Hope…!!

Why we live, for what reason, asked a friend,
He was in gloom, for him do I these thoughts lend,

When in doubt, of life’s purpose, dear,

Think of what, and who, you hold to your heart near

A little spark, a friendship was, you turned into fire,
A forgotten dream, life gave you back, you chased with desire,
Through hurdles, in your path, you ran swift,
Each moment, I spend with you, is to me a gift
Through life’s troubles, you stayed by my side, made it disappear,
When I was scared, you took my arm, now I have no fear,
I came to you, when my dreams fell apart; you stayed with me till now,
You have not let me down, my friend, even when you found true love
Two people, I know, who love you more than me,
They may not tell it aloud, yet its there for the world to see,
A thousand candles, show you the way, yet you want the dark,
Darkness is not your companion, when on life’s journey, you embark
I can tell you, my friend, you have many more a reason to live,
You have not yet, truly found, what joy your life does give,
When you can make, a little smile, turn into laughter,
Dream about the future now, worry about it after
Why we live, for what reason, you did ask me,
Yet the answer does not lie, in these words that I tell thee,
The answer lies, in your heart, deep within you know,
Your past, is what’s haunting you, worrying you about tomorrow
Forget the past, it is lost, it you cannot change,
Look toward the future, it is for you to change,
If it makes, an ounce of difference, to me your friendship means a lot,
Live your dream, without fear, life gives you what you sought





If the sky was my paper, the stars my words, the ocean my ink… it would still not be enough for me to write on “How much I value your friendship”.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
