    It came to me two days ago
    Like a long lost friend
    One I haven't seen in two years
    Magically leaving the garage floor and into my arms

    "Hello old friend
    So good to feel you in my hands
    Feeling as good as you did so many, many years ago
    When you gave my broken childhood love
    You, my ship of comfort
    In a sea of poverty"

    I knew it so well
    Knew how it would come alive
    Once we began our hardwood dance

    "It's been too long dear friend
    And we still do this so well
    Not really thinking about a doctor's word
    He doesn't know does he?"

    It gives me everything I need in life
    Happiness, sorrow, pain and pleasure
    Mental stimulation
    Physical exertion
    A complete wall of protection
    Where inside, I am one with my movement
    With my lifelong friend
    The instrument of my love and comfort

    "Don't know if we'll ever dance this way again
    Time is my constant shadow
    While you old friend are timeless
    Against better judgement
    I awakened you
    Knowing you'd understand
    I needed you these past few days
    And you were here
    With love and comfort"

    Oh what a feeling

    BE

    There are many

    things we gravitate toward for love and comfort...I've read this over and over, BE, and I'm smiling. Your use of the language is so clever, but I know of your love for the 'hardwood dance'...do your dance....find your comfort in the dribble and the basket... some of us need our Teddy Bears, or security blankets, or big billowy pillows...

    touching piece,

    T

    Old Friends

    As I read through this, I started to remember things that I thought were gone from my mind--this style of writing is evocative in that it forces one to open their eyes and look at themselves after looking at you--well done--Amun-Ra
