To You, My Friend
On this very day as I lay back and think of you
and sweet serene memories flood my mind,
I feel a smile spread across my face and I give you
these words that echo the feelings of my heart.
I will not promise you that I’d be there forever.
For we all know that change is never to be never.
For had everything been static and there forever,
we wouldn’t have known it was there at all.
As it is always said and so is it true
that you know how much something is valuable
only when it starts to fade away and slip from your fingers.
Then you know you can’t live without it even if you can’t, with it!
Strange as it may seem, yet you can’t deny it
that it is only then you realize someone’s presence in the world
and how much they’ve always filled your heart with pleasure
when in a solitary mood, their absence pricks you.
So, I say my friend; let’s not think of the time to come
when, who knows, where you and I would end up.
Let’s make most of the time we have now
and forever cherish these moments together.
One day, not long from now, we may not know each other
but forget each other we definitely will not ‘cause
isn’t it always, that what’s hard to get and what you don’t get
remains eternally with you, in your heart.
