– Ritu Raag
My bestie, my buddy
Endures me when tough & giddy
Without ever complaining
& never demands my explaining.
I like fooling around with you, the most
& just being what’s really me
Because You extract my best from worst
Inseparable the pair of doves are we.
Your speechless stare
Set my thoughts on fire
Your eyes with ambitious flair
Are the priceless beauty to admire.
At heart, you are a kid, yet so mature
You hide away all your sacrificing lies
Friendship is the bay & you are the shore
Your shoulder is the one that console my cries
You unveil my ways, that are to be mend
With your ever available help to lend
Your subtle caring is felt by me
I just don’t reveal it, my friend.
You say. You won’t be affected if I die
You lack practice at the tricks to lie
I’ll kill you too, for the company of my
Because, It’s impossible to say you Good-Bye.
