And here I was into the wild, thinking about you like I always wanted to.
And here I was right next to you, thinking about what to say next.
And here I was passing by, finding myself speechless when you were in front of me.
Life has a way to create acquaintances. I remember accidentally meeting a lot of people throughout my life. Some of those have had a lasting impact on how I am today. My friends for instance. Some of them really understand me. For instance, two of my best friends (actually three) have been with me for over a decade, and even though I'm not in touch with them as often, they understand that I might be busy and would get back to them whenever I can. This sometimes leaves a gap of years, but they are still solid and connected to me. That feels like real friendship. It's unique to have something like that with.
One day, when I was stuck in traffic for a few hours, one of these friends (not naming them to maintain privacy) went out of the way to come to me primarily because they felt that I would be alone and should be given some company in the midst of traffic. That's the level of care that makes me feel fortunate of the time I'm in.
I'm not perfect, not the best friend, probably not a great guy either; but I'm lucky. I'm lucky to have the most supportive and encouraging parents, the quietly understanding brother, and some remarkable friends, who have tested times to show how much they love and care for me.
I always think about the movie, Sultan, and how his friend sticks with him until the end, encouraging him at each stage. That's what I too have in my life, and I feel happy that I have something like that to cherish with. It's pretty unique .
So, today's post is for the best friends I have in my life. May they be happy and may I be more responsive to them.
They've done more than enough just by bearing me. Now it's my turn.
For the world would not make us apart,
