Say how much they mean to you with 'A Poem'
Nothing can bring out the beauty of your friendship better than a heartfelt poem. Here's one such poem that you can gift your friend in the form of a scroll and watch his/her face light up!
“I have your back and you got mine,
A friend like you is hard to find,
You're the person I go to when life gets hard,
You pull me out of miseries, heal my scars.
You're the one I seek when I need a solution,
You have a way out of almost every confusion.
You're the ray of hope when it gets dark,
Like the last surviving son of Stark,
It has always been a pleasure to spend time with you,
My partner in crime, words to define you are few.
Let's just say we make up a great pair,
A very Happy Friendship Day, my dear!”
