Best Friends Forever


By Shreya Nayak , Class 10, Canossa High School, Mahim, Mumbai

Like irreplaceable jewels of a crown 
Like the big red nose to a clown
Like the fragrance of a flower 
Like the spectacles to the blur. 
Each day of my life I think 
What would I do without her. 
From creepy telepathy 
To having the same graphics on our tees 
From going places together 
To being the best gift givers. 
I have realised how important 
A best friend can be. 
From being book monsters 
To acting out our favourite avatars 
From being the photo bombers 
To coincidentally omitting the same chapters
From hating each other
To not being able to live without one another 
We've grown up a lot, for sure!
