We started as strangers….just classmates….knowing nothing about each other. Our conversation never went deeper than ‘hi’. Strange to each other, our lives went ahead. My life was different from yours, my groups were different from yours…never thinking that it will collide one day.
But it did. I can’t remember how….I just know that it did. We started talking about life, about ourselves and everything was great. Soon, the bond grew deeper….we got closer and life got better. Throughout our school lives, we remained close. We understood each other. Our views were different from each others but it never caused a problem. We respected each others opinion while not changing our views. We fought and then made up.
Our lives were connected but at the same time different. We didn’t call each other daily but whenever did, our conversations went for hours. We enjoyed each others company. We could talk about anything and everything. It was just so easy to spend time with you.
Then, we grew apart. It wasn’t a fight or a quarrel we had. Life just came between us. We chose our own different paths and went ahead of the road we chose without each others company. At times, I used to see the old pictures that was still in my phone’s memory and used to smile and soon that smile would convert into pain in my heart, knowing that I can’t go back.
We called each other once in a while for some time but soon that also ceased and we just went back to the place from where we started: strangers. The only difference was that now, we were strangers with memories.
And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won’t be coming back
No more hanging out cause we’re on a different track”
