A Gift For Life - Poem by Abdul Wahab

My friend gave me
A gift for life

With all grace
I took it

and wear
on my neck

like a necklace
as if I won

a memento
in return of my love

and that is
of grief and sorrow.

    If we all keep our friends gifts as a necklace in memento we would do a jumping dance like an African Masai: -) (Report) Reply
