Friend in pain

Since; I heard that my friend has lost everything; I'm in pain
We were very, very, close friends for not any personal gain
Always helping each others; as both were in same train
We started drifting away from each other in a straight lane

He was living a lavish life with booming business with brain
Was in wholesale business running very well with his friend
I was happy; seeing prosperity with him; with a happy end
But I was not expecting a total loss being a man of brain

He was born rich; so I wanted him to continue prosperity chain
But who knows what turn life will take to put all of us in pain
Even my analysis; won't be able to find reason of failure; man
Since I heard collapse of his business; I am constantly in pain

See what a co-incidence; can't help since both are in same train
The day heard of; constantly thinking what happened to my friend
Believe me; this was unbearable; not ready to hear; being sane
As friend of lifetime; wish a speedy recovery of losses being sane

I wish; I could be with him at this difficult time of his life in pain
He is in need of support; and healing touches to overcome pain
I know as a brave man; will endeavor his best to embark on train
Pray to God; give courage to come out of situation a hope remain
