Sometimes, when two people meet, their souls recognize each other instantly

I am not talking about romantic love

This is not a fairy tale

Friendships can last a lifetime

Even if the other person lives half a world away

From two cultures, so different from each other

Two life experiences influenced by different things

We met on a hike

The sun was shining

She was with all her friends

I knew no one there

She was friendly, she was warm

And I determined to be brave

Years have passed

We have fought, we have cried, we have spent years apart

But we are still together

In spirit, in heart

When two people love and respect each other, distance means nothing

We get each other, despite our differences

And we both know our goodbyes are never forever

سلام آپ کے ساتھ ہو میرے دوست(Peace be with you my friend)
میں ہمیشہ تمہارے ساتھ ہوں (I am with you always)

  1. I love “When two people love and respect each other, distance means nothing” reflects my beliefs. I have a friend I haven’t seen in over 30 years. When we talk it’s like we saw each other yesterday. Experiences have been widely different, but we seems to “get” each other more and more.

    1. I am glad you could relate! I have many very close friends who live far away and I only see every couple years, if we are lucky, and I still treasure them dearly. This particular friend, Taahira, has been very supportive of my writing so I chose her to be the subject!
