Books, my most persistant companions (FPFS ~ Day 4)

When I was five,
I went running to Mom;
Complaining and whining
I don’t have enough friends.

That was exactly when
Mom introduced me to the enchanting world of books;
With the first tender handshake,
Books have been my most persistent companions till date.

I grew up with magical fairy tales
Till poetry lured me with its captivating verses;
Within novels and short stories
I found my secret, small paradise.

The aroma of books
Reminded me I am never alone;
Cute and funny fictitious beings
Ensured my day never end without smiles and laughter.

I left myself a little
In every book that I read;
During times of adversity
They came back to me as my loyal savior.

Books made me wiser
And made life a lot easier;
For me, a life without books
Is no less than a body without soul.

Happy World Book Day to all the bibliophiles out there!

I have been tagged by my friend Kiran and my brother Sachin to take part in the Five photos Five stories challenge (FPFS) which is- Post a picture for 5 consecutive days and attach a post to it fiction, poem or short write-up. It can be anything to suit your taste.
