A Change?

For eight years, we have laughed at each other, with each other and amongst each other.
For eight years, we have lied to each other and lied for each other.
For eight years, we have lived for each other and we have lived each other.
For eight years, we have been each others’ reasons for presence at schools.
For eight years, we eight friends have been a team.
Today, after eight years, we are at different places, even miles away from each other (only geographically, of course)
But there are some things that keep us from missing each other. And that’s probably our own ‘new’ friends.
Never had I thought that it would take just a few minutes to make new friends at college.
Never had I thought that it would take just a few hours to know each other.
Never had I thought that it would take just a week to call my ‘new’ friends my close friends.
Never had I thought that strange acquaintances would make a team and this soon.
But, one thing that I had known forever is that what creates a difference between mere existence and life is called friendship.
And perhaps, everyone knows this, inside. Perhaps, this is why we could recreate lives so soon.
My friends at college (new no more) have helped me relive my days at school.
They have helped me realize once again the magic that gossips hold.
They have helped me feel once again the thrill of bunking classes.
They have helped me rediscover myself, and all in a period of two weeks!

So, has college life brought in a real change in my life? Not quite.

I am really grateful to my friends, old and relatively new, for persistently helping me equate life with friendship and friendship with bliss!
Thank You, friends.

Your post reminded me of our post on friends and how true is the notion of "friends forever" Like you said, friends move on but new ones take their place. As long as you have friends, you continue to cherish both the old and new.

Sanjay Jha,namaste.Thank You.

Shama,true.But new friends can hardly replace the old ones.It's just that the new ones help you realize the essence of friendship that had been definitely fonder when you were with your old friends.
Anyways, I had read your post 'friends forever' and had loved it too.Thank You.
