“For how long can we be friends? ”


I once asked a friend
“For how long can we be friends? ”
Then came the reply;
“For as long as we want? ”

Then a thought was strengthened in my heart:
The end of this friendship is not in sight
Yet, that’s not a guarantee it will last till eternity
We’ve to fight for it.

No one knows
How long any friendship will last
Even the parties involved may not have an answer
Yet they’re the parties concerned, the major stakeholders.

Parties involved must be willing to make it last
Self must continually be submerged
Pride must not be a welcome guest
And above all, maturity should be given the lord.

Friendship is for both parties
And not a one man business
You both have to be willing to pay the sacrifice
Your sacrifices determine the life span of the friendship

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
