Ah, this one deserves to be in the book, Pat. You've got my vote!

I liked this very much.

Just wanted to thank all of you for taking the time to read and reply.
I have to agree, this is true love and my friend has never let me down,
and a perfect example of God in human form. I feel blessed to have this loving person in my life. Glad you all relate.

Again, thanks to each of you.

Hugs and love, Pat

Pat, I've read this 3 times tonight and cried each time. I have a best friend and darn I wish I had written these outstanding, loving, caring words!

Of all your beautiful, elegant and fantastic poems, this one is by far my most favorite.

Huggles and a vote, Marti

Marti,

I remember your comments, very similar, first time I posted this.
Friends like this are true blessings, indeed. Mine phoned me last night, even tho. now w. computer and instant IM, or e-mail...voices still are so special to hear... Call yours, (in Kansas City???) bet she'll be thrilled! So glad you enjoy this.

Sue, WhiteRose, Joyce and Ron,

Thank you all....Hugs & Love, Pat

As a teenager, my favorite song was 'What The World Needs Now (is love sweet love)'. Your poem reminds me of that. Good one!

Wow!!! I really love it! If this poem wasn't accepted yet, I would've voted for it! Now it'll go straight into my library.

Thanks for sharing, Patricia!

OhPat~
Just how 'reflective' is this ?

'My best friend is love,
she I can ~feel~.

For she is ~respectful~
of who I am, just as I am.


For she is ~giving~
wanting nothing in return.

For she is ~humble~
placing self below me.

For she is ~trustworthy~
as I lay my private thoughts
before her, she'll not betray.


For she is ~open-minded~
considering our differences.

For she is ~truthful~
teaching me honesty.


For she is ~strong~
allowing me to be weak.

For she is ~courageous~
allowing me to lay
my fear upon her.

For she is ~non-judgemental~
allowing for my imperfection.


For she is ~wise~
knowing when to only listen.'


My goodness lady ... this poem alone would justify purchase of the book~

I have found YOU to be just the quality of friend you describe~

The replies you've received certainly reflect that those who know you through your friendship are fortunate indeed~
