I would not want to but live,
whereby I would not e'er meet
a life and its tender being,
his treasures I would greet.

I would not want to let slip by,
a solitary soulmate on the path,
would I were to comfort him,
feed his soul, lend a staff.

Nor would I keep this being
from his life-long journey's trail,
only hope that he would recount to me
all the good, and all of his travails.

Journey on, kind soul, keep the flame of life well;
for our meeting, in my heart, will your memory dwell.

WOW sunshine, you have puffed up my poetic ego to more than I could ever imagine...

Thanks so much for this one.
Such a tribute, I wish to contribute...

The flame is kindled in my solitary heart,
Friendship is but life's own little art,
A fellow-being far or near,
Should forever long to be a traveller.

The past one carries, while he moves,
The future for him is the end of the road,
On sight of a friend, he slows,
To pass on greetings of the soul abode...


Warm regards,
Sudhir

 In any moment of decision,
The best thing you can do is the right thing,
The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Perhaps sire, in the by and by
I waved at you, and you at I;
and in the chasm of never-known
a sense of familiarity to each was shown...

It is so nice, Sudhir, working off of each other's talents...thank you so much for your kind words...I will hope that you will remain inspired by every kind poet who resides here at Passions...thank you...

Beautifully done.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"
