My Friend

O my English friend,

Smile.

Let me see your smiling face.

O my Canadian friend,

Dare.

Let me see your daring heart.

O my Indian friend,

Think.

Let me see your thinking mind.

O my American friend,

Rest.

Let me see your resting life.

O my other friends,

I think of you, too.

I love you, too.

I adore you, too.
