Met one such inspiring man a few days back. I can’t believe he is no more.
No matter how hard I’m trying, its tough to not think about him.
Why am I trying hard because I’m unable to understand that why I’m feeling so bad at a loss of a person whom I never met & have known him for just 2 weeks to be precise.
I came across his blog & as I read his about page it touched my soul. He mentioned that he is diagnosed with cancer & the treatment is “Palliative & not Curative.”
As I kept reading what he had to share I was in complete awe with all that this Man had to give to all. From his great spirit of opening up to people in such a condition, the courage that it takes for an introvert to share such an important aspect about his life that too while going through so much of pain in life.
And while facing all the health issues, he continued to inspire so many people through his uplifting thoughts, sharing such lovely inspiring poetry & other beautiful blogs about nature, flowers & the list goes on & on. He seemed to me a wonderful man from all that I read on his blog.
I loved spending time exploring & reading his wonderful thoughts on varied topics.
Then last week I saw a post where he shared that he got a severe cardiac problem & wouldn’t be active for a week as doctor has advised him to stay away from computer & take rest. He also mentioned that its very tough for him to stay away from blogging because that’s a very important part of his life now.
Felt very bad to read this but like his other friends, even I wanted him to take care of his health first before he gets to blogging again, so I messaged him to give top priority to his health.
I was praying for his good health & waiting for a week to pass soon, so he could share something with us. Just to hear from him.
and then I come to know that this great Man is no more. As I write this, my eyes are filled with tears again because I’m feeling pain of missing someone great from my life.
As I read the message of his death, I couldn’t control my feelings. I cried then wiped my tears quickly thinking of what will I say to my family when they ask the reason for me being like this, that I’m crying for a blogger friend whom I just met. How will I explain them that it seems to me that I know this man from a long time through his thoughts… But I’m thankful for my wonderful husband, who like always handled my emotions very well as I shared with him about this loss & gave me courage to deal with it. He didn’t ask me any questions, just sat with me to make me feel better reminding me that how my blogger friend was going through so much pain being sick & may be this is The best decision God could take for him.
They live to encourage & leave this earth leaving a lot to learn from their lives.Who would not feel sad when such people are not there any more.
I don’t want to say such people die because I think such people truly live in the form of their wonderful thoughts in the hearts of people still alive. In the hearts of people, who get inspired by such souls. In the heart of the wonderful family closely related with him.
I know a lot of people are strongly affected by this loss & there are a lot of them whom I don’t know, but it’s very important for me to share my feelings with you all at this point of time. Pain is pain, you cannot measure who has less or who has more. All we know that when in pain, it hurts. I pray for all as I write this that may God give strength to all to deal with this or any pain in their life.
Important because, I wanted to mention about this great man who inspired me big time in just a short span of 2 weeks & I wanted to have a post in my blog talking all about him & another reason being, a writer can never feel better until a thought stays in his mind, it has to come out.
