Vantage point

There may be a golden ship
There may be a diamond ship
But there is no ship
Like your friendship

At 15, kids will write the corniest things and yet mean them so sincerely. This "poem" is from the "autograph book" I owned when I was in 10th.
It may not be soulful enough to be nominated for a Pullitzer or ( an even bigger honour) to be put in the 10th Std English syllabus, but I know that the friend who wrote it, did so with a clear heart.

Friendship, a wonderful concept. So easy, so gentle, so pleasant, and yet so common. Not like that elusive elf called True love.
