Between Friends

a poem by Tanushree Nair

Did you ever know that it
is b’cos of you
that I succeeded
that I took the right path
that I never felt lonely
that this world is a beautiful place to live in
that I laugh off sorrows to cry on your shoulder
that I have a light heart
that I learned to trust others
that I learned to believe in myself
that I understood that the smallest things in life are the biggest
and the biggest of the problems seem small
if you are with me.

Friend it is b’cos of you that this world seems a wonder
of stars, each star uncovering a secret, a mystery of life.
With you by my side to solve it.
