To my friends

This is a poem about my personal experience with my friends, who promised a visit to my place, but did not turn up. I was frustrated and then wrote this poem for them.

Waiting for Friends

To My Friend - Friendship

I remember my FRIEND,

The day that we MET,

You promised in the END,

Our sun would never SET,

I was a wailing CHILD,

You had put me to REST,

Even when I FAILED,

You had in me the TRUST ,

Only you reached my CORE,

while the rest saw only CREST,

Could I wish some MORE,

You gave me always the BEST.

Dr.P.Elayaraja

This happened during my undergraduate days. Three of my close friends did this to me. Those days did not have mobile phones and I even did not have a phone at home.

Very nice poem. I too would be frustrated when my friends don't turn up.

Friends promise us many things, but there are few that we can always count on.

Hi. Friendship is actually quite difficult and needs hard work isn't it? When we are led to believe it is the easiest thing to do.
Thanks for the congrats, how did you know I was author of the day? I don't know where to look for that information, I'm confused.

I like what Ralph Waldo Emerson said about his friends . "I didn't find my friends, the good God gave them to me." I fully agree with you both. My circle is fairly small, but tight. This shows your heart.
