My Friend You're Like Water
(Sirsi, karnataka, India)
My friend, you're like water in the desert,
how to love and care for others
is what you taught me.
You placed your hand on my shoulders
when I said "I'm depressed."
I learnt what a real friend is
in a few encouraging sentences
demonstrated to me when I said
"I have something new to say", and you said
"please tell me, and when you are having
difficulty, then join me"
