The Last Sigh

Megha Sharma

“If I had known the last time I kissed you, that it was the last time…I would have never let go.” (Friends)

But we never get to know…do we? We never realise that this might be it, until it slips out of our hands to be lost forever.

That one moment of clarity about the future of things, the future of relationships eludes us all. Regrets, ruminations and resolutions follow, but to no avail.

Love is indeed hopelessly blind, deaf and sometimes even mute!

A feeling heart will always err atleast once before it strikes it right somewhere. A logical brain is less likely to blunder, though all calculations and theories have provenly failed when pitted against raw emotion.

Why that happens is a question that has haunted thinkers and philosophers since time immemorial.

BUT – and this is a big one – not all situations, not all people warrant such feelings and efforts from us. Many a times, nay, most of the times we bestow our best where it is not needed…where it is not desired.

I guess what I am trying to say here is that that last sigh, that last tear, may just be a prelude to a last laugh. A last laugh that will signify your victory over past regrets, past heartaches.

A last laugh that will be the first of a better life…the first coming from a much-loved you.
