To Dawn, My Best Friend....


Your friendship means the world to me
So important I hope you see
Without you there to lean on
All my hopes would be gone

I know that you are always there
With compassion beyond compare
Willing to listen to my fears
Offering comfort for my tears

With your written or spoken sentiment
Encouragement and support is sent
Straight to my heart it goes
Helping me see the highs, not just the lows

A kind word or understanding look
Is all it really took
For me to know that you cared
More than most others dared

Now there is a bond between us
A special rare kind of trust
Friends for life through good and bad
When we are happy or are sad

Me for you and you for me
That is how it will always be
Our paths have crossed for a reason
Together they'll stay through all seasons



 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.

Tracie,

Thank you!!  Yes, we are very fortunate to have such a unique bond.  She about cried when I gave this to her, but it is how I feel.  She read it and said I feel the same.  Can't ask for more than that!!

LW this is great..
the sweetest gift of poetry is when we can
show someone who we love our feelings and give them a keepsake of it
thanks for sharing this for the challenge.
