My Friend

My friend is loving and trusting and able To handle all my faults and my talents Which can be burdensome I understand; She desires to be with me, quite brilliant We share hopes, dreams, and everything higher Greater than the earthly bounds and textures My friend holds my heart and loves me always Even when I fail to care about her But that is rare, I love my friend deeply She is a part of my life that I hold My friend is everything I dreamed to be And a heart that is made purely of gold My friend is a light in the deep darkness She lifts me to places I could not be; On my own I can’t, but with her I can We have fun, fun right to infinity My friend is just like me but different We are the same, but have other features Our souls meld together a loving sense We hold firm as one by a great mixture

    What is a friend? a single soul dwelling in two bodies- Aristole....'Ours souls melt together a loving sense we hold firm as one by a great moisture.' I love your ending Russell. Warm Smiles, Connie
