It is often said that friends are the extended family that care for us and support us…they are our support system who guide us help us and if need be they even scold us.
At times we wonder,
On meeting certain strangers,
That there is a certain invisible bond,
The existence of which is mysteriously strange but at the same time strong.
We do not know each other, we have never met,
After all we are completely strangers, but yet,
That first interaction and the pleasing formal demeanour,
Is soon replaced by friendly fights and constantly speaking to each other.
There are times when we feel extremely lonely,
In such moments their company gives us a sense of relief and safety,
They feel like our extended family.
Staying up late at night, catching up with each other,
Sharing the days events, laughing at things that do not matter.
At times we argue, we ignore each other,
But at the end of the day we end up at each other’s door.
We laugh, we cry, we share our feelings,
And at times make fun of the meaningless gossips.
We are not bonded by blood,
But this bond is so strong that little misunderstandings can not break it up.
One knows deep inside,
That no matter how much we fight,
We always wish for the best for each other in our hearts and mind.
We cannot see each other in pain,
And anything that hurts one,
The other ensures that it never does so again.
Such friends are hard to come by,
But when they do, do not let them pass you by.
They are the ones who understand you best,
Especially at times when you do not expect it from the rest,
Cause after all we are the best of friends.
