You filled a void and stopped a strife
That was seething within,
And had caused quite a din!
But- before all that; on the day we met,
Little did I realise what I was to get.
You accepted me as I am and
Gently led me to another land.
With that gentleness you entered my life-
The subtleness with which one plays a fife.
The tale continues in the land you led me to
And I'm glad that there was not much ado
Befriending you has been so much fun,
A winding string of happiness that cannot be undone.
Our lives may meander in different ways.
But touched it has been, by Friendship's grace.
Our stay on Earth is but, ephemeral.
The relations we build? Eternal!
Such is the relation we share till the end,
Pride do I take when I say...
"You art MY friend."
