“Meet my friend”. That’s a typical gesture, a common refrain… ringing out all over the world. As I would see it, it’s the way they say it, lies the explanation.

So how does a person explain a friend…………!

“Meet my friend” — the power behind it says it all.

These words are spoken across the globe a thousand times by every individual. Always there is a special extra gesture for a special friend and always a different one for general daily ones.

As one grows old, the list of special friends also changes. Some come, some go and a very few stay.

Maintaining a good friendship is like maintaining an individual. Everyone has a different personality… likes and dislikes. One’s habits are always different from one another.

Some of the funny jokes might be not so funny to the other. Well, that is it. It doesn’t matter if they are different as long as they are friends you love them all along.

Friends are not coterie, who are always seen around. They are like pure fresh air, always around even if not seen. A true friend is like a shadow, always behind you. Always following without you noticing.

A friend will be always next to you, in every terrain … and without complaining. A friend’s heart will be always pure and true. Friends’ love is like a spring of fresh water in the mountains… and for you, your friend will cross all borders .

And most importantly, a friend will always love you … because … you are … you.

The Gappuccino Adds: Friendship was a topic of moral philosophy which was greatly discussed by Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics. This is however less discussed in the modern era. Thank you Ashish for your initiative. True, a person who lacks things such as good family and friends might find it difficult to be happy.

  1. …like… one soul in several bodies.

    …also, I remember reading sometime back — “It’s believed that everlasting friends go long periods of time without speaking to each other but never question their friendship. These friends pick up phones like they just spoke yesterday, regardless of how long it has been or how far away they live, and they don’t hold grudges. They understand that life goes on but you will ALWAYS love them.”
