I was devastated, when my
sweetheart died of cancer.
The death of a loved one can
throw anyone into deep depression.
I believe in the doctrine of rebirth,
and future life.
Every birth and rebirth, he would
come into existence in my life.
I kept silent, humming
songs in honour of his memory
to enrich my life.
Dealing with loss of a loved one
isn’t easy and takes time.
I was swimming upstream in
the river struggling against flow
and was shattering after his death.
I feel that true happiness is nothing,
if affection towards one’s relatives
is not established.
