My gift came in the mail today A plain yellow envelope and A 34-cent stamp of love Address to me in the pen strokes of a caring hand I knew not what message was sent But already I felt a smile cross my face I eagerly tore open the envelope With the excitement of a child on Christmas morning
A card with a simple front Not of a picture but one with a feeling The breath of autumn
Opening the card I began to read It spoke of times gone by And times to come Were confident understandings And loving friendship will prevail Trusting one another Enough to end what was And start anew To let time change What must be changed And to grown and learn from time
Touched so deep my soul smiled How could a few small pen strokes move me so I was far from reality in exploring my soul Bathing in the warmth a friend could give When a voice brought me back Asking a simple question Why was I crying Not knowing what to say I smiled and walked away
A simple gift of words From a simple friend
Thank you for all you have done my friend We know of a gift we were given A gift from God One we made From love So small is the life So depended on us Lets walk together Letting god mold our lives
“ X “ has so many meanings So many feelings But “ X “ to me Is the marking on the greatest treasure map Were riches untold are buried deep within And just knowing that I hold a map Were “ X “ marks the spot Of true friendship Is priceless
-Let love be symbolized by a circle. It is whole and complete, no beginning or end. Stand in the middle and it surrounds you.
