I wrote this one very long ago, but forgot to publish it. So, here it is...
My last morning of the brief stay at my alumni meet, I went on a bike ride. A promise that was long overdue. A promise made by one of my bestest (although that word doesn't exist) buddies. A friend I can believe with my eyes closed. A friend I can trust my life with. We might not discuss our deepest secrets or our personal details. But he's a friend I can sit and sing my heart out with. Someone I fight with equally as much as I laugh with. And we laugh even when we madly dance to "Our Song" - I'm sexy and I know it.
The drive was heavenly. It took me out of the world for those 10 minutes. While I was sitting behind him with my head rested on his shoulder, I wanted to forget everything else and just enjoy it. Yet I was thinking a lot. I was there in the moment, yet many a things crept in my mind. It took me to a world where I could talk to myself. Where I could drown in my thoughts and he would not disturb, yet pull me back to reality.
I can't thank him enough for that beautiful ride, which opened the deep secrets from inside my own heart. I can't thank him enough for being there, without even realizing it..
What I regret is not being able to record or capture that moment or not knowing when I will get that chance again.
To find solutions, quiet and peace. To find myself..
But then, some moments are meant to be etched in your mind. And this was definitely one of them...
