It is the time to dream big. It is the time to work hardest to get to the top. But-- Misfortune strikes at such an early age! You miss the bright sunshine of today. You miss the chilly winter and captivating spring of tomorrow. You miss many more years of delightful living on this earth – A sweet home, the kids playing around, Warm company of your sweetheart, Weekend outing at a quaint restaurant, Long drive to a seaside to enjoy the sunset at the horizon, Spending time in the peaceful abode of the hills, The appreciation for your acting on the screen! And, most of all, the grave fight you have fought Against all odds in your real life. The empathy, flooded emotion and bereavement -- Everything you missed! The deadly disease brought the curtain down, sudden and agonising. Wrong -- that You have lost the battle. But won it by a heart-warming margin to rejoice in another world.
