The cool weather and fond memories...This is what I encountered when I went for a walk today evening. The road I walked was a familiar one, the one I frequented once a upon a time during school. As I walked, the music blared on my Ipod and memories came flooding back.

I just kept imagining that I would see you. I would meet you as you very often would. I would see your smiling face. I still remember when I was at 6AM during the vacations keeping my resolve of everyday morning walks and the surprise on my face when I saw you. What would I give to see you , your smile, your face once again!

Your memories seemed to be the flavour of the day. I saw a bike just like yours. The same bike that you promised to take me out for a spin. You still have to keep the promise. Maybe one day you will.

Loads has changed since you left us. My dreams, my life, me. But you will always remain in my prayers. I will always think of you on your birthday (July 30th , yes I haven't forgotten). I will always think of you when I walk in our garden. I just hope that you are happy wherever you are. May your soul rest in peace, dear friend.

Coming from an avid biker and a wannabe-but-no-time-to-write-writer and of course a person who changed drastically after a similar incident... that paragraph really touched my heart!

Memories of a lost one haunt us in anycase.
Memories of a lost one who we either really cared about, or someone who we never really told how we really felt about them - now they pierce.

Nevertheless, well written, and touching. :) You go girl. :)
