The friend long lost

How does it feel when a friend vanishes.

Someone as close as your shadow,

Someone whom you trust

And look up to as next to God.

A friendship that blossomed out of the blue.

Two females struggling their way through life’s odds,

Waiting eagerly ,yet not waiting for Life’s nods.

Hard working moms,working to create wonders,

Leading the brigade in respective fields.

And one day the sparkling star stops to respond.

No parting words,no goodbye.

And the one left wonders – Why?

    It surely creates a void. But, life gives back what it takes in some or the other form. I love your insight, its honest, as always. That is why probably I love your poems. One can relate to them.. They ponder on varied aspects of life. Nalini well done!!
