The Distant Dear - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

My friend remains away from me
for days, for months and for years,
but when my friend comes back,
the friend,
with a sweet smile wipes all the tears.

My friend though tested and trusted,
I remain afraid of being ignored,
but when my friend comes back,
the friend,
removes all my uncalled fears.

My friend is a human being,
doing a lot for his nears,
but when my friend comes back,
the friend,
is lovely and nice for the distant dears!

    Remaining so far from a friend is so sad. The friend with a sweet smile wipes all the tears. A friend understands life's relationship. A friend with, love, affection and brilliance is a human being with morality and trust. Friend who is true keeps nice human values within. This poem is definitely excellent...10 (Report)Reply

    Sounds like a great friend to have. I miss my special friend, she died last year in December. I will always remember her with much love and appreciation. Enjoy your friend, nice poem. (Report)Reply
