An Ode To A Friend

Everyone who smiled, when I needed one

Every ear that listened to me without judgement

Every mouth that uttered a kind word to me

Every hand that supported me when I faltered

Every leg that ran even one step with me

Every hearty laugh or giggle I shared with

Is a friend.

Some I know for long, from the steps of the school

With some it was as long as the next bus stop.

Some are related to me by birth

Some are carried over for the good deeds

From my previous birth.

I do not even know many by name or face

A friend’s kindness does not need a shape.
