Friendship Day Sonnet - Poem by Bernedita Rosinha Pinto

Adopt calmness
offer love
choose innocence
display respect
nurture friendship
invite closeness
socialize diligently
accept reality
surpass enmity
overlook faults
divide happiness
multiply generosity
add understanding
subtract unpleasantness
be the teacher, the devotee
of friendship;
be the war, the soldier
to win friends and be faithful;
be the crust, be the earth
be within and walk thro' this world
in friendship, with friends;
like how every grain of sugar
adds sweetness
every friend adds enchantment to time
when in troubles he lends a hand
when in sorrows he sheds a tear
when in happiness he laughs along.
