Today is the birthday of a friend whom i lost long time ago. Our meeting was just a matter of chance life puts forward for most of us and losing his friendship was a matter of fate where chance simply stays back.
Being social by nature, human beings tend to have too many acquaintances among which only some are called as “true friends”. He was one of them, one of those people whose number does not exceed the fingers of a hand.
We did not spend plenty of time together, yet every single minute he provided to me brought a life experience for me. He showed me the face of a good personality yet at the same time gave me the glimpse of a bad person so that i would be prepared in life against them.
He gave me countless hopes yet taking them back one by one in time showing that life does not always give us what we want.
He was there for me most of the time when i need to share a smile or just a cry still being invisible for the other times making me realize that sooner or later we will lose our close ones no matter how bitter the truth is.
He was a model for me to be ambitious in life but also he taught me to let go the things as nothing should be taken too much serious after all life was just a temporary phase, a play where we all act!
Sometimes he was too serious, that was the cold face of life, other times he was a total joker teasing me all the time trying to show me what things i should take serious and pay attention, what other things i should ignore and take easy.
Fighting was our biggest timepass…times spent by discussing, quarrelling, yelling, getting angry or frustrated…but next time we met, we were just two little kids trying to apologize and feeling shy at the same time, which showed me we should of course struggle for what we believe in, for our truths yet we should seek a way to establish peace no matter who is wrong/right.
Sometimes he was disappearing for days, weeks, even months and on his return each time i showed too much anger but now i understand he was just teaching me the feeling of “missing”.
He showed me that in every tear drop there was a story to hear, in every smile there was a feeling waiting to be shared, in every word there was a promise to be fulfilled, in every disappearance there was a return to be expected, in every happy moment there was a wish to keep it forever, in every person there was a life to live…
And for me in every friendship there is him to seek…
Today is a birthday of a friend whom i lost long ago. Most probably he will never see this post, less probably he will see the post but will ignore it. Still;
Thank you for your friendship even if it lasted for a short while…
Thank you for the experiences you helped to pile in my life…
