A friend asked me today-what does friendship entail……it got me thinking and I tried to define it-what it is friendship?


What does friendship entail??

Is it security? Knowing that someone is there?

Is it happiness? The one that your friend creates?

Is its support? The fact that the person will stand by you?


Is it all the same?? Synonyms for an amalgamation of all these emotions??




Is it the need to be loved?

To be cherished, to be valued?

Is it the need to be there for someone?

To be the support, the strength, the happiness for others?

For it gives immense satisfaction…..



How far should one go?

Waiting for things to improve when the going gets tough?

When its just thorns that are visible, 

When the support has diminished to negligible,

When the happiness has weaned and its the tears that remain?



I would just say,Ask yourself,

Don’t you value the happy memories enough to hold on?

Isn’t the hope of making things better enough to egg you on?

Isn’t the person important enough for you to go on??



Its the relationship you chose for yourself,

Friends do not give up on each other



Maybe thats just a flawed perspective,

Maybe to ponder requires situations respective,


Sorry friend, for all I left you with is questions,

But look closely, and the questions should give you some answers.

Yes, I failed to define  freindship,

But then, what is it if not a spontaneous ship?


When the waves are high,

You need to decide,

Is it the journey that matters more,

or the fear of being unsuccessful in reaching the shore?


Till I am able to stand on board without being washed away,

Let me hold on to the faith that with all the ups and downs in the journey I will reach the shore…..

The injuries, the pains endured will fade,

Its the memories that I made on the way that will stay 🙂
