Summer of '09







Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life



Its around 4 in the morning. I've been feeling nostalgic about school, since I listened to Summer of 69 some two hours back. The song got stuck in my head and there goes my post after a long time( Usual show off ). Looks like I have written about you in almost every post and there has never been a single post concerning you. Well, here it is :)
You realise, this is about you don't you?

Should I stick to chronology here? 

Three of us, right from kindergarten, been a wonderful journey. Frankly I remember very few incidents, bleak memories till class four. 


Jimmy quit and Joey got married
Shoulda known we'd never get far


Class four was when he left and I never thought he'd come back. So did he. And it was just the two of us. Class seven and we were moved to two different classes. There were no special promises made? No BFF or something like that. 

Class eight and he came back to Chennai. Sadly a different place, different school. 

The two of us who remained had few occasions to interact. 


All the while you were in a different class. Time takes its own time to untwist chords that have been entwined ever since. We got introduced, still rarely interacted.

There came class eleven and that brought the four of us together. I have so much to share but there are so few words to describe what I feel for you three. 



And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone





There came the summer of '09  when time was up. We literally had to move away from each other. No shared lunches anymore. Cricket kept us together until academics ate up everyone's day. 

This whole post may not make any sense. This knows no order. 

We still meet up atleast twice a week *touchwood* I want that to remain the same and if not increase.

I wish the four of us always have each other.

There has never been a promise made but always kept. 

I wonder to the day as when the bond was born :)

You're more of a family than friends :)



I Wish we'd remain the same till all our hairs turn grey,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we lose all our teeth,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we gift each other a walking stick,
I Wish we'd remain the same till we blow a hundred candles off our cake,
I Wish we'd remain the same always and forever, whichever comes last.



Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life



With tonnes of love and what not,
