Selamat Hari Persahabatan Sedunia!

Pertemuan yang tidak dipinta,
Bermula dengan segan silu,
Kemudian bertepuk tampar gelak ketawa,
Perpisahan yang mungkin terduga,
Pemergian yang adakalanya ditangisi,
Bila dikenang kembali,
Membuatkan terhayal seketika sendiri,
Tidak mengira adam mahupun hawa,
Silaturrahim diikat dan dierat,
Takdir yang menentukan segalanya,
Itulah persabatan,

Happy World Friendship Day to you all my friends outside there! Where ever you are and what ever you do, you all are remained in my memory forever.




Friendship isn't always easily described. The Eskimos, they say, have a hundred different words for snow. Unfortunately, the English language isn't quite as innovative, though it has vast opportunities to differentiate meaning. Certainly, Love is one of those opportunities. And so, too, is Friendship.

Instead of different words, however, we're stuck with simple adjectives. Close friend. Best friend. Childhood friend. Intimate friend. Trusted friend. Beloved friend. But whether you use adjectives or different words, few could deny the nearly infinite meaning in such a simple word.

Friends are special people. We can't pick our family, and we're sorely limited in the number of them at any rate. Society and mores (and often our own conscience) dictate we select a single mate. But our friends can be as diverse and infinite as the adjectives we choose. Our friends, in a very real sense, reflect the choices we make in life.
