Smile please...

Ubiquitous seemed the gloom,
Inevitable seemed the doom.
Along, you came with your flair
Pushed away all the despair.
Naturally came hope,
Problems were easy to cope.
Because you, a smile, I wore,
Life was a burden no more.

This is a dedication to my sweet friend Leo (Vinay, Vinu). When I told him that I was not feeling ok, he wrote me this. (It is an acrostic so see the first letter of each line)

Means a lot to me
Your friendship

Feel you're there
Really by my side
In gloom or cheer
Every moment
Not forgotten
Dear baby you are

Radiant when u smile
Awesome when u write
Star always to me
How I wish I was
In your heart Always

Pray I do
Love you a lot
Ever if i stop
All that would mean
Still everything would stand
Even God would laugh

Say he would indeed
My dear Vinu, you
Indeed will have your wish
Love her till your last breath
Even from heaven u can see her

Oh yeah, it spells "My Friend Rashi, Please smile." Isn't he the best? 

This is my entry to 3WW. Words this week were : Ubiquitous, Natural and Burden
