Friendship… True Bliss of Life!

a poem by Bhavna Sahay

There are thousands of people I know in this world, who are all around,
But like this very special person there’s none other whom I’ve found.
And trumpets in favour of her I always do blow,
Who’s this very special person would you really like to know?
She’s my terrific friend, who’s been the best by far,
I wouldn’t trade her for anything – not even a house or a car
‘Coz friendship is a bond that’s really close to my heart,
Of my life from the beginning, it has always been a major part.
Friendship is a cherished virtue that’s not found in people all
It brings you close to people who may be short, thin, fat or tall.
A true friend does not need to be well-off, rich or affluent
But the purity and tranquility of her heart should have an attracting scent.
Friendship is a feeling that brings people together
Don’t birds fly in a flock – the ones who’re of the same feather?
Traces of friendship can be seen in every living thing,
All the good qualities of a person, out, it does bring.
Sharing, caring, love and joy is what we learn,
It teaches us something new in life’s each and every turn.
A true friend is actually the one who guides you all the way
By chance if you went wrong she definitely would say.
In polite words to her friend to correct herself before it’s too late.
She’d inspire her to work hard for herself and not depend upon fate.
But if a bad friend you find by an error
She’s definitely is going fill your entire life with utmost terror!
She’d encourage you to do things that are fun – but wrong
And then you wouldn’t be unique anymore – just one in the throng!
A true friend to find nowadays is really very tough,
‘Coz the world’s not the same anymore, it’s wicked and rough!
Normally friends’ as they are called are quite easy to find
But the species called true friends are nearly extinct – keep that in mind!
So I’m quite ecstatic that I’ve found someone like that,
To be able to find someone so true I indeed deserve a pat.
Friendship in this world is the greatest bliss and joy
And to have successfully achieved it I’m really lucky – Oh Boy!
