“You are beautiful, miss”, he had said from behind, when we met for the first time. But I was indifferent to whatever was happening around me. I paid no attention to him, and continued to move towards my destination-but I didn’t even know where my destination was. I was heartbroken and shattered. “Listen miss, you left your mobile phone at the coffee shop”, he again called from behind. I took my mobile phone and ran away, without even thanking him.
Next morning, he met me again at the park. He came and sat next to me and asked what my name was. I told him that I wasn’t interested in talking to him and asked him to leave. I didn’t want to see his face. I was so annoyed that I didn’t even want his shadow to come near me. And today I can’t live without him, I always want him to be at my side.
His arrival has infused life into my inert self. After having been betrayed by the person I loved the most I didn’t trust anyone in this world. But it was him, his love towards me, his honesty, his sweetness and even his anger-every bit of him, that has revived me and has brought me back to life.
The failure of my first relationship had made me a cold blooded creature, deprived of all emotions-I had forgotten to laugh, to love and even to cry. But he taught me to live my life to the fullest, be self confident and be who I am. He is the reason that I am breathing today. He has come to me as if ‘life has come after death.’
