A Special Bond

Image Courtesy: Google Images
We may not have known each other the longest,
Nor we have known each other the best.
I knew you only as a friend of friend,
But now, you are my only friend.
My shyness has always been a hindrance in building a relationship,
But that is certainly not the case with our friendship.
You make me feel secure and comfortable with your warmth and kindness.
Our friendship blossomed towards the end of our course,
But I promise you I will maintain it till the end of my life.
You have been my strength during my worst,
I know with you by my side, I will eventually regain my best.
We may not be siblings by birth,
But you mean more to me than a sister I never had.
If I have ever hurt you, I hope never,
I pray the special bond we share remains forever.

    1. Exactly, if we are comfortable with someone we would easily be able to communicate with each other much more freely. No awkwardness. I like to be in such sort of relationships.

      Thank you so much Ash for your kind words, I am really glad you liked it. This was my first attempt at anything close to poetry so I am happy to be appreciated by wonderful writers like you. :)

    1. Thank you so much Sonia. :) Well when I wrote this poem, I was apprehensive whether I would be able to do justice writing a poem but wrote whatever I felt and I am very glad it has been well appreciated. Will surely try writing poems in future. Thank you for the confidence in me, really appreciate it. :)
