Our life is like a tree.
‘Branches’ are the things we do in our life
and ‘leaves’ are the people we come across.
Such “Leaves of attachments are always wet”.
In life, we go through different stages,
different phases, just like a tree.
Leaves fall and grow, people come and go.
The important thing is what they leave behind.
Some will give happiness, some will cause pain.
What is to be remembered is up to us.
No leaf is going to last forever, but
there are a few we remember even after they’ve fallen,
kept in the lost pages to be cherished forever.
