"A bag full of dreams"

I knew a sweet little girl
Who had a bag on her shoulder
She often opened and closed the bag
"It was a bag full of dreams" as she referred

She was the only child of her parents
They loved and nurtured her dreams to the fullest
She grew up to a beautiful young lady,
Who still had the bag on her shoulder

She met a smart handsome man
Who also had a bag full of dreams
"They would be best couple ever"
Poeple said as they came across

But as the time played its roll,
The bittter truth strikes them hard
Their dreams were never the same,
But they had a life to live along

But as the saying goes,
"Life is short and live it to the fullest"
Now I see happy couple having arms around,
Struggling togehter hard ,to build on their dream.

I knew his number,
Before knowing him...
Coz his was next number
In the roll book, after mine...

We were together
For Exams, for experiments..
And even caught together
For being mischievious...

Then the time came,
For us to part....
And he wrote these lines
Just for me...

"The world out side,
Is so rough and unkind..
If I could be of any help..
Do let me know.."

He went on his way
And I had mine..
We had no contact
For years that passed...

Then one fine day,
I thought of my friend...
Will he remember me,
After all these years?

Send a card?
Or make a call..
Or travel all the way down
To see him how he is?

One fine day
I was near the phone...
Holding his number
Trying to reach him...

Finally I called ..
And the voice answered..
As I asked for him
I could hear a weep

Sorry dear,
You are a little late..
He has reached the world,
Which is so nice and kind..

There was no way,
I could let him know .
That I was in need of help...
I was in need of a friend like him..
