You.

“And I can barely look at you,
But every single time I do,
I know we’ll make it anywhere,
Away from here.
Light up, light up,
As if you have a choice,
Even if you cannot hear my voice-
I’ll be right beside you, dear.”
- Run (Snow Patrol)

It’s crazy how much these lyrics remind me of You.
I’ve had people walk into my life quietly and unobtrusively, whom I’ve become close to. I’ve had people run into my life, and with sudden speed, I’ve developed intense friendships. And then I’ve had You, sauntering casually into my life, and in a matter of months, changing it completely. Words, or even sentences, for that matter, will not be able to explain how much You mean to me. We started off with zilch interaction, barely knew of each other’s existence, and look at us now.
You got me through a very difficult time. I know You say that I shouldn’t thank You for it, but I do. I never opened up to anyone about it, You were the only one. You never gave me unwanted advice, You never pushed me this way or that, or made meaningless comments- You were just there, to listen and give support. You gave me the strength to pick myself up and carry on.
We have a strange relationship indeed. Looking back at the way we started, I can hardly imagine us as those two same people. We’ve truly come a long way. It’s a surreal friendship. We’re as different as football and pink pajamas, and yet somehow, I look forward to our special time together. Our ideologies are poles apart, and yet, somehow, I get You, and You get me. We’ve learnt to embrace each other’s little quirks and individual ideas- and it’s brought us closer. Our relationship isn’t defined by anything- and that’s what I love about it.
It’s ironic that You recommended the song Run to me in the first place, and now it reminds me so strongly of You. I stand by the lyrics- certain circumstances stand in the way, but we can make it anywhere, with a bond like this. And I will always be right beside you, even if I’m not there in person.
There’s so much I could say to you, but everything’s said, yet unsaid. Thank You for being in my life. It’s going to be an amazing journey indeed.

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog This. And That. took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

yeah, I don't want to comment (i agree with soliloquist). But I have been in the same situation - Been there. Felt it. That's all I can say. Also, 'run' is one of the most romantic songs I've heard.
