I've been so blessed to have friends as great as I do, so......here's my humble gift. Thank you all here at passions, as well as my friends that know me personally.


Like shimmering sunshine, you've flooded my life.
Your gentle love has lifted me from a blackened abyss.
With a soft word and warm embrace you've ended my strife.
Not a single moment with you do I ever want to miss.

Your gentle love has lifted me from a blackened abyss.
Once I swam in a churning pit of unending despair.
Not a single moment with you do I ever want to miss.
To discover a friend like you is a sparkling jewel so rare.

Once I swam in a churning pit of unending despair.
The wounds to my heart burned from the salt of my tears.
To discover a friend like you is a sparkling jewel so rare.
When by your side, my haunting demons I no longer fear.

The wounds to my heart burned from the salt of my tears.
With your silken wings of grace you wiped my emerald eyes.
When by your side, my haunting demons I no longer fear.
With a tender touch, you've taught me to take wing to the sky.

With your silken wings of grace you wiped my emerald eyes.
You've understood my fragile soul that I try to desperately hide.
With a tender touch, you've taught me to take wing to the sky.
If not for you, my flickering candle of hope would have died.

You've understood my fragile soul that I try to desperately hide.
With a soft word and warm embrace you've ended my strife.
If not for you, my flickering candle of hope would have died.
Like shimmering sunshine, you've flooded my life.

WOW WOW WOW.
Amazing. this is a poem that is descriptive of what I am feeling right now with a new found friendship. I have written several poems for her but none as intense and beautiful as yours.

great job. I'm glad I searched through
the archives.
