Treasure Island

Savita Tyagi


A friend


Just around the corner is a friend indeed
When called upon in need
Sincere, vibrant, resilient
A flower in the garden
Or a companion in silence
Treading the path of life
Inch by inch or mile by mile
Leaving the footsteps behind
For us to remind
The time that we shared
With the heart that cared
It flew like a feather
Yet falls back from ether
Ever so gently to rest upon memory
Light and soft is remembrance's touch indeed
A listener, a teacher, a friend indeed
Just around the corner
When called upon in need.

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
