When I say

When I say, I am your friend,
I give a bit of me, for you to own,
To fill a part of my life,
With a spirit of your own.
I’ll be there nodding vehemently to everything you say,
And to everything you dont.

I’ll travel all night to spend an hour with you,
And miss planes or trains if  you need me to.
Ill wait outside your door for hours,
Just to make you smile for a while.
A lil banter, a cup of Chai, a warm hug,
Once in a while.

At times,you will hear all that I feel,
A little more than, what you can deal,
But please know, this is how I heal.
And when I am quiet, you will know,
That is, how I let my moods keel.

Ill yell at you, if you make me mad,
But I’ll be the first one to say,
I am sorry, I made you sad.
I’ll always let you win,
All our petty fights,
And cheer you along,
On all your big fights.
And when you are down,
All you need is a dose,
Of inconsequential chatter with me,
to turn your frown upside down.

I will send you a poem or a mail,
To tell you that  I love you so.
I will be with you,
Every step of your way.
And wont hesitate to say,
I miss you much and,
My life gets by a little harder
Without you by my side..
