An ode to true friendhsip

An ode to true friendship,
an attempt to make them proud,
those who know me too well,
and let me know them too.

An ode that stands for them,
to proudly say we have each other,
to know we are what we are,
and to show the world the same.

An ode that has no start,
and sees no end,
for the bond that I share,
has a strong rare thread.

--------------------------------------

Somewhere someone has beautifully written " The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success". I just ponder how true it is – IT IS!!!

But looking at the words in bold, it is time and again proved, the rarity is realised by only the three rare people, while others around (read, circle of acquaintance) have a life long experience of figuring out if it still is the normality (if that really means the opposite of rarity), just to make sure they stand justified

-Dedicated with thanks to the rare men who have and who will make my life happy and beautiful. :-)
