For a true friend: Written for Sudha Mohan, 1995

You have been a dear friend,
Though a bit demented.

You helped me survive low spirits,
For which I’m ever indebted.

Prattling with you I never tire,
Your amity I very much need.

Even your eccentricities I admire,
So, of these lines take good heed.

Now beckons a future ambiguous,
And when in vocation, love and temperament,
Appear challenges prodigious,
Never say die,
Keep aiming high,
And this ideal, remember me by!
