Today is the birthday of a very dear friend of mine- someone whom I look up to, someone who is not just a friend but also my mentor. Here’s a small poem wishing my dear friend a very happy birthday.
As I sit down to write the perfect birthday wish
I look back at all the years I have known you
The candid conversations and the arguments too
And yet somehow the friendship survived.
Not just a friend, but my mentor and guide
The anchor I hold on to when all quit my side
Filling my days with glorious sunshine
By your mere presence, O soul divine!
I wish your life be a kind, dreamy delight
With blissful days and peaceful nights
Devoid of false pretence or any commotion
With ever increasing faith and deeper devotion!
May you always radiate like the full moon
And keep dancing to the mischievous Krishna’s tune
Following the master’s instruction to perfection
Embraced in His grace and heavenly protection!
