    As Natural as Autumn's golden leaves ~

    As Eternal as fragrant Spring's breeze ~

    Captivating as early dawn, the coming warmth of summer's sun ~

    Invigorating as a brisk winter's eve ~

    To my mind you bring tranquility and peace ~

    To have you as my friend makes my heart so glad,

    A confidante with whom to share feelings , whether happy or sad ~

    To me you mean the world ,

    More precious than

    Gems ~ Diamonds ~ or Pearls

    God truly blessed when He sent your loving tenderness ~

    For you are my best-est friend you see

    And forever beloved you shall be ~

    Thank you Sister AngelicSage and Sister MzblkAngel,

    I'm sorry, I kinda figured this may not be the proper forum for my bit of poetry peace... just thought it might be of encouragement to some meloncholy Sister out there like it was to my best friend whom I wrote it for... And yes..you may forward it to the poetry forum.

    Thanks again,

    Akilah :spinstar:
