Tell me, What now?

You mean the world to me
You know that.
It's my fault this time
I admit;
You have had your share
As well.
But now
That we are on about mine,
Tell me
Where do I stand?
Because right now
I feel like
You are testing me,
And I'm not in the mood for games!
Or worse
If this is how our future is
Then I think
I'd rather back away,
'Cause I hate
To pretend that we are fine
When you clearly aren't.

Darling Bestie

People walk around calling everyone their best friend that the term doesn’t have any real meaning anymore. Mere acquaintances are lavished with hugs and kisses upon a second or at most third meeting. Birthday cards get passed around offices so everybody can scribble a snippet of sentimentality for a colleague they barely met. Everyone just loves everyone. As a result when you tell somebody you love them today, it isn’t much heard. I love you Thiyumi, you are my best friend. I couldn’t imagine going through life without you as my best friend.

The word best friend is used so casually these days that it does not do justice to describe what you are to me.

You make me laugh when I feel like crying, calm me down when I feel scared and make me feel foolish whenever I lose my temper.

You are my motivation to exercise and my partner to eat junk with.

You are my conscience when I don’t have one, encouragement when I need some and comfort whenever the skies are grey.

You are the constant reminder that I’m getting too fat, that my life is chilled and that having each other is more than enough to be happy.

You are the call after work to see how my day went, the excited texting when my crush send a message and the depressing call at 2.00 a.m. because I just broke up.

You are my coffee date, dinner date, Panino, Jagro or sushi date and even let’s eat a burger in the middle of the night under the stars date.

You are my helping hand when I need one, my plus one when I don’t have one and my head when I follow my heart too much.

You are my sister; annoying at times but can’t imagine life without you and most definitely part of the family.

You are my mother; skeptical of who I hangout with, what food I eat or how much alcohol I consume.

You are my therapist; I tell you all my secrets and you advice without judging me.

You are my partner in crime; be it writing love letters to my brother or giving sleeping pills to a teacher.

You are my teacher, mentor and role model. You taught me that happiness is actually a choice, if there is a will there is a way and that no matter how many times you fall down, you can always get back up.

You are my diary; I bitch about studies, work, family, friends, boy friends, random strangers and even about each other just to make myself feel better.

You are my girl friend; and what’s yours is most definitely mine; be it clothes, shoes, nail polish, jewelry, New Year resolutions or even birthdays! 

You are most certainly my best friend. You are the one who I dragged on my first date because I was too scared to go alone, the one who wore saari on my 21st because I didn’t want to be the only one and the one who put my heart back together after it got broken.

You do to me what God’s suppose to do; show me that life is worth living!

Thank you for everything babe!
I love you more than I like to show. 

Here’s to hoping that WE have an amazing Birthday!!!
