Never Alone




Every time I look
Deep into your eyes
I see the pain you carry
And I hear your sorrowful sighs.

I feel the emptiness
Within your longing heart
From the loss you sustained
When your love did depart.

I hear the hollowness
Every time you speak,
And I know that every day
Under your burden you grow weak.

But when your heart grows heavy
And your spirit must take a stand
Remember me and know
That I offer you my hand.

And every time you feel
Your burden is too great to bear
Just call out my name
And your burden I will share.

When darkness seeps into your soul
And threatens to turn your heart to stone
Just think upon our friendship and
Remember, you will never be alone.


This poem is written in dedication to my very best friend Rick.  I know how much he has been through in such a short time, and I want him to know that no matter how bad things seem to get, he always has a friend that he can turn to.


 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

Great Work Terry, Loved this one ...

particularly the lines at the end
...
Just think upon our friendship and
Remember, you will never be alone.


Warm Regards and keep writing,
sudhir.

The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.

Terry* How beautiful this is, not only the lines and how they read but the gesture to Rick, I'm sure he will be very touched by this.  It is always a comfort to have a friend there to catch us if we fall...

"Just think upon our friendship and
Remember, you will never be alone"


Words written straight from the heart, there is nothing better than that.
Thank you so much for sharing this with us as well as with Rick.


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

TerryW~
WONDERFUL !

Friends like you make the world a better place to be.  There is nothing as comforting as knowing we have a friend who cares about us - shares our joy and our sorrow.

Sharing of our hearts is what makes the friendships immeasurable.
What you give a friend ... you give yourself.

Terry,

My mouth was left agape upon reading this treasure of a poem.
Such beautiful words....such a beautiful meaning.
Now only if we all had friends like you.
