A Special Friend Poem by Almedia Knight-Oliver

A Special Friend

Rating: 5.0

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.

Tender, with a childlike simplicity. I think you would make an excellent friend, Almedia. You strike me as a good soul. Your verses are honest and unpretentious.
