If She Were Mine

“If she were mine”, expressed the son to his father.

Father promptly replied, “Look son, only because I said it to your mother then, I have a lovely wife, you have a wonderful mother and we have a great family. ”

You should express it to her and let her decide!

Son agreed.

Years later, the story repeats.

The Unheard

Her father had posted her a letter; a letter to the loving daughter who was studying in the far away land.  She kept postponing the reading to tomorrow every day stating she was too busy. Today she had dropped it in water while taking out form her bag and no words were visible. It was all gone.

Who knows! May be some things are untold. Or it is that they are told but unheard? Was it meant to be so? One thing is true though that “We are never too busy!”.
