Brace

Never had I thought
to take a pause, to take a stop
to think for a while where I’m heading to
in this rapid rat race
whatever achieved seemed less
instead of bringing me happiness
it took away all my satisfaction
I guess this happens when we choose the wrong direction
only seeing and believing by the worldly eyes that seem blind
if we want to find
the happiness and love of a true kind
running and running in this race
I had completely forgotten my own face
till God gave my life a brace
when it gave me a chance
to know you and to know from you
how satisfied and contended were you
no matter how small but your joys were genuine and true
no matter scarce and few
your words always had sincerity’s hue
and it’s all because of you that I value heart’s contentment
greater than any worldly achievement
 
Some may fancy it
some may envy it
when they see the medals on my shoulders
but you’ll only realize it when you’ll grow wiser and older
that all what we been running after
couldn’t be equal to a single laughter
which we share with our heartfelt friends
who always stand by our side and lend
us the helping hand, the guiding hand
whenever we are in need
without having us to even once plead
I feel I’ve been very fortunate
to have a friend who is so considerate
so kind and truly compassionate
it’s how God gave my life a brace
when it gave me a chance
to know you and to know from you
how satisfied and contended were you
no matter how small but your joys were genuine and true
no matter scarce and few
your words always had sincerity’s hue
and it’s all because of you that I value heart’s contentment
greater than any worldly achievement
