If you read or hear the quote "the best is yet to come" hold on and believe it! It's not your fault if that doesn't convince you, It didn't convince me either at a time! But that's the best thing about time that it changes, and so does your life! So yes! The best do comes! You just have to trust yourself! And hold on to what makes you happy!
For some reason I was never one to whom children would get drawn towards. And I never knew how to make children like me either. Having lived away from home for the past nine years, I missed the opportunity of seeing my younger cousins, nieces and nephews. Today I met a flower. Her name is Afrin. I saw this tiny girl in a floral frock standing behind a pillar in front of me. Sometimes she'd hide behind the lady she was with and take a sneak peek at me and hide herself when I'd look up. I asked her to come over and she hurriedly came to where I was seated and looked at the books and stationery in front of me. "Aapni Ki ey Shob kichu porben?" "Are you going to read all this?" She asked with wide eyes. I asked her to tell me her name and she burst out saying her whole name, class roll number and even started telling me the names of her friends in school and their roll numbers. She recited the alphabet. I still laugh when I remember how she said "Ello-menno-p" I laughed and made her say L-M-N-O-P. I'm sure she forgot it the very next moment. Because she was so awestruck by my colourful pens and highlighters by which she scribbled AFRN on the back cover of my notebook. She didn't know what came after 19 but she knew the rest after 21. I gave her a toffee that I found in my wallet, in response to which she smiled and said "dhonnobad!" She was 7 years old. Almost the same age as Asifa. As Afrin waved goodbye to me, I looked at her tiny hands, her sweet smile and her big eyes filled with laughter and innocence. I couldn't help but think, Is this what Asifa was like? Afrin.
