I stop a second and look around,
halt the usual daily chores ,
Know I must, what have I today,
Before opening any other new doors.
My weakness lies in family alone,
at whom the world for me stops,
and strength is given by my friends,
who make even tears like honey-drops.
My friends, my life-saving drugs ,
In my mind's eyes I gather with care,
and proudly display to all today,
my angels, who are always there.
I begin with that one person,
who became my sane rock wall,
she was my source of stability,
my shield, my guide, my all.
Then came that disguised foe,
wearing the torturing mischief mask,
he took that off one random day,
and handed me the "best friend" task.
Following him, as closely as ever,
with a wit so sharp, and so bright a mind,
was to whom belonged my soft corner,
my deepest fondness and a faith quite blind.
With the last two, also followed,
an unwelcome stranger from far and long,
who settled into my life so soon and well,
like she'd been there from all along.
Then life took a crazy turn to find,
a sudden lapse in people to trust,
no one seemed to fit the places,
of the footprints in my heart's crust.
But then new steps were formed,
when by my luck I happily found,
with her wise thinking and deep emotion,
the elder sister I'd been looking around.
Closely came another such wonder,
who filled such joy in my lonely heart,
gave so much fondness and trust to me,
That no more from him can I live apart.
Finally came the surprising gift,
who was always there, but I failed to see,
he lends me the desperately needed ear,
a confidante, in him, I've found for me.
Thus I look at the kitty I hold,
of merry memories of fondness and love,
and blessed I truly feel right now,
for all these angels sent from above.
