A friend sent this image on WhatsApp to me a few days ago and I have been thinking about the message that it conveys all this time.
Guzar jaathay hain…..khubsurat lamhen….
yunhi musafiron ki tharah…..
Yaaden vahin khadi rah jaathi hai….
rukkay raasthon ki tharah….
Ek umr ke baad us umr ki baathein umr bhar
yaad aathi hai…
Par wah umr phir umrbhar nahin aathi…!
Beautiful moments pass away just like passing travellers…
Memories remain static just like the roads traversed…
After an age memories of the past keep haunting for the rest of our years…
But those moments never return throughout our lives…!
Ah, fill the Cup – what boots it to repeat
How Time is slipping underneath our Feet
Unborn tomorrow and dead Yesterday
Why fret about them if Today be sweet!
~ The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Snoopy’s pithy observation says enough about this topic and I simply leave it at that and close this post.
