What Is It?

When you can say what is
on your mind
and know that you're
understood;

When you can cry your
eyes out,
and later hear words
that make you feel good;

What is it that draws
you near
so you know you've
nothing to fear;

When you feel needed,
warm, close
and sincere,

What is it that
makes each day a
little happier and bright,

When you're able
to see things
in a new and different light;

What is it that
you know will
never finish, never end;

not known simply as a
person or being,
but remembered warmly
as a very dear friend.

This is so beautifully touching, Sunshine!  
A poem that has certainly stood the test of time. It is timeless, indeed!

Sunshine, my friend-

My stars ! ... your mom let you
write while in the playpen?
You know what they say ...
OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABE'S !

Well, BABE ... this is one heck
of a poem.

Because this is a sad kinda piece, Im not going to tell you how much I enjoyed reading it.
Im also not going to tell you that you have done a great job at wording this.
I will tell you that you have a talent for writing.
Very Nice

I had thought this perhaps a bit juvenile to be posting at my age, but I thought...what the heck...

it is so nice to have received such delightful comments on it.  Thank you all.
