“Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.”
I don’t know where to start and where to end and what to say and what not . If I have to be really frank I love everything about you, because you are the kind of person ,no one else has been nor will anyone ever be . I always consider myself lucky to have a person like you in my life . In these times when everyone is busy calling their friends mean , selfish and what not I find myself really lucky to define you slefless, loving, heartfelt, truthful, wonderful, good listener and what not . The world has become a place where people don’t even care for themselves and let things go with a flow but I am seriously lucky to have a person who cares for me not just with words but with emotional connect. I still remember the first time we met. Since the time I have met you I believe in “Unplanned moments are the best ” . I never had thought that a person who I came across on Instagram will become such a person in my life without whom I can’t think about life. Be it my happy moments or sad it’s you who’s name comes to mind to share my sad or happy moments. I seriously will never be able to describe you what you acutally are because the way you play a role in my life ,have no words to discibe or explain. Whatever people say about you or how they discribe you ,for me you are the best the way you are and you are the finset person the way you are . Whosoever tries to thinks to change you will make world loose one of the best and finest person. I seriously can’t stop being lucky to have a person like you. To be very honest finding words to discribe a Best friend is very difficult and when it’s a person like you it’s even more difficult. To discibe a best friend is one of the most challenging thing a person can do . A person can thank and discribe anyone but a best friend can never be thanked or discribed . Words like amicable, eternal, lasting, mutual, lifelong, sincere , true , wonderful, affectionate, believable, cheerful, discerning, faithful, generous, good listener, honest , sympathetic, trustworthy, warm hearted, winning and confident can’t even be the introduction of what your are to me and the role you play in my life. The way you pay humble ear to my talks be those sensible or nonsensical is something that I always feel lucky about. All my worries and tensions go away when I share them with you , a call with you looks like a therapy that a no therapist can. All the calls I have made to you have always been like a therapy for me , I need nothing to get rid of my anxiety or anything just a call to you is enough. The trust in you makes me feel even relaxed when I talk to you because I know whatever I say will always remain between you and me. I know I most of the times or I must say always speak such things that can get any person irritated but way you react is something I feel lucky about. Whenever I come across any problem you are the first person who comes to my mind. People always have comments to make about having Blind trust but when it comes to you these theories fail and you have always shown and proven that me putting blind trust in you is something that I should be happy about. My friendship with you has seen many ups and downs but you have maintained all those ups and downs in such a way that our friendship is still in existence. I say it with no shame that my childish behaviour would have had ended the friendship so early but the way you handle every situation is really what I must appreciate and must be thankful to you for . Your way of not criticizing and complaining but giving me honset opinions everytime I come to you makes me feel very special about our friendship. Having a friend who handles your issues and gives you honest opinions is one of the blessings a person should be thankful about and I am really thankful and blessed to have you. This has to be put on record that wherever I ask you to meet you always have that charm and smile that always makes me refreshing after meeting you.
“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
I don’t fear you making new friends because I know the connection we have will never have any bar or any such thing that will make it weak because it’s much strong to stand against any such force . Where I trust you with sharing things that I share with none you also have the same trust in me . The way you come to me for advises gives me a sense that I have same Importance in your life that you have in my life and that you trust me equally as I trust you. The both sided efforts to keep friendship enacted and is making it stronger than before. Our friendship getting stronger day by day is making me feel relaxed because I know who to count on when I feel that nothing is going right. This friendship is like a magic stick that solves every single problem like anything. Every time I think of our friendship it makes me smile thinking how lucky I am for having you as a best friend. I seriously don’t know will I every pay back for what you are in my life. Your persence in my life makes me relaxed and tension free. Hanaan I don’t know or I can’t say for how long will this friendship last but I can promise you if ever the friendship ends, it will only be the happy moments that you will remember and yes I am sure that I and even you will have other best friends after our friendship ever ends but the bound won’t ever be same. As , I am writing this note for you on your birthday I pray that we get to celebrate as many as birthdays we can and all the birthdays we celebrate I hope our bound get stronger with your each passing birthdays. I will end saying that this has been the toughest piece I have written till now because this is about my best friends Abdul Hanaan khan and defining him is one of the toughest thing to do. Have a blessed , happy, wonderful, successful, healthy and long life my friend. You are my strength and my motivator.
