No color in friends

We met by chance so time ago
Her heart was young and kind and full of glow 
We shared a bond and an interest the same 
And from the first moment I met her I felt no shame 
There eyes were so sharp and frightenly untamed
Just because her skin wasn’t the same 
It didn’t matter much to me 
Because she was a friend I plead
I was questioned why she entered my home 
And watch her hands she might take something and roam 
But I didn’t feel that way at all 
People were trying to make me feel small 
She soon became pregnant and all alone
I went out of my way to support her decision
Because she had a dream and a vision   
I couldn’t wait to see her child 
With big brown eyes she looked at me and smiled 
I’ve grown to love that sweet baby girl 
And my black friend Denise I ‘ll hug against my skin of pearl

    It is really sad when people judge one by the color of the skin or something one person does. Love don't see color. Jesus died for us all. Good for you Laura don't allow people to pick your friends for you...

    This is a wonderful poem, Laura. It's all about the heart. Good friendships come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. To have a best friend or 2+ is a blessing to be cherished. Love, Dane
