I wrote these lines on 8th Jan, 2001. Ironical how true they ring even 15 years later.
My tears are dry,
but my heart does cry –
can’t you, dear humans, say,
just give me one more try?

Dear Friend, just like Love,
The flame of friendship too doesn’t die.
It may become dim with time,
If friends don’t wish, if they don’t try.
The plant of friendship needs care to bloom,
The share of true feelings, so it doesn’t dry –
Friendship dances to the tune of love and laughter,
And consoles hearts needing a shoulder to cry.

Hey friend, over here!
What’s the hurry?
What’s your problem buddy?
And what’s your worry?
There’s no need for you to hide,
No need to run away from sorrows –
Come on, I’ll give you a ride,
And take you to brighter ‘morrows.
There’s no need for you to cry,
For failing once isn’t a sin –
Take my support, make another try –
I’m sure that you will win.
There’s no need for you to be sad,
And no need to fear,
For hey, life isn’t all that bad,
And then, I’ll always be near.
