This is a very special poem for… let me not be a spoiler. Within a minute, you’ll surely find out who it is for! I hope this poem reaches to all of you. I love you guys a lot! 😀
Writing about anything you like,
Is an easy thing for most of us.
But many-a-things that we like,
Are complicated and, sometimes, bogus.
What do you think is written?
What can be scribbled here?
Is it about a cat and her kitten?
Or about a girl and her teddy bear?
As far as I can remember,
Nursery to the present, I know him still.
He is my best friend ever,
The guy whose name is Nikhil.
One more friend I have had,
Who was truly a cool guy.
He was Pema Hang – a funny lad,
Who gave everything a quick try.
I had friends – some good and some bad,
Some friends whom I want to meet still.
Some made me happy and even made me glad,
You are one such friend, Swapneel!
Leaving my secondary school felt bad,
I had to leave everyone behind.
Somewhere deep inside, I was really sad,
But somehow, I knew, life was even kind.
Diploma brought new friends for me,
They rushed in like the flow of an ocean.
Some came smooth and some dropped in nastily,
I picked up a drop and that was Roshan.
Life was now stable and locked,
I needed a new pair of keys,
Like a tornado, this guy struck,
And made himself known as Ashish.
Next came my friend-cum-brother,
Who was bestowed with a good body mass.
He was notorious yet very sober,
And we knew him as Kailash.
Luckily, life gives you so much,
Friends come like gold ‘n’-carat.
The ‘n’ for which you can give your own touch,
Comes priceless for someone like you, Bharat!
When people tend to spend a lot,
And mercilessly kill animals for fur.
You’ve ought to have a friend at spot,
Like you were there, Tarkeshwar!
This simple lad who is short,
Has a pretty muscular body.
His name is Bikram, but,
We call him Nepal – the college hottie!
Okay, that last line was a joke,
But I seriously have a friend.
Who prefers Maaza to Coke,
That’s Narendra – our group president.
Should I forget the good ones,
Please take it as an allergy.
Because it is a luck-by-chance,
To get a friendly brother like Dorjee.
Where do I go now?
Is it the end of the loo?
Hey Dawa, in anger, don’t you bow,
I seriously haven’t forgotten you.
No girl in this list, it seems!
But that may surely be a lie.
My friendship with her teems,
The girl in this list is Sunita Rai!
This is a poem for you all,
Who have made my life better.
Maybe, sometimes I’ve made you fall,
But we’ll always be friends forever.
