Dear Busy Buddy,
Life is such blessing with all it brings down to us. Let those be moments of happiness and comfort or the harsh experiences and struggles, every phase has it’s own amazing taste. And those blessings are just not limited till there, life brings us amazing people to share endless time. Among those beautiful relations is the relationship of friendship. It though has its specific name but if observed closely it houses all relationships of the world.
Friendship is one of the biggest blessings one can acquire and having a friend who shares your passions, feelings, thoughts, beliefs, nature, interests and what not is the best of all.I hope we still share the same bond so, you would have agreed to me on all I said, no? But I believe every relationship which seems so strong is equally breakable too. It is so fragile that even a mere blow of wind can move it.
Strength of a relationship is not defined by the movement a tie can endure but the force it takes to break that knot.
Throughout the years of the bond we created once, I got to learn alot from you and though I never wanted to be dependent on someone but I guess I became used to of leaning on you. For a person who is haunted by the thought of being alone, no decision can be worst than deciding to make a friend the center of the universe. But sadly, I did.
Life was so good and great until their words became a reality. Friendships don’t pass the test of practical life. I was so sure our bond will survive after all we were not just friends but a bit more than that. We had the same feelings, did not we? We stayed true to it, did not we? I know we both tried but you got lost in the sea of busy life.
You embraced the open arms of busy world ahead of you while I kept standing there watching you go. Needle is on 12 on the clock if my impatience is measured. I peek on the biscuits 2 minutes after the tray is put in the oven but I kept looking at the phone for hours just to get your reply. I like sleeping while hugging my pillow but I kept my eyes open just to read a text after 2 hours, “Sorry I fell asleep”. It was hard for me too to take out time but I made myself available just to look at the bare chair telling myself you would have had an urgent work.
I kept acting mature to understand the long list of reasons that kept you busy. It took me long but I realized that you slammed the door of your presence on my face, snatched that friendship of yours from me, drove away your hand from mine and abandoned me to live my worst dream and look my deepest fear into the eye.
I found myself alone and loneliness peeked right into my eyes, tearing through my soul, crawling through my nerves, destroying my neurons and stabbing my heart with each stare. I finally decided that I need to move on like you did. I realized one more bond is broken because of busy schedule of work. I knew it was the time so, I told myself I am happy for the success my friend is getting, the opportunities coming along the path and the works added in the achievements but no one is busy all the time. Priorities define the way tasks are done and people are dealt. So, I moved on looking for the place that belongs to me in this world and searching for the people I can call my new home.
As far my busy pal is concerned, I know he will turn around one day tired of the workload and happiness of successes to celebrate the moment with me. I know in his memory I would still be standing where he left me but I’ll leave this on destiny to whisper to him,
