefully :D . Thank you so much :)

      I thought I could never ever go back to the feeling of 'Pellucid' but somehow I feel satisfied after so long :)

      With all the encouragement that you guys give with such awesome posts and comments, I surely have to keep writing ! :)
