Intro: I would like to devote this poem to my great friend Vijay, as he's the one who first exposed me to the 'Lay" form( all lines must have 8 syllables and rhyme) Friends from my youth are all elapsed One died sadly by his people, ditched From someone with an odd wedding, To those who share beds for sleeping One wise taught around the world's way Other spanked by car on roadway. From the one, they tease mate's bad show To one who blames self, pals bestow Other heart laid away and read, newspaper, laying on his bed None told us life would be this way We weren't told round daily decay. I'd call on your birthday with kind. I'd kneel to soothe your gloomy mind. And I'd grasp what you vibe me to. I'd sob on your chest as dust drew. I tend you as your grin sieve hope. All this will be trailed by a rope.

Your pen never needs any external inspiration my friend. You are born with the aptitude to create. You wrote this poem in such a short time with rhymes and syllable restrictions--I know I would be struggling with it for days. I do appreciate your kind gesture, Lasaad.
