The Friendship Tree


Lush and green,

proud and tall

stands the friendship tree;

its branches spread wide,

giving shade of  love...

Its roots deep in the soil!

Time goes by

and the winds of change blows,

the old leaves fall

but never lost, always there

feeding the tree

making it stronger,

branches spread wider!

New leaves sprout

tender and green,

filling the tree

again and again

and thus it goes on.

The cycle continues

and the friendship tree 

grows and grows...

Old friends never leaving you

making you stronger

always with you.

Happiness, sorrow,

aspirations, fear

everything shared.

New friendships giving you 

new hopes to go on

making you feel young and vibrant.

Family, Friends!!

what would life be

without them!
