The poem is below.


How farest thou, beauty of all times
The one who once lit my life
Gold and silver have I none
But would a gift whole-heartedly offer –Pure and Exquisite
Best wishes from a true friend

Apologies for my absence – physical
But my heart present was –felicitating
With sweet memories of the past
And its accompanying agonies – unavoidable

So, we learnt to change the things we can
And accept those we cannot
But of most importance is that we live a fulfilled life
So that in the final analysis
We would at each other’s eye look and say
We were, we are and would continue to be good friends 
Come rain, come shine

Forget not these words, for they shall 
Be celebrated someday – grand
Fare-thee-well, dear beauty
