Sonnet: A Lost Friendship
You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.
Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.
What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?
Dear friend however,...
A father is the family's head -
The leader who both loves and cares;
He toils to see children well fed;
His experience, with all, he shares.
He is the strong man of the home;
Discipline is his duty prime;
Providing all the family's needs,
He spends his life and precious time.
