Dear Best Friend,
You entered my life at a time when there was more loneliness and cringe-worthy depression quotes way too relatable gheroing in on me.
You never asked what was wrong, and you never said what could be right. We both just knew, and we knew it was perfect that way. I don’t
talk much, and you know that. But I cannot say this enough: you’re my light.
It breaks me from inside when you say you feel alone, like there’s no one. I hate it when you say you are not feeling better than you were
yesterday. I have no answer to any of your questions; because I spend my time thinking only about them, just never say it out loud. You
don’t know, but I cry every time you say that the only person you loved didn’t hold your hand back, or left it when you needed it the
Our words meet each other when we don’t, and I have spent more than a few nights trying to trace out a solid person out of your words and
your blurred pictures. You have brothers, and sisters, and friends, who have been with you during the darkest nights. You have a brother who listens to all your gibberish and then gets upset. You have a sister you know inside out and it has been years since you met her.
You have a mentor who says he has faith in you.
You have two countries to call home, and you have more than a few people you adore and text
at any random time of the day.
A time zone and seven thousand kilometres apart, maybe I am not there to respond to all your texts or read all your stories; but I know that every time you call, there are going to be a billion tales I will go to sleep with. There is a different sky and a different
colour of the streets you and I see. There are five hundred people and six thousand things which set you and me so apart maybe we were not
meant to meet.
I am grateful I was on the internet the same time as you. I am grateful you mistook me for what I wasn’t, for the first time. I am grateful I got someone as wonderful and beautiful as you to be there to raise a toast when I finally find my ‘someone’. I am grateful that you exist. And I love you.
Love multiplied ten times with infinity,
