If only  you would  have  known 

You could have understand how much I needed my bestfriend 

Cities changed and like the two starsEnveloped by the  beautiful night sky which can see each others light  but  must drift apart

I danced with joy ,for all your achievments.I always clapped,

but then  why your  fists clenched When I told you mine

I stayed awake to listen to your dreams,your fears

I saw you  grieving at all those heartaches and  all those tears 

Then where were you ,when I had to share mine 

I picked up that 3 am calls just to help you sleep 

 I was the shoulders when you had to weep

But for me,my pillow was there for my  muffled sobs

I know you were not at fault 

I just had to understand 

Distance was long  

And our friendship was stronger 

 But you had a life and couldnt manage all the things together.

I assusmed that you had a long day at work ,

I called,and received your text “talk to you later”

I kept waiting for the mend up call

I was planning how to scold 

I had a list of long missed tales 

I knew you were tired but will listen 

I missed our laughs and random rants ,all those inside jokes we used to crack

But that night passed and so the  weeks and after months you still were busy

I tried and tried to cover up the increasing gap but failed .

It seemed that I was the only one who tried

I know you have got a life and bunch of new friends. 

But dont forget my dear 

I am still here ,when you would look back 

Life happens ,I understand 

but  for me ,you will always  be my bestfriend​

  1. Sadly, I could relate to every single line of this post. it just felt like someone else narrated my story more beautifully than I possibly could.

  3. Yeah, I would have to say my best friend is better at keeping in touch than I am. I would be on the receiving end of this poem, unfortunately. It wasn’t that I was not proud of her accomplishments: graduating high school and having three children. It was just that I went to college and graduated instead of having children. We are still the best of friends, but our lives have taken different paths. And she handles her stress A LOT better than I handle mine. She also can articulate her feelings and emotions better than I can. I am strictly the “achiever” and “bookworm” type. She is the more “family-oriented” one.

  4. In every relation ship one has to drift apart one day. We born alone, Die alone.

    Beautiful expressions of emotions indeed.

    Loved the way you played with words. I am touched.

    You’re are creative writer, keep sharing.

    Good morning.


  5. it happens. with growing responsibilities and changing priorities in life . but still we can all make effort to stay in touch with our close ones . even just a whatsapp wish during festival could keep us connected .
    but yes if they drift away due to fights and misunderstanding , its difficult to reconnect with them as either of us would turn a lil cold and emotionless
