A magical friendship day greeting card..Friend,I never expect tons of love, but only a milligram of remembrance.
Stumbling and falling in the snow,I slowly made my way to the barn down the hillside.The weather was icy cold and the snow covered the treetops and houses making them look very beautiful.Not a sound could be heard nearby as everyone was busy warming themselves by the fireside in their homes.
Tracy had been my best friend since childhood and we had stuck together through thick and thin in our lives.
She was the only person in the world who could read my mind,my thoughts and my heart.She was very dear to me and had been with me when I was in any kind of trouble.
Remembering her sad face made me start crying again as I could not forget her last words...
She had been suffering with pancreatic cancer and it had been detected very late.She had started vomiting blood and complained of severe pain in her abdomen.The doctors said she had only a few days left as her health was deteriorating.She had told me that she had buried a dear thing for me in a magical box in the barn during her school days.She told me to find and keep it with me as it would give her peace in her sleep that it was with me..
I opened the barn door and entered the dark room.I searched for a place where we used to sit often and started digging in haste.
Soon I found a magical box which looked like a vintage one with gold letters "Friendship never dies.."
I started crying after looking at those words on the box.
I opened it and found a friendship letter written in Tracy's beautiful handwriting.She had written a set of poems for me! I was so touched.
"Your importance and value I cannot estimate
The ups and downs in our lives till date
Friendship is a gem once polished can shine
Making two souls and hearts entwine
True friendship is bestowed to the lucky few
It shines like a star glittering anew"
Open the next page ,there is more to come.I flipped the page again and there was another poem for me.
"You stood by my side
And had nothing to hide
You took my hand in yours
Comforting for many hours
Hardships are many
They cant be faced alone
Rays of hope can be found
And trust can be grown"
Hey friend,don't cry read the next one is also for you.O files and turned the paper again and it was like magic coming alive.The way she had written those poems for me so smartly,I still could not l believe how talented she had been since childhood.
It now read,
"Share your joke with me
Or any gossip in class
Cry your heart with me
It is clear as a glass
Hide anything from me
I will surely find it out
Your face reveals your mind
And your eyes are your heart!"
Now stop crying like a sissy and come to me dear were the last words in the last page..
I started crying loudly with so much grief as I knew I could never go to her now nor could I bring her back from where she was now,my invaluable and precious friend...
