Keep smiling!

by | Nov 7, 2009 | 20 comments

Every morning, ..walking through the corniche, so many faces pass by so fast..
…day by day a passing face got clearer and clearer… by day we started to exchange smiles..
…day by day we expect to meet each other…
‘Just for a Smile’
couple of months went by…’smiling’
Last month, we stopped to talk to eachother
We had such a beautiful conversation, which ignited a new friendship..
Sadly, last week I came to know the truth about my new friend; …my friend is dying.


The last words I heard from my friend was….

‘Keep Smiling! Your smiles made me smile! ‘

“A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just have to let go.”

Thanks Sara, Ed for pulling me out of my depressed mood through emails. Sometimes a look, a smile, a miss call, a single word email could make you feel special and make a huge difference.

Thanks Buds!

    use the legacy your friend left Nivin…..use that camera and with every click of the shutter….remember…..remember that s/he smiled FOR you, and you should pass that forwards.

    • WildBlack

      I’ll never forget her smile.

  3. Ed

    Sorry, but like they said, Keep smiling and chin up. Get back behind the camera and Keep us smiling.
    Later bro…Ed

    I’m so sorry about your friend Nivin. They came into your life for a reason, even if for a short time, to teach you something about life and yourself. Nothing is by chance. Learn, live, and never forget something so important and precious, a lesson left by the soft swiftness of butterfly wings can make a long and lasting impact on the world.

      Colleen….I’m learning things like never before!

    • WildBlack

      I need more smiles than anyone man!

    I’m so sorry Nivin. I don’t think I could say it better than Colleen. I know you will always remember that smile. 🙂

    • WildBlack

      Di, I never thought it will be this hard to smile again.

    Wow. A thousand words…

    Just as easily as she came into your life for a reason, you most likely came into her life for a reason as well.

    “Go on and make a joyful sound (picture).”

      Missing those morning walks with you.

    Nivin, all of the very best things cost us dearly..

    What a beautiful thing that you were able to be an encouragement, and a source of joy that was so desperately needed. Not that it makes the pain any easier to bear, but I’m so glad for your friend, that she had you walk past and smile each day, and that she has come to be special to you.

    Keep being your amazing self.

    • WildBlack

      Jo! You are right! Its costing me dearly.
