True Friend


I thought of you

And it raised a smile

As for a while your image

drifted into mind

Then that kind love and understanding

that is the heart of you

The light, the love

All that you follow

All that is true

I am privileged to know

The real you!


True to your spirits It is my truth I hear

You say quite often and that message rings out

Many listen and understand you

Sometimes it seems it falls

on stoney ground, yet all around

those seeds flourish and hence

nourish as they grow

Into fulfillment


Then remembered words and kindness

and gestures of love

are received as they are given,

Clasped upon as they become

a new way of seeing and being

a kinder way of Loving + Living
