To the Moon and Back

Often we force ourselves into things that are not ours ; into day dreams that were so real. Into what we can call illusions but they could have been the best illusions we shared. Do you want to know why ?

Because those feelings happened to be so right at that particular moment, they lifted our spirits up. And they hit straight to our souls; shattered our emotions . How your heart beats so fast ? How your body becomes so warm ? And how your eyes say all the talk while in silence ?

It took them so long to reach to a state of steadiness were nothing can possibility shake us . Nothing were suppose disturb that inner peace . They finally began to adjust with nature, we found love within ourselves and thus learned how to let go and move on. Everything  they worked on was falling apart suddenly. It was like an earthquake strike and left everything scattered. How their hands are still shivering? And how tears falls from their eyes irrationally ?

There they stand face to face , hand in hand , chest in chest  and lips by lips …and everything clams down. That peace they felt was unlike and that’s the moment their souls moved ; the earthquake subsided.

The way sun rises after a long raining season.

The way the tulips blooms .

The way their eyes meet.

The way time suddenly stops .

The way their voice is so tender.

Can someone be the cause of the earthquake and at the same time calms it away?

After such a long journey of loneliness and adjusting with the circumstances and life; finally trying to understand how things are meant to not happen , while others are meant to just let go. After all this training of self-realizations. They get in each other’s  lives; and leave the most beautiful memories that are going to stay within forever. They play the same rhythm of our souls and they started dancing together  . They knew precisely that this dancing won’t last and that the music will stop however at that particular moment all what mattered was that they were happy.  In fact , all was needed was a moment to lit it up.

A whisper was heard saying , “ Love you to the moon and back .”

What if ….

 

What if none of this happened?

What if we never met?

What if we never loved ?

What if we never kissed ?

What if I was wrong?

What if you were right ?

That we can’t change what happened

That life is harder

What if dreams never came true?

What if you were just illusion?

Yes ! You were just an illusion

What if I move on?

What if this has to be the end ?

Would you say Goodbye to everything ….?

Farewell

 

 

HAPPY

 

Happiness is YOU

 

happy-the-movie

There are some people in the world without emotions , without care , love . They live their lives in a concept of  “what benefits you have for me” and so equally he will help you. Even families and friends; actually there is no such bond . If we are cousins and I don’t have anything to give you then there is basically no need for you to visit me at hospital when am are sick . I have seen people like that & worst,  I have seen a whole community like that. Barbarian ! They only live searching for the food today. No love , no childhood and eventually no happiness. We’re lucky however, that such world is limited.

Few months back I was sick ,very sick . And the care I saw in the people around me , the love I saw in their eyes ; made me consider what happiness really is ?

Happiness lies in the family and friends and the bond of love between them . That can never break .  You find them supporting , holding hands , hugging and most of all telling you that ” Everything will be alright “.

It’s a blessing to have people you can call ” These are my family and friends”  . Whether  you lost someone in your life or no. To have one member who represents the world to you is enough . Life goes on. Enjoy the moment  and search for what makes you happy . If you look around ; you will find happiness in the face of playing child, in the shining sun, in the flowers and in the old man’s smile who says “Hello” . It’s like the old game that we use to play as kids ; the game when we use to search for happy things around. Play it now as an adult  and search for what makes you happy. Deep inside you know it’s there.

Be Happy

And So I had Cancer

 

I use to read in books that disease don’t differentiate between young or old; but now when I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 25 I believed that fact.

I am the only son for my parents and I am the big brother to one little sister. Since the age of 10 and I became orphan as my father died of the same disease. Now , I inherited it.  It’s not cancer that I fear but it’s how my family will be without me. Being the only one who takes care of my old mother and my little 12 years old sister. How would they live without me ?

I wonder why doctors say that early detection of cancer can help save life. When the truth is you don’t know you have cancer unless it’s metastasized to other organs. Which is what  happened to me?  As the symptoms didn’t show and I wasn’t diagnosed until too late to intervene.  The fact of cancer is that you don’t have time ; you don’t have time to decide nor to take a breath . In a moment you might be alive and tomorrow – no one knows .

People and family looks in a sympathetic way , while doctors want a fast reply about your decisions and your friends everyone gives an opinion or  not to go for surgery others say ” Yes do it ! “.   I got confused and to some point I didn’t what to do nor who to guide me . Whatever it was ; it has to be done fast.  Meanwhile ; the image of my father when he was suffering after the he undergone multiple surgeries was haunting me .

I use to hear nurses saying in empathy how unlucky I was ! Being a handsome young man and having cancer. Everything is destiny . Before we were born our lives were written, I am Muslim , and I believe in Allah and that He would guide me and be the most merciful .

So that day the doctor was waiting a reply from me whether I agreed for surgery or no. I made a prayer and then I agreed. Whatsoever the consequences could be !  And if either ways we are dying ; I want to die trying .

 

” There are always a wings of hope “

When Souls Meet !

Would you believe it if I told that souls meet ! That they had travelled and met way before you see them.

Haven’t you ever met someone who thinks like you ; that you feel so comfortable to and you said to yourself ; “ I must have met him before .“

Well Yes,  you did … People like those comes ones and they disappear fast too. Identical souls attract. But you get this chance once in a life time ; its either you grab it or let you go . Thus , you may never see your soul mate again. And you may not even meet at all … but have the confident that they exist . Even though  you both were meant for each other but not you might be together for any life circumstances.

Life is all about how happy we can be ? about finding the real one . About creating your dream and living it . When you wish for it and you can see it , you feel it ; it’s going to be way  different  !  

Throughout your life  you will meet one person who is like no other; someone you can tell everything and they will never judge you ; someone you will never get bored with; someone who calls up just to say; “ Hey I miss you ! ”

We live in a long journey ; in search for wealth , happiness , others for many reasons. However, the fact is that we are searching for something . In an endless journey ! Parted we all and let you heart touch them and let your soul feel it. 

Can miracles happens ? Can dreams come true ?  or we are just living in illusions !

In the beauty of the mighty mountains , in the green valleys and the under the deep blue sky we sat. staring at each other ; like it’s a dream. Holding hands like we are going to be apart for ever. Dreaming together like one . Because it’s no more , you and me . It’s US … Us together against the whole world.

Though it’s far from reality but we lived that little moment together with my soul mate. A moment that our mind creates just to escape from the harsh life and make beautiful dream of its own.

How happy you are ?

It’s never easy to adjust with this fast pace of life. It’ s not easy to wake up and find yourself still where you were. It’s even harder when you don’t find anyone around. Whether all what’s happening around you is real or not ; we sometimes tend to believe it . And it affect us greatly .

How can everyone around you be just fake , cheaters and most of all they look for their own benefits . Sometimes this causes some frustrations . Imagine when you try to help everyone , when you try to smile and do you work in the best way ; just to make a difference , to be able to create what others didn’t .. However, it’s not that simple because always there are people put you down and take advantage of you. Maybe in such world being honest and humble is just not accepted.

Happiness is something we choose not which is forced on us, happiness is a state we live . And I believe everyone wants to be happy but just don’t know how ? The environment , the people , the work  and most of all YOU , are all variables that changes this state . There are times when we wake up , the sun is so bright with beautiful clouds decorating the blue sky , with songs of birds around ; such weather can cause happiness within us . So we start in a perfect morning ! We go out have the breakfast , go to work cheering ; even though if we get tensed by something at work , you should try to ignore it because you started your day in a happy way and nothing should disturb that state of inner peace you reached.

Who doesn’t want to be happy ?

Of course we all do , but we just gave the authority for the type of life to run us and in fact change us . That we forgot who we were . A life that only looks at how much you got and how much you are ready to pay. A life were people aren’t honest anymore , a life where a person says how are you just to get a favor done,  a life where no true friends around , a life where family can’t understand you feelings . A life where you find yourself alone regardless of the people who says they care.

We reached to a point where we don’t demand anything from anyone. We just want to be left alone with our sorrow , with our tears with our own selves .

After all this , do you still want to ask me , Am I Really Happy ?

I would say Yes ! I am .  But many would say this and shorten the dialogue with you , when they have a lot of burden to carry in their shoulders , just too heavy to speak them out . So it’s easier for anyone to say ; “ Oh Yea , am so happy  ! ”

Nevertheless , if you look at their eyes you will see how happy they are ?  or how miserable they might be !

Imagine life without worries , without stress , without work and without people who cause you pain .  I assume that such life don’t exist unless if we try to believe so . Unless if we keep a smile no matter what we face during our day , unless if we keep saying “ I am happy and nothing will change my mood”.

Think it and believe it and so you will be . And every time the sun sets  , dream again , be happy and start tomorrow  all over again in hope of changing the world .

Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember leaving open.

Forever

 

Before we even meet

You disappeared

 

Before we get closer

You are not there

 

Before I can say it 

I didn’t dare it

 

I  want to keep you

Forever

 

I want to know you

And trust you

 

I  want you back

In my life

 

For you’re the sweetest

 Thing that happened

 

I  want to keep you

Forever
