The Fragrance Of Friendship

I woke up in surprise; the day had finally revealed itself


With a lot of charm and beauty, it arrived in its real self.


My heart beamed in its rays of hope – a simple, true smile


That would remind our bond ever stronger with the mile!




But the dark was long and painful, without a trace of peace


Haunted by illusions of fear and worry that failed to cease.


I was waiting for the light to dawn, without any surety


Doubted the flawless truth, and lost the sparkle of purity.




The light was silently watching me, perhaps knowing I was blind;


Cast away the shadows I was trying to unravel in my mind.


Showed me the essence of life, decorating it with moments of fun


The Melody of Friendship blossomed in me, joy in a ton!




It manifests in many different forms, so unique in each!


Demands no return at all – a lesson for life to preach.


From the leaves and the wind to the sun and the moon


There’s friendship everywhere that evolved not so soon




Common yet very precious, I wonder, ‘Is there a better treasure?’


So much said words can’t consume even a part of its measure!


Across ages and lands, it has steered every one of us


To the great heights we discovered buried within ‘us’.
