My Best Friend - Poem by Sudipta Bhattacharyya

Grouping in utter darkness
I had forgotten my dreams;
My midnight sky used to wipe out
My lonely silent tears!
I have seen dark hands of friends,
Full of treachery and falsehood.
They used to sooth my dark lonely
Heart with their make believe words.
They used to laugh at my sorrows
And sufferings behind me.....!

Then a day came with a stranger;
The gentleness, the caressing hands
Took my hands that were left in loneliness.
What does a real friend want?
Love, careness, attention; not sympathy!
Those decades have passed, full of lies
And falsehood, full of treachery!

How fortunate I am to get a friend like you,
Without any hypocrisy, without any falsehood.
Dreams, once I have lost!
Hopes, once I have shattered!
Helping Hands, once I have departed!
Now, dear friend! Let my loneliness and
Darkness be shattered into thousands
And thousands brightened sunrays.

    One is really fortunate to have found a friend who is 'Without any hypocrisy, without any falsehood.' It is all the more comforting when it happens against a grim scenario. Thanks.
    I have seen dark hands of friends,
    Full of treachery and falsehood.
