Loving a friend

When ever I sit and remember,
 how warmth and tender,
the chest of love is,
   I think of how,
 how loving a friend is.
Sometimes I smile to him in love,
in other times,I melt in awe,
 a friend can be so cold to me,
 a pal can be so dear to win.
I try calling him in times of war,
 but receives my call when I am wan.
How difficult to love such friend.
 Loving a friend,is so difficult to do.

    Charles, I think true friendship is a precious flower that needs nurturing. That is how a dear friend described it to me, and we have been friends for decades. She drove 400 miles in a blizzard to attend my father's funeral. Once you have a friend, you are so blessed. Carolyn

    People are not always what we want them to be. The secret is to appreciate them for what they are. Interesting thoughts for reflection. Welcome to Poetry Soup! I hope you enjoy your time spent with us. Best wishes with your writing. Karen
