maut hee, aakhree, bas dawaa hai mere,
ONLY DEATH IS THE LAST REMEDY FOR ME - IN SHORT,

khush rahe, tuu sadaa, ye duaa hai mere,
MAY YOU REMAIN HAPPY, ‘TIS MY BLESSING,

khush rahe...
BE HAPPY...

khush rahe ...
BE HAPPY...

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.
