An Enjoyable Friendship of Yore!
Enjoyable friendship of yore cannot be forgotten!
Job, family and engagements separate friends long;
Meeting of pals once in a blue moon is memorable;
Sharing of nostalgias of old days revives zeal again!
Thoughts of time enjoyed in picnics, tours give joy,
Renew resolves of friendship and appraise status
Revealing each one’s promises and achievements
Once again to have fresh commitments to be done!
How far have they drifted from their resolutions
And how far have they fulfilled their promises
They come to know to go ahead with renewed zeal!
But only meetings of pals once in a while can fix it.
Appraisal and strengthening of bond of friendship
May continue their journey or depart from unity
If new state of life makes it impossible to go on
With the old charm, joy and sense of fulfilment!
Friendship that withstands all calamities is real
And rare too to find among various groups of men!
But thoughts of past friendship remain in heart
Ever to remind one of pros and cons of friendship!
