***friendship*** Poem by Ray Lucero


Rating: 2.8

When you sail troubled waters
I’m your oaken ship

Where you stand
I’m firmness neath your feet

When you stroll a summer’s day
I’m your umbrella, rain or shine

When you’re unhappy
I’m your circus clown

When you’re afraid
I’m a warm embrace

When you’re joyous
I’m your playmate

When you take ill
I’m a soothing balm

When Heaven calls you home
I shall be a loving archive of your life


(To best friends everywhere)

How marvelous to have your strong, sturdy ship under my feet...or your umbrella to cover me...rain or shine. I like this one best of all I have read so far. Scarlett
