The Bond of Friendship

the bond…the strength…no limits bound
hold on ways we belong to a friendship found

it is you within me that i see… as i am within you
in our thoughts and in our hearts we always knew

that we knot this bond on friendships hue
i have you and you have me…did we ever had a clue

like the water’s current that comes rushing through
we crumble into rocky obstacles with the strength we drew

the shallow water creams and roars to stop the flow
yet it incessantly goes to finds its own depth in blue

for it is in its deep that waters stood still and glow
along with the silent breeze of the cold wind that blows

the serenity it brings to life as we go on existing
with no regrets and no refrain we persist on believing

the strength of this bond is curved in the core of our heart
to perceive the moments where ends will always be the start

embellish friendship where love is stored far beyond compare
to in leaven with wholeness and sincerity, only hearts can share
