(9 -21 / Thrissur (Kerala) / Vijayawada (A.P) , India)


He is my other friend..
A strange image but a tall one.
He chit chats less, makes rare visits,
And never eats with or says 'see you'.
He is a guy who wasn`t there by me before

He is my other friend...
A breeze of the kind across the phases of my summer,
A soft hand touching my wounds for a healing.
My other friend is there by me.
He is a guy who is seen around my small abode.

In the depths of the torments
Inflicted by the rest and the well known
My other friend surfaces like a pearl.
He lifts me up from the nadir of despairs.

Oh unknown spirits, who is this guy?

    I feel you are not alone in having the unseen friend who is with you all along and whose presence you feel strongly, It is felt almost by all human beings which is the action of the Cosmic Lord. (Report) Reply

    This unseen friend who heals our wounds, urges us to brave ahead and lifts us from the nadir of despair is the one whom we call God! (Though you may differ vehement, that divine presence is very much within you, I am sure! !)

    A great poem.... Dinesh! ! ! ! (Report) Reply
