When I Wish I Had a Friend
by Ron Carnell & Nancy Ness
I tread through miles of long lost years
Through happenstance of meetings chance,
And wonder why close friends appeared
When most I craved a friendly glance.
A friend revealed is nere perchance.
Life’s trek of course Divine impend.
Designs not met by happenstance;
Asunder though most days may wend.
My road is long, each step unclear,
From dimmest birth to final ends,
Through laughing voices, fallen tears,
I treasure most my closest friends.
In heartfelt bond of finest blend
From miles afar or whether near,
To cherish ever-dearest friends
Enduring comfort year to year.
Is life perhaps just length of years,
Assessed from birth to death’s entreat?
Should it be weighed in hopes and fears,
And measured just in metric feet?
Life’s first to final moments rend
Comradery to quell our fears.
Best savor moments we may spend
As autumn falls and winter nears.
Or is there more to life than that,
Some shining marks along our way?
Of landmarks littered ‘long our path
And memories of where we stay?
Our paths shine brightly day to day
Enlightening moments to revere.
Each touched by friendship’s loving way;
Sweet memories throughout the years.
I stand on edge of precipice,
Near journey’s final, fateful end,
To look into unknown abyss
And find I yet was blessed by friends.
