Endowed Friendship


When one family member
Finds one as a Friend
And that friendship interwines
One with the other.
They think like you
They feel what you do
While nobody thought you knew.
You see what they say
You hear what they do
And everything is positive
And endowed seemingly
Just for the two
Or maybe for a few.

There developes a Kinship
That's above no earthly other.
Its a kind of nurture
That resembles closer than a brother.
Kin that bears one anothers burdens
Kin that stands beside you
Kin that helps you to endure
Kin that encourages you through
And enjoys your every laughter.
No longer friends but kin
Yes you're definitly family
Kin that last beyond our end.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
