Saga Of Friendship - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

The words shattered
His countless dreams
And he could imagine
His sand castles being
Knocked down by waves.
Remaining days could be
Counted on his fingers...
Alas! So much left undone.
Being stable was
His sole shield.
Wise proverbs instilled hope
To his flickering mind -
'A friend in need
Is a friend indeed'
And amazing indeed!
His friend stood beside,
With smiles of gratitude,
To donate an organ,
To shower love and charity,
To a helpful soul-mate,
Whom he owed his life,
His humble effort,
To save his friend,
To save a precious life.

    Probably the best thing that human beings can offer
    to another is friendship, and to raise it to a higher
    bond of intimacy is the best that life can offer. A
    beautiful verse.
