    For You


    there are few that i've met in my life
    willing to put up with all of my strife

    overlooking my flaws as if non-existent
    giving me love perpetually consistent

    a true friend you are, and always have been
    thank you for caring, helping me mend

    forgive me for not living up to my part
    let this be the beginning of a brand new start

    all the deep and dark issues have faded away
    bright and sunshiny now replaces the gray

    the road was filled with bumps, twists, and turns
    so very blessed that our bridge did not burn

    we are able to cross it together again
    holding hands, thanking God, and saying Amen

    we've shared so much, many nights, many days
    left many in awe, shocked, and amazed

    at the way we connected on so many levels
    each overlapping like unopened petals

    never leaving room for even air to get in
    folk were beginning to think we were kin

    like married or something the bond was so great
    no matter the issue we could always relate

    a friendship like ours comes straight from above
    For You ... i'll always have nothing but love


    :heart:

    This joint is very heartfelt. I don't believe you've ever opened yourself up in your poetry to this level and shared it on the forum....but I could be wrong. QQn :D

    You better cherish this friendship. Friendships like this don't come along everyday.

    Thanks for sharing.

    So true, when you meet such a person, you cherish them like the jewel that they are, never forgetting their worth. Great write poetess.
