For a Friend

by Lakshmi

oh my friend, my friend
do you know, if i could, if i could
i would walk with you always
when the world grew dark
i would stand with you and wait
for the ascent of the sun
i would be where you are,
i would be what i could
for you.

oh my friend, my friend
maybe you know, i wish, i wish
we went slower on rainy days
and were kinder with ourselves
that for every tear we shed
we laughed a dozen times more
i would wish that for you,
i would wish what i could
for you.

oh my friend, my friend
you will never know, my love, my love
cannot be trapped into silken words
and where would i be without
your strength, your dignity,
where would i be without you
i would not be who i am,
i will give everything i have
to you.
