treasured moments are those which i spend with my friends. they alone know me better than i do and sometimes i feel even my family does. it is probably i guess true in most cases for them too… because they encounter the same obstacles as i do in my life and they can understand the difficulty faced by me in overcoming those obstacles.

i am a leo, and am true to the characteristics that describe those born under the sign of the mighty lion. i am a fierce friend to all who know me and i look to maintain that friendship throughout but in some cases, i overdo that effort too. i look to my friends to tell me this but more often than not, they don’t. but i do realize that before i do too much trouble to them and i stop. i hate it when friends don’t speak to me. i find their silence more troubling than if they choose to say hateful words to me. for their anger if there will die down quicker than it came, deep in my heart i know that to be true.

i always said that a friend is like a candle always lit. because friendship is a flame that resides in the heart, that flame can be doused only when my heartbeat stops. friendship is like the calm breeze that soothes me when i am troubled. i can never be someone who I am not when i am with a friend. it makes me feel wonderful when a friend asks me for help. not because he is troubled, but because he felt that i can help him overcome his troubles.

oh how i am thankful to God that he has given me many such candles to guide me when i am in the darkness. And to support me through my troubles and cheer me up when i am sad. i believe in myself when i know i have at least one small drop of a friend’s love inside of me.

to all friends… and the never ending relation called friendship…

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
