A changed friend

My dear friend, you have changed.
Your voice seems to have lost its melody,
it sounds so pale.
As if a Punjabi party song is played
on a D-minor scale.

My dear friend, you have changed.
You used to share how you spent your day and I listened peacefully to reduce your burden.
All I wanted to see you fly.
Now most of the times you’re not in a mood to talk, to my 100 words message,
a small Yes or No is your reply.

My dear friend, you have changed.
I hardly remember our last outing, was it a dinner or a trip?
It’s been a long time span.
I want to see you in person, share chocolates with you, but every time I ask!!
I hear, “Sorry!! But I already have a plan.”

My dear friend, you have changed.
Is this for real or I’m having a bad dream.
You are by my side but it doesn’t feel like we’re a team.

My dear friend, you have changed.
In-fact you were changing everyday when we were together.
Back then I knew where this change is coming from,
so that change didn’t have much of an effect.
And now we see each other after such a huge time gap,
I don’t have a link which leads to this new version of you,
may be that’s the reason now that our hearts don’t connect.


A special friend

A lot of people you see on your weekends
But there’s one person you wish to meet, that one special friend.
It feels like you’re meant for each other, your thoughts and habits, a perfect blend.
She trusts you and knows,”This guy will be on my side, this guy will defend.”

If you don’t like something you say it on her face, no need for fake sympathy, no need to pretend.
Such great is your mutual understanding, you can be your true self knowing she won’t offend.
Perfect clothes for every occasion, she knows what to wear, she knows the current trend.
Be it marriage, birthday party or any occasion, if she’s by your side, you’ll surely attend.

She cries and your body turns numb,
In-front of her demands you have to bend.
Only tears allowed are those of happiness,
wasting them otherwise you’ll never recommend.
She’s always your first priority,
to make her smile you’ll even transcend.
You love her company, you’ve pride on your friendship,
in case she needs support, your hand first extends…

But what if someday she stops choosing you,
will it be all over, will the story end.
She no more feelsĀ the same for you,
but to hurt you is not what she intends.
You feel shattered, you feel cheated,
all your efforts invested would yield no dividend…
This leaves you in a state of shock,
no talks, no meetings, no more time together left to spend.

You’re deeply engrossed with that smile on her face,
for that sweet smile only prayers you want to send.
Let her go, forgive her from the bottom of the heart,
if you do so trust me.. you’re a true legend.
