As the cellphone beeped, I read the message in it,
I was busy at some work, I wondered what is it
Messages would be charged double it said, I wondered why
Tis Friendship Day it said, I let it pass with a sigh.
Yet another of those days when there would be a hullabaloo
Why do we need special day, to express, love our friends we do
Friends are a treasure for ever, they need not be honoured
They are within us as a part of us, why a special day to be pampered?
Our hearts beat for the success of a friend, just as we share their tears too
A day specially for them, is so less, it takes an eternity to tell them ‘I love you’
They are the jewels of our life, always ready with time to spare
They are the reason we can move on, as they are always just and fair.
Why a special day just for them, we can give our entire life
Friends are those who are by us, whether it is joy or strife
Let us therefore resolve to befriend Mother Nature on this day
For she is our best friend, we can not let her sway.
For those bands that we tie on wrists, a hundred bands go waste,
Let us resolve to protect Mother Nature on this day, and never be in haste
Days come, days go, and we really do not need to show
Friends are there forever, but Mother Nature we should not let go…
