i was recently reminded of the power words can have. it was silly of me to forget really, as i have seen for myself how genuine, sincere words can mean more than any grand gestures.
so, i am going to eventually write a poem for all of you guys to show you how much you mean to me. and i pray it it brightens your day and shows you all how much you mean to me.
here's the first one.
english class, the very first day
the teacher asked "on a desert island, what five things would you take?"
she answered "my prayer mat" straight away
and i thought this is the kind of friend i want to make
so much has changed since then
the years have gone by so fast
our friendship will be trialled again and again
yet i know it will always last
farzana, with her eyes like a cat
and the kind of beauty you just can't hide
but don't let the outer beauty distract
from the true beauty inside
for she will drop everything if only you ask
and would gladly give you everything she owns
she will help you out in any task
and is nothing but goodness to her very bones
zana, one of the first people i go to whenever things get bad
and when she's in need i want to help her cope
her way with words has won her many a friend, including my grandad!
and with her as your friend, you will never give up hope
