~~~~~My Friend~~~~~


i have just met a wonderful friend
she doesn't want much
just an ear every now and then
it is so cool to just have friendship

a friendly ear to me
always there to chat
no pressure to be more than me
because she likes me the way i am

a mom to five kids and very loving
the best kind of friend to have
for she can share her insights
on motherhood with me

let's me scream and cry
when the pain of the past sets in
the best friend to chat with
that is alot like me

a hard working and dedicated mom
that wants the best for her kids
she now has a great man in her life
so it helps to have a friend to talk to

sometimes we share our poems
before we put them online
and let the other say their mind
so that if there are problems
we can fix them(at least on my part)

it's kind of funny
that we started talking by emailing
and commenting to each other
through this very site

it is amazing that i found
a friend like her
here of all places
to find friends

so all i can say is
that i thank you for your friendship
and hope that all things go well for you
as you lead your life

sweet kids to keep you happy
such a great man to give you love
oh how i appreciate having another friend
like you to help keep me sane

thank you ever so much
for being a friend to me
for you see Lesa K
you are my friend

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
