There are people who are not different. They are the difference.
People who don't just solve a problem, they let you reach the solution.
People who get hurt when you are hurt, and when they want to be there for you.
People who sit with you on a bus stop and talk about the most random things about your past, that you never thought you would share. At least not with someone who you know from just a few weeks.
People for whom you don't have to care about how long you know them from, but all you care if how long they will be yours.
People who's departure, as distant as it is, disturbs you enough to consider a departure too.
People who mean your microcosm to you. A world of your own, and no one else outside understands it.
People who you feel so close to, that you are shocked when you see that others are that close, or closer to them.
People who you don't necessarily talk hours to on the phone, every day. But when you do? that once in a while becomes minutes without your knowing it.
People who sometimes have the power and ability to finish your sentences, mouth your thoughts and crave the same things as you.
People who encourage you so silently that their confidence in you shows.
People who don't think about what they are missing out on, as long as you are happy..
People who you know will not go into super sentimental mode, just because the occasion is so.
People who you know will react rationally, but so super funnily that you will actually be on the floor laughing.
People who have a quiet strength around them, that gives you warmth too.
People who hug you so tight, you forget your entire day in that moment, and who peck you so sweetly, it feels like it's their birthright.
People who you want to be in your life forever, as a part of this parallel family.
People who teach you the art of parallel thinking, a parallel thought for every statement issued.
People who have the art of keeping an absolute poker face, while dishing out the fatalest of jokes and concealing the deepest of secrets.
People who are always game to try something new, no matter what, as long as it is not illegal.
People who you know will wrap you in their embrace when you are too out of your mind to string coherent words together.
People who don't need to be told what exactly is your choice, your taste and your selection. They know it because it fits them perfect.
People who just come to mean so much, there are no words to express how lucky you think you are to have them in your life.
Dhum, you are all this to me. And more. Happy Birthday!! I don't know what I would have done if you hadn't been a part of my life. I love you.
