On the night of March 24, 2018, a new friendship at Sharjah Airport….
It was time to say good-bye. Not sure when are we meeting again. But as the boarding call was announced, my heart said “5 more minutes please”. I was living my nineteens again and ridiculously! As the last announcement was made, a string sooo strong pulled me. Pulled me to eye up and say we will make effort to go out and laugh again. With a quick hug, happily I let go happiness.
It took me three days to analyse, what actually happened. Did I experience a deep friendship with no advantages, give or take after years? Those few hours, when my mobile was switched off, I had no worries about business, family or other responsibilities, I was myself. For me this friendship was not a need, but it happened. Those few moments that I shared, not necessarily just in terms of emotion – I was really not emotional about anyone in that sense – but somehow knowingly or unknowingly, moments of sharing were moments of uniting and becoming one in some way. I did not see friendship as an advantageous or useful thing, something that will help me live better or whatever else.
I share something very deep with them in those few moments of being together and I believe they do share that with me too. Our life just overlapped.
