Poetry: The Key of Life


“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine”  (Thomas Jefferson)

The Key of Life

The Key of Life is our only treasure;

You laid it deep into my soul like a pearl

And I hid it in you like a secret pleasure.

I utter “friendship” thinking about the pearl

That shines so pure and bright within our hearts

And it whispers that we’ll never be apart.

The core of each soul has a drop of love in it,

But some people do not show it a bit;

Life is a depressing journey without a friend

Who gives a meaning when one lends a helping hand

And one’s there by your side to encourage you.

I thank God for sending me friends so kind and true,

Who bless my days every time I hear their voice

And they support me when I make a choice.
