“She didn’t see it as leaving behind. She saw it as walking forward.”
A simple line is sometimes enough to explain something that even a billion words might not be able to do. We all have had that point in our lives where we leave behind some part of our very routine-ed life, for the part where we being a whole new life within the life we are living already. So this is my new beginning to my old story.
Its been two months exactly since I last saw the people who kept my world spinning. And now, they are all in different parts of the world. We are so far apart, yet the thought of them being right beside me, gives me comfort. Every time I see something around me, my first thoughts are “oh my god! I need to tell this to her! I bet she will laugh her head out!” or “I really wish she were beside me to see this”. And then, at the end of the day, I do call her up and spend an hour telling her about my day, and another one hour asking about hers. We laugh together over the phone as if we were right next to each other. And then, we say our goodbyes and love-you’s and hang up as though the world is perfect for us. In a way it is nice to know that people, no matter how far the distance, are right next to us in our hearts.
It is a bittersweet sliver of time when we sit back, reminiscing our old times together and laugh at ourselves. It always brings a fresh batch of happy tears to my eyes…which slowing drip down from my eyes, knowing that I will never live those beautiful moments again…
Maybe it was a miracle I ended up with a person like her for my friend. And maybe it was meant to be, but either ways….
With friends like her, my every new story will always be old. And every page in the book of my life, she will always be etched….
My best friend.
Love you, Always and forever…
