Friendship is an amazing relationship,
I don't know how others understand,
I don't know how others withstand,
It is something hidden and locked by a zip.
By the passage of time,
A friend is gradually exposed,
Constituents are often decomposed,
Keeping the relations becomes a crime.
If the common interest,
Is very much alike,
And if the same thing, both dislike,
The friend is nearer than nearest.
I never found dearer than dearest,
Wish you good luck and all the best.
Friendship needs trust and sighting,
Often a friend like a comedian of Hollywood,
Says or writes some thing not very good
Ask him to explain his saying or writing.
Before changing your attitude or the behavior,
You should inform your friend about his lacks,
Don't make his heart a wall of cracks,
You shouldn't be destroyer, act like a savior.
I didn't find a savior in my life,
Except one, my lovely wife!
