Well I am back.  Had a lousy time but here is one to get me started again.


To A Friend

My love for you is unimaginable
Like the ocean has for the shore
Only less forceful
Like a plant has for water
Only more so
Like the planets have for the sun
Only greater
It sustains me when I am broken
It gives me life when I am dying
It hangs on when I let go
It helps me up when I fall
With a love like this
All of my fears are driven away
With a friend like you
I am more complete
Thank you for being my friend

I adore this poem!  Friends are so very important...and few are those who can be spoken of the way you have written. What a wonderful creation, and if it is okay with you, I would like to share with one of my very special friends.

Thank you all.  Sherry and anyone else, this poem was written for friends.  So if you have a friend you would like to share this with.  You have my permission to do so.

I really do like this poem....you can tell from it that your friends are very important to you!! This made me think something....one can also find strength, warmth, comfort, or wisdom through a mere stranger who only sees you once and has very few words for you!!

Keep on writing....you do it well!!!
Take Care
