Harvest Of Friendship - Poem by David Harris

For Carol Gall & Patti Masterman

Friendships can come
from many places near and far,
sometimes even half a world away
with faces we cannot see,
but their touch we can always feel.
Invisible hands reach out
across the miles to gently touch another’s.
Unbreakable links are forged,
bonds never to be unbroken.
Silent voices of strangers are suddenly heard,
welcomed in from the silence
to a voice never heard.
Strength is gathered in
to defeat the demons
of a sometimes lonely life
as we harvest friendships into our lives.
Friendships and distance no longer matters.
Hands now link to chain a message
that no matter who we are
a candle of hope is on the horizon
to light up many lives.

    There is a rather lovely blend of the biblical and the personal in this warm-hearted poem about people that matter. PoemHunter is a wonderful vehicle for the sharing of words and hearts. Patti and Carol are certainly worthy recipients of your dedication. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
