Dedicated to Shalomie Xavier, my friend for life!
Not related through a chord
You are a friend, nothing more!
Yet became a part of me,
Like a seldom gift from the Lord.
When I was, to pieces torn
When I cried hard, from my core
More than kin, more than foes
You stayed with me through high and low!
I don't remember how I came.
How I'd go, I wouldn't know.
Yet, for the many more births to go,
I want you with me - through and fro!
