You have been there whenever i needed you, you wiped off all my tears and brought a smile on my face but what happened to you someday that even after being so near to me, we don't talk to each other. I always felt proud to hold your hand, but today for some reason i can't. I can't even tell you how much i miss you , may be i don't have the guts or may be i am a fool egoistic who is waiting for you to start.
Can you be with me again ? Can i share those same jokes, the laughter , those gossips with you again ? Why can't we all try to be friends again rather than remembering those silly fights and spoiling our time. Different thinking, misunderstandings, jealousy, competition and bla bla bla. In all these things we might achieve great heights, but keep fighting and keep loosing friends, keep missing the wonderful time we can have with them.
As time passes, i make new friends and i feel happy about but the happiness doesn't stay long cause at the back of mind i also know i am loosing friends. Some have left me and i am not sure whether i will meet them ever again. I don't know whether i will see the same smile, play the same pranks on them again?? I don't even know that someday if i ever meet them , will i actually feel the same comfort again ?. As time passes and as distance increases, relationships weaken leaving some evergreen memories which we can't forget. After all friendship is the most wonderful relationship but at times it doesn't get the value it deserves.
I have passed through phases and i suppose everyone passes through a phase where we loose friends. The reasons can be very weird at times but somehow we convince our heart that it was enough to leave someone all alone. How sad!! Forgiving mistakes is something we never learnt. From somewhere we pick up a small reason and say good bye to a good friend , a friend who has given company in our toughest times, a friend who supported you even when you lacked support from your family. Once the friendship is broken most of us never try to be the same friends. The simplest question that i wish to ask you is What do you actually want ?
1. A Good time with a friend or a 2. time spent alone trying to convince yourself that it was not your mistake.
There were days when just a single friend was everything for you, an unconditional support, your power through which you felt most powerful and never hesitated to fight any battle, finally a shoulder which was just meant just for you. After being together for so long and sharing so many things, why do friends actually separate and their relationship breaks even after they still coming across each other ? Why can't they compromise and live the same way, they enjoyed ? Life has been funny, you win some and you loose some. Same holds true for friends. Nobody wants to loose but everybody has but even then nobody wants to compromise!
Few months back, i use to enjoy the weekdays more than weekends cause it was these days when i met some close friends. Time has changed and so have many things and i eagerly wait for weekends when i can attend my music lessons. On weekends (besides loving my music lessons) i see a bunch of new friends who receive me with a smile and then come those weekdays when i come across a group of people who made me feel so proud someday that even the thought of leaving them use to make me feel sad but today things have changed, they have changed, their priorities have changed. Well Priorities should change with time but that doesn't mean that the old priorities should be treated harshly, rudely.But you know i have never given up so easily (i actually don't remember when did i give up last time), and i think nobody should give up when it comes to winning friends.
Today you might remember a friend as someone who was with you for years but he can't be with you now cause some silly thing went wrong between you and you both decided to separate your paths and the time when you must be having those funny moments, you end up being alone. You don't have someone to listen to you, the person who was everything for you, today means nothing to you. Everybody makes mistakes but nobody wants to forgive. With time i have learnt that loosing a friend doesn't require any efforts, making a friend is difficult but remaking a friend is most difficult. It demands forgiveness, a big heart to accept mistakes, it demands you to forget all your complexities your ego and hug someone, someone who never meant to hurt you who is waiting for you to hold his hand again and take him to a journey of life time, take him again to the journey of Friendship.
This Diwali, i have this small gift for you which will be the gift you will treasure for a long time,i have a message which might bring back those lost days, bring back those smiles which you once had. Wake up, its time to say sorry or its time to forgive, its time to remake friends, its time to run to that special friend who might be around you but even then you miss him. Its time to ask that special person whom you miss, Will you be my Friend Again ? I hope for most of you the answer will be YES. Happy Diwali Everyone!!
