People around me are so important. It is so important to have people around you love you and care about you.
I went to school for the last day on Sunday, to meet my classmates and to spend the happiest time with them . I didn’t wear the uniform.
On the way to school, we kept listening to music in the car and repeating the songs. We were so happy. And on he way back home, we kept listening to music too and we visited different quarters in my city that I had never seen nor visited than before.
We were so happy.
I kept talking to my teachers, they were such wonderful conversations, I didn't feel that I talk to my teachers, I felt that they are my friends.
Arabic teacher kept talking me about her family ,and listened to many poems I had written, and liked them. This teacher actually likes me too much, and she has my cell phone number and texting me from time to time. and I feel embarrassed (I know, I know, I don't have to feel embarrassed).
And French teacher took my number too, and promised me to send me a special CD of French songs with my friend SG, she likes my singing and me too much.
Physics and chemistry teachers are wonderful too, they kept saying prayers for me and asking me not to forget them, I really felt soooo shy.
Religion teacher invited me to her wedding party ,with the friend R. and she kept talking about her fiancé , she loves him too much, and he too. I wish them all the happiness.
My teacher Sb ,of history and geography, kept talking to me too and praising my personality. She said that she expects me to become such an important leader in the bright future of Iraq. She says that if she has all the word's problems and thinks of me, she will forget her problems soon. She says that I'm like the sun, has wonderful rays that warm many hearts.
And many other teachers, I know or don’t know, because everybody in the school knows me. When I was walking with my friends R, on the way , I met many girls and they all asked my in a hurry about my health and congratulated me for my high marks and wished me luck. I kept smiling (and later I had mouth ache because of smiling for a long time, really!!!) and wishing them luck. And guess what?
R later said " you have many friends, and I envy you that you can learn all their names by heart!!"
" what? Their names? I really don't know them !!"
R opened her mouth, and said " what????????? You don’t know their names?
Oh girl , you are too famous, like any famous singer I see in the TV, when she/he smiles for all the people and talking to them as he/she knows them!! My god!!"
And my cheeks turned sharply red, I wanted to leave that place soon., I felt so shy that I don’t know their names. Really !!! they are too many and I can't learn all the names. Thank God I can remember my name!!!!
Among the all, I can see and choose the best friend, all the friends are wonderful and are great helpers ( just like you) , but the best friend remains the best friend.
I had a great friend, Ran, was a good girl that can understand me clearly and can enter my eyes to see what lies beyond the iris. And spent many happy times with her.
After her leaving, I felt so sad, and I was spending long hours standing in the same spot that we both met each other for the first time. I love her too much, and although she is away, but she will stay in my heart.
I believe that there is no lines in the life, and nothing impossible. I believe that God always gives his serfs what they need of mercy and caring.
One day I met someone. I didn’t think that he could fill the space that had been created in my life.
This friend is older than me, and he could destroy the chains , and could give all the people a lesson that age is not important in the friendship.
The first friend, older than me, and at first, actually I was afraid that he might ignore my email, the first email I sent to him. But he replied, and I replied, he replied, then I replied, then. .. then. ..
Until , we became very close friends (at least, i consider him the friend), for long months, I was always sending him emails and telling him about my latest news , my hopes, ambitions, and dreams.
And in talking about dreams and ambitions I could find him the greatest first supporter ,in talking about problems I could see him the drops that can take the mud away. in my happy moments he feels happy for me, and sad times he feels sad for me. He is the true friend that any one likes to have.
When I hear any news, he is the first one that knows, I talk about him proudly among my other friends and relatives. The friend helped me to improve my English and, he taught me many words, and so, my love towards the knowledge grows bigger day after day.
The friend taught me a lot , to admire all the others' opinions and to try to explain our thoughts with the nice way that make everybody agrees to listen. He taught me also that the far distance is not that important in the way of the true friendship.
I love to call the friend Ammu ( ammu = uncle), using the Iraqi simple way in talking with him makes me feel so comfortable, and makes me admire him more and more that although he left Iraq in the early years of his life, but he still has the great love towards his fatherland, he cares about Iraq and Iraqis.
Friend!!! I hope you'll have a daughter, and you will name her my name, and will tell her about me, your friend that doesn't forget you at all, that prays for you and asks God to bless your way wherever you go and whatever you do.
Friend!! when you will come to Iraq, I'll be there in the airport holding a flower, and I will call the flower," The flower of friendship", the real friendship that doesn't know the differences in age, color, distance and tongue.
صديقي, ناصحي المثابر, في سرائي و في ضرائي تؤازر, تفرح لانتصاري, تسعد عند نجاحي, شمعة الطريق!!
طول الدرب, اني دوما معك , يا صديق انا معك لن اخذلك , طول العمر اني دوما معك ! يا شريك الوفاء..
For the last few weeks, my friend was absent, I have not heard about him, I was sooooooooo sad and I thought he might forget me and me and our friendship!! Oh, no!!!!"
And I lost the desire of eating, I was so gloomy, but after I heard his voice I felt of my soleil, that it began to spread the rays again.
His fatherly voice that made my tears fall down. before i called him, i said God's name more than hundred times, so i could talk to him.
Ok, the best friend might be busy, and so, I have to ask about him, the friend always stays in mind.
You are all dears, and I will never forget your kindness and you are all great helpers, I hope you will be having great friends like me, let your eyes see what lies beyond the sun.
To Be a friend..
