Do you remember our days together! So easy, fun loving and full of life. We talked about each and everything and all the aspects of our life. Shared so many happy as well as sad moments in those three years. We were “diplo cocci” with a capsule. Always together. And then suddenly I wanted out…no, no, not out of your life, but out of the same drudgery of government job. We planned not to talk anout my plans to anybody till everything in the new setup is finalized, we talked in hushed tones..people in the department knew that something was cooking but we never devulged what we were talking about! And that day came finally, when I had to leave. I saw thosed tears n your eyes, you were trying to be brave just like me. You said all the right stuff of encouragement. And I left, with new dream of life at a new place. Raring to learn the new stuff, new culture, to meet new people! I didn’t get time to miss you so much as you did. Not because I didn’t care, but because I never had so much time.
Today, I know how you must have felt. My best friend is leaving for the new job, for better prospects, better future, raring to take up the new challenges and I am also trying to be brave with all the words of encouragement..just like you had done!
Today, I miss you more than I did when I left you 9 months ago!
Thank you so much for being my friend and for being there when I need you the most!
Thank you friend!
