‘A Real Friend’ by Dr. Rosie Patangia
The world is full of charismatic and true friends,
They will do everything to help you or mend;
They will stand by you like your shadow,
And guide you like a lamp every morrow.
A real friend is like a diamond,
Full of love and excitement;
A real friend will take you across a river that is fathoms deep,
And never let you cry or weep.
A real friend is like a distant star,
Though he remains far he show his profound care;
A real friend is like the sun,
He will shine on you and have lots of fun.
My real friend is a walking encyclopaedia,
I love to speak volumes of her prolific idea;
She is my friend in my weal and woe,
She is as pretty as a rainbow.
At times we agree to differ,
We are mostly like sisters and know the inns and outs of our daily affair;
Once we went out for lunch but I had to foot the bill,
At times we both fight tooth and nail.
When I beg her forgiveness she puts her foot down,
She always stands her ground;
But we always keep in touch with one another,
We are affable friends forever.
We work on our Herculean tasks by burning the midnight oil together for hours,
And amazing ideas discover;
Today i want to thank my dearest friend,
She is as good as her word.
I love my real friend with my heart and soul,
We have decided to continue our life’s journey by spending time together at a stretch and carry out our future goals.
