They are free


For the good friends
May you don’t
Pay attention
As they are there
Always
For you
For the good things
That you don’t know
That you have
As the air you breathe
They are easy and sweet
They go deep in your soul
And flow with the blood
To your heart
to tackle
Pains
The burdens of the time
And out of dims
In your heart
they give you
the shine and glow
like the sun of morning
They are free
They are free
Who make you free
Genuine friends
They worth
A lot
Where the meaning
without them

    Oh! Friends they never pass away in our life.
    Sometimes friendship comes disguised in love. Guess who remains. The genuine love of freedom. (Report) Reply

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
