Of dreams and reality
What is friendship?
I guess you all taught me that.
I landed at your door,
With broken heart, shattered dreams.
You opened the door wide
As if a queen is coming
Offered me a dazzling throne
Placed on my head a golden crown.
You loved every word I said
Your arms clutched mine
As if I am a living treasure
Which God has placed in your palms.
Your deep, true love transformed me
I truly became an empress on throne
The throne of your love, wearing a crown
The crown of your whole-hearted adoration.
