Confidant - Poem by Jayl Morris

The Queen and I've been friends for years.
Why, when she's troubled, I dry her tears.
When she smiles, I know to smile.
We've been friends for quite awhile.

I'm her 'prince' but laughingly.
She'll be my friend for eternity.
When she's down, I give her heart.
I don't mind, it's my best part.

When she holds me, I feel fine,
We've been friends for a long, long time.
I know her kingdom doesn't understand,
The pressures being Queen demands.

The military and her government,
Gala balls or some message sent.
So when she calls I'm always there.
The Queen and I've been friends for years.


1972

    It a good thing to have a confidant, someone you can trust in the time of need. (Report) Reply

    Yes, it is indeed! I wrote this poem with my best female friend in mind. The one I should have married, but did not. She now is retired, I believe, from teaching others at Montavallo University, in Alabama. I still pray for her daily.
