without friends

Without friends..

Without friends, 
Life would be like…a garden, but  without flowers 
Like a day, without light…

Without friends,
Life would be like….an ocean, but without the fish
Like a promising future,  without a past…

Without friends, 
Life would be like… a prison,  but without a crime
Like a bird, without his wings..

Without friends, 
Life would be like … being born today and dying tomorrow;
Like a wholesome loneliness to all of us..

This poem was originally written by me in Portuguese years ago.
Maybe someday I will post the Portuguese version of it.
