To Meet and Depart...

Have you ever wondered
how strangely beautiful it is-
the way people meet and depart?

It’s like little soap bubbles- hundreds and thousands of them-
forming and disappearing like they never existed-
leaving behind their soft wetness on your palms
to remind you that yes! They did exist!
And it’s like those millions of stars in the night sky-
each one far away from the other-
and yet-
each one so near to the other…
popping into our vision somewhere between their beginning and end…
lighting up the black void, if only for a while…
and deftly merging into the sunlight- tip-toeing out of your lives-
only to subsist somewhere else in someone else’s sight.
And people are like the roads that we travel upon-
helping us move from one point in time and place to another-
giving us company for that particular distance in our life for which they were destined
and then leaving us behind or being left behind-
whatever be the case-
to show some others their way through life-
while we move on with our journey- travelling on yet other roads.
Some that we walk upon everyday…
some once in a while …
and some….once in a lifetime…
some with pits and manholes…
some with trees shading the sides….
some busy with traffic..
some solitary for life..

And isn’t it beautifully strange how people meet and depart? ?.....

The Worldly Hope men set their Hearts upon
Turns Ashes--or it prospers; and anon,
Like Snow upon the Desert's dusty Face,
Lighting a little hour or two--is gone.
