Friend


There you stood, modern, pretty and cool
And I was intrigued
Standing outside nursery school.
My small son clutching my hand,
Trying to understand, why he had to stay
Here in this building to play

Our eyes met
And we talked, as we walked away
Leaving our sons to face their day.

Then we both knew, we would be friends.

You were quite different
Interesting , unique, creative and sweet
That attracted me
As I saw in you, a heart that was true.

 

And that is how it has been
Now through three decades
We have seen bad times and good.

Yet we both understood
How precious a friendship can be
As it has my friend, for you and me
