Thank you

End of any story doesn’t mean the story doesn’t continue. The characters and their stories have no ends. They just get to become the last word on the last page of a book or last scene of a movie. The narrator just stops narrating. Might be the story further isn’t that meaningful, I suppose.

Same has happened to me when my words and I had divorced each other. We together had a great journey and beautiful story of ours. It was among the best moments of my life.

I am not here back again to recall past or to begin a new story of us. I am here because whatever however it ended, yet it was special. Words don’t connect with me now but for once they felt great to be mine.

And if it wasn’t you dear, I wouldn’t have landed up here to create this platform with my words. I wouldn’t had have this story, or given shape to my expression into something called meaningful words.

You know right I am talking about you. Back in time, Rupinder my friend you were the one to push me for starting my own blog after so many failed attempts of mine. I remember how happy I was to blog my first post.

Well, it’s your birthday tomorrow and this year I wanted to give you a piece of surprise and now don’t be surprised that I remember the date. You know the reason- Now being your tiny financial advisor I can at least remember this much. Haha!

After so much of thinking what to really gift you, I thought few expressive words could be the best to send my wishes and make your day nicer. I do know, you like simple things and nothing else could have been great as this gift for you.

I stopped blogging, but I owe you for this place. Or might be we (my words too) both owe you.

Although I am the one talkative still all these years you have been the one to express more. I am not so great at words like you. But here’s a try.

I really don’t know what much to say but yes big thanks for being the friend you are, always.

I realise have not been so good with you, many times. Been rude, secretive, ignorant, hiding things, selfish, dishonest, careless and so much else. But surprisingly you still amaze me by still considering me worth a friend.

I admit I am bad or I should say I don’t like showing the good side.  Honestly, I can go against any bad for the people in my life. But I don’t easily let everyone to hold on me to be there for me probably because that takes a lot of strength to allow someone to take care of you. I am weak when it comes to emotional bonding. And also, I know it’s painful to be that helping or protecting guard. I can’t just go on and be that pain to everyone. It‘s hard to break that wall simply. Probably I can’t help being like that.

I assume my loved ones will understand my not-said-words. Because words they play funny. They can clear misunderstandings but they can even create big ones. And I am certainly bad when it comes to words.

You are one among those with whom I have not been the best. But yes just know when I say I count you on for forever, I mean it. I don’t believe in namesake friendship. I believe in being a friend even if I am pretend to be a mean person. It’s silly but that’s me.

More of it, it takes a lot to express all this now but today it is your day and it has to be perfect. I don’t want to spoil it.

Thanks for bearing me and of course for remembering every details. Yes I don’t remember dates. But I do remember our bond of friendship and how it has grown up with passing years as we moved on to different stages from your college life to home to workplace.

Yeah I am much more stupid than you think I am. So with this stupid note of mine, just want to say- you are much stronger than you think.

A very Happiest Birthday!
