My Friends Poem by Bharati Nayak

My Friends

Rating: 4.8


Many friends do I have
How do I describe them
As I am what I am
Because of them

From my mother's womb
Till my final tomb
My days and nights
Are shaped by
My friends' love and whims

Is it not
When in mother's womb
Nutrition and tenderness
Of my mother
Shaped my body, spirit and soul?

After falling on this earth
Is it not
The beauty, care and love
To which I woke up
That helped me to stand up
May be called my friends?

Many many friends
Do I have
From my parents to teachers
Cousins to neighbors
From siblings to classmates
Colleagues to poet friends
I find a friend in them
Those who extend
Their friendly hands
Give their time and energy
Love and sympathy
Throw themselves around me
Both in the time of turmoil and peace
And have my character shaped.

I bow my head
In gratitude
And thank them
Million times
For all the beautiful gifts
To me
They have brought.
