Is time the biggest healer,
Or the strongest pain concealer,
Does time kick in Amnesia,
Or gives our heart a dose of Anesthesia,
Do memories of ache and agony just fade away,
Do the smile's hide what the soul may betray.......
Is time really the best healer?
Does time really heal the wounds of the heart and sorrows of the soul?
I dont think so. Time may cover the lesion with the scar tissue but the pain is never lessened. The scab formed in the heart may get buried beneath the layers of different priorities and other responsibilities but whenever we sit back, memories scrape the safety net and the lacerations surface up, still very raw, still very painful.
Today is the day when my mother was admitted in the hospital for her by-pass surgery 15 years back that was scheduled to take place the next day. She passed away during the operation. Apparently the doctor who was supposed to test her blood for allergies negligently ignored it and after the successful surgery when the injection was administered for thickening the blood, her body reacted adversely and her heart failed. A life was lost and a family was shattered. My Father never really got over the pain and loss and passed away after 2 years.
Life did get busy with bringing up my 3 kids but the pain has not reduced. Whenever I sit idly, the memories keep rushing back and the pain oozes out staining my life with tears and sorrow.
Time only makes you busy and increases your responsibilities leaving you less time to think and remember your old wounds and unbearable grief.
