Friendship long poem

Uploaded by Ramapriya Nr

One whom I know for ages wanted me to
explain what friendship is all about

Frankly I too was seeking an answer to it
but stood helpless in asking the same

Though I am unaware what friendship means
I am aware there exists a bondage which is hard to crack

Ever since I stepped out as a kid from my parents’ safe domain
the then tender brain of mine sent a feeler to that of his
and the then infant vision of mine colluded with that of his

The chemistry between we two cemented in mystery in no time

Those childhood pranks not withstanding
we grew up together as if a part of each other

we were there together every where
in school and college
on play ground
in movie theatres
in hotels
sometimes getting annoyed with each other
sometimes getting upbeat over each other
sometimes missing each other badly

Time waits for none to stop
fate too took us apart

He left Home to defend the nation
I stayed at home to waste the time

decades elapsed but the bondage was still in tact
Individually we each grew up from one to four

he climbed the ladder to reach the glory
I fell down the ladder to almost reach the gory

Hundreds of days passed without each other’s talk
not a single moment lost in wanting to be together

We may have grown up and our body might be withering
But our bondage still remains solid with no signs of cracking

May be such a relationship is called “friendship”, I really don’t know

Friendship short poem

A bond unbroken, A promise so strong, Tested several times, but still it exists fighting all the odds. Grew up as classmates sharing each other’s part, Laughing and giggling we spent our days together, Unnecessary fights, continuous leg pulling, arguments,

Friendship   An Oasis prose poem

Friendship is an oasis that is bound from the north by eternity’s wrinkle-free forehead, by life’s arid desert of mishaps from the south, by liberty that is in the hands of those who give it in order to have it
