When the smile on your face,
Brings radiance on mine,
While a droplet of tear in your eyes,
Steals my happiness and shine.
Years together we played and fought,
And never did we care for any other thought,
Jokes and pranks all the way,
Was the gist of life for a day.
As we grew up and went apart,
On the path of life with a new start,
The road seemed so difficult,
With the friend’s depart.
Travelling down the culvert of life,
Facing everyday some kind of strife,
We forget to live and smile,
Coz the friend whom we ignored ,
By whose jokes we got bored;
Is the one who kept us away from wile.
Friends go away,
But friendship stays,
Even after years apart,
Two friends still laugh,
As they did while eating the tart.
We realise this when we become old,
When there’re many stories to be retold,
Because in the fight for survival,
We forget all our friends ,
And remembered the rivals.
Before it gets so late ,
That your friends become like nameplates,
Revive the bonds and the ties,
For this is the true value of life.
