Dearest Friend
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
  Friend, I gave you a heart
choked with corpses of unrealized hopes'
you blew the kiss of life on them
and they surge with zest anew

I gave to you dear friend
the ashes of singed emotions'
you placed them in the urn of your love
and they rise triumphant from the dead

To you I gave my mind
a chaos of garbled ideas'
you sifted the debris with calm endurance
and returned to me my sanity

I gave to you my life, friend -
a messy bit it was
you embalmed it in the shroud
of understanding, sympathy, love'

Behold! It is fragrant again!
