A Faithful Friend

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.

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

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
