To my friend

a poem by Angarika Dutta

No good messages to send,
No pictures showing we are friends,
Only a lone heart that remembers you often;
And in the twilight or sitting by the moon,
It cherishes to meet you very soon.

Friendship

a poem by Angarika Dutta

When days are gloomy and nights are sore,
When oft misfortune knocks at the door,
When there’s none to straighten our way;
You shine like a celestial lamplighter,
Guiding our way.
When no hope’s left in our life,
It is you who help us to strive
Even when the whole world shuts its doors and windows down,
Still you are never seen to frown.
That you are precious all know so well;
And so never tried to buy you or sell,
Different people think differently about you
Some call you a ‘BLISS IN SOLITUDE’
And some ‘A GIFT GIFTED TO FEW’
But whatsoever people may presume about you’
One thing’s for sure
NONE CAN LIVE WITHOUT YOU.
