A friend of mine, asked me, “How are you?”
“Where had you been from such a long time?”
“I asked for you, every place I had known.”
“You my friend are hard to find.”
Stunned by his questions, I looked in his eyes.
Took a fearless leap in his heart.
Embraced the warmth of his concern.
Then looked at him and begin to reply.
“My lovely friend, you don’t remember I think.”
“My house is just round the corner from here. ”
“For you and your success, I gave up my all.”
“And you after that, haven’t even given a call.”
“My mother had given her blessings to you everyday.”
“My wife thought of you as a brother.”
“It’s our family you said to me everyday.”
“And then you left us in darkness with no hope of light.”
Blesses I am that, I don’t have your greed.
That black heart of yours, is full of evil creed.
You and me were so same and different now,
Both sailing under the same currents.
I love hope and have a belief,
You have strength and your aim.
I help other and suffer in pain,
You don’t bother, unless you have something to gain.
I am alone and in misery,
You have surplus, and still alone.
You want me today around you for appreciation,
I want you everyday, as a friend indeed.
