I sit here in this empty hallway, thinking about the memories that are engraved, in a way, here.
Memories of you and I, spending quiet moments, appreciating each other’s existence. Memories where I couldn’t take my eyes off you and you stood still, beautiful as always. Whenever I crossed you in this hallway, I couldn’t resist appreciating your grace and beauty. You, in turn, never said a word. But your presence said it all.
All your profound expressions, you expressed with grace. I still cannot forget the day I first saw you. It was love at first sight and I couldn’t hold back my feelings! I also cannot forget the day you came into this house, our home. It was pure bliss to have you around. The joy of having your quiet yet strong presence was the strongest of feelings I had felt till date.
Today I stand alone in a home we made together, now abandoned.
So I take this moment to say that I miss you. I miss standing so close to you, tracing your curves, looking at you with eyes and heart full of love. All that I am today is because of you. It is you who inspired me to become an artist. It is you who aroused my love for art!
And yet, I have to let you go today, to another appreciator of beauty, my most honoured, beloved Hussain painting.
