joe ,an unparallel friend

i was born 1 month after joe.our parents were different….

we were neighbors.we grew together,joined play school together.there was a strong bond we shared, a bond no one could break.we were like one than two individuals.we together went and we together made absents.fever for him means fever for me too.we never allowed anyone to question our togetherness!

we were two unmanageable kids for our parents…but if we both were alone no one needed for us.never we sat in that wooden horse,alone in that play school..although there was only space for one to sit in the horse we were adamant and never allowed  the teacher to place us alone in that horse.all other activities we did together…we couldn’t imagine a day without another.

from the school we came back home to play again in mud ….creating much nuisance to our parents

we wandered together in areas no one might have the courage to …climbed up small hills….intruded into deeply wooded areas of  bushy forests…feeling vulnerable ,enjoying the nature’s beauty…plucking tiny fruits from the plants and tasting….jumping in to the small streams and swimming….running to the paddy field and grabbing the grains ….climbing mango trees and consuming tender mangoes…..playing with mud….cooking rice and vegetables from leaves and mud…..!going to the sweet shop with the stolen coins….walking long distance aimlessly chewing the sweets…..sharing (foolish) dreams….thinking those dreams to come true one day….sharing stories….stories our parents told us…

he brought me special sweets from home ….often…

without him my life would not  have completed…his friendship was so meaningful to me…he was so nice to me….i was most comfortable in his presence…..

i always yearned for his presence…it was a secure world…a world without worries….only happiness and joy…

the only one who loved my anger was joe…he said jokingly. he will be made to ashes if i look him angrily……all my anger vanishes on his comments…he tolerated me….

i never saw him in a negative mood….he was always calm and quite…

he has dark grey  eyes ….and glossy red lips …

when  we joined different schools…. we spend time together in home in the evenings telling stories from the school…we sat under that banyan tree for hours with no one in the vicinity…….unlike other males he was not an egoist….he accepted me unconditionally….

was it romance…?i do not know….only thing i remember is i loved him looking at my eyes…i loved him holding my hands….smiling at me…helping me to climb a tree … i was in a paradise…when he was with me…

my deep intense fervor for him never faded although  i was shifted to the hostel for my graduation…..

we   moved   in two directions in life ….

we lost touch…somewhere…..

from time to time memories hold me back…

… i love those memories of you…..no one in my life ever loved me like you….i delight to sit in your shade…you were an unparallel friend for me….we were not two …we were one……

‘my dove in the cleft of of the rock,

in the hiding places on the mountainside,

show me your face,

let me hear your voice;

for your voice is sweet,

and your face is lovely….
