I will miss you my friend!!

You entered like
a fresh spring breeze
only to linger,
with the aroma
of your sweetness;
leaving an impression
that won't fade
like a passing cloud

In a short span
you've been there
in times of need
and distress,
In moments
happy and sad;

I'll be missing you
my friend

For babysitting,
for packing last minute lunches;
For shopping,
for cooking
without tiring;

Whenever I pass building 11
Whenever I flip through my phone
and find your name;
I know you aren't here,
yet, I can feel you
around me
Today, I bid adieu
with a heavy heart
Hoping we meet again
sooner or later
I repeat
Time and again
I will miss you my friend!!

    To part and to meet
    Is the hope of life.

    1. You said it so well, Shilpa. We meet and we part. But, meeting like minded people and with who we gel well is so rare..and she is one such sweet girl. I surely will miss her. :(

    1. You are right, KP sir. only few leave a mark...the time we stayed together doesn't matter. I know people for years now and never felt closeness at heart with them. Thank you!

    1. Yes, Usha ji. I will meet her again on my next India trip. But it may take a while. However, it is not the same as living in the same city and growing with each other. Guess, who I could be in the pic?

    1. Oh Amit, how I wish your word comes true. I can meet her for sure in my India trip. But again, living in the same city and near to each other is a far away dream :) And you know my luck in meeting old buddies :)
