“There’s a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
Birds of the same feathers fly together.
Our friendship was so strong,
I still wonder what went wrong.
You were my shoulder to cry on;
I was quickly in giving you aid.
Time is precious in the world!
We used to share our quality time together.
Refreshing, strengthening each other,
Sharing our goals, values and dreams.
I used to look up to you
We used to share our surplus
Our background is almost the same
I called you my friend, admirable one!
Where ever I go, I make your name known,
No matter the distance, you were with me.
I’ve never thought one day; you’ll sideline me
Because of my misfortune in wealth!
I thought we’ll be together in sickness and in health
But you are the one digging for me a pit of death
You don’t wish me good things
Where you’re, I stretched my empty to you
Would you remember my effort in you?
You made me realise that I’m nobody!
I thought we were “birds of the same feathers “
We had no wings during our youths
That’s why we used to lick the dust of the ground
Suddenly you grew wings and soared away
I don’t wish those wings to be unplugged from you
Beat by beat, you forgot about me,
You no longer call upon my name;
We no longer speak the same language,
Because now I’m no longer in your league!
One day, I will close my eyes; I will expire!
Would you remember me? I wonder!
