An Ode To My Friend - Poem by Fahima Mohideen

One day we were laughing
Reveling and carousing
The next were crying
To part we were dreading.

I was ill that year
Much later, it was, that I came to school
But see you I did, with a peer
And I decided to seek you later.

Later came, and I was shy
But you came up
And asked my name.
And thus began our friendship.

It was funny and light
Often serious, at times
We fought, we laughed
We squabbled and we talked.

Secrets we shared,
And confidants we were
Advices and apologies-
Oft repeated gestures.

When that year passed,
The next walked in,
And so it went on
For four long years.

I admired you
I loved you
And deep inside my heart
I often took this friendship
As the sweetest of sisterhoods.

At times I hated you
But when I saw you cry
Inexplicably, I don't know how-
I felt tears sting my eyes.

And then today came
And we were to part
For ever and for ever
Never to meet again.

We tried to keep in touch
But it didn’t work out well
And that was when I found out
You weren’t true after all.

It’s difficult to face it
When it descends out of the blue
But soon it was that I learned-
Life is no bed of roses.

Often times, I think of our days,
Of reveling and carousing
And sharing secrets under blankets.

After all this time,
And a search that still persists
I know, that though it didn’t last
It was the sweetest of sisterhoods
For I haven’t found it's match.

(P.S. - This poem is dedicated to one of my best friends.)
