Poems on Friendship


Friendship Poems

by Sri Chinmoy

I am so proud of my friends,
For all of them are
Genuine peace-prophets.


Each and every friend of mine
Rightly deserves
My heart’s gratitude-tears.


A real friend may be
Far, very far in miles,
But near, very near
In heart-smiles.


A new friend is a new hope-sea
Inside my heart.
A new friend is a new hope-sky
Inside my mind


Friendship openly persuades our minds
To do the right thing
And secretly convinces our hearts
To become the right person.

– Sri Chinmoy


“Friendship is harmony, friendship is peace, friendship is bliss. Friendship is harmony. Mutual harmony removes all dark conflicts. Each individual has opinions of his own, but when friendship becomes the connecting link between two persons, all conflicts are removed and they become one.

Friendship is bliss. When friendship lasts, it offers bliss. The Kingdom of Heaven is established when love inundates our beings, when the feeling of oneness reigns supreme and there is no sense of separativity. At that time illumining, fulfilling and perfect Perfection dawns in our life of aspiration. Thousands of years ago the Vedic seers offered us the message of bliss.”
