To begin with this letter is for a number of unknown people, a letter of gratitude because I didn’t had the chance to say a big thank you to these people who probably has no idea about my existence nor do I know anything about them except for the only One Time I saw them while walking on the streets when I was having a rough day and seeing them instantly made me smile for no big reason and sometimes no reason is the biggest reason of all.
To the group of children who were busy having fun, fighting for the ice cream with their parents in their school uniform with their shoes quite undone, seeing your little giggles reminds me of the times when my parents used to tell me stories about how mischievous I was when I was exactly your age, the innocence in my eyes I always used to carry which, somewhere got buried with time now. To the group of teenagers, I know this phrase is confusing and you guys are probably busy discovering your true self but in the midst of chaos when I see you people having a good true laugh with your buddies, bunking your classes, holding hands with your sweethearts, I cannot refrain myself from going back to my good old school days, the sweet essence of nostalgia you bring to me is sometimes all I truly need, I end up missing all my friends and despite of our promises like ‘Friends Forever’ which we surely failed to keep, our ‘Forever’s’ were not long lived, but our memories are. To all the young adults and adults you are working so hard so achieve your goals, build a family, take care of your family and despite of the fact that your hours are the most tiring hours, every time you meet your loved ones you always make sure to greet them with a huge smile on your face and ponder all the love you can to your family. Your patience has taught me to be a better person and I am thankful to you all. To all the sweet grandparents, when I see you showering all the Love you have in store to the beautiful family you built it makes me smile the widest. Sometimes when I am passing by a house I see how delightfully you take a stroll in your garden and take care of all your plants and trees like they are your children, It warms up my heart and I end up remembering my grandparents who did the exact same things you do when they were alive.
Dear strangers thank you.
