As Long As
We Are Friends

- Shantanu Sinha -

(Minneapolis)

Keep your tears in your heart
For you have miles to go
Keep enjoying life and your friends
Never say them 'no'.

Friends are perhaps
You can think of and smile,
They remain with you
Like fond memories all the while.

So never you think
That friends are spare,
For whenever you need them
They always are there.

Though you have to make sacrifices,
Though you have to mourn and cry,
With every bud that blossoms
And a miracle taking place;

As petals open one by one
To reveal a flower's face.
And like a flower, friendship begins to bloom
Where there is warmth, caring and

Heart-felt understanding, giving its strength to grow
Into a magical miracle,

That friends only can know.
