One by one, I am counting the days,
Because once in forever, the love songs are making sense.
Once in forever, someone has meant the world to me,
You make me want to flee, the way you just let me be.
Longing for the day, I’ll get to see your face,
Touch it oh-so-gently, to kiss and leave my taste.
To sing you lullabies, as you fall asleep,
To finally have a heart, that’s forever mine to keep.
To just hold your hand, and have to say nothing,
To simply look into your eyes, and feel myself blushing.
To just lay beneath the stars, and talk for hours,
Talk about all the beautiful things, about butterflies and wildflowers.
So one by one, I’ll count the days,
Until I finally get to see your face.
Until the day I can hold and soak you in,
The moment my tears won’t stop flowing.
Tell me, do you feel the same?
Are you counting minutes too?
Tell me, are you longing to see me just as much?
As much as I long to see you?
It is extremely rare to find friends in life who you can be extremely transparent with, who you can act absolutely crazy with, talk absolute crap, dance weirdly in front of and not worry even for a second of being judged. That is what these two mean to me. And all those who know Namita and Abhishek, know that they come in a package, ek pe ek muft. So, I could obviously not write two different posts for them. (Chances are, they wouldn’t even have taken the pains to read both. 😀 )
It has only been a year since I know you two. Do you guys remember the days when we referred to each other as “aap”? The only first two months we ever respected each other, and thankfully so. We slowly revealed our awesomeness after that, and it was nothing short of finding my soulmates. I mean who even thinks of going to a place like Goa in a group of three, and coming back having had the best time of their lives. (Quite a recreation of Dil Chahta Hai.)
The best part is that we don’t feel the need to have anyone else with us when we are together. And we don’t even have to be doing anything most of the time, just lazying around in the bed saying absolutely nothing, watching crappy movies, playing cards or simply spending hours talking on the terrace is all we need. And the way we never bother taking two bikes, no matter how far the distance, the way we scooch and slide and blame the other’s ass being fatter than ourselves, and finally manage to fit on the poor little thing.
All that apart, now that I have you guys, I know that there is never going to be a day in my life where I am going to feel like I do not have someone to talk to, or that I don’t have somewhere to go. I know you are going to gloat in this forever, but I am still going to go ahead and say that I feel extreeemeely lucky to have you idiots in my life, ‘coz not everyone has the kind of friends who come rushing only because the other had a bad dream and woke up crying.
Cheers to us!
Lots of Love,
I did not write for so long because I just do not understand how I will ever be able to sum it all up in words … the happiness I feel when I wake up every morning, knowing there is someone thousands of miles away, whom I have not seen nor touched, who has not met me either but loves me more than anyone ever has … the calmness I feel when I know I am the luckiest person in the world … the tranquility that washes over me when I go to bed every night, knowing there is someone who loves me just as much as I love him, knowing that now that I have you, I am complete.
I had gone from being emotional to sad to pissed to absolutely unreasonable.
“I am sorry I have been acting so weird lately, you didn’t deserve any of that”, I said apologetically.
“It is okay, honey. These are all flavours of you. And I enjoy all of them”, he replied instantly.
I fell in love all over again.
