“To my special friend”

“to my special friend”
(by: Melvin Delamente)

Hidden behind a smile there’s loneliness,
So painful, but I must express…
My heart played like a game of chess,
Vast emotions I can no longer suppress.
You give me hope
When I’m alone
You give me hope
When all’s lost.

The months pass and we grow stronger
When our days grow shorten and nights longer
Just know I’ll always be there for you
A place to cry somewhere for comfort and truth.
You listen
When I’ve got nothing to say
You laugh
Even my jokes are lame.

If you need a shoulder to lean on
And sometimes you feel that you can’t go on
I’ll be on your side to comfort you
I love you my friend,
In so many ways
In dark and dreary times we walk through them
Trusting not in our inner light and freedom
Cannot walk alone if we are together
Darkness ends when we all are tethered.

I want to know what you’re thinking
If you’re okay
I want to be able to enjoy my time with you
Remember all times laughing together,
Sharing secrets and hanging out
We always said friends forever,
And knew what each other was all about.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
