Florida's Foreverly Shores
When things don't go right
in the world outside your door
I wish you shelter from the storm
and loving friends to keep you warm
A hug, a reassuring word, a smile,
these gifts are yours for taking
When friends are close at hand
the friends of your making.
In building friendships
we assure ourselves of this,
someone cares if we are in need
and nothing about us goes unheeded.
Your friendship is so precious to me
it's what I get from you in return.
If I've done my share of caring
it's what you give back to me.
How easy it is to be sincere,
not swayed by others.
You are loved my friend
You're what matters to me
I would not ever give you up
to anothers bargaining greed
They are either inside the
circle of our friendship
or they wait outside
looking in through
~*The pen of the poet never runs out of ink, as long as we breathe.*~
