"Friends"- A tribute

Eustace Budgell has rightly said "Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another"..

There isn't a person on earth who wouldn't agree with me(or is there??) when I say Friends are almost a necessity to every human being. We all need someone to share our feelings with, without the fear of being laughed at or with the ease of laughing together even in the most not-so-funny situations that we encounter in our day to day lives.. We need Friends because they alone have the power to kick our ass while lending their shoulder to lean on at the same time when we are crying over that schmuck who just dumped us.. We need friends because they have the ability to make us escape from the harsh realities life enfolds every second even if d relief is for a few moments. Life gets boring and frustrating without true friends. This hub is dedicated to my friends who have made my life worth living.

I was standing all alone by the street lost in thoughts,that's when some figures emerged out of the darkness & with them 'happiness' is what they brought. I looked at them with childlike eager eyes & they greeted me with a warm smile. They stood by me in times when I was all alone. They firmly held my hands when I was shaken and they gently took me home. When I was lost in the darkness of life, they came along & like fire they spread their light. When I was all sad and low, they took me into their arms & promised me that I'll never be alone... Life suddenly seemed so pleasant & beautiful because they had told me so. There were times when I was confused and had no idea where to go, they would smile & vanish my problems into thin snow. When I was being carried away by the traps of life, they showed me the difference between truth & lies. When I was hurt by this cruel world, they gave me the confidence that I could even achieve the skies.

They made me smile through tears, helped me face storms without any fears. They are my backbone,my strength, my ego. They are none other than my lovely friends who helped me take the world in a blow. Without them life wouldn't have been this easy & I would like to tell the whole wide world so.. So yes, My friends are my world, they are my fallen stars. With them I can survive even in Mars..

Love you all :)

      Thanks again Prasetio :) Friends are the best gift one can have. As someone has rightly said-

      "A good friend allows you a safe space to share your deepest thoughts and needs without worry of being judged, criticized or made to feel silly for feeling the way you do. Friends cheer each other on, laugh and cry together, and just plain commiserate and listen to each other"

      God bless Ya!
