The city of dreams they call you. You are the reason for many smiles and you are the reason for many tears. You have been the reason for fulfilling many aspirations and you have been all about shattered dreams. You have been known to endure sweat, grit and challenges on the ones embracing you. You have been that sweet and passionate yet mysterious self too.
You have been all the above and beyond to me as well. I am no different than the others to walk into the labyrinth that’s you and get lost and yet be found.
You are the ocean in yourself. You are the expanse that ammases us all. You are a religion in yourself, who believe so. You are strength. You are passion. I do not beg to differ and so would be the feeling of all the hearts you cradle.
I wove my dreams and found my destinations. It’s not been an easy journey ;but who says life is an easy cake walk. Never had I thought that the goodbye to a you would be more difficult than the people I know that make you ‘You’.
I wanted to be tourist just for a day to catch your scent. We the residents and the visitors are like moths attracted to your fire. We burn, we die little each moment yet the attraction never subsides. I don’t know if I will ever fall in love with a city more than you.
Thank you for being you. Thank you for giving my strength. Thank you for letting me into your cocoon 11yrs back. I will forever be indebted to you. You will be my first most true love. Bombay!
