A thousand friends online on facebook chat
But not one, to sit beside, face to face and chat
So many of them pining on WhatsApp
But none to come home and enquire what’s up?
Thanks to the internet! A click and millions of friends appear at high speed,
But how many are there in person with you at the time of real need?
Life brings us to different destinations for a living
This life is eventful yet empty; are we really living?
I hope we go back to the times
When friends were real, family was near and life was life indeed
When we spoke to people and with kids sang rhymes
Had time to play, sing, dance and read!
