Friendship


Friends are special to me,
For without them,
I just wouldn't be.
They bring you up,
When your feeling down,
Making sure your emotions
Are safe and sound.

When I'm feeling all alone,
I simply reach for the phone,
Then life seems so much more secure
And my friendship is reassured.

As I glance out my windowpane,
At the quiet morning rain,
I begin to think of you again;
A soft warm glow begins to grow,
Then my tender heart knows,
That you'll always be near,
To wash away my innermost fears,

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
