Your Kindness

Your thoughtful heart opens
to all who approach.
Soldiers happily march
to the tune you hum.
Angels gloriously dance
as they feel your warm embrace.
Eternal candles glow brighter
at the whisper of your name.
You cast your spiritual inspiration
as a means to enlighten.
You've given me your kindness
as a soft shoulder to lean on.
You are my definition of friendship
as long as I shall feel emotion.
Years may trickle past swiftly
but your kindness lights my every day.


I wrote this for a friend for her 36th Birthday,
after I finished and read it I felt I could have been describing the way I feel about God in my
life. Amazing how certain people in our lives can make us feel.

A beautiful and touching tribute to her friendship Lost Dreamer!
I do believe that our friends ARE Heaven sent....

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

It is amazing how people in our lives can make us feel.  The ones who make us feel good and whole are the special ones!  You're friend that you wrote this for should feel quite special!  Great job!

Very lucky friend in deed.....and very lucky to have you.  Can we be your friends too  

 I have learned that the pain of a lost love will fade, But the memory of having loved will last forever.

LostDreamer -
What friend would not like to receive
a thought as wonderful as this.
You and your friend are fortunate,indeed.

I first thought of a little boy
at play with your imagery of
'Soldiers happily march
to the tune you hum.'

Very nicely done.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to each and everyone of you for your kind responses. I am blessed to have a friend in her, she's heaven sent. Friends make us who we are in our everyday lives. I feel very blest to be a part of this wonderful family of poets existing here at Passions.
