Treasure Island

Kavya S Babu

Nothing more to pen

A letter to you, my dearest friend
Found and lost somewhere in the tale.
A chair for you to be beside
Lay amidst the occupied ones,
I excused, 'My friend will come just now.'
Eyes stride past many a face
Amongst the praising mob in front
But never found you, my dear friend!

It was you who said to go ahead
And that is why I reached the flag.
You triggered my dreams to reality.
You filled my spaces born vacant.
You just tapped and said to cheer up;
'Times will be better and prosperous! '
I left my glory and life is now gloomy.
Still your memories in youth glory!

To my kids, who muse at me; old Papa,
Humming some rhyming unknown scripts,
I told 'I had a friend...a friend in need.'
Waiting for you, my dear old friend
Don't know where you are, but still awaiting
Hope this might reach you, a heart to heart post
Here's nothing more to pen
'You are a friend indeed! '

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
