Poems for Friendship

  • Johny my friend
    I had a friend
    His name was Johny
    'twas at my first day at school
    A day bright and sunny
    When we met first
    in the playground,
    'mid noise and dust
    He got in me a friend
    And I in him a friend found.

    We became the best of friends
    Before much time did run
    And passed all turns and bends
    In our school life with elan.
    If he scored big and I couldn't
    He wished I could too
    If got I good marks and he didn't
    How I wished he too got so.
    In the football ground
    If I helped him score a goal
    Danced I round and round
    And then he managed to get me
    In the school play, a good role.
    At lunchtime we shared our tiffin
    And exchanged books of ghosts and goblin.
    Together we came, 'gether did we go
    Even a'ter school did we hang around
    Saw the same thing, heard the same sound.

    And then happened the inevitable.
    A shocking thing, a thing terrible!
    Johny's dad had an accident
    And he breathed his last.
    To his home I went
    The room was full, many came
    Shaking their heads and speaking words same
    "Johny's dad, a good man
    Hardly a time to die
    May rest his soul in heaven
    And his bones in peace lie"
    Soon they took him away
    In a coffin brought in a hurry
    The priest spoke, the ground was made hollow
    And saw to it all
    That he lay six feet below.

    Johny came to school, one last time
    He bade us goodbye, his mom
    Was taking him far
    To the ranch of his grandfather.
    "Will you never come back?" asked I
    He shook his head and hugged me
    And said to me "goodbye"!
    Then Johny turned back
    That his tears I can't see
    But a friend's sorrow can a friend feel
    And though misty eyes made vision lack
    I could see enough still
    That the width 'tween us grew, away went he.

    Letters were a bridge
    But they were few
    And though I did fidge'
    In my heart I knew
    Distance was having indeed
    It's dirty effect on us
    Now alone I did tread
    Where we spent times together
    Laughed, cried and had a fight
    Now he was far
    And for some reason or other
    'twas not possible we could meet.
    Slowly, life made impossible
    Even letters to write.
    New friends came, and then
    Life did not seem so unfit .

    But then, we were destined to meet!

    A fine night it was
    I was waiting with bated breath
    before a glittering theatre
    with scribes, fans and cops armed to teeth.
    Then I saw a car
    And up went a roar
    From the crowd. A huge car
    pulled up before us.
    And there was a ruckus.
    "John! John Dawson!" cried out a belle.
    Out came the man within,
    "Johny! Hey Johny!" cried out I.
    But how hard may I try
    I knew I couldn't be seen.
    He blew a kiss and to everyone waved
    Then the one whom all craved
    Vanished inside the hall
    Heard he not my frenetic call
    He had company; scribes and big stars
    With whom he'll pass the hours.
    My heart sank. I lost the only
    chance. Now the gap 'tween us
    was wide as ever. And most certainly
    I could never meet him. I cursed myself profusely.
    to have come here.
    I came to meet Johny my friend.
    Not Johny the superstar.
    Another roar did the skies rend.
    I looked at the crowd
    they were as if chanting his name.
    Suddenly, I felt proud
    They all loved my friend, the Johny same.
    "Why be selfish?" I told myself
    I should be proud and glad
    That the Johny I knew, the little lad
    Had come this far. My Johny dear!
    I thanked God that I came here.
    I came to meet Johny and I met John
    Yet I felt happy that
    'twas after all the same Johny
    Who once with me at school sat
    And now the love of all who has won.
  • True friend
    A pal is one
    With whom you can have fun
    Who'll listen to you and talk
    With whom you can share a joke
    One you can drink with
    And who with you will dine
    One with whom all will look rosy
    All pretty and all fine...

    But when comes adversity
    You'll seldom find him by your side
    And even if stay does he,
    Not long will he abide.

    A true friend is one
    With whom you can talk
    'bout all under the sun
    With whom you can laugh and joke
    Drink, dine and have fun
    And who to you will lend a ear
    With him all will be Okey doke'.

    Then, when hardship knocks...
    You'll find him by your side
    You he'll never leave
    But try best to you guide
    When you sigh, he'll too heave
    When you fail to succeed
    He'll try to bring to fruition
    Your deed
    When you fall sick
    He'll bring relief
    When the whole world mocks,
    He'll stand by your belief
    If all else the other way looks
    He'll share your grief
    Even if harm befalls ye
    He'll stand in its way
    And will not hesitate even a bit
    To endanger his life, to lay down it.
    And prove that a friend in need
    Is a friend indeed!

    Such a friend is hard to come by
    Who'll laugh with you, with you who'll cry
    So if ever one you get,
    Try to be worthy of your mate
    And see that never breaks the bond
    That you with him ties fond.
  • Unknown Friendship
    first--sarcasm fills the air
    striking remarks then follows.
    small grins, dubious eyebrows,
    oh--let the arguments begin!
    time passes by...
    only acquiring the habit we have begun.
    though the longer the mockery is,
    the harder it is revealing each other's identity.
    ...ironically--my only goal is to uncover the real "you."
    unfortunately, there's just too many sarcasm,
    and barely little of the real us...
    I asked if we could change it,
    you said "yes--we can."
    deciding that nature will take its place
    we set aside our worries and proceed with life.
    while in our minds,
    there's still a boundary keeping us apart.
    will our friendship ever be at ease? my mind
    I hope
    I pray.
  • A Friend
    A friend is like a shade tree
    Beside a summer way.
    A friend is like the sunshine
    That makes a perfect day.
    A friend is like a flower
    That's worn close to the heart.
    A friend is like a treasure
    With which one will not part.

    Soul's Treasure
    A Friend is a Treasure
    A friend is someone we turn to,
    when our spirits need a lift.
    A friend is someone we treasure,
    for our friendship is a gift.
    A friend is someone who fills our lives,
    with beauty, joy and grace.
    And make the world we live in,
    a better and happier place.
  • Just Being Friends
    "Friendship happens in that special moment
    when someone reaches out to another,
    trusts, comforts, believes in another,
    and makes a special difference
    that no one else can make".
