Time flies. Circumstances change. Faces become unfamiliar. We age.
It is ironical though – the fact that we meet millions of people in different phases our lives, but we manage to stick on to only a few. A few become strangers, a few, acquaintances, a few, family, and a few, friends, for life – because, we connect with them like we do with nobody else. The wavelength, the rapport, the understanding, the warmth.
To those few of you in my life – you belong to me.
It doesn’t matter in which part of the world you live, it doesn’t matter if we don’t converse everyday, it doesn’t matter that today ain’t friendship day – but – I love you.
I am, because you help me be.
Thank you, for, you connect with me the way I am, you connect with my flaws, with my follies. With my imperfections. With my eccentricity. With my absurdity.
This bond we share, just so you know, is for forever.
During moments when you’re hollow,
Try to search for the sun in your rainbow,
A memory, a keepsake,
Or perhaps, a lone flower in your wake,
A ray of light that’d help you find your ore,
Or possibly give you reasons to smile some more,
Because, what’s hurting you now, ain’t just making you whine,
It is in fact, helping you seek your sunshine!
You’re one of a kind, you’re unique by design,
You are a star, born to shine,
You don’t have to fit in,
You don’t have to give in,
Be your own,
Find your own special zone,
Don’t lose yourself in the crowd,
Carve your own niche, make your own mould!
“Erm…No, but I’m nervous. What if things turn haggard?”
“Chill. It’ll be a smooth sail.”
“I might fall. I might fail.
I wanna have a ball, but I know I am too frail”.
“You are meant to reach the stars.
Begin to look, beyond your scars.”
“You haven’t given up on me yet?”
“Never have. Never will. You’ll always have my back. For you, are my best bet.”
You ain’t meant to be, in a cage, confined,
You ain’t meant to be, by boundaries, defined,
With your attitude, slay, with your confidence, stun,
Brace yourself for everything under the sun,
Break all barriers, set your soul free,
Be as wild as you’d want to be,
Flap your wings for you are meant to fly,
And you wouldn’t know what you can do, until you try!
An idea, A thought,
A poem, A plot,
A picture, A painting,
A song you might want to sing,
Sober or slick,
Well thought out, or just candid and quick,
Create, something new,
Create, something out of the blue,
Create, something that stays to your heart true,
Create something, that speaks for you!
“That’s a nice house. But isn’t it a bit too small?
Would it be able to fit in you all?”
“No, but this would, literally, bring us together,
Get us to see a lot more of each other,
Teach us to adjust and accommodate,
Make us spend a lot more time every day than just on an ear-marked date,
Above everything else, I hope the smaller space, between us, helps reduce the distance,
And turn this house into a home in every real sense!”
