My most sincere gratitude to each and every one of you who took the time to stop by and read this poem... It was merely five years in the making, but it was surely worth it...

Good things always take time to come around.  I'm glad that this sat, and simmered, and waited for the right words to join it.

Duet again.

Life has bestowed me glorious dreams
And God has offered all I need
Rewards have been the milky creams
That render gold from earthly deed

But now and then a soul has found
This heart where it would gently wend
And leave a footprint on the ground
That I could trace it now and then

When twilight shadows veil the blue
And I to heaven‘s door ascend
I will recall the one or two
That I could truly call a friend

There is no greater place by far
Through mazes where the foot has crept
Than that one door that stays ajar
Whose threshold waits your yearning step

And I must say, that these two friends
Have left their doors, a keyless port
Through which the soul is free to wend
And bask in depth of their accord

Thank you, dear poets, for your beautiful words.

This is such a lovely expression of true friendship.
Reminds of the song,
"People who need people are the luckiest people in the world.

Beautifully done you two~

Nan & Ron,
How appropriate that friendship should be penned by two! And I like the history of the poem. It makes it even more meaningful. Excellent.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Came back again, just because this is such a beauty, and a friendlier write doesn't exist.
Also, to put it into the library in case I forgot the first time around.
THANK YOU!

Oh Gosh and I almost missed this beautiful tribute to friendships that last forever.

The internet can create a mess, but I've experienced nothing else but good things from it.

Thank you both for friendship given.

Obviously, friendship has magically written these poetic words!  Nan, Ron, this is a treasure.  Thanks for the wonderful duet.

Thank you Mysteria for bring this beautiful duet up. I still try to find time to read all Nan's poem. it will  take a while to get here.

This is a very Beautiful poem from two good friends. The poem itself spoke more. Ron's part was like "I am fortunate but why" Nan's part was more like answer and warmly comforting a hesitate  heart.  Very beautiful!! You two shall write more and more duets.
love both of you.  
Nan will be notified of replies
