My Friend


My Friend,
You were there when I passed my exams
Sharing my screams of joy.

My Friend,
You were there when I met him
Sharing my stories in excitement.

My Friend,
You were there when I graduated
Sharing my pride and experience.

BUT…

My Friend,
You weren’t there when he dumped me,
Leaving me in hurt and sadness.
You weren’t there when I lost my job,
Leaving me in the dark and helpless.
You weren’t there to protect me,
Leaving me in loneliness.

Thank You, My Friend…
For sharing in my happiness & leaving in my sorrows,
For you have made me realise….
Not to call you ‘MY FRIEND’ again.
