A Special Friend - Poem by Almedia Knight Oliver

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-
it grows sweeter with age

Your friendship likens a precious brooch-
gives cause to hold close to my heart

Friendship can’t be packaged and delivered-
it is the “great work” of God-not man made.

Dedicated to long time friends: Odette Whitaker and her husband Johnny Whitaker
I’m so blessed to have you as my friends.

    This Complicated World is Ironic - is full of Absurdity
    Life is Simple but it is so difficult by its Passive Simplicity
    Life Difficulties are attached more and more to Complexity
    In spite of all, A SPECIAL FRIEND makes your Life Tranquility.
