Today’s blog is dedicated to my childhood friend Kevin who left us 5 years back, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lal! This one’s for you. ❣
Time stood still when I heard of your passing,
I went numb not knowing what to do.
It felt like an illusion,
but was a nightmare that came true.
You were simply the rare kind,
a friend and a brother to me.
Your list of 10 crushes,
I had my fun teasing you for it.
You were a friend with no complaints,
even when I tied a bow on your head
or pricked your finger for my lab practice.
Our friendship was meant to last a lifetime,
but death’s cold hand has no mercy.
So many memories we made
yet I yearn for more to remember you by.
I hope you found your peace,
a peace this world failed to give you.
Years have passed by without your presence,
but memories of you are still fresh.
I’m glad I got to call you a friend.
Dear friend, you are always missed
and you’ll be in our hearts forever.
