They sat across the Coffee table, two cups of Caffè Mocha remained in front of them steaming and untouched. Barista cafe across the office was their favorite meeting place outside office. They used to be more than colleagues in the office. They shared an unique bond between each other, lots of common passion and interest which made them close to each other.
Things were quite normal till couple of days before. They used to talk to each other and spend lots of time together and didn’t felt any odd in that, since they thought they were true friends. The truth hit them late, with a bang, that they were more than friends.
After lots of struggle they end up back in the cafe, facing each other. Everything, including the coffee, remained the same except one thing. They were no longer able to look into each others eyes and speak.
“May the love hidden deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams. May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.”
While writing this post, rain is blasting outside my balcony. Its been quite long time, might be 3 months, since it had rained. And don’t know how much I had longed for one. Because, from the time I remember, rain has been my best friend, my first lover for sure.
In my parents’ house I had the room, which opens the window to the open terrace, and I used to watch the rain through the window, don’t know how long. The rain drop tripping over my face, sometimes rough, sometimes smooth. I always loved the feeling.
I don’t know how many people will be out there like me, who loved rain like this. May be since I am born and living in Kerala, where the monsoon starts. I remember one good friend of mine giving me a present, “Kerala, where the rain was born”. My friend knows me very much, that I love the rain.
I had a concept home, where I will have a balcony, cozy or big, but I want to spent my retirement in that home, having a coffee along a good book and the rain drops still dripping over my face.
Rain, my dear friend, I love you very much. Keep visiting me!
