A wish...

if only i could feel what you felt,
and truly smile with you at times of joy.
if only i could feel what you felt,
and truly cry with you at times of sorrow.
i would call myself your truest friend,
if only i could feel what you felt.

If that were true, you would be me. My truest friend would be a compliment rather than a clone. Don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm enjoying reading some of your posts as well. I like the subtitle especially.

grunt...to be 'the truest' friend dont i need to know exactly what u r feeling and going thru ? feeling ur joys and sorrows, ie understanding them wont make me ur clone. im sure there is more to the human psyche, watcha say ?

thanx cliff

"if only i could feel what you felt"

thats whats lacking in our lives..We just try to stick on to our viewpoints...

short yet it conveys a lot!!

No, there needs to be some mystery surely?

Hay.. u stole my feelings :) I always say this that if the person understands wht exactly going on in my mind, then he / she can claim to be my true friend. Okay.. they don’t have to be mind reader n all, but shud able to make out atleast that what exactly the current state of my mind is, when they meet me or hear me!
I might not be able to put that in the exact words, but u have done it very well! I felt what u want to say here :)

I think that the fault might lie in your perspective... it might just be that the other person is offering enough hints but you fail to pick them up...

I feel that you need to delve deeper within yourself.

hmmm.. nicely said.. but its a point of contention..
for someone to be my true friend.. I should be comfortable in telling them how i feel. and even if they dont get it.. they shud always be thr for me..
but hving someone who "gets" you.. is well like the ultimate thing i seek.. but i feel it just dosen't exist..

i agree wit grunt..if ud know exactly how i felt... the intricacies of my emotions...the webs n the subtlities...ud be me...

Well said Gunshot... A perfect, true and admirable friendship you have related there...

However there is another kind of friendship that I see more often which I would describe like this...

If only I could be there,
and watch your cheeks glow…
If only I could be there,
to dab your tears when they flow…
If only I could be there,
by your side for you to know…
I would call myself your truest friend,
If only I could be there… just there…

loved your blog. Will visit more often now. :-) Keep writing...
Cheers!
Minakshi
