Tangier-Martel, Morocco

I still relive those first
Precious moments
In my head;
I should call you, brother,
Dear friend;
For your friendship is real

Deep as the beautiful
Bluish sea;
You wholeheartedly supported me

With special fondness
In every little leap I made
In this short journey of life;
You are still doing the same

Till the present eventful day;
This noble epistle is for you,
Dear brother;
To immortalize the sincere feelings

And the unforgotten lore
In days of yore and the future
Welling up inside my heart
Over the momentous years,

The morrow for sure
Will narrate the colorful life story
We share together
With lifelong heartiness.
