It only takes a minute to develop a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a whole life to forget someone you love.â€
Many people, however, say that it is far more difficult to remember something than to forget it. But when this saying applies to someone you love, it usually takes a back seat.
She was the one with whom I had silently fallen in love. One may call it an infatuation as I was 16 then, but she was my first crush. I started to like her when we were in the middle of our Class X year. But I could never ever express my feelings for her.
My friends used to tease me by referring to me by her name and even dared me to go and propose, but I simply could not.
Very soon we were separated as our futures took us on different paths to different destinations. However, looking back I feel I should have expressed my love for her â€” come what may. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return; but it is even more painful to love someone and not find the cou-rage to put your feelings in words and let that person know how you truly feel.
I still feel that we would have been right for each other. Today I have no option but to lament for a girl who was my first crush. I wish I were able to go back to my school days and express my love for her. I know itâ€™s impossible, and perhaps it will take a lifetime for me to forget her.
