Someone once told me, “There is no need for photographs when there are things such as memories.” That was four years ago. Then I was too young to understand what that meant, but today I learnt the true meaning of that statement.
One has many friends, but one has only a few best friends. How do you know the difference? Its really simple actually. Your best friends are the ones that shine the brightest when the tunnel seems so dark and hopeless.
They may not always be there for you, but they miracluously appear when things are at its worst, like they come inbuilt with an emergency sensors. And whether its through words or silence, laughter or smiles, life seems better.
Somedays, I just wish to sit in silence. Take a backseat and watch them live their lives. Hear what they have to say, to themselves and to others and to me. And sometimes silent movies say much more than those that aren’t so.
Friendship is like a love affair. You need trust to build it on. Faith that your friend will do what they think is best for you. Hope for the future. And most importantly love and respect for that person.
Photographs bring back nostalgic pasts, memories forgotten. But when you are surrounded with people you love wholeheartedly and who love you back equally, those memories stay steadfast in your mind, everlasting.
Memories of words, memories of time, memories of laughter, memories of gratitude, memories of love, memories of thoughtfulness, memories of taunts, memories of tears, memories of greatness and memories of weakness.
Friendship is beautiful. A beautiful part of life. There are no amounts of photographs that can capture an essence of a friendship, but there are no words to describe the amounts of memories that build one.
It goes through its rough patches and it has its golden moments. It provokes greatness, teachs important life lessons, and opens ones eyes to the real world. It is forever, even past life.
