বন্ধু

বন্ধু মানে মনের কথা আদান প্রদান করা।

বন্ধু হল জীবনে এক চমক, গোপন করা ।

বন্ধু যেন মরুভূমিতে এক আশার জলাসয়।

গ্রীষ্মের তীব্র রোদের তেজে এক শীতল আশ্রয়।

খরার সময় বন্ধু যেন এক পশলা বৃষ্টি,

এক অদ্ভুত সম্পর্ক, যার হয় মনের টানে সৃষ্টি ।

সুখের সময় বন্ধু যে হয় আহ্লাদে আটখানা ।

দুঃখের সময় সেই হয় এক স্বস্তির আস্তানা ।

পথ চলতে হোঁচট খেলে, যে সামলায় শক্ত হয়ে ।

দুঃসময় দেয় সৎবুদ্ধি আর শক্তি, কাটাতে মনের ভয় ।

বন্ধু মানে সেই রাত জেগে, শতরকম গল্প করা।

বন্ধু মানে তার দায়িত্ব বটেই, নানা গোপন তথ্য রক্ষা করা।

বড় হয়েও যার সাথে মনে পরে পিছনে ফেলে আসা ছেলেবেলা,

কত সরল মনের গল্প আর অজস্র মশকরা।

চোখ বন্ধ করেও যাকে করা যায় বিশ্বাস,

বন্ধু হল তিমিরে এক আলোর জ্যোতি, এক স্বস্তির নিশ্বাস ।

– সোহিনী দত্ত ।

 

Translation : A friend means one who can pour their heart out to each other. Friends are a surprise for us from life, which is kept secret from us. Friends are like an oasis in a desert, that gives hope. In the strong heat waves of the summer, friends are like the cool shelter. A friend is like  the rain that happens at the time of drought. A strange relationship, that results only when hearts bond. A true friend will be happy when you are happy, while in bad times, your friend is someone who would help you feel some relief. When you stumble while walking, a friend is one who would hold you strongly , and not let you fall. At bad times, your friend will give you good guidance and strength to overcome the fears in your mind. A friend means one with whom you can chat endlessly, till late nights. A friend means one, who by virtue is given the responsibility to keep all your secrets. Even after growing up, being with whom reminds you of your childhood , the sweet innocent chats and the numerous fun times you shared. A friend is one on whom u can rely blindly. He or she is like a ray of light  in a dark night, a sigh of relief.

[The entire poetry is about the importance of friends. Friends have been compared to different occurrences in life, in which you would feel their importance. They are the ones who make us feel good when times are bad, shows us what’s right and wrong , and make us feel relieved, by being with us, when we lose all hopes. ]
