Second Chance

Received in an email on 4/21/2010

It’s another morning…

…..  Again I have to go to office

Ohh, this is me… I shouted having a glance on my snap in today’s news paper.

But what the HELL it is doing in the death column??


One sec… Let me think, last night when I was going to bed I had a

severe pain in my chest, but I don’t remember anything after that, I

think I had a sound sleep.

Its morning now, ohh….. It’s already 10:00 AM, where is my coffee?

I will be late for office and my boss will get a chance to irritate me.

Where is everyone…??? I screamed.

“I think there is a crowed outside my room, let me check.” I said to myself.

So many people….. Not all of them crying…

But why some of them crying…

WHAT IS THIS??? I m laying there on the floor…

“I AM HERE” … I shouted!!! No one listen.

“LOOK I AM NOT DEAD” … I screamed once again!!! No one is interested in me.

They all were looking me on the bed.

I went back to my bed room.

“Am I dead??”  I asked myself.

Where is my wife, my children, my mom-DAD, my friends?

I found them in the next room, all of them were crying… still trying

to console each other.

My wife was crying… she was really looking sad.

My little kid was not sure what happened, but he was crying just coz

his mom was sad.

How can I go without saying my kid that I really love him, I really do

care of him. ??

How can I go without saying my wife that she is really most beautiful

and most caring wife in this world..??

How can I go without saying my parents that I m … just because of u ??

How can I go without telling my friends that without them perhaps I

have done most of the wrong things in my life… thanks for being there

always when I need them… and sorry for not being there when they

really need me..

I can see a person standing in the corner and trying to hide his tears…

Ohh… he was once my best friend, but a small misunderstanding made us

part, and we both have strong enough ego to keep us disconnect.

I went there.. And offered him my hand, “Dear friend… I just want to

say sorry for everything, we r still best friend, please forgive me.”

No response from other side, what the hell?? He is still preserving

his ego, I am saying sorry… even then!!!

I really don’t care for such people.

But one sec…. it seems he is not able to see me!!!! He did not see my

extended hand.

My goodness…  AM I REALLY DEAD???

I just sat down near ME; I was also feeling like crying…


I just wasn’t to make my wife, my parents; my friends realize that how

much I love them.

My wife entered in the room, she looks beautiful.

“YOU R BEAUTIFUL” I shouted.

She didn’t hear my words, in fact she never heard these words coz I

never said this to her.

“GOD!!!!” I screamed… a little more time plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..

I cried…

One more chance please… to hug my child, to make my mom smile just

once, to feel my dad proud on me at least for a moment, to say sorry

to my friends for everything I have not given to them, and thanks for

still being in my life….

Then I looked up and cried!!!!

I shouted….


“You shouted in your sleep,” said my wife as she gently woke me up.

“Did you have a nightmare?”

I was sleeping….

Ohh that was just a dream….

My wife was there… she can hear me…

This is the happiest moment of my life…

I hugged her and whispered…. “U R THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND CARING WIFE


I can’t understand the reason of the smile on her face with some tears

in her eyes, still I m happy…. 🙂


So, Now it’s not late.. Forget your egos, past……….., and express your

love to others………. Be friendly…………… keep smiling and be happy for


“Don’t hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep

you away from love”
