sitting in the park bench in the midst of a lush green field away from the prying eyes of everyone we sit down, hands clasped
strangers we were on the day we saw each other you going about your work me, stumbling into the minefield like a lost child
scared and confused i stood rooted to my place like a human in a field of dinosaurs i was wondering when the chase would begin to hunt me down and to drive me away
until you grabbed me by the hand and took me away from a deadly minefield to a garden of flowers
until that moment we were just strangers in the same train
time flew fast we changed places we changed ourselves we changed for good
once a week in this little bench we sit down we talk we relive our first meeting we relive our lives week after week
rain or sun never bothered us every week this little park bench was our paradise away from the crazy world we live in
couple of hours every week we come here sit down and watch the birds and the bees fly by watch the kids play in the grass watch the outside world zoom infront of us
yet just like the first day we sit here hands clasped silently watching the world without saying a word
silently wishing the world to stop silently hoping time moves backward to the first day we met to the day when 2 strangers became friends
(silently hoping we stay in this paradise forever)
note: Not everyone becomes your “friend” and not everyone can be your “friend“. Friends are of 2 types, in my opinion. 1. Short term:- They are like your guests. They come and go. Once their short term goal is fulfilled, they just pack up and go.
2. Long Term:- People who fall under this category are the ones who stay with you for a long time. You or they will not be able to explain why they are around you but when you two meet/talk you feel happy – inside. These are those “special” people with whom you can share anything and everything. Likewise they would feel “at ease” to share the same with you. Once you see them, you would feel “relieved”. You put their “happiness” before yours. Yet at the same time you will never acknowledge that 🙂
There is an old saying – A Friend is a lover, literally. People in the second category are prime example of this. They know you inside out and you share your life with them as you would do with your partner.
Btw, sometimes when it comes to things like this, words are the worst way to express it. What you type out can be mis-interpreted as well or worse, you just would not get the words to express it 🙂
