I want to be your friend
Us together to the end
What do you say
Can it be this way
That is how it used to be
Not you, not me, but we

A new way to look at things
Give new meaning to these rings
The symbol of our love
View the tapestry we have wove
The circle will not be broken
If we honor the vows we have spoken

I promise to you
These things I will do
Love, honor, cherish, and accept
Setting aside the tears I have wept
So that we may look ahead
And lay to rest the dead

The broken shattered dreams
Split apart at their seams
Never to be mended
For there are new ones to be tended
They were built by us two
For me and for you



 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

Denise...thank you.

Sven...thank you.  Yes, I have found my voice and it is clearer than ever.  My muse is back again and it is like old times.  All I write is inspired by a very special person and it is because of his love that these words flow so freely from my heart.  He has once again opened the door and placed his heart next to mine.  For that, I am blessed.

Marge...thank you very much.

Cheryl...thank you and I am trying to avoid one at the moment.  It is one of my favorites too.

Terry...thank you.  My muse seems to be singing to your soul frequently.  That is nice to hear.  Very sweet!!

Sven....thank you and yes it is amazing what it will do for your life and writing.  I guess he was there all along...I just was not in tune with what he was saying, but now I am starting to hear him loud and clear!!!

Nightloy...thank you and I believe in trying to iron out the differences first.  I agree too many people run to divorce court at the drop of a hat.
