Many a dark
and blackened eve
You grabbed hold of my hand
in love and trust
Taking me places
unbeknownst to me

I, older in years
yet you being the wiser
I reveled within
my smiles
given to me
by you

I miss those times

Now, it is my place
to be wise
and ask you
to not follow
but stand beside me
proud

This life is but one step
to purity
my friend
And you are standing
with key in hand

The door awaits . . .


John, may you see this and smile
and know that you are not alone
Sue

Sue- Very beautifully done, and a great tribute to your friend.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

As I've said to another, a friend of yours is a friend of mine, and this will no doubt be appreciated.

You are the best, truly!

Thank you sue,
you always helped me alot,
you have always been true,
and against evil you plot.

I have given you my thanks with stealth,
since some time now,
and now i wish to bow,
in reverence to your health.

You are a blessing,
a blessing which leaves me not.
Even when i seemed uninterested,
to meet me is what you saught.

I hope I can be of any use for you,
to make you smile,
or turn the skies blue.

I'm sorry, nonetheless,
I am not in conditions for much,
even when my heart you touch
my body, in these moments, seems soulless.

I am in the worse of storms, yes,
but when the storm is over,
as the drunk men get sober,
I will be no longer a mess.

When that time comes,
I wish not to be your patient,
but to be your equal when the wind hums,
and feel as a rejuvicinated ancient.

Perhaps then we can speak well,
of these horrid times as a simple tail,
no matter how many times we had to wail,
peace and harmony will come, i can tell.

Miracles do not happen alone,
and I am seeing how to make them happen,
perhaps I have sins to atone,
or I must let the storm pass in my cabin.

Until then,
I will yell still,
and I will find peace when
my freedom is fulfilled.

Until then, farewell,
and stop speaking of ranks.
We are both equal and you know well,
reason why I give you my thanks.

Perfect for my mood today.(alarmingly mellow) This has volumes of knowledge, and i enjoyed absorbing every last bit.
