Day, my lifelong, friend
Thousands of times have we said good morning to each other and
As many times have we said goodnight,
You have waken me up with the caresses of sun’s rays and put me 
To sleep with the lullabies of sunset’s myriad hues
Many a time you were calm as a harbor's waters and others you were 
Turbulent as the stormy sea but I loved you the same, so we 
Inseparable have remained.  

How many times have I waited for your coming you will never know
Neither will you know how much I have prayed to see you faster go when so 
Unkind you were to me
You, however, kept your pace unchanged, obeying only the will of mighty time.

All these years you have brought to me:
Joys and sorrows, 
Laughter and tears, 
Successes and failures
Health and sickness 
Life and death,
You were the best of my friends and the worst of my enemies but
United we remained, side by side we stood. How could it be otherwise when we  
Both wished our destiny to fulfill?

Now, my eternal friend, the circle of my life is almost complete 
The days for me are numbered 
How many more times are we going to salute each other is unknown to all but to God
Before we say our final goodnight, let me thank you for every sunrise and every sunset,
For all the sunshine and all the storms you have brought to my life
Without them an empty vessel, without any experiences would I have been,
Useless to everybody and worthless to myself
When tomorrow you, my wise friend, come and unable you will be, me to awake,
Be not disturbed 
Another dawn, brighter than yours, will have taken me into its arms to console me With her everlastingly divine love!

    Our days are numbered. Someday the cycle of days would start in heaven for you and this cycle is everlasting. God's grace be with you. My friend Demetrios.

    Demetrios wow. This touched my heart. So ingenious of a thought. What a symbiotic relationship you have with each day. Creating experiences in your life through God given time. Exceptionally written. This one is above seven. I know seven is the highest rating. You deserve a 10+.
