C'est La Vie


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

If only I knew how's it going to be
If only when I try to fix things, they became better
If only I was certain of how others feel
And if only people believed what I say...

If I knew how to show what I really felt
If I knew how to make people understand
If I knew how to make them believe
If I knew how to make them happy

If making people happy doesn't leave me sad
If making them understand doesn't make me an ignorant
If making them believe doesn't make me a liar
And if letting them know how I feel doesn't leave me numb

Things would've never reached that point
I know I would be in a much happier place
No one would ever blame me for not caring
No one would blame me for not thinking

That's life ....You're never certain
You never know, you're never sure
You're not going to live that dream of yours
And life would never be "trouble free"

You have to live with what you have
You try to fix the broken glass
You try to collect the shattered pieces
You make the best of everyday

It's like a train that never stops
Keep going through life without pausing
Just live each day and throw it behind you
Don't look back or you'll break your neck !

My dearest friend and their family misunderstood my one minute of conversation with my another friend. My twenty years of loveliest relationship with the family were broken. Tried my levels best.. But couldn't achieve anything.. All in vain.. Two years... We haven't seen each other.. Or talked.. Feels like dead.. If I could ever imagine......!!!

This sounds like my marriage with my wife, and she with me...to deal with what is and keep going.

If only I knew how's it going to be.....did captivate me today. One of my dear friend at the age of 73 passed away today viz.,1st Feb. 2011. When I got the news I and our family folks were shocked.
If only I knew he is going to leave this world to heaven, I would have met him at least a day earlier. One point I wish to tell...in life we should not postpone certain things...i.e., meeting our friends & consoling them esp. when ill. It costs.
