I desire friendship that rises in the morning
And stays till the sun set in the evening
A desire to stay even when no one was around
To make pats, plays, smiles and joy abound
The sweetness of your companionship
Which grows past all known friendship
Makes you my family
Who loves genuinely

The clement wind keeps aware of this
She is happy that we are friends
And what’s greater than
Love, care and smiles
Which your company brings?
Even though the company parts
After a days adventure
On the times of quietness
I grow fond of your presence
Praying silently, in my solitude
That the green grass stays
And the blue clouds wait
For such moments we stay together
Moments of sharing, joy and care
What is better than genuine friendship?

For Chika Nwanosike and Ndongesit Okon.
