To that friend – Poem for Friend
I once had a friend,
we used to hang out like there was no end,
Life was like a fantasy land,
a place so grand, that makes you crazy- crazy, crazy happy!
Oh, we loved each other and played all day, like the whole world was our playground,
then one day that friend moved around, the world all of a sudden became empty.
In touch we did keep, until life gave us a kick and that friend got replaced by others,
Once in a while those memories flashed and I shed a few tears- of joy and happiness,
thinking today I will call that friend as life kept us moving further apart and ahead.
One day I got a message- “Ms. Your friend is no more”,
the bitterest tears are shed over graves for words left unspoken and deeds left undone.
In the end we remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.
To that friend who’s shining up there and sending all the light my way,
a friend who was hard to find, hard to leave and impossible to forget-
“ there’s nothing I can change wherever you are, whichever world you go in, there’s always going to be one
empty place for you in my heart nobody can replace never gone, never far, in my heart is where you are.
Always close, every day, every step along the way. Even though for now, we’ve got to say good-bye, you’ll be
there forever in my life”
