I Chose You

on

To the long distance friend,

Why do I still miss you when you are on the other end of the planet? Why do I still keep you in my thoughts every night? I still ask myself- why did we choose each other in a crowd of thousands like us?

Because you got my sarcasm and I laughed at your silly jokes. Because you didn’t drink coffee without me and I missed college every time you were sick. Because you pulled me back from jumping into fights and I held your hand when you cried.


I remember our sleepovers where we confessed our shared love for Will Smith. I remember our secret library meetings to exchange homework. I remember our late night calls that went on till the alarm rang at 5a.m.


I will miss you even if you rocket off to Mars. I’ll still keep you in my thoughts at night while you’ll remember me in your morning prayers. I’ll answer a million times over- We chose each other in a crowd of thousands because we never saw anyone else!

-The friend who will always be around

        😊 there are stories behind every name! My name is after an Indian dancer that my mom liked! Sadly I didn’t develop dancing skills like she hoped for.

      I have read a bit about the particle accelerator, though not much. Have you read Dan Brown’s Origin? It is fiction but is based on a lot of research!
