Old Friends

I’d completed my schooling in 1993 from Army School on Kamaraj road-Bangalore. But from 2003 when I got my first job till 2011, I was out of touch with my school classmates. Then suddenly, I was contacted by one of my classmates Mohammed Akram Ali Mehkri on Facebook and then I gradually regained contact with all my Army School classmates. This poem was meant to express my relief at having found my old friends again.

What was lost, now I’ve found,
Friends from past, now gather around.

Years of tears, now wiped away,
Hope and happiness, now hold sway.

Fun and banter, once again heard,
Forgotten memories, once again stirred.

My earnest prayer – this should last,
That this friendship should remain steadfast.
