I still remember the way it started,
One day when my eyes caught your profile
As though, I could see through your soul,
Without even knowing you at all.
I still remember the way it felt,
When I went up this beautiful ladder.
At every step that I took,
I etched a new chapter into this friendship book.
I still remember how we would go on chatting,
With the Saturday night melting into Sunday morning
Our talks punctuated by your pizza breaks,
With me telling you that it’s not good for your sake.
I still remember your promises full of innocence,
Crammed with those beautiful words of endearments.
'Barbie doll' had become my favorite pet,
Alas! It’s something I still can’t forget.
I still remember the way I felt,
When you had asked me my phone number digits.
I still remember your late night texts,
I still remember your infantile requests.
I still remember our first meeting,
I still remember those message bottles.
The message which said ,this gift is the best,
Is still etched deep inside my heart.
I still wake up to the euphony of,
the pink clock you gifted
The friendship band presented by thee
Still rests on my wrist.
Your puerile voice still dawdles in my ears
Your profound songs I still love to hear
I still remember your tender glances
I often relive the meetings we exchanged.
You came and went like that wisp of air,
But the scent of your friendship continues to linger ,
in the midnight air , gushing past my hairs.
Believe it or not , you’ll forever be in my prayers.
I miss you..
