Time is not a healer!

There is nothing more deceptive than a smile. And no one knows this better than the people who hide behind them. Some flash their teeth as a polite warning to their enemies. Some put on beaming faces to keep their tears from falling. Others wear silly grins to mask their fear. But then, there is that rare smile that is actually genuine, it’s the smile of a person who knows his troubles will soon, be over.
 
When my father was in so much pain, I sat there next to him, holding his hands and kept smiling hiding my tears and fear, to help him forget his pain I read his favourite books Hafez, history of Iran, and books about people like Sattar Khan, Bagher Khan, Amir Kabir, Mosadegh and many other patriots. I was just 8.


I had a dream last night. He was alive and wanted to hug me, I smiled to keep my tears from falling. I told him I’ve missed you so much. Where have you been for so many years? You can come and see me, but how about me? What do I do, when I need you and miss you? Everyday I waited, watching for you to walk through the door. After many years I accepted, you would never return home.


I stopped smiling, and said I can’t pretend and smile, come back home … … … I felt a terrible burn in my heart and that woke me up

Time is not a healer and the pain of losing someone does not end and gets deeper and deeper.
