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’.
