Friends – Free Verse.
What is it that make friendship so unique?
The answers that I find are so oblique,
Acquaintances believe in give and take
When there are things to do, decisions to make
Friends believe in sharing and in laughter,
With no record of owing kept thereafter
Good and ill shouldered just the same,
Forgiveness following swiftly after blame.
Undemanding love that shines a light
Into the darkest moments of the night
Illuminating the corners of my soul
Making tattered hearts once again whole.
No heckling tales of who did what and when
But remember stories of what happened then.
Laughter and tears are shared with a whole heart
As though no time had past when you're apart.
