Forever Friendships

Forever Friendships

Forever friendships 
Live beyond fear and misgivings,
Ideas and fantasies flow freely.
Each one trusts knowing.

Understanding awakens new insights.
Heartfelt talks bind love’s soul.
Grudges give way to forgiveness.
And forever finds flavor among friends.

Beyond anger and disappointments
Failures and weakness become forgotten.
Annoyances give way to pleasure.
And calmness comes calling, quickly.

Bravely sharing selves,
Friends walk through life, caring. 
Away from gossip and scandal,
Delicious days delight in dignity.

Anticipated thoughts thrive.
Hopes listen, patiently recognizing.
And the soul of a forever friend enriches.
Merging life on earth to eternity.
