(written: December 28, 2006)

Are you my *Zahir? I hope not, because I want you to stay where I chose to leave you. I want you to live in my past and remain happy. I want both of us to remain happy in my past. I don’t want you wandering around in my present and taking the place of people who could have come into my life.

Don’t be my *Zahir. Don’t stay in the part of my life where both of us could never be happy.

(Zahir is a character from Paulo Coelho’s novel, ‘The Zahir’)
