thoughts from my mind to yours

Dadubhai

Today, I hear your laughter in the skies, and I know you are the reason the sun shines a little brighter, the air smells a little sweeter and our hearts feel a little heavier, with all the love you shared…you always were and will forever be the best Dadubhai…

 

My grandfather always told us to lead our lives in a way so when we leave, our life can act as a guide to lost souls who are trapped in their thoughts/journey, to help them move forward. We lost our Dadubhai yesterday…he was our guiding light, our mentor, our friend whose strength surpassed the toughest of times…his life was a legacy of the message he shared…his heartwarming laughter, his never-ending quest for knowledge, his birthday messages to his grandchildren, his ability to make people feel so special and most of all his huge heart will forever remain with us all. We miss you Dadubhai ❤ ❤

Listening

When did the world stop listening?

You did not know…

for that chaos that used to be your mind,

had reluctantly calmed down that night,

leaving you in silence both inside and out.

 

Your hearing was getting worse each day,

but why did the world not hear what you had to say?

Did it need a hearing aid as well?

You did not know…

 

The long years you had travelled on this earth,

hearing the sounds of night and day…

hearing, the rivers flow into the ocean’s tides,

as the wind blew hard making the trees sway…

hearing, the twigs crush underneath your feet on the forest floor,

hearing, the drums in the thunder of the distant shores;

and the soft rain by your window…

hearing always hearing,

hearing, your mother’s soothing lullaby,  

the whisper of your love in your ear,

the cries of your children when they were sick,

the laughter of your grandkids rang loud and clear…

hearing always hearing,

until now…

But when did the world stop listening?

You did not know.

* It has been very hard to watch my grandfather slowly lose his hearing. We are very close and at 96 his mind is still strong but old age gets the better of him somedays…and he doesn’t want to have long conversations cause he can’t hear everything on the phone. This is inspired by my grandfather and others grandparents out there…even though you may feel like the world is not listening…we are. ..and we always will.
