We are born and we die. This is one truth that cannot be marred or adulterated. The phrase sounds so simple and loose when we see it solely through the realm of words. But when we travel deeper and beneath the obvious, we realize that we just don't live and die, but we share several little fragments of our lives with other people. These people are the ones that we learn to love, wish to be with, and care for. They are our friends, family, acquaintances, and sometimes even that stranger that we cross or exchange looks at the daily subway or the usual coffee house. We are destined to start the journey of our life and end it from darkness to darkness. What we come across in the middle is the light of people who are dear to us. But life itself is not a lifetime affair; it has its conclusion, it has its summary. And it is at this point of time when we painfully accept the separation of someone dear and immensely loved...
