You never left me !
Here comes another long weekend with Easter Friday and Monday off ! It is a family reunion time. I would be as usual busy doing laundry, buying groceries , house cleaning , cooking and meeting some family friends. During this busy schedule will I be able to keep you away from my mind? Not at all!!
Last summer I flew back home just to meet you and rest of the family. You were there at Islamabad airport to welcome me with open arms. We all had a such a good time together during family feast that you had arranged for me especially. After few days you left for official world tour along with sister in law and promised me that you would be back in time soon to say farewell to me before my departure to Canada .
I do not understand to this day what happened after that. Events seem to be muddled up in my mind. All I can remember is that you were sleeping very soundly and did not wake up to my cries and sobs. An unfortunate car accident took you and sister in law away from me for ever.
A friend said to me “Your brother has not left ! He is on a new journey She is right ! Your good deeds, honesty, integrity , highest level of commitment to civil service, never ending support to family and friends are like a beacon of light for us. But your footsteps are too big and my small feet do not fit into them. No matter I will follow you and your principles because you have never left my heart and soul .
