The individual journeys we embarked upon,
Entwined us through a common medium,
From attending ‘at-times’ boring lectures,
To mass bunking the sessions,
We have done them altogether..
With copying of assignments and notes,
To helping out during all our examinations,
We have had our share,
Of a roller coaster ride..
Those first ever midnight birthday wishes,
Celebrations at one another’s place,
When consistent cake facials, leg pulling and pranks,
Were no longer tagged as misnomers,
Hardly did we realize every time,
These memories were for the lifetime..
Even as we grew apart and our paths diverged,
And our lives made us more indulged,
Our bonding just deepened..
Amidst the darkest of my times,
You were my strength,
Who stood the test of time,
During my highs and the uncertainty,
And I knew, I had the treasure for eternity..
Those unanticipated calls and hangouts,
Those long pointless digressive talks,
Catching up after ages,
Make me pour out pages,
Reminiscing and laughing out at ourselves,
Only imply things had been all the same..
At every instance, you have been there to share,
Find you beside when hardly people care,
Thank you for ‘being there’..
Our lives are a lot different now,
But our hearts are still the same,
The special people in my life,
Who made it colorful, vibrant and worth living,
Thanks a lot for bearing my ranting,
Listening to my gibberish chattering,
Helping me out when I was floundering..
You are the family outside my family,
Cheers to the base of every relation,
That trust has always had its foundation,
The lifeline, lifelong bonding..
Happy Friendship Day! ❤
P S – Cannot help but mention this lovely line from F.R.I.E.N.D.S..
“I will be there for you..
For you were there for me too!”
