Friendships

With the wisdom in my heart I must agree For at times it knows what I cannot see. People in my life may come and go, But only a few I want to get to know. Sincerity is the most admirable trait. That's my thought; not open to debate. In a woman, it's apparent in her every word. In her writing, her love and kindness is heard. She shows signs of being humble and meek, She's the kind of friend I will always seek. In a man, there are qualities I admire and embrace. Vestiges perceived though I've not seen a face. A touch of Robin Hood, Braveheart, Sir Galahad. I'd be a loyal friend of this combination of a lad. If you find such a person it quite likely is a sign that such people can be found, even if it's online.
