Its so damn strange

Just when I thought nobody could have a life worse than me, nobody could possibly be bearing the pain that I was going through, I meet this stranger. Well he is supposed to be my cousins cousin. So its neither a far off relative, nor a pretty close one. So I prefer to refer him here as a stranger first, cos thats what he was when I met him on Friday.

In a span of 2 days he has left me speechless. I was told he doesnt talk, doesnt smile, doesnt do any of the stuff that normal people do and there he was finding solace in his conversations with me. I find it strange cos its funny that we always tend to feel that our problems are the biggest and the worst. But when I even try and imagine what munna must be going through, I fail to do so. Thats cos I just cant imagine that! He talked, he shared, he laughed, he cried (twice)… he shared all that he possibly could.

And today he said something that seems so strange and odd, that coming from a person who met me just 2 days back and I have no clue when I will be meeting him again, I just choked on emotions. He called me up from the railway station to tell me that I reminded him of his mother, who he lost just a month back.

Exactly. I was left as speechless and thoughtless as you can possible imagine.

This is something that he wrote and shared with me….. So heres to you munna :). Am sorry for publishing it without your permission. Hope you will forgive me. Its titled “She knows”.

I’m calling out to angels
Coz I don’t believe in gods
I know u know what I want
But I was too high to say it all along

I know u know what I mean
I know u can save
But I know u wont
Because she knows

I still hope u to come
Like the bird rises from its ashes
And ever since these mirrors of existence
Have been showing me the illusion

I know u know what I mean
I know u can save
But I know u wont
Because she knows
But I know u wont
Because she knows
That is why!?
