Words and I met ever since I began speaking, and got to know and understand one another as I began reading and writing. Expressing myself is something I love; and words have stood by my side, to my rescue, just like my shadow. It’s a strange bond we share: at times as a love affair, at times as argument in thoughts and soliloquy, at times silence and at times expressions. Eventually we became best of friends.
It has been years that our bond has grown, evolved and matured to the stage where we are. I am sure it’ll grow, deeper and have broader meanings with time. I’ve been wanting to thank you, for a long time but never got an opportunity. You’ve been inevitably there by my side for the tiniest of feelings, thoughts, emotions I wanted to express: be it telling my beloved how much I love him or talking to my pet or even writing letters to my friends and loved ones and telling them how much they mean to me, you’ve been a friend, by my side unconditionally.
Even at times, when I am at a loss of “words”, you keep running through my thoughts, delve deeper into my mind and heart and bring up a way to communicate them just right. Sheer brilliance!
I often tell my loved ones, how much value they all behold in my life, but somehow I just realized I never told you of this! I have tried my best to communicate my feelings for you, through a few lines. I call them “Between Words & Me”
It’s a strange love affair between the two of us;
Expressions were blessed with life thus. . .
A grim of suppression remained in a jiffy
Today reflects the light and there’s no more iffy
It’s indeed a strange love affair:
Between the words and me.
We find closure in this harmony
Of thought and discourse. . .
For this is where our journeys meet.
Together explore new depths
And scale new heights
And together we write the skies,
With the story of our love affair.
So here’s a toast to our unique and unusual; yet the most unconditional friendship. May our bond grow deeper in meaning.
