Today i was reviewing my list of friends. In my mind I traveled down the memory lane and I was searching for one single friend whom I would call tonight at 12 to wish. The first on my list.
But as i went through names, instances, memories, tears, smiles, school, college, work, PG, hostel, roommates, play time friends, I found only one name coming up again and again. And it is ‘mom’ …some may find this old fashioned, but it’s true in my case.
The one person who understands me…tolerates me…hangs out with me…talks to me….shares my joys… wipes my tears…and still…even when i forget…is always standing beside me…sometimes invisible…who has never forgotten to call me one single day in the 15 years I left home.
So yes, it’s Mom, the best friend forever
