if

by Aqeela Naqvi

if i had to give up everything – every happiness, every joy, every event i had somehow deemed important in my lifetime of twenty-six years; every moment, every place, every person i had ever thought i loved — if i had to give up everything i had ever thought i loved in exchange for a single day, for a few fleeting hours with you, i would do it.

and i would never look back.
