You can’t depend on someone or something by hoping that the person or the thing will be there for you, forever. In my childhood whenever I was in pain, I use to run to the window. There was a tree beside the window. My silent friend, who was always there for me, always listened what I said, never left. I used to talk with it silently. I believed; it was listening to me. Many times, I sat beside it when tears were falling from my eyes. It was there, I felt at least someone is there sitting beside me. I thought after my death, may be only the tree will remember me.
After some years, our neighbor cut that big tree, to make a big apartment. I surprised; it went out before me! I also learned; I can’t depend on anyone that they will stay with me for ever.
