Sigh!!!

Ever wondered the importance of sighs in your life?? Those simplest forms of expressions, too trivial but the most significant ones... like a sigh of a mother at the first sight of her little one... the sigh of relief at the sight of a person you were frantically searching for?? The sigh of that secret admirer each time his lady passes by...A sigh of a little gal as she hugs someone tight... that long and heavy sigh of loss at the fond remembrance of good days gone by... that soft, special sigh of a woman at the thought of her beloved...  that warm selfless sigh of a dog when you hug him tight ... the sigh of the farmer as the first droplets of rain splashes over his sun-kissed cheeks.... that silent soft sighs that hides in the sobs of a woman abandoned by her man...

Sigh!!! All these days I've noticed with awe how it would slowly mark its humble presence in the most emotional of situations.... n then slowly retreat with the same aura of anonymity it came in with. Now I guess the sigh has finally started marking its importance more distinctly as the other day... amongst all the stupid things I think/say.. when I mentioned the importance of Sigh over a Sigh!!! I was pleased to hear a few voices reflect my thoughts over the significance of a sigh.....

N so I Sigh!!! at the thought of all those wonderful sighs I've felt... the sighs I've let out... the least noticed, but the most delicate and beautiful form of expressions... I have ever known....

Sometimes it seems like every story of our lives leads up to a sigh, rather than a joyous exclamation mark, doesn't it ?

I guess we just keep persevering, looking for more happy sighs than sad sighs... (P.S. thats where having a dog is a blessing - they are a constant source of happy sighs :D )
