With some I share my feelings of love and deepest fears,
I cherish those moments of joy and despair,
I hold dear those hours of slogging for work.
With some others, I share that lovely tear,
I cherish those moments of encouragement and appreciation,
I hold dear those hours of mindless blabber.
And then there are yet some more, I treasure just a lovely smile,
I cherish those moments of respect and sympathy,
I hold dear that instant of help and support.
But there's something common about all of them,
Close friends, good friends, work friends, play friends, all of them,
Together they taught me the toughest lessons of life,
Together they inspired me to look beyond ambition,
Together they rejuvenated my faith in love, care and respect,
Together they touched my soul giving it a life of its own.
