The Friendship Should Last

Is it too naive to expect
That relationships will last?
That people will stay
And not become past.
Is it too stupid to assume
That friends will always matter?
That whatever happens
The friendship will keep getting better.
Every relationship grows
Into a beautiful thing;
Until it gets ruined by expectations
And the search for meaning.
Every friendship vows
To last a lifetime
Until life gets in the way
And spoils all rhythm and rhyme.
The start of every relationship
Makes you feel immensely special
The bond is just growing strong
And everything just falls into a pattern.
But as the good times pass
I often fear, the worst might happen
That people will leave
And I will be left alone; forgotten.
Hence all I ask is for us
To stay in touch.
The friendship should last
I don’t ask for much.

To Love and Life

To days that will stay with us forever,
To nights that we will forget never.

To these moments that we’ll always cherish,
To this friendship that will never perish.

To being there for each other through thick and thin,
To kicking each other’s ass when the good gets going.

To being the breath of relief in moments of stress,
To being the reason for each other’s nightmares.

To saying ‘fuck you’ even though we are wrong,
To saying ‘sorry’ even when we are right.
Here’s a cheers to friends and friendship,
Here’s a cheers to love and life.
