I am there to stay.

People come in and move out of your life like the trains in a railway station. Very rarely do they stay like that tattoo on the back of your hands. Long back, before I even realized who my true friends are, I had heard of a quote.

People come into your lives in three ways – for a reason or for a season or sometimes for the lifetime.

I think I have had people in my life from all those three categories. Some people come in at the right time, unexpectedly though, when you are in trouble, help you out and then move on. Some people come just to give you or themselves some fun time and then move on. But rarely people enter into your life and heart to stay.

To stay when you are happy and having the best time of your life.

To stay when you are in troubled waters lending you the life jacket.

To stay when you feel you are at the end of the world, to open up a door and show you there still a long way to go.

To stay to support and encourage you to do what you love.

To stay to give you the courage to speak up and make a difference.

To stay to congratulate you on your success and drink with you on your failures.

To stay just to listen you ramble on.

To stay to hold your hand when you are about to fall and pull you up, helping you stand straight and tall.

To stay to accept your weaknesses and strengths.

To stay to go along with you on some unknown paths.

To stay to love you and be with you no matter how bad or good life gets.


I have had only one such friend in my life and I call myself lucky to get at least that! But this post is not for her, its a dedication to myself – because I am the kind of friend who is there for your lifetime and I know it. I value myself for it. I have my flaws but I am strong in friendships.

I am there even when you are stepping into hell.

Cheers to me!
