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’.
