Fluid, lucid, ambiguous, and vague
All at once mixed together.
Time is rather a difficult concept
To grasp and to comprehend.
But, in its own way of telling
Time will teach you a lot of things.
It will teach you to love a bit more
Even to the person whom you love most.
And to gift a simple smile to that person
Whom you used to hate all your life.
Time will tell you again and again, that living
And enjoying the present is more important than
Worrying about an unpredictable future
Or repenting on an unchangeable past.
It will also show you clear as a crystal
That there need not be any reasons or excuses
When it’s the time to let go,
Or when it’s the time to hold on.
Time will remind you in a subtle way
To love yourself first,
And then to your dear ones secondly.
As it is the right thing to do.
Among all the lessons time could teach
There’s one more yet to tell.
Most importantly time will teach you that,
Worst kinds of heartbreaks and wounds
Would never heal completely.
We just get used to living through the pain.
