A Friend in Deed

When darkness spreads across the land, and storm clouds form above; a friend will be there, outstretched hand, and offer you their love. They stand beside you through the dark, and always without strings, to help you make it ‘round the mark; the wind beneath your wings. Whenever doubt forms in my mind my writing is sub-par; with your encouragement I find my muse becomes a star.

A true friend will remain still and will have no other place to go other than to help you up when in need. And in return, you should be happy to do the same when your help is required. Inspirational truth. Well penned! ;)

I have missed reading you - I've missed most things Soup because I've been as busy as a CPA at tax time with no personal time to focus. This is pure John, lovely with smooth golden flow that is touching! Poetry hugs ... CayCay
