A journey they know nothing of

As the wedding got over. I stood ready n garlanded waiting to take a step towards my new life. At the threshold when I turned back , the last 25 years of my life started moving. The laughter n joy I shared with my parents.. the numerous sibling fights. The love selfless love showered by my grandparents. The night outs with my cousins. The journey of school n college. How many classes we had bunked n just sat n chatted n suddenly I could feel all that just fading only treasured by me . Deep in my memories forever. My next part of the journey was going to begin but why wasn't I able to take that step. Once more when I turned n looked back at my family. I wanted to turn the clock n just go back to my old life. But resignedly I had to accept this is the journey taken by every girl. The love n longing I saw in my father's eyes..The brave front he was putting up. It was hard for him to believe too his child had to go away . My cousins, friends all trying to smile n failing miserably. But does a girl really is prepared for the life ahead? I have always wondered.This is truly one of the hardest moments for the family. Sending her away. A journey they know nothing of .... to be experienced n waiting n praying with bated breaths that it turns out as beautiful as lovely as the first part of her journey
