Rookie (13/08 / hyderabad, A.P, India.)


thanks for making me comfortable.
on my first day at hospital.
thanks for standing like a friend,
when i felt lone and when my hope was about end.

thanks for giving me courage,
when i felt weak and scared.
thanks for wiping my tears.
when i cried just before surgery,
as i was filled with all fears.

thanks for taking care of my life,
when i felt that i am about to die.
thanks for the help you lent,
when i was helpless like an infant.

thanks for all the cleaning and feeding,
when like a cripple i was lying.
thanks for treating me with a smile.
when i cried and even turned bile.

thanks for supporting me, when i was abate.
thanks for standing by my side, when i slept late.
thanks for all your help,
during the times when i tired to take care of myself.

thanks for making me smile again.
and making me realize the pain was not in vain..
thanks for listening, when i wanted to talk.
thanks for encouraging, when i started to walk.

i have no words.i have no ways.
just want to let you know.
i will be grateful always.

    Hi Arfa,
    'thanks for making me smile again.
    and making me realize the pain was not in vain..' These line suggest your maturity, purity, clarity............... what not!

    You expressed you gratitude to him in style and diction with taking help of fiction '
    I wonder in boundless amazement how feeling flowed in the poem in row. You have natural aura and flair to write love poems.

    I bet you enjoy if you read my poem - A Dolly Bird (A Love Poem)

    For many love is a magic, for some love is tragic, yet others love is logic. But for you love is nostalgic! A hearty congratulation to the poet. Your friendly Harindhar Reddy. (Report) Reply

    An insightful poem that describes true feelings of someone that is cared for. Miseries come in waves and the stoic presence and kindness of that dear friend helps surmount all those tribulations! It is not a topic that one sees often. Brilliantly conceived and well written. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
