There's no such thing.
"I'll be with you forever."
"I'll always be there for you."
What a joke! Everyone uses those lines, including myself. Unaware and completely oblivious, we commit ourselves to things that are just not possible. Not our fault I guess, as mere mortals, we want things to last and always stay as is. No Change, no pain, no sorrow.
Until Reality hits.
Old bonds begins to break, new ones make their way. Times, places and people change. A natural part of life? I guess so. Truth is, no matter what the promises or vows, there words, forever and always, have no meaning. They're just sweet fillers to make you feel good for the moment, until everyone becomes engulfed by their own lives.
So even though saying you'll always be there forever doesn't mean anything and rationally speaking.. that's not how it works in this world. Nothing on earth is eternal. Everything and everyone eventually ends.
But I do know one thing for sure.
No matter where we are, whenever,
as long Allah keeps me living and breathing,
despite the distance,
despite the lack of communication,
you'll always be in my heart,
...forever and always.
... But I guess, no matter where life takes us, all of us, the time we've spent together and shared are going to be remembered and cherished forever and always too. Because friendships are really that strong! And just because life happens to be a certain, doesn't mean it's bad... it's all good. Everything happens for a good reason. We always begin friendships hoping they last forever.. so we're going to keep it that way. Doesn't matter where or when, friends and friendship sees no boundary!!
I guess I just contradicted myself.. or am I just running from the truth?
