"Friendship" - a special feeling shared by masses... a feeling stretching beyond silly definitions, asymmetric complexities, arresting limitations, physical classifications, geographical distances, economical classes and religious rivalries...

Sound of word "Friend" comes across with a special warmth as in a lovesome hug, it invokes a nostalgic harmony in my mind, along with lots of pleasant memories (Hum rahe yaa na rahe kal playing in background.... ) ;)

I consider myself blessed to possess so many true friends... You make me fearless of getting into any stinking shit for I know you are there to pull me out it, the way I would pull you out of one... For someone like me who has been staying away from home since the age of 17, friends have not an an inch lesser than my family... I literally eat, drink, and sleep with my friends (its 8 years, and counting)... Once inside my friendship web, I've hardly let anyone out... Orkut, Facebook and Twitter deserves due credit for helping me stay in touch with my darling friends...

This day, 2nd August 2009 is celebrated as "World Friendship Day"... Many argue that friends do not need a day to express their love to each others, may be we dont... but still I shall grab this opportunity to thank all those special people who are integral part my life...

"Thank you my friend for being meaningful in so many ways"

Thank you my friend for walking into my life, and for letting me be a part of your life...
Thank you for sharing all my happiness, and all my sorrows...
Thank you for believing in me when I found it difficult to believe in myself...
Thank you my friend, for being bliss in my life...

Your comforting presence make my grieves short lived,
If not for you, my jubilations would not be lasting as long as it do...
Your kind words lighten my heart, and guide me right during tough times...
From you I always hear what I need to hear instead of what I want to hear...

Thank you my friend, for trusting me with your thoughts, disappointments and dreams...
Thank you for all the special memories with me...
Thank you my friend for putting so much of thought, care and imagination into our friendship...
Thank you for knowing you can depend on me always...

Thank you my friend for being meaningful in so many ways...


Some of you walked into my life as early as I let out my first cry... some joined a little late... I just wish you could 've made that entry into my life earlier, and pray that you stay here for eternity...



Love always...
Shamz...

    Yes, friends do not need friendship day to express their care and love for their friends but I still love to celebrate this day because it gives me a chance to collect happy memories that would last for a long time. Memories I can dwell in whenever I am sad...

    :) i dont know if i understand the meaning of friendship. But i do understand the feeling.

    People like you are not friends that are made. You are amongst those friends who Happen to people.

    Wish you all the goodness and kindness and all that it takes for you to be you. For me nothing else matters than the happeness of people around me. People like you, whom i donot connect, havent met, but share a fondness with.

    Thank you darling.
