The things that promise to stay with us for ever for the belief we have in them might not always fulfil those sacred promises. Priorities keep changing with the passage of time, situations and circumstances surrounding people and events undergo unnoticeable transformations and in the process, promises remain as promises to be fulfilled in the next life.
Even the sacred books emphasize on the theory that the world is an illusion and nothing can be assured of permanent existence. While the emphasis in that case is on materialistic things, human feelings and relations too are bound to obey that theory of illusion and non-permanent existence. Even nature wishes to convey this particular idea to us. Every leaf and flower that takes life withers away and dies. The music of the nightingale comes to an end one day. Even the sun, which appears to stay fixed to the sky in atleast half of the world at any moment has to shed away its nature of permanent existence someday, if not in a few years atleast in few billion years.
When the mighty sun, often referred to as the sun god, cannot shield himself from that unavoidable death, human relations in no way can boost of being omnipresent in every frame of the past, present and the future.
Situations that have led to the creation of that relation might negate themselves to bury that relation in the deep sands of time. What has been an attracting factor the previous day might turn out to be the most undesirable one at the time of breakup. Those sweetest words exchanged between the two people might re implant themselves as the harshest and the cruellest words the world would have never head in the past. Silly fights that have boosted the relation in the past might now support the breakup.
But, there is something being missed out. The relation is broken because a relation is an encompassment of the feelings of two people and in most of the cases; it is the inability of one of them to understand the other that leads to the theory of non-permanent existence being satisfied. The other, who still wishes to keep the relation intact, preserves those sweet memories of the past and takes care of them not allowing them to leave the brain cells with a hope of the relation being revived.
Friendship and love might die but the feelings associated with them live for ever till the last sun sets.
