The Friendship That Is Precious!!!


And then one day suddenly, he calls me in the middle of night…
“What is it?” I ask, switching on the light...
He heaves a sigh making me dead curious…

"Is everything fine?”I smell something serious…

The silence he maintains is so similar to the dark night…

As if the time is at halt…it suddenly gives me a fright…
“Tell me what it is; you know you can share…”

I try to remain calm and remind him that I care…

“I just wished to share something with you,” he speaks…

“You may find it an odd hour…but emotions are above beliefs.”
“Oh yes, it is all right…I am here to listen to you,”

I become apprehensive, what actually he is up to!

As I pass through my assumption…

He takes the lead and finally starts the conversation…
“My life had it all, every comfort I asked for…

Unconditional love of people, more than I deserve…
I laughed and cried like a normal human…
Leading through situations…favourable or adverse…

I never needed more…I did not wait for a miracle…
God was kind to me…I had happiness in ample…”

When I met you, I was unable to understand…
Why did God make us meet…what were His plans!!
He always holds a purpose; I knew that was true…
That night I held my diary and wrote a line for you…
‘I do not know why we met and what role you will play…
But if I have come to know you, it has to have a reason…
No matter what rules the nature tends to follow…as…
God only knows- what will be the next season…’

Years passed by and we lived so many moments together…
We shared our worries….solved problems of each other…

Amid all these days, I forgot to look for the answer…
We met because we had to - I began to consider…

But suddenly as today I opened my diary
To share my feelings with it, just like I do daily...

I failed to inscribe my thoughts…my hands refused to write…
I know you must be thinking…I have lost it tonight…

But all this made me think…and finally drive a conclusion…
It was all basically a sign…a reply to my question…

You came in my life…as a friend- a companion- a guide…
Someone always ready to listen, to understand, to empathize…

A relation that was pious, away from all conditions…
We never made promises, we never had similar destinations…
If friendship had a definition, I could see it among us…
I know it is not something we need to even discuss…

But today as I find the reason of having you in my life…
I just called to share it…keeping rules of hour aside…

When I have you as my friend, I tend to decipher…
Where the need lies to pen down my feelings on paper…

This night I wrapped my diary and kept it in the store…
I know I will not be needing it anymore…

It might sound cliché, but I believe I must state…
Your friendship is an asset; I will always keep it safe…”

He took a deep breath and waited for my statement…

He did not know that few years back…I had lived the same moment…
For me he was an angel, who lifted me from my loneliness…
I never could really say, but today I knew I had to confess…
“I know what you said is all very true…

My diary is in store, since the day I met you…”

Wow...very very touchy. As i read through the last word, i thought i was listening to some song and visualizing it at the same time too. Dont know what drove you to write this, but it is written as if it has happened in real. Too good.....
