Ever since the days
Of childhood, more close
To my heart is one image
Though treasured in my mind
Time exerting every effort it to erase
Though I faintly remember
Your once familiar face
There are many things
Change never can erase
And you are growing brighter
Unmarred by weary distance
How my heart for ancient love longs for
That in by-gone days we fathomed
My friend, I heard you have changed
That your gay face is now a face solemn
That you are now a celebrity,
very respectable a man
But I believe deep in your heart
I am your friend that I shall ever remain
The present is present
The past is past and will not go in vain
With all its joy and pain
As I wish to see you
I could foresee protocols
Dividing, delaying and restraining us
To remain friends always...........

    Though friends, if one becomes a celebrity in course of time, protocols delay and detain meetings and communication, seriously hindering personal contact.... Can't help! I understand your sentiments and feel the tone of mild disappointment over what is inevitable....! Great write! ! (Report) Reply
