Different were brought ups and the places we were made
Each other never we knew in the five times of the decade
Days spent so few, but very near I feel
Your value system and undeterred will
Men I saw many since not one in many years
Like you none filled my heart with affectionate tears
Liberty I took when I felt I want
Your modesty you never said you can’t
Thanks to you my new confidante
We value your friendship with us for life
And never shall I, let down you or your belief
Throughout the journey of our friendship
Not only in this but every trip.
*Being expatriates, it was difficult times for us and loneliness was taking us over. It’s very difficult to get a trustworthy friend these days in this materialistic world. At that time a friend entered into our lives, though it is late in our lives, we thought God has given us a nice friend, this poem is dedicated to you my friend.
