One perfect day..

Posted by Rajni Chawla


The clock kept ticking.....the hours n days are going by....and one more year passed without you.

We never can just stop time. Or take moments back.
Life doesn't work that way, does it???
I still can’t believe that he is gone, and perhaps I never will. I never thought that I would be alone, and in my mind, I know that being alone is the hardest thing that I will ever have to do.
It will be completing 5 years on 7th Aug without him. My friends and family assume that I am moving on.  Little do they know that there are days when all I do is think about him, days when all I long for is to see his smile, and feel his touch just one more time.  Little do they know that after five years there are nights when I still cry myself to sleep.

AHHH !!!
 “time heals all wounds.”  I want to tell people that the wound in my heart remains open, and that time will never heal it.  But, they wouldn’t understand.  Time for me has only led to a form of acceptance.  A form of acceptance that comes and goes as it pleases, because there are days when you cannot accept the loss.  Yes, there are days when grief washes over you in uncontrollable waves of sadness.

I somewhere read.... “Our wounds run deep, our undying love is forever, and staying connected beyond the veil brings us comfort.”
Today the waves of pain are less frequent but no less intense. I cry unexpectedly and then feel better.  I’ve learned to live without him but not to forget him; to honor the memory of what was, while functioning in the world that is.

Today I am sharing this project to welcome the sadness that keeps us connected .This picture has captured a moment that has gone forever....but will always remain alive in my heart. If I could, I would live forever in this moment. But no one can live in a moment, and time moves......on.
This is my DT project for CCC Blog's Nail it down with textures Aug month challenge.Hop on to see some more fabulous creations from rest of our DT's.
