When nothing significant works for us

Every door for coming out

We find closed fatefully

No course of action

Seems open for us naturally

A fellow comes to our succor

Opens with own helping hands

The closed doors ajar

And provides the possibility of openings for us

This alliance so supportive

To pull out of any state

That ‘time’ presents itself  

For each other so caring

When the need arises.

Once amity is established

Then the friendship is further cemented

By the basketful of trust

Which gives the friendship

The stamp of permanency

This friendship could be between those who meet us daily

Or, possibly

From beyond the borders, we have not traversed ever

Between. those whom we have not met any time personally

This thread of closeness is felt by us instinctively

Because the indelible stamp of the God is affixed on this friendship.

  1. The friendship could be between people living in the same locality and also outside our locality. It could also be between people who have not seen each others personally.

    Kindly appraise the poem and offer your kind comments.



  2. Reblogged this on Dr. Mario O. Laplume and commented:
    Please welcome the sage words of Harbans Khajuria, a great thinker and writer, besides being a close spiritual friend of mine across the oceans. This nice little article is a great homage to the redeeming power of an honest, affectionate and stimulating relationship with our a few of our fellow human beings. Yes, we can only claim a few good friends in life. Harbans is one of them for moi. Enjoy his writings.

  3. Good morning and thanks for this great article, my dear friend across the oceans. I liked it so much that I immediately re-n-blogged it. I just took the liberty of adding a picture of Caravaggio that I love: supper of a stranger with his newfound friends at Emmaus where he told them about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.. Your words are also prophetic, my friend. A big hug.

    1. Dr. Sahib: Good Morning.

      I am very simple soul with all simple ideas – the praise you have showered, I think, on the face of it seems exaggerated.

      I am happy you liked the write-up and re-blogged the same.



  4. Thank you, dear Harbans 🙂

    The more we develop love for God in us the more we develop friendship and love with everyone and as He is living in everyone, none is excluded, then everyone is our brother and sister, our friends. However, in this way as Kabir has put it: “God hates the sins but loves the sinner…”

    Thank you very much for your profound thoughts of friendship 🙂
    From heart to heart

    1. Thank you so very much for appraising the poem and giving your invaluable commentary on the same. In fact God dwells in each one of us and He wants us to have mutual understanding and friendship.
