A Faithful Friend - Poem by Walterrean Salley

You’re like a big sister.
I miss our chats and girly talk.

Time has brought change.
Life charts its own path.
And though miles apart
Thank you for still being there
In times of need
As I am for you.

Understanding.
Somehow, you’ve dealt with
My ways knowing that it’s 'just me'
Going through some things,
And that I’d come out
On the better end.

A gift.
It’s been thirty years of true
And lasting friendship,
Which is more than
One could hope for.
Thank you.

    Such a beautiful poignant piece, its sad because I've never had any one to really call a friend, so this makes me cry because its something I've never really experienced. Im proud of your gift. (Report) Reply
