with what i still remember...

...what i still remember...was the day i woke up trembling in my sleep...tears pouring out of my eyes...and i remember everything, everything that felt so cold...but suddenly i had felt...my mothers hand come up on my back...patting me gently...leaving gentle trails of her sweet sleep, for me to swallow...! you know what that taught me...it taught me to sacrifice...!:]

...what i still remember...is the story behind those pen marks on my door...they each have been marked a bit above the other...to measure each mm i had grown every year...! my grand daddy used to tell me...to aim to be as tall as the door...but somehow...inspite of the years that have gone by...i am still 2 feet shorter then it...but you know what that taught me?...it taught me to ALWAYs aim high...and never to loose hope because even if i don't reach the moon..i will still get to land among the stars...:]

...what i still remember...was the day i thought my friends would not turn up for my birthday party...i still recall those effortless tears that had trickled down my cheek...and when suddenly they turned up at the foot of my bed...singing happy birthday <out of tune> at the top of there lungs...i had suddenly smiled through my tears...! and you know what that taught me...it taught me to value:]

...what i still remember..was the day i thought i had lost you at the bus station, i still recall the way my big sisters hand had left my tiny four year old fingers in the crowd...i still remember the relief when just after a minute or so i found you...but you know what those 60 seconds taught me...they taught me how to miss somebody:]

...what i still remember, was the day my high school enemy, had awkwardly thrown her arms around me, crying...she was asking for a new start...and inspite of the fact she had completely annihilated my entire life...i felt sorry for her...and you know what that taught me...it taught me to forgive:]

what i still remember was the day i saw my chum crying...i summon up that it was the day when  i was also plaintive over something...but seeing his precious tears wasting away...my lamentations had taken a turn...and now the tears which poured out of my eyes were for the drops that were pouring out of my best friends eyes...:)...and you know what that day taught me...it taught me how to care:]

...what i still remember...was the day someone i loved...asked me to promise upon something...i still bear in mind that conversation...he had said he felt insecure,as if we were drifting away...he had asked me to swear never to leave him...and i did...i had solemnly pledged that i never would...and its been three years...i am still with him...and you know what that taught me...it taught me how to keep promises:]

...and after all that...
what i still remember...is how to LOVE...because every love requires the above...:)
